‘Dynamic Drug Energy’ Evolved From Master’s ‘Inability’ To Explain Phenomena “In Any Other Manner”

In his Footnote to to Aphorism 11  of Organon Sixth Edition, Hahnemann has put on record:  “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?”. This statement amounts to a humble confession by the MASTER regarding his “inability” to explain the phenomena “in any other manner”, which compelled him to explain homeopathy in terms of VITAL FORCE and DYNAMIC ENERGY. This “inability” of master clearly demonstrates the infantile state of scientific knowledge available to him, obviously due to the limitations of historical context he lived in

While commenting on my facebook post, one senior homeopath from India told me: “Since potentized drugs contain DYNAMIC drug energy, SIMILIMUM will act curative, even if the patient simply holds the DRUG BOTTLE in his hands for a few minutes, without opening it.”

Even though his statement may at first glance seem to be only a  BELIEF of an individual homeopath, actually it represents a strong current of ‘philosophical’ thought existing among the homeopathic community. More over, this ‘philosophy’ has its roots in the original theory of homeopathy based on VITAL FORCE and DYNAMIC ENERGY. Dogmatic ‘followers’ of hahnemann believe that potentized drugs contain DYNAMIC DRUG ENERGY, which act ‘dynamically’ up on the ‘vital force’ of organism. According to hahnemann, DYNAMIC ENERGY is ‘immaterial’, ‘conceptual’, and ‘spirit-like’, which act from a distance, without any carrier particles.

DYNAMIC ENERGY is different from the forms of PHYSICAL ENERGY we study in science. PHYSICAL ENERGY always act through exchange of CARRIER particles, which are forms of matter. LIGHT, ELECTRICITY, MAGNETISM, GRAVITATION, NUCLEAR FORCES- all these physical energies act through exchange of CARRIER PARTICLES.

If we believe in a NON-MATERIAL, SPIRIT-LIKE DYNAMIC DRUG ENERGY, that can act from a DISTANCE without any carrier particles, there is nothing wrong in believing that potentized drugs can act from a distance, or by holding bottle in hands. REAL PROBLEM LIES IN THE THEORY OF DYNAMIC DRUG ENERGY.

If you believe in DYNAMIC DRUG ENERGY and VITAL FORCE, you will have to agree with all these NONSENSE theories these people talk.  You cannot disown the statement of that ‘senior homeopath’ that potentized drug will act by ‘holding’ the bottle, without actually disowning the concept of DYNAMIC DRUG ENERGY. Both ‘ACTING FROM A DISTANCE’ and ‘ACTING DYNAMICALLY’ are same in meaning. Both concepts evolves from UNSCIENTIFIC philosophy of DYNAMISM.

If you believe potentized drugs carry DYNAMIC ENERGY, how can you imagine it to remain confined inside the bottle only? How can a glass bottle prevent the IMMATERIAL, CONCEPTUAL, SPIRIT-LIKE FORCE from ‘radiating’ out? Why can you say, the ‘energetic’ VIBRATIONS of drugs will remain inside the bottle? Is it not ridiculous to say that a MATERIAL object can block the escape of an IMMATERIAL FORCE?

There a lot of DRUGS marketed by HELIOS, which are PROVED by TRITURATION PROVING, DREAM PROVING and MEDITATION PROVING. In TRITURATION PROVING, the PROVER simply TRITURATES the drug up to 3c, by which time he is said to produce SYMPTOMS by dynamic effect of drugs he triturated. Those symptoms are collected and compiled as materia medica. In DREAM PROVING, the drug is kept under the pillow of the prover. Due to the dynamic effects of that drug, prover is said to experience characteristic DREAMS in his sleep, which are immediately recorded. In MEDITATION PROVING, the prover simply MEDITATES about the drug kept in his hand. In meditation, he experience the symptoms. If all these things could actually happen, drugs will act by simply holding the bottles in hands. WHY NOT?

SEE HAHNEMANN EXPLAINING HIS CONCEPTS OF ‘DYNAMIC ENERGY’ AND ‘DYNAMIC ACTIONS’ IN ORGANON:

Organon : Aphorism 11 : Sixth Edition: Foot Note:

“What is dynamic influence, – dynamic power? 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, as are used for products of human labor; and so 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. Only the cultured, practised in comparison and deduction, can form for himself a kind of supra-sensual idea sufficient to keep all that is material or mechanical in his thoughts from such concepts. He calls such effects dynamic, virtual, that is, such as result from absolute, specific, pure energy and action of the one substance upon the other substance.

For instance, the 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, just as 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.

