You've certainly hit on something that is close to my heart. It so happens
that I'm living with the first SoSei Water installation in North America,
which SoSei World Corporation of Japan donated to us here at the Institute.
( In Japanese So Sei translates into English as Create Life.) I drink the
water, cook with it, bathe in it, water my seedlings with it. This is a
classic case of the experimenter experimenting on himself, and is
reminiscent of Timothy Leary ingesting the very mind-altering drugs he
researched. SoSei is not (yet) marketing these units in the US, and I
cannot say when they will. At the current rate of exchange of Yen for
Dollars this is roughly an $18,000 machine. I can send brochures out to
those interested if they send me $2 postage and handling.
I was invited to Japan as one of several international guests and speakers,
including Callum Coats, author of LIVING ENERGIES, one of the world's
leading experts on water. We were shown the entire water treatment process
and given a week's tour of water installations. Upon my writing up a report
of this (enclosed below) the developer of the process, Toshiharu Fukai,
decided to visit our institute in Blairsville and donate a water treatment
unit to us.
Since then (mid June 1999) we have been washing all our clothes, no
detergent. All dishes, no dishwashing liquids. All bathing, no soaps,
shampoos or conditioners. I don't use any of those things any more even
when I've been working on the tractor and come in with heavy, black grease
ground in. The surface tension of ordinary water runs around 72 dynes, but
SoSei Water runs around 42 dynes. This gives it solvent properties that
make it possible to use SoSei Water in the place of dry cleaning fluid
(perchlorethylene, aka perc) in the cleaning industry.
Here are some personal observations from living with this water. Right away
I noticed my hair and fingernails grew faster. This implies a stronger
silica process driving outward to the extremes, and as you will see from my
report there is good reason for this since SoSei Water is treated in such a
way as to remove the lime and impart siliceous influences. However, the
third step of the process, which has to do with clay (lime, silica,
clay--this is biodynamic water!) is the real surprise as you will see in a
Our septic tank drainfield had a spot where it was erupting, and right off
this cleared up. The cockroaches disappeared. I don't know why that should
have happened, but trust me it did, and I'm told this is a common occurance
with SoSei Water. My personal vitality took an upswing as well. But the
surprising thing is the effect SoSei Water had on consciousness. I always
was knowingly clairvoyant, being a seventh son of a seventh son. Insights
and dreams came to me from time to time though I often wasn't very good at
interpreting them. But now all hell seems to be busting loose. I find there
is so much I just KNOW these days. I wouldn't be surprised if you've
noticed this with some of the things I've posted this winter. For example,
I'm forwarding to Sanet from BDNow a response to someone in Australia
regarding Portugese millipedes and microwave towers that I posted yesterday.
SoSei water has anionic properties. Water is a polymer, so it only roughly
is H2O. More precisely it is (H2O)n. And actually there minor deviations in
the proportions of hydrogen and oxygen even then. SoSei Water has a certain
amount of structure of H3O2 minus, however. This makes it anionic water,
and you will see from my discussion below of Dr. Cary Reams' biological
theory of ionization that this has important biochemical implications for
aging and health. SoSei Water slows or in some respects even reverses the
aging process in the body since it tends to strip away the body's burden of
cationic sludge that gradually impairs the function of the chromosomes.
As a scientist, however, I was greatly intrigued by the puzzle of HOW did
the water process result in a water with a higher proportion of oxygen to
hydrogen? Where did the extra oxygen come from? It turns out the extra
oxygen is there in the water all along. It is what happens to the hydrogen
that changes the ratio.
No doubt you've heard of transmutation of elements--everything from desktop
fusion to biological transmutation. Maybe you haven't studied this like I
have, reading von Herzele, Steiner, Hauschka, Kervran and others. I'm well
aware that most physicists dismiss the possibility of low energy
transmutation. When discussions arise of Steiner's ideas of the
etherization of the blood or of how Tibetan adepts can sit naked in the
snow and meditate, giving off heat and melting snow all around them these
physicists just tune such things out. They walk away in cynical belief that
such fraudulent behavior deserves to be exposed if only a way could be
found to do so. Dr. Ravi Batra put it thus: The mind involuntarily rejects
information contrary to its beliefs.
