Aquarian Research is not your usual rural retreat center, but we share
a 24 ft. dia. yurt in a loving cooperative village known as the Love
Israel Family, four hours by car north of Portland. The village with
some sixty people of all ages is certainly unusual, and Aquarian even
more so. Each summer the village sponsors a Garlic Festival for as many
as 15,000 people. August 13th to 15th are this year's dates, and folks
can call the family center at 360-435-8577 for information about that.
But Aquarian's story is different.
Years ago a ten-year-old boy asked his teacher: "What is the purpose
of life" and she replied: "The purpose of life is to have the highest
possible standard of living." Nine years later he asked college classmates
the same question: "No one can answer that question," they all agreed.
Then, at a Quaker meeting he learned of a group of 600 people in Paraguay,
S.A. who lived and worked together without money and did not go to war.
Thinking they might have the answer, he approached his college dean
who said: "A year at a place like that is worth more than a year at
That was enough. Art went there and found the answer he sought so he
remained with that group almost 17 years before going to work for the
peace movement. As a "Paraguayan-style" mechanic he could fix almost
anything and volunteered to set up printing presses for all kinds of
anti-war groups. Communal groups, religious, secular, even group marriages
gladly supported him with free room and board so he could do that work
without pay, and he also learned a lot from their lifestyle discoveries.
When most of his tricks were learned by many younger activists, Art
went to Philadelphia to start the Aquarian Research Foundation to find
out how this planet could have a really positive future. Tax exempt
status was donated by a law firm. Twenty-eight years and some miracles
later, Art was led to the work of Dr. Randell Mills and his team of
25 scientists. Mills made the startling discovery that hydrogen from
water could change to a lower energy form and thereby produce a huge
amount of heat without any pollution or radioactivity.
Our goal is that in a few short years, every little village can have
its own decentralized power. Pollution and the struggle for energy will
be coming to an end.
Right now Art is at the Love Israel Family north of Seattle, and one
of his team from the Portland area, Fritz Mishler, is meeting with the
first manufacturer who is likely to start manufacturing commercial heating
units that require NO fuel but water! Dr. Mills has authorized Aquarian
Research Foundation to do this and promised to hire additional engineers
to help us create the prototype and get the manufacturing going.
