Perfect water

The perfect water has about 50 parts-per-million, is free of toxins and is properly structured.

I've been distilling water for about 15 years. I avoid tap water ["toilet paper water"] if at all possible; hell, i'd prefer not even to bathe in it, for how do i know what my skin might absorb?

There are many opinions on how to 'create' good drinking water but after listening to heath gurus and the like for years, here's my 2 cents worth:
- there is nothing like distillation for water
- however, modern chemicals often have similar evaporation points as water, making distillation in regard to these chemicals useless; therefore it is best to apply a reverse osmosis filter to your distilled water.
- structuring such 'dead' water can be done in many ways; the most simple: add some seasalt and shake to oxiginate.

Health guru Gabriel Cousens suggests water left to stand in MOONlight is better. I have personally placed my distilled water in sunlight in clear glass containers and can attest that it tastes much better afterwards; however, i've never tried 'moonlighting'.

Many people vortex their water, with or without strong magnets to restructure them.
Pyramids, praying/meditation, it could all be worthwhile, but let's get back to 'survival water' for a minute.


MMS is sodium chlorite that's been activated by an acid. One can either throw MMS in water or one can leave sodium chlorite to stand in water for a day. Either way i believe it's always good to have MMS on hand.

Chlorine may be poisonous but it will also evaporate out of water left in an open container. The great thing about chlorine is that it is cheap and easy to come by. It may destroy much of the environment today but in your future it could be a life saver. Just give it time to evaporate out of whatever water you wish to drink.

Before you start treating the water you wish/need to drink, perhaps you'll be wanting to make an 'Egyptian well'; you dig a hole next to a river or pond and collect what water seeps into it.
THEN, after you have yourself some gross water  ??? ya might wanna filter it through some basic filtering device.
You still might wanna treat it or boil it (but if you're digging an Egyptian well to begin with, chances are you're short on such 'luxuries'...).

The best place to save water is... in your body.
In the book Born To Run there are 2 interesting things on ultra marathon runners going to extremes to get liquids into their systems; in one account a runner drinks his own urine even though it is brownish... [where's a vomit icon when you need one...?]
In another, 2 runners lose their way and come across a pond covered with algae and dirt; they collect some water from below the surface to drink; amazingly, they don't get sick from it.

One guy crossed an ocean in a raft to prove one can live off of seawater; after weeks at sea he actually made it. He says the trick is to take small sips at a time.
There's another account of a family at ses on a raft and 2 small boys are too sick to drink; their parents put seawater from behind as an enema, based on the idea that the last part of the intestines is naturally able to extract water from what's in there. It saves the boys' lives.

Great info.

Yes, we all do need to rethink our "water", as so much comes from taps, and who knows what all is in it.  Yikes.