Nevertheless I'm telling you that the SoSei Water process drives a small
amount of the hydrogen in water back across the matter/spirit boundary,
liberating it from the bondage of form as hydrogen and releasing it as
spirit, as ether, as life force. SoSei Water is highly charged with spirit
as a result of being turned into H3O2 minus, anionic water. I've been
drinking this stuff. I even did a seven day water fast on it where I took
in nothing but SoSei Water for seven straight days. No doubt I should go a
lot further with such experiments on myself. But radical as I may be I'm
tending to go slowly. As I started off this letter mentioning, there are
distinct similarities between using SoSei Water on myself and Timothy
Leary's experiments on himself with mind altering drugs. I would say that
SoSei Water is far more subtle and much clearer than any of the drugs Leary
experimented with, but it definitely is psychedelic.

You may find something which you seek. I believe you should at least try to
talk with them. I don't know how easy it will be. As the great Zen teacher
once pointed out, we are, each of us, always, in our own way.
Sosei water is oxidized water and they are selling machinery to make this
water. They have some farmers using it. I myself am an agricultural
researcher to whom they have donated a machine. They are also using it in
the place of dry cleaning chemicals to clean clothing.
Their process works in three stages. It manages to unlock some of the
etheric power of hydrogen in ordinary water, first by the removal of lime
by ion exchange, then by charging the water with silica by passing it
through obsidian, then by mediating this process and etherizing the water
in a third clay/tourmaline/aluminum dynamizing treatment. This unlocks some
of the hydrogen's etheric power leaving the water with a fine dilution of
H3O2. The surface tension is reduced considerably because of the loss of
some of the hydrogen as ether and the change in the hydrogen bonding
properties of the water.
I guess you may know that water is a polymer. Hydrogen bonding makes this
so, and it gives water a wonderful resonance with all kinds of vorticity.
It gives water a memory for dynamic
patterns. Strictly speaking water is not H2O. Rather it is more like (H2O)n.
Sosei Water is a classic example of taking the two polarities of lime and
silica and mediating between the two with clay. Ask me more about
biodynamic agriculture if you are interested in how this works. Biodynamics
does much the same kind of thing in a vastly different way, though water
and its memory for dynamic patterns is one of the keys.
Here was my report on what I was shown of the Sosei water process as a
member of an international panel of experts in late November of 1998 in
I sure hope you can get to the bottom of this. There is something wonderful
going on here. So sorry I don't speak Japanese.

The First Sosei Water Stewardship Conference
By Hugh Lovel
I was invited to Japan to speak at the first SoSei Water
Stewardship Conference just after Thanksgiving, '98, at Nagano prefecture
(the district of the Olympic Games) in Ueda City. This conference was
conjoined with the Fourth SoSei Users Conference in a huge traditional
style Japanese Hotel with tatamis, futons, and steamy Japanese bath--the
most wholesome hotel of all we stayed in.
Fellow speakers included: Patrick Horsbrugh of South Bend, Indiana,
founder of the Environic Foundation International; Richard Pinkham of
Snowmass, Colorado, senior research associate for the Rocky Mountain
Institute; Brad Cummings of Ontario Canada head of the Pollution Prevention
and Mining Toxics Prevention Division Ontario Region of the EPA Canada;
Professor Doktor Karl Reuß of Suderburg, Germany, Director of Poste
Graduate Study Programme/Waste Management; Lim Chong Keat of Penang,
Malaysia, archetect, urban planner and long time student/friend of
Buckminster Fuller; Simon Reeves of Aukland, New Zealand, (environmental)
Barrister and Solicitor; Callum Coats of Australia, the water expert who
has written extensively about the work of Viktor Schauberger (Living
Energies), and Errol Samuel of Australia, an environmental consultant
involved in design and engineering of environmental construction for the
Sidney Olympic Games. Missing and in an anthroposophic hospital in
Switzerland was Jennifer Green of Maine (USA), one of the world's leading
authorities on water quality. Though she could not come she sent us a
rousing, prayerful address and a very interesting video presentation
demonstrating the Schwenk water quality (drop) testing method.
