Yay!!! GoopTalk™! Brand new GoopTalk™! Nothing gets me through a dreary Wednesday afternoon grind like Our Lady of Goop talkin' about stuff. This week on the mind of Goop: Water has feelings and if it gets grumpy it turns to poison! (Goop. Quick Q. Are you sure you aren't thinking of snakes?)
In the latest Goop Mag, Gwyneth endorses the work of Dr. (are you sure?) Masaru Emoto, whose book The Hidden Messages in Water claims that objects can be physically changed by "positive or negative words."
"I have long had Dr. Emoto's coffee table book on how negativity changes the structure of water," Paltrow wrote on her blog. "How the molecules behave differently depending on the words or music being expressed around it."
"I am fascinated by the growing science behind the energy of consciousness and its effects on matter," Paltrow added.
Paltrow goes on to share the theories of Emoto through Dr. Habib Sadeghi in her newsletter. In his column, Sadeghi claims he "proved that energy generated by positive or negative words can actually change the physical structure of an object."
So, I guess the process works something like this.
Water molecule BEFORE:
Bully: "HEY, WATER MOLECULE! YOU STINK!"
Water molecule AFTER:
Got it. Seems plausible. So DRINK UP, SHEEPLE. ENJOY YOUR EVIL WATER AND YOUR POISONED HEARTS.
