In 2007, a prominent researcher in the field of structured water, Professor Rustum Roy of Pennsylvania State University, showed for the first time that extreme homeopathic dilutions are not mere water, but highly structured arrangements of water molecules. In fact, various types of instruments in Roy's laboratory were able to pick up the distinct signatures of different remedies, even at levels of dilution in which no remedy substance likely remained .
Homeopathic experience has shown that these unique signatures can then be transmitted to dry pills, and that the power and distinct effects of these pills remain stable indefinitely if they are stored properly...
Interestingly, the potentization process can be used to capture the energetic signature of any substance, not just those used to make homeopathic remedies. This has been shown repeatedly by several independent scientists in replicated studies.
For example, consider the work of Jacques Benveniste, a French physician and medical researcher in the field of immunology who helped discover platelet-activating factor in 1972.
Unfortunately, Benveniste's career was set upon a rocky course when a colleague encouraged him to study the phenomenon of potentization.
His first paper about the subject described how antibodies of immunoglobulin E (anti-IgE) could be potentized beyond Avogadro's number (the point at which it is unlikely to find a single molecule of a substance remaining in a dilution) and still cause substance-specific effects.
When Benveniste published these results in the prestigious journal Nature in 1988 , he came under a barrage of attacks that lasted for the rest of his life.
But perhaps this wasn't surprising. Benveniste's work had essentially shown that any drug could be potentized and still remain effective. That means that billions of doses of any drug could be produced for pennies - information that drug companies would spend a fortune to attack and suppress.
And in fact, there is evidence that a world-wide campaign to discredit homeopathy has been funded by the pharmaceutical industry for this very reason [14,15].
Despite the attacks on Benveniste and his subsequent loss of government funding in France, he continued his work and came up with even more astounding results.
Because he suspected that the potentization process conveys an electromagnetic signal into the water of a dilution, he developed an apparatus that could digitally record it. He then transmitted this signal electronically - via E-mail - to a distant laboratory, and had it "replayed" into water there.
Amazingly, the resulting water caused the same effects as the original substance. Benveniste eventually conducted several blinded experiments using this protocol.
He published a paper in the Journal of Clinical Immunology in 1997 that described one such experiment, in which a specific antigen was potentized, recorded, E-mailed to Chicago, and replayed into water in a Chicago laboratory.
This water did indeed cause antigen-specific effects on isolated guinea pig hearts.
I saw Benveniste present this paper at Stanford University Medical School in 1999. The large lecture hall was standing-room only, but the audience was politely incredulous.
Of course, Benveniste's new results in what he called "digital biology" were even more mind-boggling and threatening than his original paper in Nature.
Not only could billions of doses of a substance be prepared cheaply using potentization, but its signature could be E-mailed and imprinted into water essentially for free...
Despite the fact that other initially-skeptical scientists have successfully replicated his work [17,18], acceptance of Benveniste's work remains for the future. Perhaps, with the growth of a new consciousness in the scientific community, that future will arrive sooner rather than later.
Indeed, in 2009, some new research conducted by Nobel prize winner Luc Montagnier confirmed the same kinds of effects that Benveniste described ...