Until you've experienced Japanese hospitality it is unlikely you
could conceive of it. The first outward signs are the "arigato gozaimasu"
and little bow as you are greeted, but it goes a lot deeper. Imagine first
getting there by plane from Atlanta (16 hours over northern Alaska and down
the Kamchatka Peninsula into Narita Airport) then the airport express train
and a switch to the Shinkansen (bullet train) for travel (the fastest I've
ever gone on land) over the mountains to Nagano to SoSei Headquarters.
Up until this point, everyone in Japan was polite, but they didn't
know us. Callum Coats and I were met at the airport by American and Finnish
interpreters and escorted to Nagano. Once at company headquarters, "Arigato
gozaimasu! Arigato! Arigato! down the line with little bows and grinning
Soon we were on the way in a company van to President Fukai's house
where we got to bathe in very warm Sosei Water in a deep tub with
absolutely no soaps, detergents or shampoos. Those of us waiting our turn
sat on cushions around a low table talking via interpreters with President
Fukai and each other and feasting on a beautiful assortment of rice, sushi
and sashimi out of sophisticated individual take-out containers. The
beverage? Sosei water.
I figured out my chop sticks (first I had to pull them apart kind
of like pulling on a turkey wishbone). At 51 years old I had on a few
occasions used chop sticks, but I had to really concentrate on it. Those
little mouthfuls of nori, rice and bits of vegetables or raw fish (sushi),
to say nothing of the bites of raw tuna or squid (sashimi), seemed to taste
really good. There's something about Japanese food that seems very clean to
me, though the idea of eating all that raw fish doesn't appeal to me
outside that setting.
Then it was my turn for the bath. I really needed it. I'd had a
long trip by air and another whole trip by rail, and I was tired. Plus I'd
had a painful crick in my back near my left shoulder blade ever since the
day after my workshop with Peter Proctor a month previously at Fair Oaks,
California. This pain was, if anything, brought to the fore by the
"comfort" of a 16 hour Delta Air ride, and the other demands of travel such
as wakefulness and much carrying of heavy luggage.
I sank under the warm water. I was one of the last to bathe, and,
no soaps or shampoos? It was the same bath water everyone before me had
bathed in. I wondered how clean was I going to get bathing without soap in
water that seven others had bathed in before me? Nearly all the others were
distance travelers like me. I had my doubts, but I will say this. The
Japanese with their short, deep tubs, know how to make a bath that allows
one to dive under and fully submerge. It's nothing like the long, shallow
The water looked surprisingly clean and I soaked in it a bit and
rubbed myself down from head to toe, diving under and immersing my head,
scrubbing my hair and everything. I could have soaked all night joyfully.
But there were still one or two people waiting, so I climbed out, toweled
down and dressed.
Back at the low table with all the cushions it suddenly dawned on
me that I not only felt very clean and refreshed, but that pesky crick in
my back was gone! Very interesting. Yoshitomo Nakata san was showing off
Sosei water by scrubbing the grease off the back of the stove and the wall
behind it with nothing more than a scrubbing pad and Sosei water. It seemed
to work more or less like "Purple Power" but without the chemical stench or
anything. This was the same sort of treated water we were drinking and
bathing in Very interesting.
We were given large bottles of Sosei Water for drinking and taken
to a very nice motel for the night. By early morning I was down to
breakfast, having drunk an enormous amount of bottled Sosei water during
the night. It was pretty good. Frequent urination, but pretty good. We were
whisked to company headquarters by van after breakfast and given a leisurly
tour--it was get acquainted time. I think everyone understood that most of
us had traveled great distances.
Lunch was a party, and President Fukai gave away some little
Japanese jackets with a sash--I don't know what they are called. Very nice
though. And always we were encouraged to drink Sosei water. Pretty good
water, more envigorating perhaps, though not sweeter than comes from my
spring on the farm.
President Fukai addressed us and said he would show us all about
the Sosei water treatment process. He asked please not to laugh because the
process was really very simple.
Born June 13, 1947 and growing up after the war, his father was in
livestock and dairy. Seeing one of my pictures of me milking a cow he
pantomimed how he'd mastered the art too. After leaving home he had gone
into hotels and restaurants. About ten years back his father got cancer and
died, and this made him take life more seriously. So he immersed himself in
a study of Budhism and meditation.
