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

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. – masaru-emoto.net

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.
