The assertion that ‘local’ theories of homeopathy are traditional appears to be contradicted by Hahnemann's description of the action of homeopathic medicines as ‘spirit-like’. Entanglement theory prohibits the use of entangled states to convey information. Experimental proof of entanglement can only come indirectly. The implications for clinical research include that positive results will probably be found only in large series and that studies should avoid imposing a causal framework.
