Today the Austrian forester Viktor Schauberger is considered to be a pioneer of modern water research and the holistic observation of Nature. As early as the first half of the 20th century he gave urgent warnings of the consequences of uncontrolled exploitation of the environment. As a way out he proposed a radical rethink and the development of totally new concepts of energy production, in harmony with Nature. Schauberger formulated his “C & C principle”: first one has to comprehend Nature, and then one should copy it.
The applications of his ideas and his inventions include devices for refined drinking water, spiral pipes for carrying water with reduced friction, environmentally-friendly river regulation, as well as power generation from water and air using the principle of contraction and inward vortexing.

    50 years before they accepted the truth. What a joke. These people should be jailed.

    Man if only we could of brought Viktor Schauberger and Nikola Tesla together, I can’t even imagine what they would of created if they would of worked together. Something tells me they already knew of each other, I mean they are both from the same region of the planet, so it would be only "NATURAL" for them to have combined there work but never have. It’s crazy how 2 great minds can be from areas so close together and yet so far. I’d say there’s many patents thay can be created by utilizing both Shaubergers and Tesla’s creations to work together. As both men where so one with nature and understood and respected the forces of nature, it seems that it would be only natural to combine there work some how and i bet that it would just fit, it would easily work together naturally.

    knowledge of entropy
    comes with the inevitable advances in technology
    …. but for now
    matter of survival at civilization level
    intricate balance of energy
    the build moves around mitigating the receive and point threshold

  4. Cy berlabs on September 23, 2020 at 4:08 am

    I was truly amazed..understanding nature has always been the key to evolving technology without compromises..

  5. ThinkerTinker Tanker on September 23, 2020 at 4:11 am

    It is a sad injustice that this man isn’t as famous as Nicola Tesla.

  6. David Sarmas on September 23, 2020 at 4:12 am

    Victor was a really great man with a incredible mind!

  7. jagger12 on September 23, 2020 at 4:13 am

    Highly educational and practical..I would really like to see these things applied to the waterways that have been destroyed by fools who dam up rivers and kill them such as I have witnessed in New South Wales Australia around the Wilcannia areas and the destruction it has caused to the bushland and interference of rain.

  8. Kendall Kahl on September 23, 2020 at 4:14 am

    Anyone in to the steam punk scene should watch this. We need to have a rebirth of water power and the steam punk movement with its rebellion against the tyranny of fossil fuels would love this.

  9. Engelhafen on September 23, 2020 at 4:15 am

    We are a product of nature and all its laws so no surprise

    Some people are just completely in a league of their own.

  12. Christine Still on September 23, 2020 at 4:18 am

    This is amazing and SO logical. Our best "water experts" have not figured this out? The late Comedian George Carlin used to say (paraphrase) ‘Mother Nature will be just fine. We will damage the earth so much, she will shake humans off like a bunch of ants and Mother Earth will survive nicely".

    Hi, I am hoping that you are going forward with reviewing Croatian subtitles

  15. Tim Christensen on September 23, 2020 at 4:23 am

    Fascinating! It goes to show how little we know, collectively as a species. It also makes me wonder how we could have evolved so much healthier if not driven by the principles of capitalism, power, and greed. Instead, we get Climate Change, choking pollution, environmental annihilation, and the end of countless species including the one we love the most. Clearly, it didn’t have to be this way. Thank you for this documentary on the life and work of this very intriguing man.

    An interesting experiment was done in Yellowstone National park (USA). When wolves were introduced it was noticed that the deer ate less of the young aspen trees at the river’s edge. This resulted in more meandering if the river and more silt deposition on the outer banks of the curves. This more trees and other plants could grow which benefited more wildlife and prevented erosion. What other nature secrets are waiting to be discovered. Please encourage science in all curricula.

  17. OYA1100 on September 23, 2020 at 4:23 am

    This is a really worthwhile and extremely interesting video. Viktor Schauberger was a scientist I liken to Tesla. They both created by observing and then copying Nature.

    This is one of the best documentaries I have seen in some time. What an insightful man, ahead of his time.

    Arthur Rostron was captain of the _Carpathia_ when it collected the _Titanic_ passengers,
    from his autobiography _Home from the Sea_ (1931) he described his observation of a vortex in nature

    ‘ Another interesting thing I witnessed as a boy was the formation of
    a waterspout and its dissolution, The lower part of a black (nimbus)
    rain-cloud began to form in the shape of an elephant’s trunk. Slowly it
    commenced to swing backwards and forwards. As it did so I noticed the
    sea immediately under this trunk show signs of disturbance. This increased
    while that trunk end for all the world, seemed to reach downwards – seekingly.
    Suddenly there came a rush upwards of the water, and the cloud trunk darted
    to meet it as though it were a long-lost friend.
    There they were – cloud and water, locked in an embrace, and in that position
    the whole column travelled across the face of the deep, until at length it
    broke, the upper part receding into the clouds, the lower simply flopping
    back into the ocean. ‘

    You should never copy, even nature makes mistakes, innovation is a better way to process information into a workable model that has all the positive aspects but none of the detrimental negative one’s.

  22. Benjamin Falzon on September 23, 2020 at 4:27 am

    So many engineering projects including aviation designs have been copied from nature. If it wasn’t for the genius of nature, we’ll still be hunters and gathertres wearing just fig leaves.

