I have to admit I have tasted it from time to time

We don't know for sure yet, but scientists are speculating that this old water may contain living organisms despite its isolation. This might even have implications for the possible presence of life on Mars


I feel like I've seen this somewhere...

I kind of thought all water was two or three billion years old anyway

It is. That's why I avoid spending money on expensive homoeopathic remedies. They're all in my tap water in a much stronger dilution for free. I also avoid spending money on expensive homoeopathic remedies because I'm not stupid.

It tastes terrible. It is much saltier than seawater.

i was trying to remember where i heard of this guy before. then it hit me. it was that article 'insane scientist drinks seawater'

I bet it probably can't even be used to create super-compressed-steam-powered weaponry.  -_-;

The atoms are old but they don't stay together as water molecules for that whole time. When you drive a car the hydrogen in the fuel combines with oxygen in the atmosphere to produce new water vapor in the exhaust. Plants destroy water molecules during photosynthesis.

I was under the impression all the water on earth arrived in it's Present form on comets and such as The earth was coagulating

I have no idea but if I were to hazard a guess I would say water as we know it is six to Nine billion years old

I gave two examples of it doing exactly that. Right now your own body is generating new water from the oxygen you're breathing, plus hydrogen from food you ate previously.

Even in oceans and lakes, individual molecules don't stay together forever. Water self-ionizes into H+ and OH- ions, and the H+ from one molecule may eventually recombine with the OH- from a different molecule. You can tell this is happening when you look at the different isotopes of hydrogen and oxygen (e.g. if you start with a molecule of two hydrogen-2 atoms bonded to an oxygen-18, you can later measure one of those hydrogen-2 atoms attached to an oxygen-16 and a hydrogen-1).

There are also hydrated minerals which contain oxygen and hydrogen as part of their crystal structure.

This is Brucite. It's a rock. If you grind it up you'll get a dry powder. But if you heat it up enough it will give off water and leave behind magnesium oxide.

I see.
Water particles exchange molecules and so become renenwed

That certainly makes sense the other never seemed Quite right to me

Why was it written that may have been stuff I saw On a PBS documentary

Back to my computer this should be much easier

guess my interest is infinite big bangs and the processes of the formation of our universe

and my view of water comes from what is presented when you delve into that

I suppose if you're a molecular biologist your truth would be very different yo

You can break apart water molecules by running an electric current through it, like with electrolysis.
You can create water molecules by causing a hydrocarbon to react with oxygen, like with combustion.

IIRC, water also is continually added to the atmosphere via stray bits of comets and things.

We have a springpipe, big 2 inch pipe with a valve on it thats usually half open. 38 degrees f  year round, it feeds 3 miles of creek andca 4 acre lake before flowing into our big lake. Great for drinking, brewing, and all other uses. Too cold for swimming in the ponds along th he way down and the small lake but the quality is great, best tasting water in the world bar none. No idea how old it is...

However, no scientific evidence exists regarding their medicinal value. To the contrary, water from hot springs often contains large amounts of toxicdissolved materials, such as arsenic, that have leached from underground layers of rocks.

2020-06-07 11:53:44 PM  
My contention is there are indications to support that arsenic may be of some health benefit as a trace mineral in synergy

and I rarely used the Arsenic Springs at Ojo
and I have taken hundreds of baths at Ojo
pre incineration
