When I did my master’s degree in Genetics, in the early ’70s, time without internet, without Google, without access to many scientific articles, we did a discipline with a professor from São Paulo, Prof. Sérgio Olavo Pinto da Costa.

Besides being an excellent teacher, he brought the latest scientific news, including viruses that had RNA, rather than DNA, along with an enzyme called reverse transcriptase.

This revolutionized all the knowledge of the time and what one had as a dogma, as the great truth of life, that is, the DNA-RNA-protein sequence, ceased to be true and a new world opened up.

In 1988 the journal Nature published an article by the immunologist Jacques Benveniste, which referred to the ability of water to retain the property of substances that have been diluted in it, such as Water Memory.

These results caused enormous scientific controversy and were later challenged by the magazine’s editors because of the lack of reproducibility. Most recently, Nobel laureate Luc Montagnier, co-discoverer of HIV, has taken up the subject. According to him, always investigated the unusual, preferring to innovate, not like to work with established certainties.

After a series of experiments, mainly with biophysics, and working with small scientific groups in Europe, the United States, and Asia, has gained a new insight into the properties of water. According to Montagnier, Benveniste was the Galileo of the twentieth century, because he was condemned a priori for his position that went against the scientific dogmas in force.

And why do I quote these two cases? To show that science as well as religion has many dogmas, is made by humans, therefore fallible. It is fundamental to keep our minds and hearts open, for there is still much to discover.

Water is the main solvent used in homeopathic medicines and if so far, we know so little about it, to the point that a Nobel Prize is “catching up” from the scientific community, how to understand exactly from where the healing power of homeopathy comes from?

Perhaps of the much older wisdom contained in the verses of this little shamanic poem “The Sacred Path cards” of Jamie Sams: “A magical vessel of beneficial healings, visions, dreams and what endures beyond the Void of time and space, you bring healing to all races.

To the seers and healers, the water that contains the old wisdom brings back. To seekers and to the needy your salutary ointment brings relief.” And of the beautiful music of Guilherme Arantes where he exclaims several times “Terra! Planeta água!” (Earth! Water planet!)
