US academic Dr Gerald Pollack hosted a groundbreaking lecture for senior Abu Dhabi government leaders on Wednesday about the newly discovered properties of water.
Dr Pollack introduced the theory that water has a fourth phase beyond solid, liquid, and vapour. He dubbed this phase ‘living water’, according to Dubai state news agency Wam.
Living water is actually ‘H302’, not H20, according to the professor.
Speaking at the Majlis Mohamed bin Zayed, Dr Pollack identified H302 water as “exclusion zone" (EZ) water. He said it is more viscous, dense, and alkaline than regular water; has a negative charge, and can hold energy like a battery, and deliver energy too.
The key ingredient to create this highly structured water is electro-magnetic energy (light), either in the form of visible light, or infrared wavelengths.
As Dr Pollack explains in his 2013 book, the fourth phase occurs next to water-loving (hydrophilic) surfaces. EZ water can build on any hydrophilic surface when infrared energy is available. It builds by adding layer upon layer of EZ water, and can build millions of molecular layers; it exists almost everywhere throughout nature, including the human body.
The energy for building water structure comes from the sun. Radiant energy converts ordinary bulk water into ordered water, building this ordered zone. The professor has discovered that all wavelengths can build this ordered water.

Water absorbs infrared energy freely from the environment and uses it to convert bulk water into liquid crystalline water (fourth phase water). Of particular significance is the observation that this fourth phase is charged; and the water just beyond is oppositely charged, creating a battery that can produce electrical current and energy.
Since light charges this battery, the water can receive and process electromagnetic energy drawn from the environment in much the same way as plants. Absorbed electro-magnetic energy can then be put to use for electrical and mechanical work.
Dr Pollack said the discovery of the fourth phase has wide ranging practical applications.
“Among other things it helps us to get energy from water. The energy that we can get from water is literally free energy; we can take it from the environment and harvest it. Getting electricity out of water through the sun’s energy that comes in is another possibility. Harvesting electrical energy can be realised with proper electrodes,” Wam reported the professor as saying.
Dr Pollack, an international leader in water research, believes that understanding the fourth phase of water is the key to unlocking the door to the understanding of many phenomena.
Taking the fourth phase into account helps resolve many of water’s "anomalies". As a result water, which plays a central role in all features of life, becomes more understandable, and so do entities made up largely of water, such as oceans, clouds, and human beings.
