positive affirmations and rice experiment
Am I the last person to have viewed the many youtube videos featuring replications of the "rice experiment" featured in the short Masaru Emoto documentary Messages from Water? Just in case I'm not, this post contains a few links for the curious.
People are invited to put into two glass jars two scoops from the same batch of cooked rice. Over a period of 30 days, the experimenters speak kindly to one batch and speak harsh words to the other.
The original 38-minute documentary, Messages from Water, shows Emoto's experiments revealing that words that are spoken to water affect its crystalline structure when water is frozen. For the full documentary, here's a link to part 1 (with the other three parts very easy to access from the choices on the right side of the page).
