In the spring of 1998, French homeopaths decided to carry out a proving that lived up to both the expectations of the international homeopathic community and the principles Hahnemann set out in the Organon. We, therefore, chose to use the remarkably complete and detailed method given by J. Sherr to study the remedy which is the subject of this proving. As we are required to observe the criteria which give this type of study scientific validity, in particular the double blind principle and the use of placebo along with the active product, we also thought it desirable to try, insofar as possible, to attain a degree of compatibility with tests used by the pharmaceutical industry. Perhaps this type of approach will make it possible to bridge the gap between these two seemingly irreconcilable worlds.






We selected 20 provers, each of whom received six doses of one potency. They were asked to record their symptoms in a notebook and report them to a supervisor, of necessity a homeopathic doctor. The supervisor in turn recorded them in another notebook. After a week of observation, the provers began taking the remedy doses. They were instructed to take up to three doses a day over two days, with the understanding that it was imperative that they stop taking the remedy as soon as the first symptoms appeared.

The various potencies were divided as follows: five received the remedy in the 7 C potency, five in 12 C, five in 30 C, the last five received placebo. Each of the 120 doses was randomly assigned a number known only to the laboratory that prepared the remedy. In addition, the substance was chosen by a single person, a member of our study group, who did not disclose the identity of the substance until the proving was completed, that is, until the provers’ and supervisors’ notebooks were handed in to the director of the experiment. Obviously, this person did not participate in the proving, in order that the double blind rule might be completely respected.

For reasons related specifically to the health or availability of the provers, it was not possible for everyone to take the doses at the same time, which is why the experiment took place from October 1998 to April 1999. In spite of this, there did not seem to be any exchange of information between provers and/or supervisors that might have influenced the result.

The remedy chosen for the experiment—a metallic salt, neptunium chloride—had never before been made into a homeopathic remedy. Our choice was guided mainly by our desire to complete homeopathic knowledge about the basic constituents of matter—atoms. Therefore this work follows as part of the provings of other elements on Mendeleev’s Periodic Table of the Elements carried out over the past few years, namely, by increasing order of atomic mass: Hydrogenum, Helium, Oxygenum, Neon, Cobaltum, Germanium, Molybdenum, Indium, Tantalum, Tungstenum, Iridium, and Plutonium.






With atomic number 93, neptunium is found between uranium (92), the last of the natural elements, and plutonium (94) on the Periodic Table. Like its two closest neighbors, it belongs to the actinide series, so named because of the chemical affinity with actinium (89). First of the artificially produced elements, neptunium starts the series of the 11 transuranic elements, all radioactive, heavy metals. How neptunium was discovered is of interest as, in a way, it already bears the remedy’s imprint.


1) History


The work of Frédéric Joliot and Irène Curie (the son-in-law and daughter of Marie Curie) at the beginning of the 1930s showed the probable existence of elements higher than uranium. Various groups of atomic physicists started searching for the hypothetical "eka-rhenium," the name of the element above which the new atom should logically be placed in the Periodic Table. Thus, in 1934, in Rome, Enrico Fermi and Emilio Segrè announced the discovery of the first transuranic element obtained by the bombardment of a uranium nucleus using a source of thermal neutrons (slowed by water). However, to the great displeasure of its creators, the chemical and radioactive characteristics of the new element were difficult to interpret, as they were incompatible with and contradicted those theoretically expected. It was only in 1938 that Otto Hahn, Fritz Strassmann and Lise Meitner (from Berlin and Stockholm) published the results of their work on the discovery of the Italians. The bombardment of a uranium nucleus by neutrons, instead of giving birth to a new heavier element, had caused a uranium isotope[1], uranium 235, found in very low quantities (0.72%) in natural uranium, to split into two unequal fragments. Thus, the first nuclear fission in history took place without its authors’ knowledge. However, as early as 1934, another German physicist, Ida Noddack, intuitively understood Fermi and Segrè’s misconception, but had not been able to establish proof as she did not have the necessary equipment to carry out the experiment herself.

The start of the Second World War put an end to the collaboration between laboratories and sounded the death knell for nuclear research in Europe. The quest for transuranic elements resumed in the United States at the University of Berkeley, California. Aided by a new particle accelerator, E.M. McMillan and P.H. Abelson continued Otto Hahn’s work and they in turn noted that by adding a neutron to the nucleus of uranium 238, the latter disappeared in the space of a few hours. In the spring of 1940, they demonstrated that uranium 238 first develops into another isotope, uranium 239, with a very brief radioactive period[2] (23.5 minutes), before transmuting into a new element that they called neptunium[3], from the name of the planet Neptune discovered after Uranus.

In the years that followed, twelve other neptunium isotopes (229Np to 241Np) were isolated, among them isotope 237, discovered in 1942 by A.J. Wahl and G.T. Seaborg, remarkable because of its radioactive half-life of 2.14 million years. It is this isotope, by far the most common, which was used for the proving.


