was a most extraordinary man who gave to the world a new wonderful system
of healing” Homoeopathy” Even though the modern school of
medicine rejected in the past, the scientific nature of discovery is not
It is true that
the followers and opponents both have not realized even today is the fact
that Hahnemann was the forerunner and usher of the present atomic age,
a man who looked 160yrs ahead of his times into the atomic age and taught
that atoms may be split and the energy so generated could be used to ameliorate
human suffering. And this he did long before one ever dreamt of an”
atom age”, the value of the process of splitting the atoms to release
the dynamic power which was brought to our attention only during world
war-I. It was first discovered in 1816 by the German scientist who was
a chemist and physician in Leipzig.
Samuel Hahnemann laboured day and night during 1816-17-on the idea but
did not communicate his discovery to his students till 1827 when he declared
“certain phenomenon have led us to suppose that the physical virtues
of those substances of nature which we call matter can be developed by
trituration. But no one has ever been suspected to what extent this dynamic
power can be excited by trituration and subsequent succession.
consider matter as something inanimate but astonishingly great powers
can be developed by friction. Very few understand the phenomenon taking
place when we strike steel against flint, that the sparks are tiny particles
of steel which require 30,000 degree Fahrenheit to melt. Thus the calorie,
in a latent condition is called into play causing release of dynamic force.
of splitting atoms to release atomic energy was discovered by Hahnemann
and the knowledge was made use of by him practically in therapeutics long
before his colleagues even dreamt of such possibility.
All honors to
Hahnemann who had persecuted and was hunted from town to town by furious
apothecaries and enraged orthodox medicos for declaring 160yrs ago(ie;till
1978) that atoms can and must be split so that atomic energy may be evolved
to ameliorate human suffering.
