water snowflake


Ask Ethan: Could you have two perfectly identical snowflakes?

“I know scientists say that no two snowflakes are alike, but I say "how can you definitively know that unless you can see every single snowflake that falls.” Maybe a snowflake in Russia falls [at] the same time as a snowflake in Minnesota and they’re the same.“

When you see a snowflake, what you’re seeing is a thin crystal of ice, with intricate, hexagonally-symmetric features that reveal themselves under a microscope. Although snowflakes come in a myriad of different shapes and patterns, there’s one adage you’ve heard since you were a kid: that no two snowflakes are alike. From a scientific perspective, is that true? What gives snowflakes their intricate structures, and what does it truly mean for a snowflake to be unique? Do we require the exact same branching structure? Can we obtain that if we create them artificially? Do we require identical-ness down to a molecular or atomic level? And how much snow would we need for that to happen?

Come find out the real science behind two snowflakes being alike on this week’s Ask Ethan!

Zutara Month 2016, day 6- Snowflakes!

I’ve been writing so much angst that I needed some cute fluff to compensate. There hasn’t been any snow or ice in my country for years and I really miss the harsh winters we used to have… Plus, I’m always a sucker for Zuko in a blue Water Tribe parka.

Bubble Magic

Before first bringing his performance to television in the early 80s, Tom Noddy spent over a decade developing a new kind of performance piece.

Sitting alone with dime store bubble solution, a childlike sense of wonder and an adult sense of humor he brought a new thing into being: Bubble Magic.

Snowflake Man

Wilson Alwyn “Snowflake” Bentley (February 7, 1865 – December 23, 1931), is one of the first known photographers of snowflakes.

He perfected a process of catching flakes on black velvet in such a way that their images could be captured before they either melted or sublimated.

Snowflake Structure

Unlike popular belief that there exists an infinite number of shapes that snowflakes can occur in, there are only 35!

Albeit no snowflake is the same from an atomic standpoint, these are the 35 shapes of snowflakes which have been documented thus far to occur in nature.


⚓︎ MERMAIDS ⚓︎ → Arctic and Cold Water

unlike the other species of mermaids, arctic mermaids have blubber and very smooth tails that can sometimes get mistaken for other aquatic animals. they are both prey and predators, often hunting fish alongside seals but are often prey to certain whales if resources run low. they’re quiet and shy, however very friendly towards the other wildlife. they interact rarely with humans, preferring to remain hidden in the snowflake kissed water. 

You Call Out My Name (For The Love You Need)

“I’m so sorry, baby,” she says, as they watch the car burn in the silence of the first spring night, which still seems like it’d be winter. The small drizzle of water has turned into snowflakes and they are still falling, but they don’t feel cold. Some stick to Louis’ hair and eye lashes and they stay there, like they’d be part of Louis. 


Louis thinks he has fallen in love. He’s so sure about it. Then everything changes. He gets into a car accident with his mother and suddenly his life turns from living into being an angel. He doesn’t know what to do with his time, until his mother gives him a task.

Harry is trying to make it as an artist. He spends his days on the streets, playing his guitar, and his nights at a pub. He loves his whiskey and he likes his one night stands. When a guy with blue, bright eyes sits next to him in the pub, he realises things could be a lot different.

In other words, Harry is a street artist and Louis is an angel. Based on this fic prompt by the-cheshire-pussy-cat .

The Ancient Solfeggio Frequencies and their Effect on Water Crystals.

These original Sound Frequencies were apparently used in Ancient Gregorian Chants, such as the great hymn to St. John the Baptist, along with others that church authorities say were lost centuries ago. The Chants and their special tones were believed to impart tremendous Spiritual Blessings when sung in Harmony during Religious Masses.
These powerful Frequencies were rediscovered by Dr. Joseph Puleo as described in the book “Healing Codes for the Biological Apocalypse” by Dr. Leonard Horowitz.

The Six Solfeggio Frequencies include:
UT (396 Hz) - Liberating Guilt and Fear
RE (417 Hz) - Undoing Situations and Facilitating Change
MI (528 Hz) - Transformation and Miracles (DNA Repair)
FA (639 Hz) - Connecting/Relationships
SOL (741 Hz) - Awakening Intuition
LA (852 Hz) - Returning to Spiritual Order

For example, the third note, frequency 528, relates to the note MI on the scale and derives from the phrase “MI-ra gestorum” in Latin meaning “miracle.” Stunningly, this is the exact frequency used by genetic biochemists to repair broken DNA, the genetic blueprint upon which life is based.

* - I know the idea of gendering anything is problematic here. These are my personal correspondences for my personal practice. If you perceive the elements as otherwise gendered or not gendered at all, that’s absolutely fine. Personal correspondences are just that, personal. Find what feels right to you and use it!
