Background: A preliminary mathematical model for the Vital Force had
been developed based on the idea of a metaphorical gyroscope, combined
with earlier notions derived from Weak Quantum Theory (WQT)
and Patient-Practitioner-Remedy (PPR) Entanglement. This combination
generates a hypothetical ‘wave function’ as a description of the state of
the Vital Force that is intimately related to the secondary symptom picture
of the therapeutic remedy, and is capable of illustrating certain empirical
observations of the homeopathic process, including the bi-phasal
action of remedies and some of the results gained from provings. Objective:
The goal of this present study was to further develop the idea of
a Vital Force ‘wave function’ by generating insights into its mode of reaction
to therapeutic intervention by a practitioner. Methods: In orthodox
quantum theory, the time-dependent Schrödinger equation, in
which a particle’s wave function is operated upon by the Hamiltonian
total energy operator, provides information concerning the temporal
evolution of the wave function. By analogy, a secondary-symptom-dependent
Vital Force equation is postulated in which the Vital Force ‘wave
function’ is operated upon by a so-called ‘homeopathic operator’. Results:
By inserting the previously developed wave function for the Vital
Force into the secondary-symptom-dependent Vital Force equation, another
equation is generated mathematically reminiscent of longitudinal
mode standing waves set up in the resonant cavity of a laser. Conclusion:
In the language of therapeutics, it is often said an essential part of
the curative process is that practitioners act as ‘mirrors’ for their patients.
Previous papers in this series have shown that this reflective
practitioner activity is more than a poetic analogy. Borrowing from the
mathematical formalism of quantum theory, with its ideas of entangled,
coherent wave-functions as metaphors for the homeopathic process,
this mirror-like activity can be seen to be an integral part of the curative
therapeutic encounter. The preliminary theoretical investigation reported
here develops the metaphor further by suggesting that the effect of
this practitioner mirror-like activity on a patient’s Vital Force during the
therapeutic encounter, might be likened to the sequence of operations
by which lasers function. The analogy seems compelling, as an essential
feature of laser operation is the arrangement of parallel mirrors placed
at both ends of the laser’s resonant cavity.
