Some homeopaths think that therapeutic actions of post-avogadro diluted homeopathic medicines could be explained using the concepts of QUANTUM PHYSICS.
They should bear in mind that Quantum physics is a branch modern science that deals with the behaviour of matter and light on the atomic and subatomic scale. It attempts to describe and account for the properties of molecules and atoms and their constituents—electrons, protons, neutrons, and other more esoteric particles such as quarks and gluons.
Attempts of explaining homeopathy using QUANTUM PHYSICS comes from the idea that drug substances are converted to SUBATOMIC PARTICLES and ENERGY during the process of homeopathic potentization.
The funny thing is that those who now comes with QUANTUM THEORIES of homeopathy were so far talking about NANOPARTICLE research in homeopathy!
They should understand, NANOPARTICLES has nothing to do with QUANTUM PHYSICS. Science of nanoparticles deas with the study of SUPRA-MOLECULAR and SUPRA-ATOMIC FORMATIONS of matter, where as quantum physics deals with the study of SUB-ATOMIC particles and forces. First of all you have to decide whether it is “subatomic particles” or “nanoparticles” you are talking about.
Anybody with high school level knowledge of science is aware that complex chemical molecules contained in drug substances cannot be converted to subatomic particles or energy particles by the process of potentization. With the minimal mechanical energy involved in “shaking”, you cannot break the very strong covalent bonds that hold atoms together in a chemical molecule.
What a ridiculous nonsense it will be if anybody says he can split a simple water molecule into oxygen and hydrogen atoms by “shaking” it? It is wonderful to see that our homeopathy “scientists” are imagining about converting matter into energy by the simple mechanical process of shaking involved in potentization! To convert drug substance into energy, they have split molecules into atoms, atoms into subatomic particles, and then subatomic particles into energy particles. One have to be an idiot to believe that it is happening during potentization!
Even if somebody could split drug molecules into atoms and subatomic particles, how can those particles retain the medicinal properties of complex drug molecules? Medicinal properties of drug molecules are due to their peculiar structure and chemical properties. How can an individual atom or subatomic particle retain the chemical properties of complex drug molecules?
Once the complex molecules are divided into constituent atoms, their molecular level properties are lost. Once the atoms are split into subatomic particles, their atomic level properties are lost. When matter is converted into energy, it will be ENERGY only. There cannot be a NUX VOMICA energy or SULPHUR energy once they are converted to energy form!
Same way as our SCIENCE-STARVED homeopaths swallowed the nonsense “nanoparticle theory” without asking a single question, they will swallow this QUANTUM PHYSICS THEORY OF HOMEOPATHY also! Especially when BIG scientists are talking it!