2) Physicochemical Properties


Like uranium 238 or plutonium 239, neptunium 237 is an alpha emitter, which means that as it disintegrates, it emits a particle formed of two protons and two neutrons (similar to a helium nucleus). It then transmutes into protactinium 233 (element 91). Obtained through a neutron bombardment of a uranium nucleus[4], neptunium 237 is used as a target in research reactors in order to obtain plutonium 238[5], which constitutes a significant source of energy for space missions. Finally, neptunium 237 is also found in nuclear waste where, mixed with other fission products, it appears in increasing quantity as a product of americium 241[6].

Certainly, it is calculated that there are 483 grams of neptunium remaining in a ton of irradiated uranium in a reactor at the end of three years, which does not seem like much compared to 7.6 kg of plutonium. But if we consider the length of its radioactive half-life, storage of neptunium will pose some long-term problems as it will continue to radiate long after all the other alpha emitters have disappeared. Because of this length, the radioactivity of neptunium 237 is weak: 0.69 mC/g (millicuries per gram). By contrast, 1,420 gm of neptunium 237 are needed to reach the level of radioactivity provided by only one gram of radium 226. If we compare it to plutonium 239, it is 90 times less radioactive, but its half-life is 90 times longer.

In its metallic form, neptunium has a silver color, as do most of the transuranics. It oxidizes slowly in the air, particularly as the temperature and the humidity levels increase. With a density of 20.5 gm per cm3, it reaches its melting point at 637°C. It is cold soluble in hydrochloric acid, hot soluble in sulfuric acid, and does not react with nitric acid.


3) Metabolism and Toxicity


The metabolism of neptunium shows a particular tropism for the liver and the skeletal system, as well as the adrenal glands to which it seems to permanently fix itself. It is eliminated mainly through the urinary system. Neptunium’s toxicity in research animals and a fortiori in humans in cases of accidental ingestion, must be viewed from both a chemical and a radiopathological perspective; the low level of radioactivity gives the chemical toxicity time to express itself. On this latter level, the liver is the organ most affected with a rapid fatty degeneration. On the radiopathological level, osteosarcomas have been observed, as might be supposed by neptunium’s tropism for bone tissue, as well as soft tissue, especially of the liver and kidney. Contrary to plutonium, neptunium has never been the subject of a toxicological study in humans.


4) Preparation Used


The preparation used to produce the various dilutions used in the proving was created in a French nuclear physics laboratory on September 10, 1996 by a radiation chemist and myself (Didier Lustig). The stock solution was contained in a test tube bearing the label NpCl (for neptunium chloride). This was stored with other radioactive products in a large safe made up of multiple drawers, inside a room with secure access. I was told that the solution in question was from a French source and was of "medium concentration" as regards the proportion of neptunium and hydrochloric acid.

We withdrew 0.15 cm3 of this solution and poured it into a vial containing 14.85 cm3 of deionized osmosed water supplied by the homeopathic laboratory that was to make up the doses. After capping the vial, we succussed it 100 times, thus obtaining the 1st centesimal potency. We then kept 0.15 cm3 of this first potency, emptied the contents from the vial, and again filled it with 14.85 cm3 purified water to which we added the 0.15 cm3 we had kept, then we performed the next 100 succussions to obtain the 2nd centesimal potency. We continued the procedure with one vial up to the 6th centesimal potency. It was part of this last potency (0.05 cm3) that was sent to the homeopathic laboratory to be made into the subsequent potencies used in the proving.






Neptune is the second to last planet in our solar system, both by its distance from the sun (4.497 billion km, that is 30 times the distance from the Earth to the Sun) as by the relatively recent date of its discovery. It is one of the three planets invisible to the naked eye along with Uranus and Pluto, between which it orbits. It was first observed on September 23, 1846 by the German astronomer Galle, thus confirming calculations made by Le Verrier to whom credit for the planet’s discovery is often given. It was photographed for the first time in 1989 by the Voyager II probe, which made it possible for the whole world to admire its superb blue color. The only contrast is a white spot in the southern hemisphere whose shape and size are continually changing and which conjures up images of sea foam. The presence of this spot leads us to believe that violent gaseous currents are constantly streaming through the upper layer of Neptune’s atmosphere. Composed solely of hydrogen, helium, and methane, Neptune, like Jupiter, Saturn, and Uranus, has no solid surface. Because of its distance from the sun, the diurnal temperature is very low: – 190°C.

The blue planet is the last of the giant planets: its size (equatorial radius) is slightly less than that of Uranus, but almost three times smaller than that of Jupiter. It takes 164.79 Earth years for it to complete one revolution around the sun and rotates on itself every 15 hours and 48 minutes.






Called Poseidon by the Greeks, then Neptune by the Romans, the god of the seas is easily recognizable by his emblem, a trident which he holds in his right hand. The Ancients relate that Neptune and his brothers Jupiter and Pluto, sons of Saturn, deposed their father using a subterfuge developed with the help of their mother, Rhea. They then divided the world between themselves: Jupiter chose the heavens, Pluto the underworld, and Neptune the sea, and they kept the earth to share. Thus Neptune was more often found in Olympus than in his fabulous palace at the bottom of the ocean. Although his principal wife was Amphitrite, daughter of Ocean, the poets have described his numerous liaisons with goddesses and mortals, which is why he is described as the most fickle of the gods. To achieve his ends, he did not hesitate to metamorphose into a ram, a horse, a bird, a bull, a dolphin, or even a river.

