The Institute of Ecological Technology is a distributed self-organizing research institute, with a focus on non-conventional ideas and solutions within ecological technology. Our focus is on practical applications and on becoming aware of our interconnectedness with nature. It was formed in the late 70s, inspired a lot by some ideas by the Austrian Viktor Schauberger and has undergone a series of metamorphoses, but can be seen as a focus point for groups interested in non-conventional ecological ideas and solutions.

There has been a need expressed by our readers to distinguish the difference between implosive and explosive energy.
What is implosive energy?
What is explosive energy?
Viktor Schauberger (30th June 1885 - 25th September 1958) was an Austrian forester, inventor, engineer, philosopher, writer and artist.
Rouva Schauberger on Walterin, Viktor Schaubergerin pojan, leski. Hän asuu yhä perheen kodissa Bad Ischlissä, pohjoisessa Itävallassa. Jokaisella tapaamiskerrallamme hänellä oli päällään perinteiset itävaltalaiset vaatteet, hyvin istuva räätälöity jakku ja dirndl-hame. Vaikka hän on alle 150 senttiä pitkä, hänellä on vaikuttava ilmestys ja hän on hyvin älykäs. Hän puhuu jonkin verran englantia, paremmin kuin minä saksaa, joten keskustelumme käytiin enimmäkseen englanniksi. Hänellä oli kuitenkin huolenaiheenaan se, ettei hän osaisi ilmaista itseään hyvin käyttämällä englantia, joten seurassamme oli tapaamisillamme myös tulkki. Keskustelumme aikaan hän oli 89-vuotias.
Kiitos että suostuit puhumaan minulle muistikuvistasi Viktor Schaubergeristä.
- Goethe puhui todellisuuden ja runouden erosta. Suuri runo voi kummuta todellisuuden pienestä siemenkodasta, ytimestä. Haluan kertoa todellisesta Viktor Schaubergeristä sellaisena kuin minä hänet tunsin. Nykyään ei ole enää monta ihmistä elossa jotka tunsivat oikean Viktor Schaubergerin.
- Tunsin Viktorin vain lyhyen ajan, vuodesta 1952 siihen saakka kunnes hän kuoli vuonna 1958. En viettänyt paljoakaan aikaa Viktorin kanssa. Walter ja minä asuimme Bad Ischlissa, hän asui Linzissä.
- Hän oli yksi merkittävimpiä 1900-luvulla eläneitä ihmisiä. Mutta siihen aikaan kun opin tuntemaan hänet, hän oli hyvin pettynyt moniin asioihin. Mikään ei muuttunut hänen elämänsä aikana;. hänen ideansa kiehtoivat monia, mutta harvat ihmiset pystyivät toteuttamaan ne käytännössä.
Schauberger-perheellä on pitkä traditio työskentelystä metsissä. Tekeekö kukaan perheen jäsenistä enää työtä metsien parissa?
- Viktor oli viimeinen. Hän oli varttunut Linzin pohjoisosassa, alueella joka on alkuperäistä metsää vielä nytkin. Tämä on harvinaista Itävallassa näinä päivinä. Hän oli sotilaana neljä vuotta ensimmäisessä maailmansodassa. Hän taisteli Venäjällä, Italiassa, Serbiassa ja Ranskassa, ja haavoittui. Sodan jälkeen hän työskenteli luonnonvaraisissa metsissä vuoteen 1924, sen jälkeen hänen uransa metsänhoitajana päättyi. Tämän jälkeen hän rakensi tukki-kouruja (log-flume) (hänen ensimmäinen keksintönsä, joka toi hänet laajemman yleisön tietoisuuteen), hänet kutsuttiin työskentelemään Wieniin. Hän oli viimeinen perheestään joka työskenteli metsissä. Nykyään kukaan ei tee sellaista työtä. Enää ei metsästetä ja kukaan ei myöskään työskentele enää luonnonvaraisissa metsissä.
Mistä Walter ja Viktor puhuivat?
