Victor Schauberger and Fun on Wikipedia

This month (November 2013) I came across a page on Wikipedia that had a few spelling mistakes/incorrect uses of words, so I decided to sign up, pop in, and make the corrections needed.

I felt quite chuffed with myself, having taken my geekiness to a new Big Bang Theory level.

Of course there are apparently those that find fun in making naughty changes to entries, perhaps slipping in silly words or false facts from equally silly sources. The silliness really paying off when such alterations or additions are then quoted in reputable publications as if they are fact. I too would snigger at this. But no, I must not do that!

Since my first round of changes I have added a whole paragraph to another page. This involved adding a reliable reference. It took me a while to click the right buttons, but I got there in the end, and thus added another string to my bow of chuffedness.

mosquitoAnyway, I was in the process of reading the book The Mosquito Coast by Paul Theroux [link]. The film of the same name features Harrison Ford so you may have seen it. In the book, based in the 1970s, the Harrison Ford character (Allie Fox) mentions “degassed water” and when I googled this I learned that this story was real [link]. I was also aware that I had read something similar a few years back.

bluefiresIn 2005 I read the book Blue Fires by Gary Hyland [link], this is a “non-fiction” book about “the lost secrets of Nazi technology” such as “UFO” technology. In the book the author talks of contributors to the technologies and in relation to the topic of water this is Victor Schauberger.

When I headed over to Wikipedia to find out more about this character I found the Austrian’s page pretty empty. This was quite disappointing. However, when I clicked on the Talk button I was bombarded with reams of information. Basically I had stumbled upon a lengthy discussion, and arguments, about why the main page had been stripped back to the bare minimum.

You can compare the two pages here:

Here are some thing stated on the Talk page and reasons given by contributors:

  • “Unsourcable claims are made about Schauberger’s life, such as ‘meeting with Hitler’ and being held ‘captive by the US’.”
  • “This man is stranger than fiction.”
  • Conspiracy theorists and pseudoscientists cite his work.
  • Points of view (POV) are used and the quality of citations are an issue throughout, with sources not meeting Wikipedia’s standards.
  • Schauberger’s work was unorthodox so therefore so are the sources.

In the end I found this Talk page more insightful than the actual page about Victor Schauberger, and it was pleasing to see such a vibrant group ranting on behind the scenes, even if some of the comments boiled down to childish arguments, such as what the definition of an encyclopedia is! It also made me appreciate that what details make their way into the ‘final cut’ on Wikipedia are not necessarily the be-all and end-all of a topic, especially about such things I find interesting, which often seem to inspire conspiracy theorists and/or not have their basis in documentable facts.

Sirian SealI have since found some other online pages with details about Victor Schauberger, and his legacy. He has a list of patents to his name [link] and his work lives on in topics of ‘natural’ and ‘free energy’ and sustainable living [link], and also in what I would consider on first glance to be dubious “gadgets” [link] – reminding me of the claimed powers of triple-spirals [aka Sirian Seals link] and blade sharpening pyramids [aka pyramid power link]. I even found a connection with his work and another topic I have read about this year (akashicin Science and the Akashic Field [link]): the idea that ‘information’ is encoded into life:

“Inspiring photographs of ice crystals which carry a ‘signature’ of the water’s quality or of the ‘information’ that they carry, demonstrating that water retains a memory of energy impressions made upon it.” – Messages From Water Vol 1. by Masaru Emoto – http://www.schauberger.co.uk/books.html

Sirian Seal – Merlin

In episode 1 of the 5th series of the BBC’s Merlin TV series, the triple spirals of the ‘Sirian Seal’ makes an appearance.

In this instance Merlin asks the Dragon about the “druid symbol [he has seen]: a black spiral, within it a thin yellow coil”, The Dragon states “It is the mark of Ovates, a Druid seer.”

I have mentioned triple spirals in previous posts (see below). In the Illustrated Encyclopedia of Signs and Symbols it say that “The triple spiral is often referred to as the spiral of life and was used consistently in Celtic art for nearly 3,000. One of the most famous examples appears in the ‘womb’ chamber of the megalithic structure at Newgrange, Ireland…” and these days, as you can see, it, and other similar symbols, feature in films and TV shows, sometimes in a serious capacity like here in Merlin, and in Harry Potter (Deathly Hallows Part1) in the form of the “Deathly Hallows” symbol, but also seemingly in a mocking sense in films like Scary Movie 5. I have also seen the triple spirals in Second Life. Signs and Symbols goes on to say that “It represents the Triple Goddess – maiden, mother and crone – who is in turn associated with the phases of the moon (waxing, full and waning) as well as the birth-death-rebirth cycle…” I suppose one could stretch the meaning of the symbol to refer to anything where three things are involved.