Neptune ruled over the seas—the Mediterranean and the Black Sea— as well as the ocean that was supposed to surround the Earth. As described by Edith Hamilton in Mythology: when he traveled in his chariot on top of the golden waves, silence followed the noise of the waves and a peaceful serenity followed the passage of the wheels. He was a god who pacified; he calmed storms and floods, he came to the aid of ships run aground on reefs or sandbanks. Often his name is accompanied by the qualifier "stable." He controlled the island of Delos to protect the birth of Apollo. But conversely, Neptune could also cause terrible storms and make sailors and ships disappear. He was a fearsome god. He was considered the god of the raging seas rather than of calm waters, according to Louis Séchan and Pierre Lévêque. Some texts show that he could also unleash tornados and hurricanes on earth, a mixture of water and wind invading space and taking everything in their path. In fact, Neptune reigned over all the waters, from the primordial ocean where the gods themselves were born, to fresh waters, spring, streams, and rivers. Thus the Festivals of Neptune, the Neptunalia, were celebrated on July 23, during hot weather, when nature is at its thirstiest.

Finally, Neptune is the god of earthquakes, the quakes being linked, according to the ancients, to the storms of the seas on which the continents lay. He is the one who shakes the world, who lifts the earth and makes everything on its surface crash and crumble. Consistent with the water symbolism, he had the power to make things fertile. In his Critias, Plato describes Poseidon as the principal god of Atlantis, the legendary continent overwhelmed by the sea. He had the power "to make two springs of water gush forth from the ground, one hot, the other cold, and to make grow food-producing crops of all kinds, in abundance."

Edith Hamilton concludes her article by affirming that the trident is the lance with which Neptune can create and disperse currents at will. Each point of the trident seems to evoke one of the domains of Neptune’s empire: the sea, the rivers, and the earth.






Astrologers feel that the discovery of each of the three new planets—Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto—coincided with a group of events that could be considered to be a revolution on the political, social, moral, cultural, and technological levels, because of the profound and durable impression on the evolution of humanity. In fact, the period of Neptune’s discovery corresponded chronologically with the emergence of revolutionary movements that shook Europe, especially France (fall of Louis-Philippe and the proclamation of the Second Republic), but also Italy, Germany, Austria and Hungary, Russia, etc.

These movements were often inspired and led by middle-class intellectuals, among whom were poets, writers, philosophers, and artists, which is why these events were often described as "romantic revolutions." Moved by the misery of the workers that the industrial revolution had uprooted from the countryside, they denounced the exploitation of man by man, and dreamed of a society based on the abolition of classes and the equal sharing of riches. Thus in 1848 Karl Marx’s Communist Manifesto appeared, basis of a doctrine which would be important for nearly a century and a half. If the industrial revolution could be summed up in a picture, it might be that of smoke rising from a chimney: a chimney on a factory, a locomotive, or a steam engine.

The middle of the nineteenth century also corresponds with the exploration of the last unexplored regions, and the conquest of vast colonial empires by the European powers, especially France and England. Note that it was in 1848 that slavery was abolished in French dominions. Is it not strange that these vast territories, whose attractions drew so many of our ancestors overseas, were able to escape from their new masters within the space of a few years barely a century later?

How can we not think of Victoria’s accession to the throne in 1837, which began the long reign of the queen whose legendary strictness is a reflection of the prudishness and doubtful devotion which covered Europe and North America for almost half a century? How many sacrifices, renunciations, and frustrations in the name of a dogma often misapplied and stripped of meaning? For all that, the second part of the nineteenth century also corresponds with the emergence of an authentic mysticism, illustrated by Saint Theresa of Lisieux or Bernadette Soubirous, as well as the emergence of currents such as spiritism, theosophy, etc. We cannot, however, completely understand the spirit of the time if we do not appreciate the specter of tuberculosis: how many mystics died as consumptives, and how many consumptives became mystics? On a different note, a number of writers and poets tasted the delights of hashish, then consumed as a type of preserve, as witnessed by Baudelaire’s Les Paradis artificiels. Finally, in medicine, the 1840s correspond with the first surgical anesthesia: first with nitrous oxide (1843), then ether (1846) and chloroform (first general anesthesia in 1847).


What common factor links all these various facts? Essentially the search for the undifferentiated primordial state from which all creation sprung, including the gods themselves—we know today, that at the beginning the Earth was entirely covered by water and that little by little a single continent emerged, named Pangea (etymologically: the whole earth). In fact, whether it is a question of the abolition of the social classes, the equal sharing of riches, the exploration of faraway lands, a quest for the sacred or the invisible, we find this search for paradise lost (cf. the myth of Atlantis), for that golden age when there was no consciousness of being separated from the creator or other creatures.

Undoubtedly, this consciousness is at the beginning of all suffering, and in this we can see the idea of original psora. Drug use, especially that of cannabis, and generally any behavior that seeks to escape objective reality goes back to this fusional state—with God for some, with the rest of humanity, with the rest of the universe for others.

