Anyone who has ever watched a school of fish in the ocean can understand what coherence is. Each fish is free to move independently, yet the group responds simultaneously—as a whole. It is as though the fish follow an unseen conductor, yet no conductor exists. In the world of physics, this kind of relationship is referred to as quantum coherence. At the smallest (quantum) level, there is unity and cooperation (coherence). This allows individual components to respond together as a larger unit.
As described in the book, Dancing with Water, there are many ways to induce water’s liquid crystalline structure. However, if the water lacks coherence, its structural organization can decay rapidly. In the human body (and within other living organisms) tiny electromagnetic fields help to keep water structured because the flow of energy through an organized matrix supports its organization. Other components within the human body (proteins, enzymes, DNA, cell membranes, ormus elements, etc. ) contribute to the maintenance of water’s structure simply because they are also often liquid crystals. They are a part of the larger liquid crystalline whole. Outside of living organisms, water’s structure is more difficult (but not impossible) to support.
Nature uses a combination of forces to establish and to sustain coherence. Cyclic or spiral movement is important. When water molecules cycle within natural electromagnetic fields, they are forced to align and re-align within the field. Each cycle refines the structure of the system. Eventually, water molecules “find their place” within a coherent domain and even though molecules exchange places, the system as a whole, is not disturbed – the same is true within a school of fish. Predators can temporarily disturb the organization. However, it does not take long before organization re-establishes itself. This is coherence. Water responds very similarly in its living state.
The book, Dancing with Water: The New Science of Water, (now in its second edition) identifies a multitude of ways that coherence may be established in water, thus creating water with exceptional hydrating qualities and water with a reputation for many other benefits.