  23. troy tucker on September 23, 2020 at 4:28 am

    victor has great ideas.. sounds like the german man at the end tryed to ruin the project..cia… then bought his life patients? then he died 5 days later… hmm sounds suspicious. we know after the war the new formed cia was bastards.. still are.. and this is around time tesla wanted free energy.. hmmm … westinghouse and edison didnt want this… cant meter free energy. today its the same.. im possative they have ideas.. but cant meter it.

  24. Joanne Kucks on September 23, 2020 at 4:30 am

    Would continuing this research help to stop tornadoes or toxic algae blooms or to desalinate water around the world?

  25. Jesus Torres on September 23, 2020 at 4:32 am

    Nice going guys, that is extraction ordinary, that approach deseve a lot of credit and to all of those that one way or another collaborate organizing and all that project and put it together and brought it to us, most kind of you guys, please keep up the good work.

    What a genius and great man,thank goodness for these recordings. Zero point energy do No Harm to Nature.

    It intrigues me how people who are unable or unwilling to learn "conventional" (i.e. tested) science are attracted to mavericks. The idea seems to be that only those who are outside science are the true visionaries. All those scientists and engineers who have spent years, decades even, experimenting and learning how nature works, are misguided, apparently.

  33. Blink twice on September 23, 2020 at 4:39 am

    Viktor Schauberger and Nikola Tesla made their life’s biggest mistakes when they went to America, should’ve stay and continue with their work in Europe…we can’t blame them, they didn’t know what we know today

  34. Frombeyond on September 23, 2020 at 4:41 am

    Copy god never copy nature

  35. Ian on September 23, 2020 at 4:41 am

    Once you understand how nature functions, nothing is impossible.

    September 21, 2020 Ideally, every child, teenager (current home schooling because of the COVID19 Pandemic) and adult should watch this ‘Victor Schauberger – ‘Comprehend and Copy Naure’ (Documentary of 2008). This might help make math and science courses less boring for those students who would rather be in an art class or outside looking at nature. This Schauberger documentary might be popular with parents who have visited Duvenek Ranch ‘Hidden Villa’ in Los Altos Hills, near Stanford University and Foothill Community College on El Monte Road (the hiking goes towards Santa Cruz). Science teachers who enjoy this documentary would probably enjoy working at Foothill Community College because of its location near nature and its Horticulture program. There probably is an adult Hostel at Hidden Villa. There is a very interesting autobiography by Josephine Duvuneck about the history of this area (she traveled by horse and buggy to San Francisco). Some of her family or friends may have met Viktor Schauberger out of their respect for nature. The Quaker Church influenced her thinking about nature. G’Day

  37. edward thor on September 23, 2020 at 4:46 am

    Schauberger was not the first to speak against roman destruction regarding woods!

    Isn’t it interesting that all our technology is based on exploration and intrusion, the destructive side of natural forces?
    Imagine we would explore the other side, like Meyer, the engines of virmanas, impellers, zero point energy, cold fusion, thorium reactors or even the technology of German „Glocke“ or their saucers, Tesla, Wilhelm Reich and much more

  40. Deborah Duthie on September 23, 2020 at 4:48 am

    Excellent concepts that have been proven by Historical Cultures. Incas’ placed small stones of the channels, to slow and keep water sweet. I love these programs. Thank-you.

  41. Tech Trek Trick on September 23, 2020 at 4:50 am

    I think Schauberger and Tesla would have gotten along quite well. Both fascinating individuals who had a passion for learning and neither one was compromised by money. Stumbled on this video by accident and I’m grateful for it

  42. Deborah Duthie on September 23, 2020 at 4:50 am

    Fantastic information. If the machine uses a Horos effect with the air generation, an anti gravitation effect might be produced at over 1000rpm. The effect of the Horos extends further than the boundaries of the machine. If the mathematics becomes plus or minus;
    as in e=+ or – mc squared. In old interviews, the small plane sized craft, could have used a Horos to lift, or so I gathered, from my research.

  43. mary harrer on September 23, 2020 at 4:51 am

    So inspirational….I wish I could get a grant so that I could go back to school to work on projects like this.

  44. Craig Westbrook on September 23, 2020 at 4:53 am

    The force of magnetic fields and non ferrous alloys combine to seperate water into gas ~ elemental nuclear bonds ~ are ? Magnetic ~ Craig Westbrook

  45. Domingo De Anda on September 23, 2020 at 4:55 am

    Wow, that was pretty damn good.

  46. Frank Barone on September 23, 2020 at 4:57 am

    Think of how much better the log ride at Disneyland would’ve been if Viktor had designed it.

  47. Joanne Kucks on September 23, 2020 at 4:57 am

    Did anyone notice that the diagram at 20:18 to show the water cycle looked a fish? The Gods are revealing a secret to us about nature. Very interesting video. We must merge art, science and nature!

  48. Deborah Duthie on September 23, 2020 at 4:59 am

    Stop using straight lines when engineering your plans for power extraction and restoration. This will give Nature her place in your plans. Maximised, will achieve optimum cyclic deep penetration of the ground. A healthier Earth.