Therefore, it is first of all the experience of denial of self as a separate individual that Neptune symbolizes in astrology, with all the consequences that stem from this. On the psychic level, it is the main factor in intuition: it is as if the subject who is sensitive to this planet has the ability to see through the veil which separates individuals from each other. In fact, these people are always hypersensitive to the presence of others and to the atmosphere around them. This hypersensitivity may lead to clairvoyant or mystic states, always beyond the control of the subject. Often there is an attraction for "too good to be true" situations, having more to do with fantasy than with reality. Then comes the moment of disillusion and the reactivation of the first suffering and the bitter observation that paradise—or as close as we can come to it—is not of this world.

If Neptune symbolizes the sacred (and not strictly speaking the divine), it is easy to understand how it indicates the sacrifice, literally "that which makes sacred." The sacrifice is the process by which the self, or ego, seeks, often unconsciously, to be reabsorbed in primordial love and to disappear as a separate individual. In practice, we observe that behind any sacrificial behavior hides a guilt that is either related to a wrongdoing that is almost always imaginary, unconscious, or inherited from an ancestor—Adam and Eve were chased from paradise because they ate the forbidden fruit—or a fear of abandonment related to the absence, inability, or non-recognition by one of the parents.

It is easy to understand what led astrologers to give Neptune a special affinity for the Sign of Pisces ?. Last of the twelve signs of the zodiac, it symbolizes the invisible fluid from which everything came and into which everything will be reabsorbed at the time of the end. We cannot help to observe the many similarities which link this sign to Christianity in general, and Christ in particular: the one who was called ichtyos (fish in Greek) by the first Christians, who used to draw a fish in the sand as a sign of recognition. The Age of Pisces started two thousand years ago during this period with the entrance of the vernal point into the constellation of the same name.

To conclude, here are some of the ideas presented in the form of key words, designed to illustrate the planet’s symbolism as well as that of the sign. They will make it easier to understand the many paths that Neptune is likely to take to manifest itself in consciousness:

Ø      erosion of limits and differences, dissolution, fusion, communion, compassion, sharing

Ø      sacrifice, fault, sin, guilt, redemption, savior, salvation

Ø      appearance and disappearance (whether of people, objects, phenomena, sensations), ebb and flow, coming close and drawing away, currents

Ø      exile, deportation, abandonment, isolation, trial

Ø      faraway, enchanting, paradisiacal countries (like the islands in the Atlantic or the Pacific), or else dry, desolate lands (such as deserts); holy places

Ø      miracles, grace, ecstasy, bliss, the sacred, the wonderful, the supernatural

Ø      intuition, clairvoyance, mediumship

Ø      the ideal, inaccessible, or unrealizable character of a person or thing

Ø      adoration, secret, platonic, or sublimated love

Ø      illusion, mirage, trickery, treason, disillusion, deception, bitterness, disgust

Ø      hypocrisy, dishonesty, deceit, cheating, scandal

Ø      confusion, error, forgetfulness, loss of markers and identity, inebriation, folly, psychosis (in particular schizophrenia)

Ø      the ocean, the sea, salt, the spring, the stream, the river, fish, fishing

Ø      gases, smoke, vapor, fog, sailing

Ø      wine, alcohol, drugs, anesthetics

Ø      music, photography, diving, etc.


Let us now see to what extent and in what way the proving symptoms of Neptunium muriaticum are related to the values set out up to now.






1) The placebo question


Our first surprise on reading the proving notebooks was to note that not only did most of the people receiving placebo manifest symptoms, but also that these symptoms were similar to those experienced by the provers who received the active product. Admittedly, overall they manifested with less intensity and were less richly detailed, especially as regards the mental sphere. In addition, they appeared almost immediately after the doses were taken and had a tendency to disappear more quickly. However, the fact remains that the provers who received the placebo unquestionably expressed the proving symptoms of the remedy; consequently, a question arises concerning the transmission of information from a dose tube imbued with an active substance to another that does not contain the active substance.

In the absence of an answer, we will simply relate the facts: following a double error with packaging and shipping, the laboratory that manufactured the remedies placed the 120 doses in the same package, without separating the placebo from the active product. In addition, an error in the address on the package caused it to be sent back to the shipper before finally being sent to the recipient. Thus, the placebo doses and those containing the active product were in contact with one another for upwards of ten days. Aware of the error that had already been made, we did not try to store them separately before sending them onto the provers, which meant they were in contact with one another for another week.

However, in the interests of scientific rigor, we did not include in the following list the symptoms experienced by the provers who received placebo.


2) Notation of symptoms


The numbers between brackets at the end of each symptom indicate:

a)      the number of days, hours, and minutes since the prover took the first dose of the remedy (ex.: 03.22.35 = 3 days, 22 hours, and 35 minutes)

b)      the prover’s number (ex.: E5 = prover No.5)

c)      the potency used (ex.: 30 C = 30th Hahnemannian potency).

