And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters“ (Genesis 1:2).
Without water, life isn't possible on earth. Life even originated in water. Water plays an important role in most religions: baptism, sacred springs and rivers, blessings with “holy water” etc... Since the Neolithic Age, humans were very aware of the importance of water as “bringer of life”.
In her book “Points of Cosmic Energy”, the Swiss dowser Blanche Merz (1902-1973) claimed that 14 water veins come together under the altar of Chartres cathedral (above). In the nineteen sixties, excavations were done inside the cathedral of Santiago de Compostella, Spain. About the same configuration of water veins was found under the altar there, and they are clearly “man made”. The currents of water are indicated on the pavement by fourteen black marble incrustations.
Under the basilique of Orcival, France, runs an artificial water current fed by a spring located at the western facade (below). The man made water currents are generally made of conical tile tubes.

On a rock, 600 m above Eaux-Bonnes in the Pyrenees, France, stands a little chapel.
There's no water in the underground, but when restoring the pavement inside the chapel, workers found an “artificial” water vein: a ditch carved in the rock filled with river pebbles ...
