I recently read about an experiment done where researchers poured two glasses of water and kept them in separate rooms. To the one glass of water, they played soothing music, they laughed in front of it, and they spoke to it, using “positive” words such as “happiness” and “energy”. To the other glass of water, they played recordings of babies crying, of people screaming and they spoke to it, using “negative” words such as “sadness” and “horror”.
When each glass of water was frozen, there was a huge difference in the ice fractals. The water that had been treated kindly, for lack of a better phrase, formed symmetrical patterns in the ice that were aesthetically pleasing. The water that had been treated poorly had formed jagged, sharp and uneven ice patterns that looked scary and even ugly.
So what’s the big deal?
Well, humans are made of 97% water.