In the process he attained the insights leading to development of
the Sosei Water treatment process, which produced H3O2¯ or anionic
water--pure water but water enriched by mono-valent OH¯ ions. This meant
that even though this water was so mild in its action that you could drink
it, nonetheless it was so powerful a solvent and so effective at freeing up
cations that it could take the place of soaps, shampoos, detergents of all
kinds, even dry cleaning fluids such as perchlorethylene (aka Perc = the
cleaning solvent most used in dry cleaning, a serious
chlorofluorohydrocarbon [CFC] threatening polar ozone).
The model we were shown was the household size that was fitted into
water mains at the entrances to houses. The unit cost was $16,000 at the
exchange rate of 130 yen to 1 dollar, and before installation the users
signed a contract to use no soaps, detergents, shampoos, conditioners or
other chemical cleaners, only Sosei water. All existing detergents were
boxed up, removed from the household and treated as toxic waste.
THE FIRST STAGE OF THREE
Here were the essential features of the treatment device. As
Toshiharu Fukai explained, it was a simple device despite the high level
insights that produced it.
There were three chambers or columns. First the water came in and
trickled up a column six or eight inches in diameter and perhaps three feet
long packed with an ion exchange resin, which looks like tiny, amber beads.
Ion exchange resins are just what the name says, tiny resinous beads that
remove ions from solution, replacing them with other ions. Such resins are
commonly used in water treatment to take positively charged calcareous ions
such as calcium, magnesium, strontium, barium, etc. out of water in
exchange for sodium. To flush the column and restore it periodically a
concentrated salt solution is sent through the resin to drive off the lime
deposits. We were told this resin was charged and recharged with rock salt.
Here I am, a biodynamic farmer, presented with a step that removes
the lime from the water. The biodynamic method involves working with the
earthly, lime polarity, the cosmic, silica polarity and the activating,
mediating influence of clay. Right away I took interest, only to find the
next step involved silica and the final step involved clay. Imagine that!
Not many people have heard of Dr. Carey Reams' theory of biological
ionization. Reams was a self-employed biochemist that 20 some years ago
lived 30 miles away from me near Blue Ridge, Georgia. He taught
agricultural classes right up until he died, but he'd also done extensive
research into the biochemistry of aging and disease. Dr. Reams found that
as people aged they built up a cationic burden. (This is even true of the
Earth. Back in its youth there was not so much lime, but as lime was
acquired from Solar fusion, solar flares and the solar wind and deposited
as sedimentary layers on the Earth a cationic burden has built up.) Reams
tested foods to see which ones might aleviate it. The only anionic food in
hundreds and hundreds tested turned out to be fresh squeezed lemon juice.
Since water commonly had a wide variety of cations in it the only water he
found that was essentially cation free was distilled water. So for a while
he operated a clinic that supervised fasting on distilled water with a
little fresh squeezed lemon juice in it. This went a long ways towards
health and the arrest of aging with many people.
Reams was someone I knew and I'd known some of the people who took
his fasting cure. As well I had a lifetime association with a father who
fasted on water, sometimes with fresh lemon. Most folks know very little
about the healthful effects of fasting, but in prison I had fasted ten
straight days to get over pneumonia on one occasion and again fasted for
ten days because of internal bleeding from a stomach ulcer. Of course on
neither occasion did I have distilled water and fresh lemon, so I hadn't
experienced a fast with anionic water. But at least I could see there was
good reason to believe Reams was on to something.
However, passing water straight from the city water mains through a
cation exchange resin would hardly render the water anionic since the ion
exchange resin simply substitutes sodium ions for the various other cations
THE NEXT STEP
Of course, there was more than one step to this water treatment
process. Mr. Fukai indicated that in his observation of waters of quality,
such as mountain springs of renown, he noticed that the highest quality
waters occured where the water flowed through obsidian--volcanic glass.
