High Dilutions of Something are NOT Nothing
In a remarkable interview published in Science Magazine on December 24, 2010, Professor Luc Montagnier expressed support for homeopathic medicine: What I can say now is that the high dilutions (used in homeopathy) are right. High dilutions of something are not nothing. They are water structures which mimic the original molecule.
The Science interview concluded when Montagnier was asked if he is concerned that he is drifting in pseudoscience. He replied adamantly: No, because it’s not pseudoscience. It’s not quackery. There are real phenomena which deserve further study.
Montagnier says that under the right conditions, electromagnetic signals can be transmitted from test tubes containing a highly diluted DNA sample to a different test tube containing only water and that, when enzymes which copy DNA molecules are then added to this water, they behave as if DNA molecules are present, producing new DNA molucules (2009). This ‘teleportation’ effect of the DNA, from one test tube to another was found to occur only when the homeopathic procedure of sequential dilution, with vigorous shaking of the test tube was utilised.
