A spider’s web construction is crucial to the survival of the spider. The symmetry and structure of the web allows for the spider to catch its prey and ensures further life for the spider. Due to web construction being essential to survival, the structure and efficiency of a spider’s web can be used to determine the spider’s health. Hexagonal water is an enhanced type of water that has been known to improve bodily functions. When spiders are given hexagonal water, the efficiency of their webs should increase due to the beneficial properties of hexagonal water.

Hexagonal water is a liquid crystalline network of water. All water contains certain amounts of hexagonally shaped water. Hexagonal water can be found in nature. For example, snowflakes are super-cooled forms of water that are nearly 100% hexagonally watered. Specifically, hexagonal water is a complex arrangement of water molecules where six molecules are formed to make a ring structure.

There are many factors influencing the amount of hexagonally shaped water contained in an H2O sample. For example, the amount of energetic influences that the water is exposed to will influence the amount of hexagonal units in the water. If there are many pollutants in the water, the amount of hexagonal structures in the water will be reduced. (www.ekpt.com/Science). Through Dr. Jhon’s research on hexagonal water, it has been determined that structured water is more powerful. The amount of energy (calories) that the hexagonal water can store is much greater than the amount of energy that unstructured water can store. Hexagonally structured water can benefit biological organisms and lead to healthier life.

The orb weaver (Neoscona Crucifera) spider has a distinct pattern on its web that makes it ideal for research studies. Neoscona Crucifera are usually found in dry open forests and wood lands (www.austmus.gov.au). These spiders can create either horizontal webs that run parallel to the ground or vertical webs which are perpendicular to the ground. These webs can reach up to 3 feet in diameter. Down the center of the spiders web is a thick zigzag line of which the function is currently unknown. The spider usually waits in the center of its web waiting for the prey to come to it. The appearance of the orb weaver family is one of the most varied among spiders. (www.bugguide.net). Females are bigger and have a “golf ball” like abdomen and a very small head, while the males are smaller in appearance. The males are generally not seen and usually do not spin webs. Instead, they can be found searching for mates. The females, on the other hand are the ones mostly seen constructing webs. The webs are made by pyriformes silk glands which secrete silk building proteins that are dissolved in highly concentrated solutions (Chang 2). When combined, a super-resilient silk called dragline is formed. Dragline isn’t sticky allowing for greater mobility by the spider. Orb weavers are typically nocturnal; usually they remain stationary in their webs, waiting for the dark. The dragline serves as the spider’s anchor as it waits for prey to approach it (Wonder 1). The spider then immobilizes the prey, and may eat it instantly, or save it for later. At dawn, the spider will take eat its webs helping for absorption for moisture (www.bugguide.net). The spiders’ diet usually consists of flies, small insects, beetles and bugs. Although orb weavers usually prey on organisms smaller than themselves, they are also capable of consuming larger creatures. These orb weavers are very docile creatures and are not dangerous to pets or animals; these are non-aggressive spiders and will flee at the sign of danger.

Hexagonal water is a very beneficial form of water due to its unique properties that aid in bodily functions. Hexagonal water is formed through a specific arrangement of water molecules where six H2O molecules consistently link to form a ring like structure. The structure of hexagonal water is held together by common hydrogen bonds. The strength of these bonds is determined by two factors which are temperature and pressure. As the temperature is increased, the strength of the hydrogen bonds decrease. There is a similar inverse relationship between the strength of hydrogen bonds and the amount of pressure surrounding it. The strength of these bonds determines how long the hexagonal water stays within the body. This is a unique arrangement of a whole complex crystalline network created when many hexagonal structures are bonded together (www.ekpt.com/Science). For example a snow flake is six sided because a snow is formed by many hexagonal water structure super cooled form that shape (www.aqua technology.net). In Dr. Masaru Emoto’s book, The Message From Water it shows the crystalline structures of water and how different energies influence the water. (www.ekpt.com/Science). This structured water is able to activate enzymes, increase immune function, and help metabolic balance (www.cheric.org). Hexagonal water effectively energizes cells, allowing for greater physical energy and muscularity (www.karinya.com/clusteredwtr.htm). They also help immune function by producing a healthy alkaline bio-terrain in the cells, in which diseases cannot survive in. Hexagonal water also enhances the ability of cells to remove toxins, and repair themselves. Hexagonal water is a very advantageous substance for the body to utilize and has many useful characteristics.

