I guess many people are looking for recipes or methodology which trips most
up most of the time. It is difficult to walk away from a paddy field or a
Holzer and think it can be rebuilt identicate somwhere else. Invariably
there are other dimensions that are missing from the recipe. These are
principles some times. In my opinion what Holzer has done in the
mineralised earths of Austria he has dug up considerable pieces of his
mineralsied earth and stimulated the elecromagnetic and radionic fields
that have layed dormant. This stimulation has created tremendous pulses of
energy in various life forces.
The asian rice fields with multi tiered systems like those we learnt from
George Chan are part of the localised ecologies which these people have
lived in for many generations. They have become conditioned to them. This
is seen in many farming patterns in many countries. That conditioning sets
up antibodies and natural barriers to potential shortages and harmful
elements that someone coming from a foreign environment is not conditioned
to. So it is often difficult to assimilate copy or imitate.
The greatest challenge is to understand what principles can be interpreted
understood and applied....Steve Hart.
