What these geniuses fail to realize is that our oceans are already infinite dilutions of virtually every substance that has ever existed on the planet. If their theories were correct, then a vial of seawater would cure every single disease known to man, and then some. They hallucinate that the water remembers all of the things that were ever in it. That's frightening, actually: what about all the people who drowned, like the Titanic victims. Does the water have a memory of that? And, if you want to get technical, just think of all the human waste that ends up in the ocean. Logically, sea water is really just a homeopathic solution of human urine. Enjoy your swim and your ocean fish!
What I do wonder about, and have never seen discussed, is what I call "anti-homeopathy." Just for a joke, let's pretend that their theories are correct. Then, it would logically follow that infinite dilutions of some things would cause diseases, just as infinite dilutions of other things would treat them. So if you wanted to harm your neighbor, you could go to an anti-homeopath--sort of like a witch doctor--and find out what infinitely diluted substance would cause, say, rabies, and give your neighbor that infinitely diluted solution. The perfect crime! With anti-homeopathy you could kill people and get away with it, since the police would never be able to recover the weapon, since there would be none. Maybe I could sell my idea to the Mafia.
When people start talking about water "remembering" things, then I say, get some Thorazine. Look at it logically: memory is information. If water is "remembering" anything, it has to be storing that information somewhere. When you remember something, your brain stores that information physically. When your computer "remembers" something, that information is physically stored. Show me where water is supposed to "store" this information. Does each molecule have an assistant that writes down all the information? Does each molecule have a clipboard or briefcase?
Think about it. Take a spoonful of water out of your toilet bowl. Talk to the water, ask it how it is today, ask it where it was yesterday, or the day before. That may sound ridiculous, but there actually exist people who think that water is susceptible to your mental state, i.e., that it behaves differently in the physical world when you think "happy" thoughts than when you think "angry" thoughts. I haven't seen their theories on how many feet away you can be for this "effect" to occur, or how it is alleged to work when different people are all present thinking different types of thoughts.
Ask yourself, does the water remember being in the water pipe in your house? Does it remember being in the city water line? Does it remember being in the water purification plant? Does it remember being in the ground or lake that your city got it from? Does it remember being in a rain cloud? Since the water molecules get all mixed up, do the individual water molecules remember each other, the ones they were next to a minute ago, or what? Considering just the mixing that occurs in solution leads to an impossible amount of "remembering" that would have to be done without adding other substances into the water. Does water molecule #475 in your beaker remember that it was next to molecules #376 and #687 five minutes ago, and that it was next to an atom of lead at 5:32 PM yesterday? That would require a phenomenal amount of information content to be stored in each water molecule. Show me where and how this information is stored, and, even better, show me how it is accessed.
What I am trying to do is to show you how you can reduce such concepts to absurdities by accepting the premise and seeing what its truth would imply. For instance, you would have to ask, is it just the hydrogens that do the remembering, or just the oxygens, or the molecules themselves? And is this some property of just the individual molecule, i.e., if we were to extract a single molecule and place it elsewhere, would that single molecule "remember" anything? Or is this supposed "remembering" a property of some multiple of water molecules? If so, how many? And since they all get mixed up and move around in solution, how does that work? At this point, you should realize the the whole concept is a hallucination, which is why I keep joking about there not being enough Thorazine prescribed in our society.