Nakata-san showed us the inner contents of the second chamber. He
pulled a filter sock out of a treatment unit which had been in use. Inside
were irregular chunks of obsidian about the size of ping pong balls or a
This was interesting. Although the obsidian was wet and gleaming,
it did not gleam with the shiny glass brightness of freshly broken
obsidian. Rather it had a dull, matte finish that suggested etching. I
thought the slight concentration of cationic sodium ions very likely
reacted with the obsidian, forming sodium silicates, one of the most
soluble salts of silica. Since silica acts as an anion the result might be
slightly anionic water. However, from what I know of chemistry--which is a
fair bit--it looked to me like any such effects would be slight and would
hardly explain the detergent and healthful properties we were hearing
about. Neither could I see how it could explain the effects I experienced
from the bath.
The third and final step in the water treatment process--and Mr.
Fukai apologized that it was so simple--was probably the most interesting
of all. This column was made up of sections that screwed into one another.
Each was a machined aluminum cylinder in which the water flowed upward
through holes in the bottom, such as in a commercial salt shaker. Each
section was filled with a mixture of twists of anodized aluminum, a
centimeter or slightly more wide and about 4 or 5 centimeters long, a
little thicker than cardboard and twisted as if around a pencil. In between
these twisted bands of anodized aluminum were pellets about BB size or a
little larger which Mr. Fukai said were made from a mixture of clay and
ground tourmaline, a gemstone quality aluminum mineral. Moreover, the
inside bore of each section was rifled. It had a deep groove machined in a
spiral up the bore, and the upper lip of this groove was curled like the
curvature of a wave near the seashore as it just begins to curl over the
Callum Coats, the world's leading authority on the properties of
living water as well as the means of creating it, was very intrigued by the
rifling of the bore and the twists of anodized aluminum. I was equally
intrigued by the pellets of clay and ground tourmaline.
As a biodynamic farmer I'm aware that all life processes take place
between the opposite polarities of lime and silica. Clay, whose basis is
alumina, lies central between these polarities and acts as an anchor for
Many folks are aware that food wrapped in aluminum foil rapidly
becomes depleted of life forces. However in the soil, with it's covering of
organic matter, the aluminum in clay acts as a life energy reservoir,
attracting and building up life energy. If it weren't for clay there would
be nothing to store up life energy and give this to plants. Biodynamics
also places considerable emphasis on form and formative forces, and
tourmaline is one of the most highly formed--gemstone quality--aluminum
Between the rifling of the bore and the spiral and bead filler,
guaranteed to create maximum form in water flow--and the overall action of
the alumina materials--this final column activated the water passing
through with considerable life force.
Throughout the natural world where we encounter life force there is
oxygen. Oxygen is in lime, in silica and in clay. The two polar opposites
of lime and silica and their middle ground of clay cannot participate in
the life processes without oxygen. And Sosei Water was hyper oxygenated
into H3O2¯ . The extra oxygen turned it into H2O plus OH¯ or H3O2¯ with an
anionic charge. Very interesting. I looked forward to more detailed
discussion with the inventor, Mr. Fukai, if ever opportunity presented.
[After Toshiharu Fukai read this article he sent me the following information:]
"You can, of course, release all the information you have to anybody.
"I will give you some info you MIGHT NOT have here.
"The aluminum (anodized) inside the cylinders and the cylinder
itself (aluminum) cause an electrodeposition phenomenon and attract silica
that can not be absorbed into the body. That is, silica as solute in water
(silica from obsidian, ion exchange resins, and tap water) gets
electrically attracted to aluminum (twists of anodized aluminum and
"This electrodeposition occurs when tourmaline pellets collide with
each other generating electricity of 4-14 millivolts, thus letting alumina
curls and cylinders take that effect.
"People may not believe it and some might even say that we are some
kind of cult people, but the energy of running water in the aluminum
cylinders absorbs, from outside the cylinders, cosmic energies and [sic,
an unreadable word] (vibrations) of thought, making the water "Sosei
Water." That is why Sosei Water is called "vibration water" or "vibration
"So by incorporating some thought or even number into the cylinder,
you can change the energy of the Sosei Water. On the surface of some
alumina twists (bands) is embossed a number or a name of some disease.
"There is a mysterious phenomenon we have here. Silica does not
stick to those alumina bands with a number or a disease name embossed, but
it does to those without a number or a disease name.
"I think it is a wonderful world." --Toshiharu Fukai