Hexagonal water improves the ability of bodily functions. The hexagonal shape that the six water molecules form is actually more easily absorbed by cells, therefore increasing the efficiency of hydration by 30% (www.karinya.com/clusteredwtr). Clustered water also has a higher capability of storing and transferring more energy in the form of calories than unstructured water does (www.aquatechnology.net). “Cells surrounded by less structured water are weaker and more prone to malfunction and genetic mutation.”-Dr. Jhon (www.ekpt.com/Science). Clustered water even has the ability to improve efficiency in metabolic activity. Structured water aids in the activation of enzymes allowing for quicker function. The size of the water is a factor in the cell’s ability to absorb it. It is known that the smaller the size of a molecule of water, the greater the penetrating power it has into cell membrane thus enabling enhanced cell hydration. (www.ekpt.com/Science). Molecules of water are measured by Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR). Tap water has an NMR of 120 Hz while clustered water has an NMR of about 63.6Hz, almost half the NMR of tap water (www.karinya.com/clusteredwtr). With the exception of VIVO brand water, the majority of clustered water formations last for a few days after separation from a vortex generating device. However, when made with specifically, the Vitalizer Plus, the formation can last up to twenty days when stored in a refrigerated environment. (www.aquatechnology.net) Seeing as the body is composed of 70% water, and 99.5% of all molecules being water, along with 83% of blood containing water, plus 74% of the brain enclosed in water, in addition to 82% of the kidneys being water, and our muscles being made up of 75% water, hexagonally structured water can deeply influence the functions of the body. (Rossetti 1) By improving the type of water the body functions on, the body’s health can be enhanced.

Hexagonal water can be related to the process of aging. Aging is the loss of Hexagonal water from organs and tissues. As a result, there is an overall decrease in the total water found in the body. (www.ekpt.com/Science) Therefore, if hexagonal water is constantly used to replenish the lost water in the body, greater vitality and longevity can be achieved. This is because the body receives a much more efficiently structured water which it can use to perform bodily functions.

Several studies including those conducted by NASA, as well as those conducted by Thomas Hesselberg and Fritz Vollrath, have been performed to explain the effects of various substances on the web construction and behavior of spiders while constructing the web. An inverse relationship demonstrated through these studies that the more toxic the drug, the less organized the web the spider created (www.caffeineweb.com). When spiders were given marijuana, the spiders drifted off before finishing the job. When dozed with Benzedrine, the spider worked energetically; however, did not engage in much planning. The spiders given chloral hydrate fell asleep in the middle of web construction. When given caffeine, the spider was incapable of creating a single organized cell in its web. The web showed no signs of the, “hub and spokes” pattern which are fundamental to conventional web design. The total length of all radii of the web was significantly reduced by an average of 5cm and the eccentricity of the web was also reduced by about .8 (Hesselberg and Vollrath 523). When drugged with amphetamines, there was a reduction in the speed of web construction (525). There was also a reduction in spiral building efficiency with the dose of amphetamines, as well as irregular radii in the shape of the web.

The special properties of hexagonal water such as its ability to be more effectively diffused into the cell are extremely advantageous to the health of all biological life forms. Neurotoxins and different drugs negatively affect the web construction of spiders and deformed the shape and structure of the webs. Since the actual silk that the spiders secrete to make webs is a solution that contains large amounts of H2O, if hexagonal water was given to a spider, the effects should be favorable towards the web construction of the spider. If utilized correctly, hexagonal water could lead to greater longevity as well as healthier life for all.
