West Marrin Ph. D is a scientist, educator, and founder of corporations and foundations focused on diverse water quality projects. He is the author of three books and journal articles that address a range of topics.
There are several seemingly important, yet undeniably puzzling, insights that ancient cultures left us regarding the physical substance of water. First, it is a sacred gift (usually bestowed by the “Creator” of our universe) that imparts life to the world and, in doing so, mediates an essential exchange of energy and information between the observable and unobservable worlds. It was often proclaimed that all worldly forms emerge from the primordial waters through the substance of water and eventually return to the primordial waters through the substance of water. Second, this life-imparting process is inherent in a type of water that was generally known as living water or the water of life, which was perceived to be distinct from the more plentiful ordinary water that is required to sustain life. The processes or energies responsible for the transition from ordinary to living water remain a mystery; however, most of the so-called holy water used for ceremonial purposes is merely a surrogate for this living water. Third, water was a substance of untold wisdom (often possessing the attributes of memory and discernment) that should be honored and respected for both its life-giving and life-taking attributes. Many cultures considered water to be a communicative entity, not unlike the myriad life forms that owed their very physical existence to it. Based on these ancient insights, it is not difficult to understand why water was almost universally considered to be sacred. See where our new science understanding is leading us back to ancients wisdom.