218. I am on the terrace of a café with Eléa (my daughter), Liliane (a friend) and X. Liliane decides to go buy some bread over the road, I go with her as I have decided to pay. Liliane chooses 3 different loaves and I choose one. The cashier can’t make the cash register work: he tells me the prices and I add it up as we go along. Then we leave the village in the car. I am driving. After a moment, Eléa asks me to let her out of the car in the countryside so she can take a walk. I agree and pick her up a little further along, in the car. After a while, she asks to do the same thing at the entrance to a village. I agree again and decide to pick her up at the exit. I bypass the village, and come back by the other side. I park and look everywhere for Eléa but I can’t find her. I realize that, not knowing the village, we weren’t able to give each other a landmark or a meeting place. I start to panic thinking about her panic, I ask people, no one has seen her. I see several little girls who look like her, but they are never her. I go into a store and tell my distress to the person with me (it is no longer Liliane, it is my grandmother!). I say I was stupid, that I will never find her again … I don’t know what to do, then all of a sudden think of going to the police …

I wake up. Emotionally, I feel like after a nightmare: a little physically anxious, a bit of a headache, queasy, scratchy throat. I write the dream down … I feel better, It is 4:00 a.m.

Flash: I buy myself a beautiful bag (150.00 F). Sentence in my head on waking: use one’s ability to serve to enter into a relationship with others and please them. [00.20.15, E5, 30 C]


219. I was in Switzerland with my husband and my daughter, and some friends who are potters. We left a village to go to Geneva by bicycle. It was fairly far. We had to cross mountains and countryside. We arrived in Geneva at lunchtime. The weather was nice. I said to myself that we had to eat and I remarked that I had forgotten my Swiss money at the house. Happily, my father was with us and he was able to help us out. We passed by the end of the lake, the two shores, etc. We did a half-turn and we stopped at a vendor selling early vegetables. He had magnificent melons, in fact, everything was beautiful (fruits, vegetables). Then we realized he was also a restaurateur. We chose fruits and vegetables, he cooked them and we ate them right there. I’ve never seen that. We started to choose and I remarked that my daughter wasn’t there. The others told me she had continued on. Worried, I ask them if she had seen that we had stopped. They claimed she had, and that she would come back, she couldn’t go very far. So I went back to choosing these magnificent fruits and vegetables. [10.00.00, E10, 12 C]


220. Again the feet in the water! I am on the edge of a river with my oldest daughter (7 years old). On the other side, there is a house lit up and to get to it you have to cross a bridge made of rubber rafts. My daughter wants to cross, but I don’t. Before I have time to react, she is already crossing the river. At that moment a band of armed men come out of the house (which is large and imposing) ready to do anything for their peace. They take my daughter and I am paralyzed, petrified. I am so afraid, I force myself to wake up. [21.00.00, E8, 12 C]


Danger, pursuit


221. I was with my sister in a hotel, on the seashore in a country with lots of sun. On the same level, but at the other end of the hallway, my husband Philippe’s parents were on vacation.

My sister was being followed, therefore so was I, by some James Bond type men. We had been running all night and we arrived around 7:00 a.m. My sister didn’t want to rest, or shower, but stayed on the lookout ready to run. I told her to shower so she could rest better (we both had our period).

I went to the bathroom, it was more of a cupboard like the toilets on airplanes with lots of compartments. I saw myself on the toilet, the blood etc., and all the time I was talking with my sister trying to reason with her. In the end she joined me in the shower. In the shower there was a window overlooking the street. We were very high in the building, lots of light. [03.00.00, E10, 12 C]


222. It was the first time I’d had a little nightmare: someone was pursuing me and my daughters, and this woman was trying to kill us with some kind of metal hooks. We had to use all our cunning to escape her and I think we succeeded. I think I knew the woman. [35.00.00, E18, 30 C]

Upwards, downwards


223. Dreamed of ascending and descending: I climb to the top of a mountain and then I go back down to a field. [03.XX.XX, E15, 7 C]


224. I had to go help at a market. I didn’t want to go but I went anyway. There was a kind of small métro (rapid rail transit) and I wasn’t able to get on it, so I ran behind. At one point, I had to go down a very steep staircase and I managed it, very surprised that I hadn’t had any vertigo: amazing! there were a lot of people. [14.00.00, E18, 30 C]

225. We are sharing a house with Catherine (a friend). She decides to clean the top of the kitchen cupboards. There are two, one on top of the other, the second is just balanced on top. They are very high and narrow. She climbs on the radiator. I come in then and ask her to get down as it isn’t solid. At that moment she falls, lands on her back and the top cupboard falls on her. I rush over, but she isn’t hurt. [06.00.00, E5, 30 C]


226. I find myself in a room and instinctively know that this room or this house is going to fall. Then everything falls and I protect myself under a big desk or a large wooden box. I am not afraid and I know nothing will happen to me. [07.00.00, E18, 30 C]


227. I dreamed that we wanted to redo the ceiling of the house, so I tried to touch the paint and the whole ceiling fell down. That bothered me a lot because we were having guests that night. [36.00.00, E18, 30 C]

Unstable equilibrium


228. High white ceilings, a room where a stepladder is needed to clean the windows, a long white and green ceiling. The windows had to be done from outside, but to do so you had to climb a wall, and from on top of the wall, with a handle, wash the windows. Very acrobatic. [18.XX.XX, E15, 7 C]


229. To continue on my way, I had to throw myself in a stream with very little water running countercurrent. The water was very cold, but it didn’t bother me, and that surprised me during my dream, usually I hate cold water. Then someone made me take a shortcut instead of going by the usual route over large plastic cubes that were not very stable (no danger). [02.00.00, E18, 30 C]

Water, sea, beach


230. I was with my 7 year old daughter, near a marsh. Water flowed through the valves, up to now everything was normal. We had to close the valves, but a young girl couldn’t do it and the water started flooding in.

