Masaru Emoto is a Japanese researcher who studies water and believes that its frozen crystal form shows its true nature.
He claims that water is deeply connected to our individual and collective consciousness. He has been visually documenting molecular changes in water by means of his photographic techniques.
Emoto freezes droplets of water and then examines them under a dark field microscope that has photographic capabilities.
Emoto was subjected to some criticism inside the scientific community for what is claimed as insufficient experimental controls and for not sharing enough details of his approach with the scientific community.
Some scientists believe his experiments fall short of proof because he doesn’t control other factors in the supercooling of water.
In addition, Emoto has been criticized for designing his experiments in ways that leave them prone to manipulation or human error influencing the findings.