Walter sanoi "Auta luontoa, auta puita. Meillä on pakko olla paljon enemmän puita, enemmän metsiä. Metsien ensimmäisenä tehtävänä on tuottaa vettä. Mitä me voimme tehdä luonnon hyväksi, mitä me voimme tehdä puiden hyväksi, ja mitä voimme tehdä puustolle ja vedelle kokonaisuutena?" Tästä hän aina puhui.
Tämä oli merkittävän teollisuuskasvunaikaa, niin kutsuttua saksalaisen sodanjälkeisen talousihmeen aikaa. Kaiken piti olla suurempaa ja parempaa. Viktor ja Walter olivat sitä mieltä, ettei suurempi ja parempi ole aina hyvästä. He sanoivat, että meidän pitää katsoa sinne, mihin asiat keskittyvät, mikä on olennaisinta, mikä on tärkeintä kaikelle elämälle. Viktorille ja Walterille tämä oli tärkein asia. Kuinka he pystyisivät saamaan tämän idean viestitettyä niin, että ihmiset pystyisivät ymmärtämään sen.

Callum Coats - The Life & Work of Viktor Schauberger (CFE - December 2, 1995).asf
And hello there, I'm Laura Lee, and thanks for tuning in for Conversation for Exploration.
You know, last week we were talking about Viktor Schauberger, we had a couple of guests, one that talked about the energy aspects of Schauberger's work, one that talked about the environmental and forestry aspects of Schauberger's work in water,
was apparently used by the nazis, to try and build the flying saucers, ahm, looked at water and saw a wonderful mystical substance that was living and alive, ahm, then, Callum Coats called in towards the end of the interview, and says "Oh, I'm
I just happened to be in town,Â "by the way, there's a lot of stuff about Schauberger you haven't mentioned yet"
I'm going, "Oh, well, come join us, come tell us" , and he is here, right before his trip to London, to finalize his newest book on Schauberger, two books, Callum joins us in studio.
LL: Pleasure, the things you have to go through to go and meet, the researchers here, I'm glad you found me
LL: Welcome Callum.
CC: Nice to be here this evening.
THE LIFE AND WORKS OF VIKTOR SCHAUBERGER
Date: 08-09 June 2002
Location: PKS Villa, Bad Ischl, Austria
Speakers: Callum Coats (main speaker)
– Various topics on the works of Viktor Schauberger (VS)
- Research into German flying saucer project.
- How he obtained documents and prototypes from Karl Gerchsheimer.
(this seems to be a "lost" website)
Viktor Schauberger -
possibly the most forward-thinking scientist
of this century?
Viktor Schauberger was the inventor of the first
man-made vortex powered "flying saucer"!
He also realised by observation what Cartesian Reductionist
deduction couldn't... that moving fluids can generate energy
by reducing entropy.
His motto was "understand nature, and then copy nature" He was known as the 'Water Wizard'.
Alongside Nicola Tesla and Wilhelm Reich,
Schauberger is one of that distingushed company of pioneers whose
work is so unprofitable, so contrary to the perceived norm of
'profit at any cost', that their major works are bought up
and shelved indefinately.
Here is his story...
Born towards the end of the nineteenth century in Austria, Schauberger's
teacher was the natural world itself. In forests, alongside rivers, he studied
the life-enhancing energy, which manifests in water or air as vortices.
"Prevailing technology uses the wrong forms of motion. It is based on
entropy - on motions which nature uses to break down and scatter
materials. However, Nature uses a different type of motion for creating
order and new growth. The prevailing explosion-based technology -
fuel burning and atom splitting - fills the world with expanding,
heat-generating centrifugal motion," he warned.
Energy production, he believed, could instead use inward-moving,
cold-generating centripetal motion, the same that nature employs to build
and enliven substances. Even hydro-electric power plants, Schauberger
said, use a destructive motion - they pressure water and chop it through
turbines. The result is 'dead water'. He built suction turbines which
enliven and invigorate, resulting in clean, life-giving water downstream.