The dream was unpleasant, without being scary. [19.00.00, E8, 12 C]


231. I spent the night in the water again tonight: I know that I had my feet in the water to my ankles and there was a question of hen’s eggs. [20.00.00, E8, 12 C]

Marvelous place


234. I am in a room with my daughters and my niece and I’m trying to get everyone in bed. I go out of my room and am in a hotel. As I go out, I meet my friends, two people I like a lot. We go for a ride. We are in a marvelous place in the mountains with a view of the sea. We come to a small village with wood cottages. In the street there are piles of fresh meat everywhere. It is the day when people slaughter their pigs, cows etc. There are kittens coming up to be petted, and there is a pig walking about with no skin. I am surprised, because the pig doesn’t seem to be suffering. Even when I wake up, I am still impressed by the beauty of the countryside and this village I dreamed about. [30.00.00, E18, 30 C]

237. There was greenery, a small garden, my sisters, the raising of a gate to come and visit me in my home, two people who came to my home. There was medicine in a letter box. At the end I found myself with a ring, a band, a diamond wedding band, simple, luminous, very pretty, like the make-up. Flashes of light were coming from the wedding band. [18.XX.XX, E15, 7 C]

238. Going up in an elevator to come down. In this one there were toilets that everyone could see in. I wanted to pee and I started to do so. I was passing blood and water and it embarrassed me a lot that others could see, so I tried to hide my face. I waited for everyone to go before I left. Then I went to buy chocolates. I had a bottle of champagne and a fur coat in my hand even though it wasn’t cold. My husband joined me in the store and we left together to take a plane, a very bizarre plane which only had two outside seats. We sat on these seats and the plane took off. It flew just above the ground and we had to hold on with our hands so as not to fall. Just before landing, Daniel fell in the water with all his things. The plane landed on a sheet of ice and Daniel was already arriving with his feet all wet. He then asked for help fishing out his things, but while waiting people wanted to give him warm things. Then they put grease on various parts of his body and they put his sex in the grease. [12.00.00, E18, 30 C]

Children, young girls, and adolescents


239. I am accompanying a group of teenagers to the beach. In the changing rooms, I start by losing some things and when I am in the water, night falls abruptly. Although the water is calm, I can’t get back to the beach and I can’t see anything any more. A young girl comes to reassure me and I touch bottom, I am back. [18.00.00, E8, 12 C]


240. I am with my family (husband and children) on the overhang of a house with a garden and I am looking at another family that is going to move into this house. Two young girls meet and throw their arms around each other (one in the house, the other getting out of the car). That is when my oldest daughter recognizes one of her friends and they decide to climb over the parapet and to go down the wall into the garden. I am afraid for her and at the same time I have confidence in her. I don’t move. [21.00.00, E8, 12 C]

Wedding, communion


241. I am going to a wedding (I don’t know whose) and I have forgotten an important meeting that I had that evening at the school (in real life). [06.00.00, E8, 12 C]


242. I am preparing my youngest sister’s wedding (who has already been married a year and a half ago and just had a baby): I have to find some tulle to make the little bags for the dragées. [57.00.00, E8, 12 C]


243. I had to go somewhere for work, style a week-end. It was fairly far. My husband was with me. We took my car. We traveled at night, already returning. My husband didn’t feel well. We had to find a restaurant that would still serve us. Finally, after several tries, I found a restaurant that would still take care of us. To thank them, my husband gave them a lot of money (he had to eat to feel better). Surprisingly he paid them in lira.

He also wanted to make me happy and we found ourselves in a very stylish clothing store. He placed a one meter long bank note on the table in front of the salesman, and told him to find me something nice. Out of curiosity I went up to look at the amount of money: 1 million lira. I started to look. I wanted to choose a dress or a jacket that would really make me happy, not the styles that the saleswoman was showing me (too conventional). I noticed a blue dress, a little pale, in lace with a transparent plastic raincoat that would look nice for a wedding and which cost 2 million lira. It wasn’t suitable, but it was very pretty.

I don’t know what I chose, I woke up before. [06.00.00, E10, 12 C]


244. I was at a friend’s house. There were a lot of people there (the family), because it was her twin girls’ communion. As I was just passing by, I was embarrassed because I didn’t have a gift for the girls. And then my friend introduced her twin boys (which she doesn’t really have) of the same age who were also having their communion. I told myself that I would have some gifts to give! [08.00.00, E10, 12 C]





245. Two groups from two different oriental philosophies give themselves a challenge (not violent) while the two master, very cheerful, confront each other over checkers. [03.00.00, E5, 30 C]


246. I am in a sect. The guru is dressed in white. I know most of the disciples. The temple looks like a little pigeon loft. There is no order, it’s anarchy and we’re talking about it among ourselves. The guru makes us do things that are innocent and childish (children’s song, etc.). I refuse to submit and, with an exaggerated, theatrical humility, I explain the basis of my thinking to him. He is confused, the others also. Then he takes up his train of thought and suddenly, everybody scatters because the temple is collapsing. I look up and see the roof framing give way.

