Water Dowsing – An Explanation

Talk about coincidences but my AIG member email interlocutor just emailed me asking how I located the water at Yeelirrie and what ‘instrumentation” did I use.

I used a metal coat-hanger wire shaped in an ‘L’ and held one length in my right hand grasp so the other part of the ‘L’ it could move freely around horizontally from right to left and vice versa.

If we imagine a subsurface electric current as a directional flow, then like an electric current flowing inside an metal wire, a magnetic field will be generated around the water current. It only needs to percolate horizontally as millimetres per hour to produce a magnetic field.

The very act of walking with a freely moveable metal conductor is tantamount to moving an electric conductor through a magnetic field, and that motion will induce an electric current in the wire, which will then react by the Lorentz force and move. Standing still over an electric current does not induce a current in the dowsing tool, but walking with it does.

All very simple when you actually start to think about it. It’s why water dowsers always use freshly broken branches or saplings, since they need the electrical conductivity of the living tree for the dowsing mechanism to work.

I bet the Russians have already published this explanation, so I won’t claim precedence but would appreciate it if a reader locates a Russian scientific publication describing it.

Of course if you don’t believe in dowsing, then you would not be interested to think about it in the first place, would you. Amazing how narrow minded and petty the scientesists are, no?