"Deathly Hallows" symbol and "Sirian Seal"

“Deathly Hallows” symbol and “Sirian Seal”

In the case of the BBC’s Merlin, there the symbol was brought together with the Druid seers, the Ovates. While in reality the symbol and the Ovates are probably two unrelated themes, simply brought together for entertainment purposes (I can find no other link), the ‘Ovates’ have some basis in history (and also in modern day Druidry). On the website http://www.druidry.org (The order of Bards, Ovates and Druids) it states that “In ancient times an Ovate was a prophet, seer, healer and diviner. In modern times, an Ovate is one who studies or practices herbalism, healing and divination within a Druidic context, or who has entered the Ovate level of training within a Druid Order.”

Chasing Gooses #3

Back in November I was getting back into my writing again after a little lull. I was looking over my previous writing and I was reminded about the first ‘Chasing Gooses’ piece I wrote which was about the Sirian Seal and how I had dreamed about the symbol following the viewing of Harry Potter which features “the sign of the deathly hallows”. [link]

Then later that day synchronicity struck. I was exploring in the virtual world that is Second Life and I spotted a statue that featured the ‘Sirian Seal’. This was a call for me to return to the topic, which on paper I did, for a brief while – I had intended to post to my blog at that time – but I let it pass.

Today, over a month later, I was again in Second Life, though not exploring on this occasion. I was just sat while I was writing up notes on my previous night’s dreams. I was looking back to last January’s dreams with the view to writing a blog topic (or sequence of blog topics) on my most noteworthy dreams from past 12 months. On that first page of my notebook were the sketches from that night’s dreams that featured the symbol for the ‘Deathly Hallows’ as it is used in Harry Potter. Just moments later someone mentioned in local chat in Second Life a film that I had heard the name of but wasn’t any more familiar with – that film being irrelevant to the point of this post, but me heading over to www.imdb.com to find out more is not.

On the home page of the site that is a database of “movies, TV and celebrities” I saw featured Scary Movie 5 and I clicked on to view the trailer for that instead of looking up the film I had intended to.

Moments later I was muttering to my self the words “oh my f%$&ing god” as one does in these deja vu moments as I was presented with the following images:

scary_movie5a

scary_movie5b

scary_movie5cThe film will surely be terrible, because as you can see by comparing the final two snapshots from the trailer, that even the trailer has managed to include a continuity glitch – the pages of the book do not match when the camera angle changes (assuming they should have).

Of course, typical to the Scary Movie franchise, it’s purpose is to ‘rip-off’ such things from other films and make a mockery of them. “Much of the humor of Scary Movie relies upon specific references to other contemporary films… Many scenes and jokes parody or reference other films outside the horror film genre.” [wikipedia]. But for them to find their way to me at that moment has once again left me a little stunned… and caused me to write yet another ‘Chasing Gooses’ post!

It is curious to me that Wikipedia lists the following Parodies for this fifth installment of Scary Movie, but doesn’t include Harry Potter, so I am left to wonder where the symbol came from if it was a film other than Harry Potter: [link]

  • Black Swan
  • Paranormal Activity
  • The Hunger Games
  • Fifty Shades of Grey
  • Madea
  • Inception
  • The Final Destination series
  • The Child’s Play series
  • Rise of the Planet of the Apes

The meanings of the individual symbols: [http://www.dreammoods.com]

  • A circle “symbolizes perfection, completeness, immortality and/or wholeness.”
  • A triangle “symbolizes … aspirations, potential and truth. It represents … spirituality: the body, mind, and spirit. If the triangle is pointing upward, then it signifies the masculine…”

As many conspiracy theorists will make clear, the circle in the triangle symbol, and it’s variations, are common throughout the world, especially under the topics of freemasonry and the occult – http://www.crossroad.to/Books/symbols1.html. I wrote a little more on this topic under “Grail Conspiracy” – [link]
