Undoubtedly, a majority of living processes take place only for a reason that they occur in the aqueous environment and are reliable only due to the so called “schizophrenia” of water. A schizophrenia of water is manifested in its “anomalous” properties. For example, one of the most striking anomalous property of water is its high electric conductivity arising, as usually emphasized in the text book of physical chemistry, due to the large mobility of the H+ ion.
