In political system there is a term used named Autocracy, that means autocratic government where a ruler of a government with unlimited power,one who does things without considering the wishes of others . In urdu this ruler is called " Khud Mukhtar, Mutliq ul Inan ," who is not answerable to anybody.So the founder of the Homoeopathy Dr.Samuel HAHNEMANN in his paragraph -9 ( afforism-9) has narrated Vital force an
Autocracy , and automatic in its functions .. Hahnemann writes as uner :-
"In healthy condition of man , the spiritual vital force (Autocracy ) , the dynamis that animstes the material body ( organism ) , rules with unbounded sway, and retains all parts of the organism in admirable , harmonious , vital operation, as regards both sensations and functions , so that our indwelling ,reason-gifted mind can freely employ this living , healthy instrument for the higher purpose of our existence."
So we can say that as as a autocratic ruler is sovereign in his decisions and he is not answerable to anybody , in our body Vital force is also autocraticin his functions. When it decides that this work will be done he do it without considering its results on body . Vital force is automatic in its functions. In western medicines( Allopathy) auto in diseases case a word auto-immune is used where our defence mechanism automatically work . But Hahnamann is much and more advanced to them.
Autocratic ruler is also unwise .Like this Vital Force is also an unwise force. If he decides that any substance in body may be filtered, he does it without considering its result that this function may resulted in damaging to body.Therefore to bring him on a right way we use Homoeo remedies according to the symptoms. According to Dr.Hahnemann vital force is automatic in his functions.He says in paragraph -11 as under;-
"When a person falls ill, it is only this spiritual,self acting ( automatic) viatal force, everywhere present in his organism ,this is primarily deranged by the dynamic influence upon it of a morbific agent inimical to life;it is only the vital principal,deranged to such an abnormal state,that can furnish the organism with its disagreeable sensations, and incline it to the irregular processes which we call disease;for, as a power invisible in itself, and only cognized by its effects on the organism, its ,orbid derangement only makes itself known by the manifestation of disease in the sensations and functions of those parts of the organismexposed to senses of the observer and physician , that is, by morbid symptoms, and in no other way can it make itself known."
Dynamics means Physical power and forces., potentials , influence on others ( In urdu asar- aafrini )
"What is Dynamic influence, - dynamic power? Our earth , by virtue of a hidden invisible energy, carries the moon around her in 28 days and several hours , and the moon alternately , in definite fixed hours raises our northern seas to flood tide and agin correspondingly lowers them to ebb. Apparently this takes takes place not through material agencies,not through mechanical contrivances , as are used for products of human labor; and so we see numourous other events about us as results of the actions of one substance on other substance without being able to recognize a sensible connection between cause and effect .Only the cultured ,practised in comparison and deduction , can form for himself a kinfd of supra-sensual idea sufficient to keep all that is material or mechanical in his thoughts from such concepts . He calls such effects Dynamic,Virtual , that is, such results from absolute , specific, pure energy and action of the one substance upon the other substance.
For instance , the Dynamic effect of the sick-making influences upon the healthy man,as well as the Dynamic energy of the medicines upon the principle of life in the restoration of health is nothong else than infection and so not in any way material , not in any way machenical. Just as the energy of a magnet attracting a piece of iron or steel is not not material, not mechanical.One sees the piece of iron is attracted by one pole of the magnet,but how it is done is not seen . The invisible energy of the magnet does not require mechanical( material) auxiliary means , hook or lever , to attract of the iron . The magnet draws to itself and this acts upon the piece of iron or steel needle by means of a purely immaterial , invisible,conceptual,inherent energy , that is , Dynamic Ally , and communicates to the steel needle the magnetic energy equally invisibly( Dynamicaly). In a similar way ,the effects of medicines upon living man is to be judged."