I leave and exult over this farce. The atmosphere of this dream is very childish and gay. For once, I was able to stand up to a caricature of the "hierarchy."

In my dreams there is always a crowd, in this one also, but I achieved my aims, and in my usual dreams I am not able to do so. [01.00.00, E8, 12 C]


247. I was in a large group of pilgrims who were going into a cathedral, in the country. There were two other buildings beside the cathedral. I was in one of the two buildings. We had to go into the cathedral for the pilgrimage (go in, go around it, and leave). There was such a crowd that it was hard to move forward. Everyone was stuck to one another, going back into the other building after. There was Philippe (my husband) and my parents. They wanted to leave, but we had to wait for another friend named Sophia, but in the dream her name is Marie. I look in the two buildings to see if I can find her. There is also a large crowd. I look, I look, I call her … At the end I am shouting her name: Marie, Marie … I then go towards the cathedral and find her coming back. "I have been waiting for two hours," I tell her. She answers, "I know, I had people to see. Anyway, your father has a problem with money."

In the dream I was very calm. Even if I was shouting at the end, I wasn’t upset. [04.00.00, E10, 12 C]


248. I dreamt I saw a friend again, a very good friend, even though he didn’t seem happy to see me. But I was. It was someone important to me because he brought me to a spiritual reflection. [06.00.00, E18, 30 C]


Crowd, meeting


249. I am going with my family to my parents who have lent us their apartment. I am on the stairs and I have reached the 4th floor. There are a crowd of people I don’t know, sitting quietly with their baggage and provisions. They are waiting for someone to open up the apartment below for them. The atmosphere is calm and orderly. [15.00.00, E8, 12 C]


250. There were a lot of people, thousands of people in a hall. I don’t know what was going on. The only thing that I remember, is that they were all provers of the remedy. [01.00.00, E10, 12 C]


251. There were a lot of people at my house, potters (Annick, Sylviane ...). We were leaving to go on tour, an adventure tour. We found ourselves in a maze of highways, bridges, tunnels, métros. Everything was gray, a gray jungle.

After I was at home where Annick was spreading out some clothes she had washed by hand. I had lent her my room, but I needed a few odds and ends. I told her she could put her clothes outside. I had everything necessary, but she thought it was all right like that (in my room and it was also my bathroom).

We are on the beach. In a fringed travel bag I had (for my husband, my daughter, and myself), the passports and I don’t know what else. My husband wanted to go to the island opposite us. I thought it was a good idea. However, I see them go into the sea clothed, Jean-Claude, my first employer, in the lead. The trick was to swim there. My travel bag was in my way, but I swam holding it out of the water. It was a hell of a long way. I had thought we would go by boat.

When we arrived, it was crazy! there were pathways in the forests, torrents, it was very pretty. But the people! With each step, we had to watch where we put our feet. People were sitting or lying, picnicking everywhere. My husband took the lead to take us to a pretty spot. At one point we had to cross a little river. I asked my husband to help me, to take a bag. He takes it, throws it in the water, then gets in the water to cross over. I was furious! I took so much trouble coming to the island so nothing would get wet and he just threw it in the river! I politely point this out to him. We arrived at the pretty spot on the river’s edge, and set up our picnic. Who was beside us? Some friends with their children. We kissed one another, I said it’s a small world. [14.00.00, E10, 12 C]

Father, savior


252. Nightmare: we were leaving on an airplane trip with friends, but I don’t know who. The plane had no roof, a propeller in the front and an other in the rear. We sat on benches. The pilot was someone who had recently sold us a car. When I looked back we were on water, and when I looked forward we were on a plane. I looked back, the girls started to shout and when I turned around, the pilot had a weapon pointed at us. Then, in a house, the pilot threatened to hit us with a stick. He left, my father arrived, and we were saved. [02.00.00, E2, 12 C


253. I was in front of a restaurant and I saw two men I had known long ago. They wanted to ask me something, but I don’t know what they wanted. Then they hurt me. I didn’t want to tell my husband. However the next day, I had to go to this place again with my husband and when I saw the two men, I told Daniel what had happened the day before. He went in to telephone but he didn’t come out. I waited before asking a big man to help me. I found Daniel hurt and the man took care of him. While he was examining his injuries, I saw them as if on a spotted cat. We left there having decided to put an end to these attacks and I woke up. [03.22.35, E18, 30 C]

256. I went to Venice. With me were my husband, my partner, a potter, and an old friend from Switzerland (she studied with me at the ceramics school). We went to Venice, as a group of potter friends were there. But we didn’t want to run into them.

We had the address of a hotel. Once there, it was a rotten hotel, moreover, the city was flooded. We went in without being seen, to look, to possibly find another address (in secret) and finally we called someone from reception. There was only one free room left. The person decided we had to share it. [08.00.00, E10, 12 C]

In my dreams at the beginning of the proving, I saw people I had not seen for years, but now I see people I know now. I saw a lot of people again tonight: the more it goes on, the more I see people I have met recently. [27.00.00, E18, 30 C]

262. I was in Japan with a Japanese woman who seemed to be my manager. It must have been summer because it was beautiful, hot, a lot of light from the sun and I was barefoot in flip-flops.

