The more extensive regulatory works become, destroying waters naturally-ordained inner functions, the greater the ensuing danger to the riverbanks and the surrounding area. Now characterless, the water breaks its bonds. Having become unstable, it seeks to regain its soul with one last supreme effort. The water-masses abandon their proper course and countless water-borne energy-bodies are dropped by the exhausted water. Disoriented, it now turns on these organisms and robs them of their life-force. Deprived of their souls, their sources of energy, they begin to rot. Bacteria develop and the Earths arteries are suffused with cancerous decay.
Sinking into the ground, this diseased water now contaminates groundwater. As it rises through the capillaries of the soil and vegetation, this very Blood of the Earth carries the embryo of this fearful disease with it up into the widest variety of plants. This leads to the qualitative degeneration of vegetation, principally in the internal decay of forest trees. As a further consequence, it leads to a regression in the quality of everything in which water circulates. Ultimately in accordance with a law which operates with awesome constancy, it will slowly but surely come around to our turn. The spreading of the most terrible of all diseases—cancer—is the inevitable consequence of these unnatural systems of regulation. It goes without saying that specialists in other fields also have a hand in this work of destruction.
