In this paper I would like to show the work of various renowned researchers who are opening up a new frontier in the practice of Homeopathy…the frontier of digitized information in homeopathic remedies.
It is now possible that the specific activity of biologically-active molecules (e.g., histamine, caffeine, adrenalin), not to mention the immunological electromagnetic signature of a virus or bacterium, can be recorded and digitized using a computer sound card, just like an ordinary sound. As we will see life depends on signals exchanged among molecules.
In biology, the words "molecular signal" are used often. Yet, biologists are not aware of what the physical nature of this signal is.
We have known for decades that molecules vibrate. Every atom of every molecule and every intermolecular bond-the bridge that links the atoms-emits a group of specific frequencies. Specific frequencies of simple or complex molecules are being detected at distances of billions of light-years, thanks to radio-telescopes.
Biophysicists describe these frequencies as an essential physical characteristic of matter, but biologists and biochemists do not consider that electromagnetic waves can play a role in molecular functions themselves.
Experiments by Benveniste have shown that we can transfer specific molecular signals by using an amplifier and electromagnetic coils. In July, 1995, he recorded and replayed these signals using a multimedia computer. A computer sound card only records frequencies up to about 20,000 Hz.
In the course of many experiments, he had led receptors (specific to simple or complex molecules) to "believe" that they are in the presence of their favorite molecules by playing the recorded frequencies of those molecules. In order to arrive at this result, two operations are necessary:
- record the activity of the substance on a computer,
- "replay" it to a biological system, sensitive to the same substance.
Therefore, there is every reason to think that when a molecule itself is in the presence of its receptor, it does the same thing: it emits frequencies which the receptor is capable of recognizing. This means that a molecular signal can be efficiently represented by a spectrum of frequencies between 20Hz and 20,000 Hz, the same range as the human hearing or music.
For several hundred thousand years, human beings have been relating sound frequencies to a biological mechanism: the emotions. Composers of background music for supermarkets or elevators are practicing neuron-psychology.
High-pitched rapid sounds stimulate lightness of spirit, highpitched slow sounds produce sweetness, and sounds both deep and rapid rouse the fighting spirit, while deep, slow sounds raise serious emotions, sadness and mourning. These are fundamentally cerebral physico-chemical phenomena, triggered by distinct frequencies. This is what we accomplish when we transmit recorded electromagnetic signatures to biological systems.
Biological systems function like radio sets, operating by co-resonance. If you tune a receiver to 108 MHz, you tune in the radio transmitting frequency of 108 MHz because the receiver and the transmitter vibrate at the same frequency.
The electromagnetic nature of the molecular signal sheds light on many shadowy areas of biology. We can now understand how millions of biological molecules can communicate (at the speed of light), each with its own corresponding molecule, and it alone.
Water is the vehicle for information. This cannot be avoided, since there are 10,000 water molecules in the human body for every molecule of protein. A submarine communicates with its base via low-frequency electromagnetic waves, not with megahertz frequencies, which do not penetrate water.
Experiments show that a molecule at a normally active concentration does not work in a medium devoid of water. Adding water is not enough to restore activity; it must be "informational."
In other words, when molecules trigger a biological effect, they are not directly transmitting the signal. The final job is done by perimolecular water which relays and possibly amplifies the signal. Sound is not directly created by a compact disc. The latter carries data which is audible only after being amplified by an electronic system.
What interests us is not the nature of the magnetic medium and how it functions, but the message recorded in it, which can be copied and transmitted.
