Ice- the Great Magician

Dear Readers,

[FONT=&quot]Japanese researcher Emoto San, has discovered the amazing powers of ice crystals but he was by no means the first.

You know, if one was to predict it, ice should not float, but if it didn't life of Earth would not be possible. Ice has the peculiar characteristic of expanding rather than contracting, as would be expected. Actually, as water freezes it does contract but at about 4 degrees C it begins to expand. There are other strange things that occur at zero degrees as the following will show.

While Helena Blavatsky was shunned by some in the Theosophical Society, she had little study meetings in [/FONT][FONT=&quot]London[/FONT][FONT=&quot] with stalwart fans. These are published as Transactions of the Blavatsky Lodge. Here is an excerpt of relevance to our subject:
Q. When Tyndall* took a large block of ice and threw a powerful ray upon it and thence on to a screen, there were to be seen the forms of ferns and plants in it. What is the reason for this?
*(Professor John Tyndall b. 1820)
A. .......Occultism would explain it by saying either that the ray helped to show the astral shapes which were preparing to form future ferns and plants, or that the ice had preserved the reflection of actual ferns and plants that had been reflected in it. Ice is a great magician, whose occult properties are as little known as those of Ether. .....This is well known to the learned Yogis who dwell on the eternal ice of Bodrinath and the Himalayas.
At any rate, ice has certainly the property of retaining images of things impressed on its surface under certain conditions of light, images which it preserves until it is melted. .... in decomposing the ice with heat you deal with the forces and the that were impressed on it, then you find that it throws off these images and the forms appear. It is but one link leading to another link.

These things were also known by Anthroposophists:

"When Steiner noted that the icy crystals that form in winter on the panes of windows are different on a flower shop from those appearing on the windows of a butcher shop, he suggested to Pfeiffer and to another of his early followers, Lily Kolisko, that they experiment in the lab with the formation of crystals as a means of demonstrating what he called the "formative forces" in nature."

[FONT=&quot]Professor Tyndall was a very famous physicist and a friend of Michael Faraday.
There are a lot of webpages on his work.

I found the following interesting:
"Today, we know Tyndall for his work with heat, light, and sound. We forget his work on micro-organisms and airborne disease. Yet it stands right along with Pasteur's and Lister's.​

"He'd begun in the 1860s when he was studying light. He wanted to make air dust-free. So he created the Tyndall Box. He coated the walls inside a sealed box with glycerin.
"After 3 days, all the particulates in the air stuck to the walls and left the air in the box clean as a whistle. Tyndall had made the air optically pure. He showed that beams of light are invisible when they enter a window and pass through clean air.​

"By now doctors knew that dirt and dust caused disease. They also suspected that germs might be major agents of disease. Tyndall put those ideas together. He saw that by cleaning the air he'd removed the vehicle that carries micro-organisms.​

"To make his point, he exposed test tubes of urine to the clean air in a Tyndall box. Bacterial life grew in the test tubes under normal air. They stayed sterile in the box. So he repeated the experiment with meat, fish, and vegetables. Same story. None of them putrefied in clean air, either."
