World renowned scientist, Dr. Gerald Pollack, takes us on a fantastic voyage through water, showing us a hidden universe teeming with physical activity— providing simple explanations for common everyday phenomena, which you have inevitably seen but not really understood.
For instance, have you ever wondered…
How do clouds made up of dense water droplets manage to float in the sky?
Why don’t your joints squeak as they rub together?
Why do you sink in dry sand, but not in wet sand?
How does capillary action manage to raise water up a 100 foot tree?
Why does warm water freeze quicker than cool water?
Pollack uses a recent and fundamental scientific finding— EZ water—to help explain these and many other head-scratchers.
When touching most surfaces, water transforms itself into so-called EZ (Exclusion Zone) water, also known as structured water or fourth phase water. EZ water, whose formula is H3O2, differs dramatically from H2O. And, there is a lot of it, everywhere.
This award winning book provides ample evidence for the existence of EZ water. Pollack writes in a clear, eloquent style. Whimsical illustrations and simple diagrams help get his points across in a reader-friendly manner perfectly suitable for non-experts.
Praise for The Fourth Phase of Water:
“The most informative, eye-opening, mind-blowing book that I ever recall reading.”
-Henry Bauer, Dean Emeritus, Arts and Sciences, Virginia Tech
"The most significant scientific discovery of this century. What strikes me above all is the elegant simplicity of [Pollack’s] experimental approach."
-Mae‐Wan Ho, Director, Institute of Science and Society, London.
"Dr. Pollack is one of the pioneers in this field, and his discoveries can be expected to have important implications."
-Brian Josephson, Nobel Laureate, Cambridge University.
What mysteries lurk in the depths of a glass of water? What makes the wispy clouds of vapor rising from your cup of hot coffee? Or the puffy white clouds hovering in the sky? Why do the bubbles in your pop get bigger the longer you wait? What keeps Jell-O's water from oozing out? Why does your tongue stick to something frozen? And why don't your joints squeak? Questions such as those have remained unanswered not only because they have seemed complex, but also because they require that scientists pursue a politically risky domain of science: water research. Scientists trying to understand the social behavior of H20 do so at grave risk to their reputations and livelihoods because water science has suffered repeated fiascos. Water scientists have been virtually tarred and feathered.Undaunted, one scientist has navigated the perils of water science by conducting dozens of simple, carefully controlled experiments and piecing together the first coherent account of water's three dimensional structure and behavior.Professor Pollack takes us on a fantastic voyage through water, showing us a hidden universe teeming with physical activity that provides answers so simple that any curious person can understand. In conversational prose, Pollack relentlessly documents just where some scientists may have gone wrong with their Byzantine theories, and instead lays a simple foundation for understanding how changes of water structure underlie most energetic transitions of form and motion on Earth.Pollack invites us to open our eyes and re-experience our natural world, to take nothing for granted, and to reawaken our childhood dream of having things make sense.