Schauberger produced electrical power from a unique suction turbine by
implosion principles, and later was pressured into developing a
propulsion system using the same principles applied to air.
of flying saucers and nazi imprisonment...
Hitler came to power and Schauberger's experiments had
started to attract attention. After hearing about Schauberger's
discoveries, Hitler threatened to hang Schauberger and
his entire family if he did not co-operate with Nazi plans.
Hitler wanted Schauberger to supervise the building of a
new flying craft which levitated without burning any fuel.
Because of the war, the Third Reich was desperate for
new technological aid, but Schauberger did not want to give
the Third Reich any technological advantages!
He went to work as ordered, but deliberately took a great
deal of time over everything, hoping to foil Hitler that way...
The idea of a new type of flying craft was based on Schauberger's
discovery, made a few years earlier, of how to develop a low-pressure
zone at the atomic level. He had actually achieved this in a laboratory,
when his prototype whirled air or water 'radically and axially' at a falling
temperature. Schauberger referred to the resulting force as 'diamagnetic
levitation power'. He emphasised that nature already successfully used
this direct, or 'reactionary', suction force, within weather
generation, solar fusion stability etc.
Schauberger was given a team of scientists to help him with his work, and
he insisted that these be treated not as prisoners but as free men - even
though they were all technically prisoners of the Nazis. After their research
headquarters were bombed, they were all transferred to Leonstein and
there they perfected the "flying disc", powered by Schauberger's turbine
which rotated air into a twisting type of oscillation resulting in a build-up of
immense power causing levitation! Schauberger's prototype was
developed into a vehicle that could speed 15000m in 3 minutes and
fly in any direction at mach 3!
In what is now eerily reminiscent of current reportage of alien
spacecraft, the flying disc prototype, which rose and crashed
against the laboratory ceiling, glowed blue-green as it rose,
and left a silvery glow! (was this possibly ionised water vapour?)
At the end of the war, American military officers seized
everything in the laboratory and, seeing Schauberger as
a Nazi collaborator, put him into 'protective custody' for
The Munich publication, Da Neue Zeitalter, wrote in 1956 that "Viktor
Schauberger was the inventor and discoverer of the new motive
power, implosion, which, with the use of only air and water, generated light,
heat and motion". The publication noted that the first unmanned flying disc
was tested in 1945 near Prague, that it could hover motionless in the air
and could fly as fast backwards as forwards. This flying disc was reported
to have a diameter of 50 metres.
There is no doubt that Viktor Schauberger knew how to build a disc that
levitated. However, he had not, at the time of his imprisonment,
worked out how to 'apply the brakes', as all his test flying discs
on environmental concerns and selling one's soul...
After his imprisonment, Schauberger took up his research again. He had
lost his financial assets but he still thought he could help the world by turning
his inventive genius and insights to good use.
He felt bitter about the effects of chemicals and deforestation upon
agriculture. He noted that "the farmers work hand-in-hand with our
foresters. The blood of the earth constantly weakens and the productivity
of the soil decreases". When forests can no longer nurture water sources
which supply vitality, farmlands downstream cannot build up voltage
in the ground for keeping parasitic bacteria in balance, he observed.
Noticing that the soil dried out after being ploughed with iron ploughs,
he built copper plated ploughs. He continued to work on his agricultural
ideas for some time.
Then Schauberger was called to America, where, still thinking he could
do some good for the world, he was persuaded to provide a
team of scientists, military and government officials with
a record of everything he knew and to sign some contracts.
But eventually he became worried that his projects seemed
to have been left sitting on the shelf, and that no further
research was being done. He then discovered that in actual
fact he had signed the rights to his work away to an
industrial concern, and that this concern now retained power
over the use and development of his work. And clearly their
position was to do nothing to further Schauberger's research.
(One wonders if they are perhaps now working on some of
the ideas, particularly the levitating disc, in secret...)
By this stage, Viktor Schauberger was an old man, and
he died a despairing death, reportedly crying in the last
days of his life that he had lost everything and that he no
longer even owned himself.
