“Dynamic Energy” Reflects the Limitations of Scientific Knowledge Available to Hahnemann!

HAHNEMANN UTILIZED THE CONCEPT OF “DYNAMIC ENERGY” DUE TO HIS “INABILITY” TO EXPLAIN CERTAIN PHENOMENA HE OBSERVED “BY ANY OTHER MANNER”!

Read Hahnemann saying in Organon : Aphorism 11 : Sixth Edition: Foot Note:

“Is it then so utterly impossible for our age celebrated for its wealth in clear thinkers to think of dynamic energy as something non-corporeal, since we see daily phenomena which cannot be explained in any other manner?”

It obviously means, he would not have thought about the concept of ‘dynamic energy’, if it was possible for him to explain these “daily phenomena” “in any other manner”!

Hahnemann was compelled to ‘think’ about ‘dynamic energy’, only because he saw many daily phenomena which he could not explain in “any other manner”‘. It amounts to a humble confession by the master:

Which were those “daily phenomena” Hahnemann observed, “which cannot be explained in any other manner” that prompted him to think about a “dynamic energy” that is something “non-corporeal”?

Further he gives in the same footnote a list of “daily phenomena” which he could not explain by any other manner other than “dynamic energy” as follows:

“If one looks upon something nauseous and becomes inclined to vomit, did a material emetic come into his stomach which compels him to this anti-peristaltic movement? Was it not solely the dynamic effect of the nauseating aspect upon his imagination?”

“if one raises his arm, does it occur through a material visible instrument? a lever? Is it not solely the conceptual dynamic energy of his will which raises it?”

“Our earth, by virtue of a hidden invisible energy, carries the moon around her in twenty-eight days and several hours, and the moon alternately, in definite fixed hours (deducting certain differences which occur with the full and new moon) raises our northern seas to flood tide and again correspondingly lowers them to ebb. Apparently this takes place not through material agencies, not through mechanical contrivances”

“we see numerous other events about us as results of the action of one substance on another substance without being able to recognize a sensible connection between cause and effect”

“dynamic effect of the sick-making influences upon healthy man, as well as the dynamic energy of the medicines upon the principle of life in the restoration of health is nothing else than infection and so not in any way material, not in any way mechanical”

“Just as the energy of a magnet attracting a piece of iron or steel is not material, not mechanical”

“One sees that the piece of iron is attracted by one pole of the magnet, but how it is done is not seen.”

“This invisible energy of the magnet does not require mechanical (material) auxiliary means, hook or lever, to attract the iron. The magnet draws to itself and this acts upon the piece of iron or upon a steel needle by means of a purely immaterial invisible, conceptual, inherent energy, that is, dynamically, and communicates to the steel needle the magnetic energy equally invisibly (dynamically).”

“The steel needle becomes itself magnetic, even at a distance when the magnet does not touch it, and magnetises other steel needles with the same magnetic property (dynamically) with which it had been endowered previously by the magnetic rod”

“a child with small-pox or measles communicates to a near, untouched healthy child in an invisible manner (dynamically) the small-pox or measles, that is, infects it at a distance without anything material from the infective child going or capable of going to the one to be infected”

“A purely specific conceptual influence communicated to the near child small-pox or measles in the same way as the magnet communicated to the near needle the magnetic property.”

These were the “daily phenomena” which he could not explain by “any other means”, and compelled him to explain using the concepts of “dynamic energy”.

1. Hahnemann could not scientifically explain how limbs are raised at will- and hence, he explained it using dynamic energy.

2. Hahnemann could not scientifically explain why people get nauseated by seeing others vomit- and hence, he explained it using dynamic energy.

3. Hahnemann could not scientifically explain how measles and chicken pox are transmitted- and hence, he explained it using dynamic energy.

4. Hahnemann could not scientifically explain why earth revolves around sun- and hence, he explained it using dynamic energy.

5. Hahnemann could not scientifically explain the phenomena of high and low ebbsl- and hence, he explained it using dynamic energy.

6. Hahnemann could not scientifically explain how a magnet attracts an iron needle- and hence, he explained it using dynamic energy.

7. Hahnemann could not scientifically explain how a steel needle gets magnetized in the vicinity of a magnet – and hence, he explained it using dynamic energy.

8. Hahnemann could not scientifically explain the phenomenon of life – and hence, he explained it using vital force and dynamic energy.

9. Hahnemann could not scientifically explain disease and cure- and hence, he explained it using dynamic energy.

10. Hahnemann could not scientifically explain symptoms and drug proving- and hence, he explained it using dynamic energy.

11. Hahnemann could not scientifically explain how substances get medicinal property- and hence, he explained it using dynamic energy.

12. Hahnemann could not scientifically explain how potentization really worksl- and hence, he explained it using dynamic energy.

13. Hahnemann could not scientifically explain how potentized drugs act- and hence, he explained it using dynamic energy.
