Can one think of an effect or effects to use with this theory..it's something different that's for sure. Maybe one can look into a glass of water and divine a word or an item, or something like that ?

Thanks in advance..

The infuriating persistence of pseudo-science? "Some people believe that water possess memory. Take the practice of homeopathy. Practitioners use water's memory to concoct potent potions designed to unlock the bodies ability to heal itself..." 

A drop of water on the fingertip used as an impromptu crystal ball? Have someone "show" a previously peeked card to a container of water: "Now I'll dip my fingertip into the water, extracting a single drop containing the entire memory of the whole..." Transfer the drop to a spectator and give them the power?

Or what about waterboarding an object in order to extract the name of an object, word, etc? (Too soon?)

I suppose The Sands of Egypt - Is anyone still performing that effect? - could be used as a hook for such a presentation.

Something like the old "Think Ink" effect if you could find it, where the water visibly changes. Evil thoughts turn the water black?

The magician takes a sip of water and mentions the water cycle, a timeless rhythm of precipitation and evaporation... giving water a molecular omnipresence. As your high school science teacher might say, "There's a little bit of Napoleon Bonaparte in every glass of water."

By swirling the water in the glass, sipping and swishing--in a manner similar to wine tasting--the magician is able to ascertain the three words the spectator has secretly written to describe their happiest memory.

Some papers (such as rice paper) dissolve completely in water - although sometimes the water is cloudy after the paper dissolves.

A volunteer could write a word on a piece of paper, which is then dissolved in the water.  If the water had memory, then the magician could know the word by tasting the water.

About idea regarding dissolving paper in water. I remmeber reading in old rare magic magazine about an bizarre effect with plot about witch hunting. It was using particular kind of paper that dissolves into water. Magician would talk history about a witch that was sentenced to death by drowning. Spectator is ask to try to gues sher name and write it on a paper. Thn magician would talk about her being sentenced to death by drowning and do a center tear and paper would dissolve in a water and later you would reveal witches name (the one on paper). Pretty cool