Schauberger's legacy...our view
Now, 38 years after Schauberger's death, our planet is still in crisis.
Will humanity turn, as it no doubt should, to Viktor Schauberger's insights?
There are several aspects of Schauberger's work which encourage further
thought. Spinning objects, such as Tops, exhibit well known tendencies to
resist axial rotation, but neverthless, as energy is lost from the system,
chaotic impulses lead to precession, which occurs in a way reminiscent of
the decay of a musical note in a stretched string. From the Top's point of
view, its axis is unique and fixed - it is the universe that wobbles!
What happens if you entrain particles at near light speed in a closed loop,
and then rotate the whole structure? What happens if you then rotate that
system? and so on.
This problem has baffled me for ages, but by contemplating
Schauberger's insights (if I may call them that) I have realised the obvious,
that a vortex is a type of fluid gyroscope, and that a collapsing vortex's
axis does oscillate with increasing frequency until the liquid reverts to a
turbulent state, thereby losing as much energy as possible as fast as it
can. Coincidentally, chaos theory got a good break by considering
the stages of transition from laminar, ordered flow, to turbulence, in
liquids. Water is at maximum density at 4 degrees celcius, and
Schauberger's research indicates that at this same temperature
water has its best 'carrying, life giving' properties. At maximum
density, water obviously can carry the most, but what of the life
force? Since water should be a gas at room temperature (20 degrees
celcius) according to its molecular weight, it has long been
assumed that water 'polymerises', which assumption, unverifiable as
yet by direct obsevation, may account for many of its peculiar properties.
At 4 degrees, water is in its longest chain state, and thus ionic charges
have a chance to build up macroscopically as the long molecles entrain,
if the flow remains ordered or 'laminar'. On a sub-atomic level, this same
spin may have entrainment effects. What if the whole system became
aligned? Is it possible that all the kinetic energy present in a fluid might
be released as motion in a region? This might be analogous to the way light
behaves in a laser, but in this case the output would be thrust and suction at
opposite ends of the vortex.
I mentioned W Reich earlier, as his forbidden experiments into nuclear
radiation and life energy (for which he was indirectly gaoled) seem to point
to the startling conclusion that entopic energy in the cosmos is balanced
by an absorbing, patternmaking force, which can been seen as
information, or as life in the most general sense. If this were
to be so (and the idea is appearing more and more frequently
in current scientific literature), then not only would life be
inevitable throughout the universe, but our short term and
disastrous manipulation of the atom might find a long term solution
in the creation of 'nuclear neutralisation plants', which
would increase growth rates, precipitation and flowering around them.
A utopian fantasy? Perhaps... we will have to see.

Walter said help "Nature, help the trees. We have to have many more trees, more woodland. The first task for the woodland is to bring the water into existence."
Frau Schauberger is the widow of Walter, Viktor Schauberger’s son. She still lives in the family home in Bad Ischl, upper Austria. Each time I saw her she was wearing the traditional Austrian clothes, the close fitting tailored jacket and a dirndl skirt. Although she is less than five feet tall, she has a powerful presence and shows a sharp intelligence. She speaks some English, more than my German, so our conversation was mainly in English. She was concerned that she would not be able to express herself well in English, so at each meeting we had an interpreter sitting with us. At the time of our conversation, she was 89 years old.
