why does water flow upwards if it is blocked directly at the source?
if one erects a dam directly at the source of a river, then the water outside the mountain flows upward, since also the water inside the mountain had flowed upward - through the underground streams that interlace the mountain. the water inside the mountain that is flowing toward the source must, in the case of a source lying at the foot of a mountain, again flow downward. the rise in the water caused by the dam corresponds to the difference in height between the place where the water vein surfaces and the highest point within the mountain from which water reaches the source.
