„Lili Kolisko – Research-stipend“

02.09.1889 (Vienna) – 20.11.1976 (Gloucester). 

Lili Kolisko founded the experimental natural-scientific research in the field of anthroposophic medicine. Her most important assignment Rudolf Steiner, who worked together with her, gave the title “Physiological and physical verification of the effectiveness of minimal  entities" (1923). (1) 

In this paper she proved that decimal-potencies of metal salts produced by Hahnemann´s method are effective beyond the Avogadro-constant, and that this effectiveness shows, in the process of continuous dilution, successively several maxima and minima, that is a kind of rhythm. 

“Miss Kolisko had realized the instructions I gave in this direction with maximum conscientiousness through a long period of time… and we succeded to split the mere material in such a way, that the real spiritual comes to light in mere matter.” (2)
