Water Structured in the Golden Ratio
Predictions from quantum chemistry calculations and state of the art cryogenic electrospray ionization infrared spectroscopy provide evidence that water exists as pentagonal dodecahedron clusters based on the golden ratio, the magic number woven into the fabric of the universe and consciousness

Emilio Del Giudice - Illuminating Water and Life
Emilio collapsed at his home in Milan Italy while in the throes of writing scientific papers with his colleagues and collaborators; he died in hospital later that evening, 30 January 2014. Emilio is the most brilliant scientist in the world who has inspired me among countless others. He is also the kindest, most generous, entertaining, wise and witty man. I had been so looking forward to discussing my latest ideas with him on mathematics, art, beauty, consciousness, and the universe (see The Story of Phi and other articles in the series); for such is his wide ranging interests and passion. That was not to be. He was taken away suddenly and without warning.
