"The majority believes that everything hard to comprehend must be very profound. This is incorrect. What is hard to understand is what is immature, unclear and often false. The highest wisdom is simple and passes through the brain directly into the heart."
"Far back in history, there is evidence that men who have attempted to solve the riddle of water have been bitterly attacked. Every attempt to explain the nature of water in old books has been demolished in the later editions. In any case, maintaining the sense of mystery about water ensures the prosperity of the capital intensive economy, for financial interest thrives only on a defective economy. If the riddle surrounding the origins of water were solved, it would be possible to make as much pure water available as required at any location; in this way vast areas of desert would become fertile. As a consequence, the selling values of the produce would sink so low that there would be no more incentive to speculate, or to develop agricultural machinery. The concept of unrestricted production and cheap machine power is so revolutionary, that the way of life all over the world would experience a change. Maintaining the mystery of water, therefore, maintains the value of capital, so every attempt to come nearer to an explanation is attacked."
"The human is a being created according to Nature's laws and is therefore dependent upon them. In the course of time our magnum opus, our self-created pseudo-culture, has become a meaningless and incoherent monstrosity. Through the immense power of
technology it has reached such gargantuan proportions that it almost equals the power of Nature herself. At the very least it is already
able to interfere destructively with her great life-giving functions."
"Man hält mich für verrückt. Mag sein, dass man recht hat. In diesem Fall spielt es keine Rolle, ob ein Narr mehr oder weniger auf der Welt ist. Wenn es aber so ist, dass ich recht habe und dass die Wissenschaft irrt, dann möge der Herr sich der Menschheit erbarmen."
Viktor Schauberger - Comprehend and Copy Nature (Documentary of 2008)
The first film about Viktor Schauberger’s life’s work. A comprehensive survey of historical facts, current research and various practical applications into both technology and the natural world.
Today the Austrian forester Viktor Schauberger is considered to be a pioneer of modern water research and the holistic observation of Nature. As early as the first half of the 20th century he gave urgent warnings of the consequences of uncontrolled exploitation of the environment. As a way out he proposed a radical rethink and the development of totally new concepts of energy production, in harmony with Nature. Schauberger formulated his “C & C principle”: first one has to comprehend Nature, and then one should copy it.
The applications of his ideas and his inventions include devices for refined drinking water, spiral pipes for carrying water with reduced friction, environmentally-friendly river regulation, as well as power generation from water and air using the principle of contraction and inward vortexing.
Viktor Schauberger - Die Natur kapieren und kopieren (Dokumentarfilm, 2008)
Der erste Film über Viktor Schaubergers Lebenswerk. Eine umfassende Bestandsaufnahme historischer Fakten, aktueller Forschungsergebnisse und vielfältiger Umsetzungen in Natur und Technik.
Der oberösterreichische Forstmann Viktor Schauberger (1885 – 1958) gilt heute als Pionier der modernen Wasserforschung und der ganzheitlichen Naturbeobachtung. Schon in der ersten Hälfte des 20. Jahrhunderts warnte er eindringlich vor den Folgen eines ungebremsten Raubbaus an der Umwelt. Als Ausweg propagierte er ein radikales Umdenken und die Entwicklung völlig neuer Energiegewinnungskonzepte im Einklang mit der Natur. Schauberger formulierte sein „k & k – Prinzip“: man müsse die Natur erst kapieren und dann solle man sie kopieren.
Zu den Umsetzungsversuchen und Erfindungen zählen Apparaturen zur Trinkwasser-Veredelung, Spiralrohre zur reibungsmindernden Leitung von Wasser, naturgerechte Flussregulierungen sowie die Energiegewinnung aus Wasser und Luft nach dem Sogprinzip und durch Einwirbelung.

Hidden Nature: The Startling Insights of Viktor Schauberger
This title pioneers a new Science of Nature. It offers striking new arguments against GM technologies. It proposes startling solutions to our energy needs. It includes a foreword by David Bellamy Austrian naturalist. Viktor Schauberger (1885-1958) was far ahead of his time. From his unusually detailed observations of the natural world, he pioneered a completely new understanding of how nature works. He also foresaw, and tried to warn against, the global waste and ecological destruction of our age. This book describes and explains Schaubergers insights in contemporary, accessible language. His remarkable discoveries - which address issues such as sick water, ailing forests, climate change and, above all, renewable energy - have dramatic implications for how we should work with nature and its resources.ReviewA timely book on a profound subject ... reveals a timeless wisdom requiring urgent attention. -- Satish Kumar, editor of Resurgence MagazineAn admirable job of making Schaubergers work accessible and relevant to our age without compromising its artistic integrity. -- Dr Mae-Wan Ho, biologist, author, and editor of Science in SocietyAbout the AuthorAlick Bartholomew read Geology and Geography at the University of Cambridge, followed by graduate studies at the University of Chicago. He has commissioned and published many books on Schauberger and has been working with Schauberger material for over twenty years.
