And, Kumar, what has all this to do with the scientific foundations of homoeopathy?

Kumar, if you want a course in nuclear physics I suggest you enroll in some university.

How then we shall be able to discuss?

Is there any difference in effect giving property by a single wave and long wave consisting of many waves? How we see multiple waves in an image?

Electromagnetics, now? And optics?

Kumar, you are the embodyment of the proverb "one fool can ask more questions than seven wise men can answer".

What is the purpose of these questions?

Why do you want to know about energy/matter conversion? - It has nothing to do with homeopathy.

Why do you want to know about primary particles? - It has nothing to do with homeopathy.

Waves? Nothing to do with homeopathy.

Optics? Do you want I explain how the eye detects an image? I can, but .... why?

How shall we be able to discuss? Discussion is an interchange between people who have knowledge of what they are discussing. It is not somebody asking questions they don't really understand themselves and making uninformed guesses based on the fraction of the words they understand in the answers.

A meaningful discussion of any topic requires the participants to have some knowledge and understanding of the topic. Imparting that basic knowledge and understanding to someone who does not yet possess it is not discussion, it's teaching. This is a discussion board, not a teaching board. If you want to discuss any topic here it's your responsibility to first acquire sufficient knowledge and understanding of it to be able to participate in such a discussion.

Based upon Kumar's demonstrated physics comprehension level I think a university course is a bit ambitious. This book may be a better starting point.

Not before addressing the issue but definately yes after it so that such sticking is avoided next time.

Given the current topic, are you proposing that we plan to avoid the Big Bang next time around?

Well then, go out and figure out the big bang and the origin of life. Then, and only then, will your own ideology allow you to discuss your medical mythology.

A small question:

What is Optical distortion? Can an object's molecules be rearranged in such a manner, its emitted or reflected radiations do not come into spectrum form but just come in individual form? When taking its photo, photo is not true to that object?

Optical distortion is what you see through a stained-glass window, or colored glass. It affects the geometry of the image, and it may remove or attenuate part of the spectrum. It doesn't add any information.

After 84 pages, and 3343 posts on the subject, still not one iota of proof for homeopathy.
In fact, Kumar has said that he doesn't want to talk about it anymore.

Will you finally accept that you were wrong Kumar?
Or are you going to argue that your evidence has been homeopathically diluted beyond perception and is therefore extra potent?

It is homeopathically relevant. Its relevance has been diluted so many times that there is almost no relevance left. It is thus more potently relevant than anything posted so far.

Thanks. Can we blunt or reform any object which emit or reflect wavé or EM radiątion simgly or individually not in spectrum form of many cólours like in sunlight?

I feel, it may be difficult to molecularized or atomized a substance, still in substance form of many type of stone/molecules.

ps. all substances emit different wavelengths, of various combinations. There are more wavelengths than rainbows.

No. It is not possible. You have things backwards. By definition, the energy coming off an object will be in the spectrum. The spectrum is defined by the forms in which energy can come off an object. It may be outside the range particular equipment is designed to measure, but that's as close as you're going to get to energy outside the spectrum.

I think - just a guess here - that Kumar wants his radiation (from any source or object) to be emitted / arrive one quanta at a time.