We were in the home of an old lady who must have been someone important and respected. She was dressed in tones of indigo blue and what struck me most, were her shoes (socks?). They were indigo with a beige pattern, a kind of fabric around the foot, the style was a strap around the big toe. I said to myself that I would like to take these shoes home if I could find them.

I don’t know why we went to this woman’s house, but on leaving, I forgot my flip-flops. I told my manager who wished me well, because after leaving, we no longer had the right to go back. I returned like a thief, and passed the "trial" without being discovered.

I found myself on the Xth floor of a big store with my manager to talk with someone about I don’t know what, and just like that was asked if there was something I would like. So I mentioned the shoes. A saleswoman came back with four different pairs, but not what I was looking for. So with a lot of tact, I described what I wanted and was shown two pairs, but they still weren’t right. So I looked at the size, it was a 36, too small. But I was told it was the largest size. So it was a good way to get out of an awkward situation. While waiting, my manager finished what had to be done and we left. [17.00.00, E10, 12 C]


263. I was in a foreign country, Japan, I think, with my parents and my sister, and friends of my parents. We had to take the plane to go back. It was a panic to leave. There was always someone who wasn’t ready. We were late, but as our watches had been put ahead by one hour, we continued to argue. Once at the airport, I was the one who couldn’t find my plane ticket or my passport. Finally I found … [28.00.00, E10, 12 C]


264. I had a large new 500 cc motorcycle, I had just gotten it. I was working in Golfe-Juan at a beauty parlor. A friend came to borrow it from me when I got to work, so in the evening, when I finished working, I wouldn’t have it to go home, which didn’t bother my friend.

Double, twins


267. Bastien’s mother (a child from the classroom) takes me home by car and shows me a child’s car seat that she has just bought. It is a double seat, which seats a small child and a larger one side by side, using only one fixation point on the back seat. Eureka! It’s what I am looking for in real life, especially because you can put 2 seats like this on the seat and have four children (she will soon be leaving on vacation with 4 children).

Neptunium’s picture evokes the upward and downward movement of a great wave or of a cyclone that lifts up everything in its wake, then lets it drop to the ground. On the physical level the provers felt borne by an unusual energy that brought them a sensation of fluidity, ease, well-being, and self-mastery, without any excitation and quite similar to a state of grace, as if they could transcend their physical limits for a while. A prover reported that she literally flew during an acrobatics session. This state of plenitude brought about a greater physical and intellectual activity in the daytime, resulting in tiredness at the end of the day and in the evening, at first without change of mood. Then the tiredness intensified progressively over about two weeks as the energy weakened.


The same pattern was observed on the mental level, as some provers experienced a period of strong exaltation of mood expressed by elation, laughter, singing, as if they had reached a height that put them beyond the reach of adversity. A prover felt a real elation, even though she had serious worries about her husband’s health. The notion of elevation can be found again in the dreams (the top of a ladder, of a shelf, of a building, of a mountain, walking with stilts, flying in a little airplane) and is related to an intense light (cf. the clearer and more luminous vision). However, the euphoria was mixed with sensations of drunkenness, or of having taken drugs. Mental confusion and instability spread (cf. precarious balance in dreams, trembling sensations in neck and legs) and revealed the illusive and artificial nature of the state of consciousness the provers experienced (cf. the bogus spiritual master, the make-up, the wig, or the veil in front of eyes). Then comes the return to reality, which can happen smoothly—some provers reported that they have felt more patient and calm since the proving—or can involve sadness and irritability, as if paradise had been lost (cf. the wonderful places in dreams). The collapse of the roof and the ceiling may illustrate the fall that follows the loss of illusions.

On the psychological level, numerous aspects of the remedy refer to the notion of childishness. Particularly in the dreams, the subject shows a lack of discernment by putting himself into hazardous situations, in which only the intervention of a third party allows a happy outcome, as if he were a child waiting for his father to come to save him. From this point of view, the many dreams involving children can be interpreted as projections of the self into childhood, with the heedless attitude towards danger and the expectation of providential help that characterize this period of life.

Neptunium seems to produce a loss at the sensorial level (veiled vision, stopped ears and nose, lack of sexual desire) as well as at the intellectual level (lapses of memory, confusion) in favor of a more or less illusive spiritual pursuit (sect, religious gathering in dreams), since it only permits a glimpse of light. The large crowds in the dreams could be related to the desire to lose one’s own identity by merging into the crowd, just as salt dissolves in sea water (cf. salty taste). Finally, as foreshadowed by the very name of the remedy, water is actually present throughout the proving (sea, river, marsh, sensation of water in ear, thirst for fresh water, etc.).


Neptunium muriaticum will be particularly suitable for persons who evade reality and take refuge in illusion, for instance for those who are continually enthusiastic over vague or groundless projects and leave things to other people, rather than assuming their own responsibilities.


As was the case with Plutonium, Neptunium seems to be a faithful homeopathic reflection of the mythological god and of the astrological symbol.