http://groups.yahoo.com/group/viktorschaubergergroup/message/1443 There are some attempts to build replicas! First there is Mr. Klaus Rauber and the group around him. Klaus Rauber is giving out the paper Implosion (in German) and also have some Implo-meetings. As far as I know they have not been very succesfull as the copper plates seems to bend in speeds around 8000 rpm. Then one person in Norway (Mr. Olav Uleberg) have built a replica. The exact outcome from these replicas is still unknown. Then of course there is the real thing: The original Repulsin that Richard Feierabend found in Texas. It is still in US. Regarding information on this machine I strongly recomend "The Living Water" by Mr. Olof Alexandersson where the German version is the best. Then Callum Coats books in general but especially "Energy Evolution". Reda these books before you got to the net as there is a lot of miss understanding and erratic information. Regards, //Curt
The Cycloid-Space-Curve-Motion Cycle of Atomic Transitions - as discovered by the Austrian Physicist Viktor SchaubergerSubmitted by cybe on November 28, 2005 - 18:23
by Paul E Potter
Very briefly, Schauberger engineered several types of machines that would create an up-current of axially-spinning air so powerful that the up-current's drag force would speed the whole machine higher and higher into the air. Of the many different types of air turbines he made several of them boasted a thrust force of nearly 10,000 bhp - simply by moving air. Some designers have utilised Schauberger's special turbines for flight and new research suggests that there indeed is a strong case for the continuation and re-establishment of Schauberger's research into these hugely beneficial technologies.
Central to any understanding of Schauberger's levitating force is his use of the cycloid-space-curve, which initially he used to generate a dual flow of fluid through a pipe (see note 1) - of an inner axial flow which moved faster through the pipe than did its peripheral flow which was especially directed into a cycloid path next to the pipe wall (see Schauberger's patent 134543).
Review by Jeane Manning
A review of the agriculture section of the book Living Energies: Viktor Schauberger's Brilliant Work With Natural Energy Explained, by Callum Coats.
Life & Work of Viktor Schauberger
Callum spent 30 years studying Schauberger's work with the natural energy flow of water and how unrecognized principles of Nature can be utilized for life enhancement. His video on the subject is a popular detailed overview.
page 303 of Living Energies by Coats and Schauberger
Triboluminescence: An internal glow or luminescence produced when two or more crystalline rocks of similar composition are rubbed hard together or struck against one another and is attributed to the energy given off by the electrons contained the rocks as they return from a pressure-induced, excited state to their rest orbits. As a phenomenon it can occur both in air and under water.
The Viktor Schauberger Models
taken from the book "Stevens - Hitler's Flying Saucer - A Guide to German Flying Discs of the Second World War (2003), page 121-, available on Amazon, here
An Austrian, Viktor Schauberger was first and foremost a naturalist. His primary focus was water as found in naturally occurring streams, rivers and lakes. In observing the movement of water he formulated his own ideas about its movement and energetic properties. They are applicable in air also. His ideas are guite contrary to accepted ideas, both then and now and are even now imperfectly understood and debated. These ideas involved the vortex which was the way Schauberger believed that water naturally flowed both in the earth and in streams. Schauberger believed that energy naturally flowed in a vortex but that this movement was only visible through another medium such as water or air. This discussion will first focus on theories of why and how the Schauberger saucer model flew and then recount the sequence of events in Schauberger's involvement with flying discs.
Callum Coats: Eco-Technology vol.1: The Water Wizard - The Extraordinary Properties of Natural Water
It was a Swedish engineer and anthroposophist, Olof Alexandersson, who wrote the first popular introduction to the radical ideas of Viktor Schauberger. I came across this attractive little book in 1979 and had it translated into English. Living Water is now in its eighth printing and has inspired many to go on to Callum Coats' in-depth study of Schauberger's ideas, Living Energies, which was published in 1996. My friendship with Callum goes back to 1981 when he confided in me his wish to write a definitive work on Viktor Schauberger. Callum had met Viktor's son, Walter Schauberger, in 1977 and was to spend three years studying with Walter at his Pythogoras-Keppler System Institute in Lauffen, in the Saltzkammergut near Salzburg. During that time, Callum was given access to all Viktor's writings.
Viktor Schauberger did not start seriously to write about his ideas and his discoveries until the age of 44, when he acquired a distinguished sponsor in Professor Philipp Forchheimer. As Callum describes later in this volume, Forchheimer, a world famous hydrologist, had been asked by the Austrian Government to report on Schauberger's controversial log flumes, which transported large amounts of timber from inaccessible locations without damage. He was so impressed with Schauberger's discovereies that he asked him to write a paper which was published in 1930 in Die Wasserwirtschaft , the Austrian Journal of Hydrology. This paper attracted the attention of the President of the Austrian Academy of Science, Professor Wilhelm Exner, and resulted in a commission to write a more detailed study of his theories for that same magazine under the title Temperature and the Movement of Water.
