Viktor Schauberger (30 June 1885 - 25 Sept 1958): Austrian forester, naturalist and inventor.
Viktor Schauberger (30 June 1885 - 25 Sept 1958): Austrian forester, naturalist and inventor.

Viktor Schauberger (30 June 1885 Holzschlag (Austria) - 25 September 1958 Linz, (Austria)) was a forester, naturalist and inventor. Walter Schauberger was his son.



"As best demonstrated by Nature in the case of the aerofoil maple-seed, today's propeller is a pressure-screw and therefore a braking screw, whose purpose is to allow the heavy maple-seed to fall parachute-like slowly towards the ground and to be carried away sideways by the wind in the process. No bird has such a whirling thing on its head, nor a fish on its tail. Only man made use of this natural brake-screw for forward propulsion. As the propeller rotates, so does the resistance rise by the square of the rotational velocity. This is also a sign that this supposed propulsive device is unnaturally constructed and therefore out of place."

— Viktor Schauberger, Implosion Magazine, No. 112, p. 52.

Founder of implosion technology. Schauberger studied the phenomena of the fluidic vortices. He insisted that nature uses the Falling Thermal Gradient for upbuilding, and the Rising Thermal Gradient for deconstructing. He noted that our modern technology only uses the Rising Thermal Gradient for movement, and therefore meets immense resistance, friction. He proved with his suction-turbines and other inventions, that by utilizing the Falling Thermal Gradient, it is possible to create 9x more energy than with a rising thermal gradient, and that the falling thermal gradient is the form of motion to be used to enable suction, instead of facing friction.


"Implosion is no invention in the conventional sense, but rather the renaissance of ancient knowledge, lost over the course of time."

— Viktor Schauberger, Implosion Magazine, No.36, p.3

Schauberger sought to develop energy-generating machines which, by the power of shape, form, and motion alone, were able to mimic nature’s processes. Whereas today’s main energy technologies use outward-moving explosion, such as fuel-burning and atom-splitting, his machines operated on the basis of inward-spiralling movements , or implosion. He wrote: ‘If water or air is rotated into a twisting form of oscillation known as “colloidal�?, a buildup of energy results, which with immense power, can cause levitation.’ Vortical motion, with rotational velocities of 15-20,000 revolutions per minute, accompanied by rapid cooling[see Viktor Schauberger Klimator Opensource project on PESWiki], created strong vacuum effects inside his machines. Some researchers think that the transmutation of matter into more ethereal states and the production of genuine levitational forces also occurred ed: transmutation -> [[1]].

....Schauberger and his knowledge of engineering in harmony with nature's creative movements. Schauberger pointed out that 20th century technology moves everything the wrong way - exploding, heating, pressuring. His own inventions used nature's quiet cooling, inward-spiraling suction motions instead, and the result rejuvenated instead of destroying.

"In contrast, all 'technical' machines, i.e. all dynamos, turbines, pressure pumps, propellers, explosion and steam driven engines, all furnaces, gas and electric heating appliances, all soil-tilling and harvesting machinery, etc. provide a developmentally harmful ex-pulse to initiate motion. Because of this and without exception, the atom lattice thus moved ruptures, resulting in the disintegration of the molecular (bacteriophagous) formations in suspension. In unnaturally moved air or water decadent stresses appear, causing the decay of the decisive energy-concentrates. This leads to the build-up of decadent potential and the decomposition of the blood of the Earth, and thus to a total economic collapse along the whole course of development."

— Viktor Schauberger from Technology & Biotechnology Oct. 1946 from Implosion Magazine, No 116 pp 37-45.

"The true foundation of all culture is the knowledge and understanding of water."

— Viktor Schauberger

Why should you care?

1. 1929: Developed a winding-impeller made out of copper, for electricity production out of a river (better and more sightly than the current dams), patented 1929 by the name of Jet-Turbine. Dynamic Hydropower page of Frank Germano's
2. 1922-1928: Developed a method of building log-flumes that would transport heavier-than-water timber via long distances by maintaining the temperature of the water in the flumes, and by inducing a spiraling motion in the material being transported. Numerous patents exist
3. Developed water-purification -methods using the egg as a model for the shape of the device. Aim was to create spring-quality water. Patent exists.
4. 1948-1950: Conceived and developed copper-based farming tools, which increased the crops, as opposed to the iron/steel-based gardening/farming tools which disrupt the energies of the soil. They are still being hand-crafted and created - development of the Golden Plough has received some minor spurts in the last few years.
5. 1940: Conceived, patented and built, various versions of the repulsine, for spin&suction-based implosion-technology-based technologies for energy-creation and .. levitation

(from Dale Pond: In the repulsine, air is passed through a narrow corrugated chamber created by two plates with impelling blades along the outer edge, so as to create a suction turbine.)

6. 1953-1958: Spent the last years of his life developing a heimkraftwerk (home power generator), first prototype of which is still in existence, the other two prototypes are apparently still in the United States.
7. 1933: Wrote a book called "Our Senseless Toil"

Proved that water is cooler after having hit a rock, than before.

8. 1945: Klimator, airconditioning device

Repulsator, spring-quality water-production device
Gasoline from water
Implosion-technology usages: cooling fans, cooling motors, etc.


Viktor Schauberger was born to a long line of Austrian foresters. Creeks and rivers flow fascinated him during his youth. Schauberger went on to develop a basic theory that contains a twofold movement principle for such phenonomena. In 1926, he did research at a timber flotation installation in Neuberg an der Mürz / Styria. In 1929, Schauberger submitted his first applications for patents in the fields of water engineering and turbine construction.

Schauberger did research on how to artificially generate centripetal movement in various types of machines. Schauberger proposed a means of utilising hydroelectric power by a [jet turbine 117749 Austrian Patent].

In World War II, Schauberger developed, under duress, his concepts of vortex dynamics at the service of Germany's SS. The SS conducted continuous observation of Schauberger activities. In Augsburg, Schauberger works with Messerschmidt on engine cooling systems. Correspondence with designer Heinkel about aircraft engines. In 1944, Schauberger developed his Repulsine machines at the Technical College of Engineering at Rosenhügel in Vienna. Schauberger produced several working prototypes. The Russian and American military confiscated his work at the end of the war. After the war, Schauberger worked on a concept of water-based power generation through vortex action, in a closed cycle. In 1958, Schauberger return to Austria, after negotiations with an American oil company (dodd-gerschheimer corporation), and forced to stop any further research with implosion technology. Viktor Schauberger dies on September 25.

"If the 'surrounding' has the same density as the 'surrounded', then there is neither gravitation nor levitation. If the 'surrounding' is denser than the 'surrounded', then the 'surrounded' must rise."

— Walter Schauberger - Implosion Magazine No.35, p.17

Sir Isaac Newton refers to it thus: 'Nature is a perpetual circulatory worker, generating fluids out of solids, fixed things out of volatile, and volatile out of fixed, subtle out of gross and gross out of subtle. Thus perhaps may all things be originated from Ether.'
