Quantum Teleportation And Witchcraft

Updated on February 13, 2013

Recently, there was much ado about homeopathy in the UK and why it should not be paid for by the NHS. The reason? The BMA or the British Medical Association felt that it was akin to witchcraft. Witchcraft? So what are they planning to do? Burn those white pills or worse, those practitioners at the stake? It’s almost as though time were rolling back to the days of the Inquisition and anything that was beyond the then realm of comprehension was dubbed as evil and worthy of destruction.

And now comes this revolutionary test carried out by Chinese scientists and I couldn’t help thinking – is this the crack in the door leading to the possible proof that some alternative remedies work and the revelation of how they work? I’ve always been an advocate of all streams of medicine working in conjunction with and not against each other. This is why I don’t quite like the term ‘alternative’ because it tends to suggest that conventional and the other streams of medicine operate in mutually exclusive ways. The ideal way would be for all streams to find their own level and be used in conjunction with each other – with a time and a place for every one of them.

Where would homeopathy, Bach remedies and biochemic tissue salts and all the other alternative therapies fit in when it comes to healing? The ideal way would be for them to be in the area of prevention, used in the main treatment if necessary to help things along and be used when there is no other hope.

I digress. How would quantum teleportation help to prove that many of these alternative streams of healing are indeed effective? While no one really knows the answers, this experiment does throw up an amazing number of ‘What ifs?’ First, let’s take a look at what the experiment was all about. It involves quantum entanglement or entangling two objects. In this case, it was two photons and they were separated by ten miles. The photos were entangled to the maximum limit possible using spatial and polarization modes. Then, without any signal transmission, without any fibre connecting them, the second photon responded to the changes that took place in the first. (Invisible strings of the String Theory?) For most people who read this report, the first thought was doubtless a time when a ‘Beam me up, Scotty’ command would be possible. Then of course would come the next thought – is this what voodoo is all about? If someone pokes a doll made to look like me far, far away from where I am, would I feel the pain? If someone tickles an image of me, would I laugh till I cried even though I were miles away? The possibilities could range from awesome to scary to hilarious.

When it comes to homeopathy or Bach and biochemic remedies, here is a series of ‘What if….’ questions that can now be asked.

What if the miniscule energy of these remedies can be ‘entangled’ to the energy of health in the universe and work from within to bring about healing?

What if the energy in these remedies communicate with the body’s own healing methods to bring about better health?

What if these remedies just help us vibrate to a different frequency and raise us from sickness to health?

What if, instead of suppressing disease the cure comes from the smallest particles in our system responding to the call of this miniscule prodding?

What if the world already has everything we need to bring our bodies and lives back to balance and these are some of the ways for that to happen?

What if by some chance, they work and we haven’t figured out how as yet – should we just throw them out without giving them a chance?

A simple, animated explanation of quantum teleportation

      Hi herbivorehippi - so glad to meet a fellow believer. Thanks for coming by and reading!

      What an intriguing hub!! I totally believe that there are many elements that are much more healing than what physicians and pharmaceutical companies can every provide. I'm a firm believer in natural elements and healing stones. Now this hubs gives me other ideas to think about. Fabulously written! Rated up for sure!

      Hi equealla - how true - sometimes experience might just be as good or better then tried, tested and proven methods of healing. And that's what makes this sad!

      Sounds a lot like memes on microscopical level. The human body had been created to repair itself. We cannot understand everything, and if it works, why deny it?

      The part of the human brain that we use (about 5%) is too small to judge things unseen. They can call it alternative, witchcraft, spooky, cranky or whatever they want to, if it is good for the wellbeing of humankind, then it is good enough for me.

      It is just so sad, if taken in account, that the power hungry will always block the better for mankind, in order to maintain their control.

      How true Ixxy - imagine the progress we could make if we worked together instead of working against each other all the time!

      Spooky and wonderful - sound great together, don't they?

      "’ve always been an advocate of all streams of medicine working in conjunction with and not against each other."

      I'm with you on that! All sciences should strive to work in harmony, instead of debunking each other.

      Ah, quantum entanglement...spooky action at a distance. Einstein knew about it...seems like nearly a century ago, eh?

      What wonders we will find soon enough...

      I try to look at things like this, if the human soul is possible, anything is possible. The human soul has got to be one of the most unexplainable inventions yet here we are. Anything can be possible. great hub thanks for sharing!

      Hi saddlerider1 - that's positive prophecy at its best - thank you. Yes, I like to think that what we see now is only through a glass darkly. Thanks for reading and commenting.

      The thin vale is being opened to us every day by superior minds from other dimensions and universes. Full disclosure is a peek away. I truly believe that our world as we know it will change dramatically in the upcoming years. We are still so primative in our thinking but on the verge of great advances in medicine and science.We will take Quantum leaps as the thin vale is opened for the world to see. Thanks for this share.

      Hi, I love quantum physics, and on some atomatic level you are probably quite right. I don't think you need to worry about the voodoo doll, which is made to look like you, unless they have got some of your hair or nails! lol then then entanglement might well be there ha ha very interesting hub and I loved the video, this was a very simple way to explain entanglement. thanks rated up cos I liked it! lol cheers nell

      And what if miracles are actually made up those minute elements - that science is faith or faith is a science? Or maybe there are things that we shouldn't know but must accept. An open mind is better than a sure mind. I think :D

      Hi Amanda - it's so great to see you back! There's so much we don't understand, isn't there? And it could be that it's all just beyond our ken, not that it doesn't exist. All I feel is, give every method of healing the benefit of the doubt - within boundaries, of course. Thanks as always for reading and for adding to this hub!

      Hi Pam - I'd like to believe that all it is, is a connection and if we stay connected, we can draw of the goodness of the source. I like to believe they are strings of energy - as some quantum physicists do.