Schauberger's ideas completely flew in the face of conventional ideas of hydrology and water management and, as a result, gained him many enemies in scientific circles. The reason Viktor developed the strong feelings about orthodox scientific research that you will read in this and subsequent volumes was partly to defend himself from their attacks, and partly out of his despair at witnessing the ongoing destruction of the natural environment by their blind and uncaring technologies. It was this despair that motivated him to write his only book, Our Senseless Toil - the Cause of the World Crisis . It was published at a time of severe depression ,when many were worried about the future.
After Forchheimer died, Schauberger found another ally in Professor Werner Zimmermann who encouraged Viktor in 1935-1936 to write about the damage being wrought to the great rivers, the Rhine and the Danube, in a small 'new thought' magazine Tau . After Schauberger's death, two magazines published further collections of Schauberger's writings: Implosion was started by a student and collaborator of Viktor's, and published a number of his articles in the 1960s. Mensch und Technik in the 1970s published articles by and about Viktor Schauberger for the more free-thinking scientiific community.
Callum Coats has skilfully woven together these articles, together with correspondence with othere scientists, friends and officials of one kind or another, into a fascinating tapestry which gives a true and very readable account of Schauberger's impassioned campaign to alert the world to the dangers of the prevailing scientific dogma. Unfortunately, not much has changed, and Schauberger's vision of how humanity could work cooperatively with Nature is perhaps more relevant than ever.
Callum arranged this massive amount of material into a large volume, Eco-Technology. In considering this for publication, we realised that it would be much more accessible in several volumes, arranged by theme. This first one, The Water Wizard, is devoted to Schauberger's ideas about water and rivers. The second, Nature as Teacher, concerns the wider implications of his ideas on water and energy. The third, The Fertile Earth, describes the way trees transform energy, and processes of fertilisation of the soil . The final volume, The Energy Revolution , gathers together the discussion and description of Schauberger's appliances for purifying and energising water and for producing vast amounts of virtually free energy. Together with Living Energies, the Eco-technology series give a complete account of the vision and genius of one of the founders of the present ecological movement, and are an inspiration for all those who wish to see our precious Earth saved from extinction by short-sightedness and greed, and the emergence of a new partnership with bountiful Nature.

This report is an attempt to understand and learn from the ideas and inventions of the Austrian forester Viktor Schauberger. Viktor Schauberger already in the 1920s warned about environmental crisis, at a time at which it was not, as today, something recognized. During his lifetime, he encountered resistance and ridicule, and his perspective may still today be labelled as unconventional and unorthodox, although much of what he wrote about our handling of waters and forests today is more relevant than ever. As he wasn't an academic, but was more of a natural philosopher, he had trouble to communicate his ideas with contemporary scientists. In this report, we'll try to show how modern research in chaos and self-organizing systems give us a possibility to shed some new light on Vikor Schauberger, and perhaps establish a deeper understanding of the phenomena he described.
This final volume in the "Eco-technology" series deals with the generation of energy using nature's enormous potential. It describes different kinds of energy machines that depend on the principle of implosion
Other books in the 'Eco-technology' series are: The Water Wizard, The Fertile Earth and Nature as a Teacher.
Nature produces energy by slow, cool, implosive means - by a centripetal inward motion, while our present culture uses explosive centrifugal (outwards) movement, which is wasteful and many times less powerful and effective. It also uses up the Earth's resources and pollutes her ecosystems.

Implementing Schauberger's Vision
A listing of groups and individuals working on reseach
and development inspired by Schauberger's work.
Callum Coats worked with Viktor's son Walter for several years, and translated all of the Schauberger archive. This book, now regarded as the most authoritative work on Eco-Technology, took 15 years to write. For the connoisseur, and very informative of every area of Viktor's ideas and research, though sometimes quite challenging.
