This blog talks about interrelations of homeopathy and holistic ways of healing with the world beyond medicine, with spirituality, science and politics. The homeopathic way of thinking and questioning about problems, crises and solutions is extended to encompass more than issues of individual health. During two hundred years of work with crises and suffering we have developed a holistic way of looking at contexts and a specific way of listening, which may prove to be very helpful in collective contexts as well. In a loose series of articles I wish to show this by different current issues.

In response to an article against homeopathy that was so bad that I will not do him the honour of spreading it by mentioning it, I wrote the following lines:
After reading your article about the lack of material content in homeopathic globules, I experienced a big shock: Maybe there are more products which don't contain what the label says? I thought about what else looked very similar, although it had different names on it.
Then my eyes fell on my CD collection. I took a few of the disks to a friendly and very trustworthy chemist. And lo and behold: He could not find any differences. There were neither any molecules of Mozart or violins, nor of ACDC or electric guitars within the CDs, although this could be clearly read on the labels. The chemist claimed that all my CDs were made of the same plastic and did not differ chemically. Obviously I had been cheated by the so-called music producers, because they only sold me a bunch of cheap plastic with coloured labels, and I paid for Mozart and ACDC.
I admit that while I practiced the so-called "playing" of these CDs I had the illusion to listen to the desired music, although there were no musicians or instruments present. It must have been an acoustic hallucination that occurred because I wanted to hear the music so badly and had paid so much money for it.
Thank you for opening my eyes with this article so that now I know that I have to have everything that is important to me checked for authenticity by a chemist. - And if now even I myself am not chemically detectable in my body? Then at least I know that I don't even exist and don't have to think about such things anymore. What a relief!
