Dr. Masaru Emoto of Japan did pioneer research on the crystalline structure of water and documented with frozen ice crystals that the human consciousness through thoughts and words, and the exposure of music, had an effect on the molecular structure of water.

Its nature, avalanches are not 'beasts', you are taking the risk by crossing an area where they can occur. Its very sad that people die because of them but they knew the risks.

If I get caught in avalanche, I would be happy with beautiful snowflakes surrounding me. I'll go snowboarding next week.

Ok. So globally 150 people die from avalanches per year. And in car accidents globally per year?
Real McQoy (2 months ago)
Good question. This 2019 winter is quite the doosie so far; as U can see they are trying to kill as many of us in traffic fatalities as they possibly can: with the “dangerous snowflakes “

Now the point is to know what kind of snow is formed beneath, but what about the kind of water they are formed of? Can there be certain elements which mixed with water can derive in a different kind of snow?
