The Fourth Phase of Water: Beyond Solid, Liquid, and Vapor
Scientist, Gerald Pollack and colleagues at his University of Washington laboratory have discovered that water is NOT always H2O. When touching most surfaces, water transforms itself into so‐called Exclusion Zone (EZ) water, whose formula is H3O2. EZ water differs in all respects from H2O. And, there is a lot of it, everywhere.
The Fourth Phase of Water: Beyond Solid, Liquid, and Vapor documents this fundamental discovery and uses it to explain common everyday phenomena, which you have inevitably seen but not really understood.
Professor Gerald 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.
"A paradigm shifting
Subsequent experiments show that this fourth phase is charged; and, the water just beyond is oppositely charged — creating a battery that can produce current. Light charges this battery. Thus, water receives and processes electromagnetic energy (light) drawn from the environment in much the same way as plants. This absorbed energy can be exploited for performing chemical, electrical, or mechanical work.
These new discoveries are rich with implication. Not only do they provide an understanding of how water processes solar and other energies, but also they provide a foundation for a fresh and ultimately simpler explanation of natural phenomena ranging from weather and green energy to biological phenomena such as the origin of life, transport, and osmosis.
Bubbles and droplets have similar structures. Droplets form first, then transition into bubbles (Chapter 13).
Water may act as glue. When it contains charges opposite to those of small interfacing particles, it may bond those particles together. So, you can build sand castles (Chapter 8).
Clouds build from tiny water droplets. Droplets bear charge. Like‐charged droplets should repel and disperse. However, when opposite charges from the atmosphere gather in between those droplets, the droplets pull together, even from afar, to form a cloud. That leaves the surrounding sky blue (Chapters 8 and 15).
Trees absorb radiant energy from the environment, driving capillary action. So long as that energy remains available, water can rise to great heights (Chapter 16).
Salt water forms a crystal‐like structure. That liquid crystal naturally excludes substances, including fresh water. That explains why streams of fresh water remain unmixed in the otherwise salty ocean (Chapter 11).
Water absorbs energy from the sun. That energy separates water’s positive and negative charges. The resulting “battery” may release charge for doing work, just like your cell phone battery (Chapter 5).
Yes, of course. However, the fourth phase is H3O2 and that phase is surprisingly abundant: it constitutes the majority of the water in your body (Chapter 4).
Plausibly. The fourth phase is crystal‐like, and crystals can store information (Chapter 10).
Injury exposes charged cellular molecules. Those molecules attract water, quickly building layers and causing rapid swelling (Chapter 11).
Built of water‐loving materials, diapers strongly bond water, layer upon layer (Chapter 11).
Positively charged water molecules line the ice surface. They repel one another. Repulsion creates slipperiness — something akin to magnetic levitation. When in short supply, however, those positively charged water molecules may instead glue negatively charged surfaces to one another, creating stickiness (Chapter 12).
Fourth phase water lines the water surface, creating something resembling an elastic sheet. Waves propagate easily across elastic sheets (Chapter 16).
Warm water stores more energy than cold water. That energy promotes the transition from water to ice. Therefore, warm water freezes faster than cold water (Chapter 17).
