I noticed a couple recent threads on "seeding" other planets with Von Neumann machines. The original meaning of "broadcasting" meant to sow seeds by scattering them. A modern definition of broadcasting is the transmission of information by means of radiant energy.

Earlier this year, Gerald Pollack published a book titled THE FOURTH PHASE OF WATER: BEYOND SOLID, LIQUID AND VAPOR. Videos of Pollack introducing the basic concepts of his work can be found on YouTube and elsewhere on the Web.

The following is a sidebar from Pollack's book. (An "EZ" is an exclusion zone. Chapters just prior to this passage described how water can act like a battery and how such electrically structured water interacts with infrared light.)

Does Radiant Energy Carry Information?

Water emits radiant energy. Most of that energy comes from bulk water, but the EZ emits some energy as well. The wavelengths emitted from the EZ depend on its structure.

While the EZ structure has a generic aspect (Chapter 4), variants are anticipated. EZs build from surfaces with unique charge distributions. Those unique distributions will necessarily create variants of the generic EZ structure. Hence, the energy radiated from the EZ could contain surface-specific information.

If so, then EZ water may radiate information in the same way that TV station antennas radiate information. The radiated energy may be more than generic.

What happens when water absorbs the radiated energy? If the radiated energy contains information, then we might expect that information to become blurred or lost. However, if some of the energy's vibratory modes induced new EZ structural variants, then some information could be retained. Any such retention would amount to nothing less than electromagnetically communicated structural information — a kind of water-based email.

While any such communication might seem farfetched at best, stunning reports from Nobelist Luc Montagnier have lent credence to this kind of information transmission. Montagnier claims to have successfully transmitted DNA-structural signals to water. He first created an aqueous suspension of sample DNA. Then he placed the suspension in a sealed flask next to a second, similarly sealed flask of water. The flasks stood next to one another for an extended period, while he exposed both to a source of ordinary electromagnetic energy.

The newly "informed" water in the second flask was then combined with the raw materials required for DNA synthesis. This procedure created new DNA. The sequence of that DNA was not random: it was the same as the sample DNA in the first flask. Even though the two flasks had been well sealed and never came into physical contact, the information evidently passed from one flask to the other.

Initial responses to Montagnier's report have been skeptical. However, some scientists, persuaded by reports of electromagnetic transmission phenomena dating back to Gurwitsch almost a century ago and by the more recent work of Benveniste, are in hot pursuit. At this writing two labs claim that they could confirm Montagnier's finding. It will be interesting to see what develops from these studies.