      Maybe there's a lot in Nature that's already working on these principles - much bigger than photons - maybe all we need to do is look and find :)

      Amazing! I agree that homeopathic medicine and traditional medicine should work together. Well said. :)

      About quantum! What a concept! I'd like to know more about quantum entanglement and what that really means in real people language. I looked it up, but it's written in "physics" language, and I'll have ask a physics buddy of mine to translate it for me. lol! But from what I could gather on my own, it appears to be rather controversial (as many things of this nature of hidden variables, violation of the principle of general relativity, and blah blah blah stuff that I don't understand.

      I'd like to see this experiment done on something other than protons. Wouldn't that be interesting?! :)

      Nice job!

      Hi Shalini, I had never heard of quantum entanglement before, but it makes a lot of sense. In a way it is just an extension of the studies done on identical twins where their life experiences closely mirror each other, often in surprising and unlikely ways. My husband is a non-identical twin who actually experienced his twin sister's labour pains when she had her first baby! I don't know whether actual teleportation of matter will ever be possible, but I'm certain that every one of us on this planet is capable of sending and receiving signals to others, even at a distance. We just don't all realise it yet.

      As to homeopathy, I have an open mind as to it's efficacy having never used it myself, but I do know someone who has successfully used it on their animals, so I guess that rules out the placebo effect!

      Hi CMHypno - yes, in all probably it is the drug companies with vested interests. Unfortunately for them, with the coming of the Internet, there has been so much exchange of ideas from all corners of the globe and people are more exposed to different methods of healing. The sad part is, they can co-exist as both have their merits.

      Thanks for coming by!

      Hi Shalini, there is a bit of an assault going on in Europe on many complimentary therapies and herbal medicines. Much of this is prompted by the big drug companies, who have a vested interest in all of us staying sick and taking their pills. Such a large part of healing is in believing that something will work, and one big role that complimentary therapists play is that they have more time to actually talk to their clients as an appointment is generally an hour long. At a GP in the UK you get 10 minutes with a busy and harassed doctor who may never even have seen you before.

      I love science, but I think in the scheme of things it is young and struggles to keep up with the mind and the ever expanding universe, one day we will see better how and why such things work

      Loved the article

      Hi ilmdamaily - thank you for your kind comments. I suppose everyone can see connections if they open their eyes and don't close their minds. I hope there comes a time when 'knowledge' stops being so confining and starts being more open.

      Nellieanna - thanks so much! Like you, I believe that balance in everything is the key to the harmonious existence that is our right in the universe.

      "What if the world already has everything we need to bring our bodies and lives back to balance and these are some of the ways for that to happen?"

      I believe it does &/or we do. Balance is the thing.

      I really love this hub. I will be reading it again! Thank you, Shalini!

      What a wonderful hub Shalini! I'm very impressed by the way you've linked homeopathy, quantum physics and the inquisition - you have a gift for breaking down the inconceivably complex into, neat, relevant, profound chunks:-) Hmm chunks sounds bad...but you know what I mean...maybe nuggets!

      Often people fail to see the common thread of faith that runs through existence. Mystical or empirical, fundamentally the way everyone views the world stems from their perceptions of reality - which themselves elude objective analysis.

      The relationship between consciousness and "reality" remains as closed to us as it was thousands of years ago - and I think the arrogance that surfaces in so much of modern "knowledge" stems from this inability to perceive the oh-so-shaky foundations it all rests upon.

      Your hub goes some way to correcting that! Great work:-)

    • Shalini Kagal profile image

      Shalini Kagal 7 years ago from India

      Hi Vladmir - yes, you are clear - but does faith and other methods of healing really have to be dissociated? What if faith is the unseen link or strings attaching one to the Divine or the Universe? We don't have the answers - but what if? :)

      Hi Green Lotus - maybe it is - maybe we're just grasping at straws - or strings? - to try and find connections. But the possibilities seem so immense!

      Great thoughts on homeopathy and I loved the video and its message "teleportation is not practical, but it is possible". I actually believe anything is possible in this infinite world of ours. Quantum mechanics and entanglement are probably at the heart of homeopathy and similar energy medicines. I also believe the mind is involved. If you don't think it works, it probably won't work for you. I know it works for me. Rated up and useful!

      Hi Shalini.

      See miracles are supernatural suspension of natural laws. I believe that they are possible but rather not disturbing the natural process. Electromagnetic waves are in the borders of physics. Then they work all the time, using right tools.

      I am not sure (perhaps some yes) that anyone tries to halt progress. We have to be just sure that certain method of treatment is not only part related to the faith, rather than general use. If something is faith I believe in it but I do not connect it with some methods claiming they work by itself. I am not sure I am clear. Bless you.

      Greetings, Shal!

      Teletransportation I am told is possible from one location to another specific one. So Scott can only "beam you up" and not away to a location of your choice. So I consider this form rather primitive!!!

      It is said that there are some mystics who are able to locate themselves in any part of the universe and at the speed of thought too! Scott is not needed here! So why experiment with photons?

      My s/o's late Dad was not into alternative medicine but he went to see a homeopathy practitioner at the suggestion of his wife for his high blood pressure. A few remedies healed him totally, and this so impressed my s/o that it gave him a life long interest in homeopathy.

      You raise good questions!

      I am all for homeopathy. I think we should learn all the old remedies from round the world. There is a wealth out there to be learned. I think it is Chemical compampanies which tries to stop it, after all they would loose a fortune. Thank you for a very interesting hub.

      What an interesting hub Shal. As you come closer to your birthday, your brain is working finer and sharper, I see :)

      I am a big fan of homeopathy and I too think we need to give other schools of medicine a fair chance. After all allopathy doesnt have all the answers. Those last few questions really gives us something to think about.
