Does Water Have Memory?

Short answer: YES!

We use water daily for various activities ranging from bathing to cooking. From a very young age, we know this liquid is the source of life on our planet because we, humans, are virtually entirely composed of it.

Of course, no one could have missed scientists’ statement that this common liquid had… a memory!

Is this true? Is there a memory in water? Can water remember things, and if so, how does it do so?

Let’s figure it out!

What is Water Memory?

Before we go any further, let’s establish what we’re talking about. What exactly is water memory? Water is thought to be capable of retaining some form of imprint or “memory” of chemicals exposed or dissolved in it. Some researchers believe this “memory” persists even after extreme dilution, to the point where no molecule remains in the water.

All of the water facts

So, how much do we know about this liquid?

Yes, water covers almost 70% of the Earth’s surface. And, sure, an adult human person is made up of it up to sixty percent of the time. But, for those who don’t know, our brain and heart are 70% water, our lungs are over 83 percent, and even our skin is nearly 64 percent water!

Because we are all made of water, we should learn more about this vital component.

  • H2O has remarkable qualities and may exist in three states: fluid, rigid, and gaseous (vapor).
  • There would be no life if this element did not exist, and we learned it thoroughly at school.
  • Only our planet possesses H2O in a liquid state; however, several other planets, such as Mars, have it in the form of hard ice.
  • H2O is the only substance that is yielding and capable of eroding hard rocks and changing landscapes as it flows!
  • 96.5 percent of this substance found on Earth is salt water from oceans and seas, which we cannot drink.

Over the last few decades, the scientific and public communities have become aware of the need for correct water usage to keep this substance available for human use, which is why developed countries are concerned about reasonable water consumption.

Water’s memory history

The concept of water memory dates back to 1988 when late Professor Jacques Benveniste published claims in the international scientific journal Nature that extremely high ‘ultramolecular’ dilutions of an antibody affected the human basophil degranulation test, a laboratory model of the immune response.

In other words, the water diluent’remembered’ the antibody long after it was no longer present. His discoveries were later labeled as ‘pseudoscience,’ yet the concept persisted despite its negative influence at the time.

Bernd Kröplin of the University of Stuttgart’s Institute for Static and Dynamics for Aerospace Constructions released his findings on the Water Memory study in his book “World in a Drop” in 2001.

The findings of Kröplin’s research using a darkfield microscope to see water drops are astounding.

“A scientific experiment was carried out whereby a group of students were all encouraged to obtain one drop of water from the same body of water, all at the same time. Through close examination of the individual droplets, it was seen that each produced different images.

Through this discovery which shows that water has a memory, according to scientists, a new perception of water can be formed. [Kroplin et al] believe that as water travels it picks up and stores information from all of the places that it has traveled through, which can thereby connect people to a lot of different places and sources of information when they drink this water, depending on the journey that it has been on.”

Nobel Prize Winner In 2009, Luc Montagnier, the virologist who led the team that identified the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), issued an article titled Aqueous nanostructures built from bacterial DNA sequences generate electromagnetic signals.

He claimed in this publication that he could detect radio waves emitted by pathogenic bacteria and viruses that had been enormously diluted in water. Jacques Benveniste invented the equipment that was used to detect these radio waves.

Is H2O Capable of Memorization?

So, let us state right away that “memory” in this context does not mean what we normally comprehend by this term.

Of course, if we present a text to the glass of water, it will not be able to read it back to us. However, during the research, it was discovered that this liquid has certain odd and mysterious properties.

  1. Water demonstrated the ability to retain the “memory” of the chemicals dissolved in it, even when the level of dilution was extremely high.
  2. Emoto Masaru, a Japanese novelist, demonstrated that this substance might respond to human consciousness. For example, when water “hears” positive phrases, nice music, or words of thanks attached to the tank with the liquid, it reacts positively and builds a rhythmic structure. Conversely, negative feelings, words, and sounds have the opposite effect.
  3. Bernd Kroplin, a German academic, discovered that water drops made by various people were distinct. In contrast, those made by the same person showed a similar appearance in a dried water drop. He also demonstrated that an image of a thing immersed in water remains in it after the thing is removed.

Even though these studies are frequently questioned by skeptics and even outlawed by the world’s scientific community as non-scientific inquiries, we believe that water holds certain enigmatic and undiscovered abilities yet to be revealed.


Is it possible for humans to transmit memories?

For the time being, it is merely a hypothetical procedure that could be realized in the future.

Is water capable of storing memories?

Water scientists say that the liquid may retain and convey information; nevertheless, such evidence is deemed unproven by the official scientific community.

Does water have feelings?

Water is essentially a chemical with no sensory apparatus. So there’s no doubt about it having feelings. However, many people mistakenly believe there is emotion in water, good and evil waters, and so on. These have no foundation.