In a similar way, the effect of medicines upon living man is to be judged. Substances, which are used as medicines, are medicines only in so far as they possess each its own specific energy to alter the well-being of man through dynamic, conceptual influence, by means of the living sensory fibre, upon the conceptual controlling principle of life. The medicinal property of those material substances which we call medicines proper, relates only to their energy to call out alterations in the well-being of animal life. Only upon this conceptual principle of life, depends their medicinal health-altering, conceptual (dynamic) influence. Just as the nearness of a magnetic pole can communicate only magnetic energy to the steel (namely, by a kind of infection) but cannot commu nicate other properties (for instance, more hardness or ductility, etc.). And thus every special medicinal substance alters through a kind of infection, that well-being of man in a peculiar manner exclusively its own and not in a manner peculiar to another medicine, as certainly as the nearness of the child ill with small-pox will communicate to a healthy child only small-pox and not measles. These medicines act upon our well-being wholly without communication of material parts of the medicinal substances, thus dynamically, as if through infection. Far more healing energy is expressed in a case in point by the smallest dose of the best dynamized medicines, in which there can be, according to calculation, only so little of material substance that its minuteness cannot be thought and conceived by the best arithmetical mind, than by large doses of the same medicine in substance. That smallest dose can therefore contain almost entirely only the pure, freely-developed, conceptual medicinal energy, and bring about only dynamically such great effects as can never be reached by the crude medicinal substances itself taken in large doses.

It is not in the corporal atoms of these highly dynamized medicines, nor their physical or mathematical surfaces (with which the higher energies of the dynamized medicines are being interpreted but vainly as still sufficiently material) that the medicinal energy is found. More likely, there lies invisible in the moistened globule or in its solution, an unveiled, liberated, specific, medicinal force contained in the medicinal substance which acts dynamically by contact with the living animal fibre upon the whole organism (without communicating to it anything material however highly attenuated) and acts more strongly the more free and more immaterial the energy has become through the dynamization.

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? 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? And 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?”

Explanations hahnemann provide for his concept of DYNAMIC DRUG ENERGY quoted above clearly demonstrate the infantile state of scientific knowledge available to him, obviously due to the limitations of historical context he lived in:

Note the following points carefully:

” 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.”

” Substances, which are used as medicines, are medicines only in so far as they possess each its own specific energy to alter the well-being of man through dynamic, conceptual influence, by means of the living sensory fibre, upon the conceptual controlling principle of life.”

” The medicinal property of those material substances which we call medicines proper, relates only to their energy to call out alterations in the well-being of animal life. Only upon this conceptual principle of life, depends their medicinal health-altering, conceptual (dynamic) influence.”

“That smallest dose can therefore contain almost entirely only the pure, freely-developed, conceptual medicinal energy, and bring about only dynamically such great effects as can never be reached by the crude medicinal substances itself taken in large doses.”

“It is not in the corporal atoms of these highly dynamized medicines, nor their physical or mathematical surfaces (with which the higher energies of the dynamized medicines are being interpreted but vainly as still sufficiently material) that the medicinal energy is found”.

“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?”

Please note the hahnemann’s last sentence quoted above carefully: “think of dynamic energy as something non-corporeal, since we see daily phenomena which cannot be explained in any other manner”. IT AMOUNTS TO A HUMBLE CONFESSION BY THE MASTER:

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

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

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

Hahnemann could not scientifically explain why earth revolves around sun- and hence, he explained it using DYNAMIC ENERGY.

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

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

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.

Hahnemann could not scientifically explain the phenomenon of LIFE – and hence, he explained it using VITAL FORCE and DYNAMIC ENERGY.

Hahnemann could not scientifically explain DISEASE and CURE- and hence, he explained it using DYNAMIC ENERGY.

Hahnemann could not scientifically explain SYMPTOMS and DRUG PROVING- and hence, he explained it using DYNAMIC ENERGY.

Hahnemann could not scientifically explain how substances get medicinal property- and hence, he explained it using DYNAMIC ENERGY.

Hahnemann could not scientifically explain how potentization really worksl- and hence, he explained it using DYNAMIC ENERGY.

Hahnemann could not scientifically explain how potentized drugs act- and hence, he explained it using DYNAMIC ENERGY.

THE TRUTH IS OBVIOUS: HAHNEMANN WAS COMPELLED TO ‘THINK’ ABOUT A ‘NON-CORPOREAL’ ‘DYNAMIC ENERGY’, ONLY BECAUSE HE SAW MANY DAILY PHENOMENA WHICH HE COULD NOT EXPLAIN IN “ANY OTHER MANNER”‘
