“Masaru Emoto was a Japanese author, researcher and entrepreneur, who claimed that human consciousness has an effect on the molecular structure of water.” – Wikipedia

From masaru-emoto.net:

It was 1994 when the idea to freeze water and observe it with microscope came upon me. With this method, I was convinced that I should be able to see something like snow crystals.

… from the water from rivers and lakes where water is kept pristine from development, we could observe beautiful crystals with each one having its own uniqueness.

The observation was done in various ways:

> Showing letters to water

> Showing pictures to water

> Playing music to water

> Praying to water

Here are some observations of frozen water after being exposed to different music genres:

Mozart - Symphony No. 40

While most music genres used in these experiments positively influence water and create such beautiful designs, Heavy Metal simply seems to put the water’s “inner energy” into a deep well of basically … shit. It is worthwhile noting that the “Showing letters to water” experiments had a similar destructive output when showing the words “Evil” to water:

If I would be showing these results to a fellow Metalhead, there’s a 90% chance that our first reaction would be in the form of James Hetfield’s Yeaaaaaaaa.
