Weird Homeopathy – Positronium

“A Remedy prepared from the Annihilation Radiation of Positronium”

Image of the "annihilation" process known in elementary physics. It shows how a positron (e+) is emitted from the atomic nucleus together with a neutrino (v).

You what?? Apparently the remedy was created after a homeopath received a “vial containing anti-matter”. Wow. Homeopaths can carry antimatter around in a vial. I’m impressed. Now, I’m not a particle physicist, but I’m pretty sure you can’t just carry around a vial of positrons. Can someone ask Professor Brian Cox?

It cures various mind symptoms such as indifference (“can’t be bothered”), restlessness, and oppression. The appendix talks about Heisenberg, Schrödinger and Dirac – they would have been proud to be associated with such amazing “medicine”.

There is a helpful (?) diagram of the “map of the component states” encountered during the proving. I think you are supposed to take Positronium if you are having “dreams of toilets & shit” or are thinking about “Violating Mother Earth

Admit it: making this stuff up takes talent.
