does the water have any memory ?
The first time someone (with a probable interest in omeopathy) talked about water memory was many years ago in an article on "Nature".
A lot of experiments, discussions, theories came out of that article.
Brief conclusion: no, it doesn't have any memory.

I agree with Geezer's idea.

I've removed the links from your signature, since they were advertisements - Mod

What more do you think we should know about water that we don't already?

what kind of memory are ewe referring to ?......does it have RAM ? short term ? long term ?...access memory ?
LOL!

No. I think it's flash memory: as soon as you flash light to look at it, it's already deleted  ;)

The next generation of computers will have water storage units instead of hard-drives. It's clearly a very stable form of storage, since homeopathy treatments sit on the shelf for years and 'still work'. :P

But the major advantage is this: if you drink the water unit, you will have in your mind all the information previously stored in the unit! (Or, instead, you would have instantaneously deleted all the compromising informations there... ;))

My "bruiser" didn't show me all frames in Sheepy's strip cartoon. For those of you with a similar problem...

What does memory in this question mean? Do you mean like storing data like silicon chips?

what I meant   the memory is the  kind of  arrangement of water molecules depending on the external conditions like the light , the pressure, different sound waves....

Uh-oh! We might have a slight translation problem here.

Yes, water molecules can take on many different forms depending on external conditions.

For example, I don't think there is any limit to the number of different snow crystals that can form, and I think, each one is unique.

 dear Myrian,

I put down a link to the documentary film What the bleeep ...

is easy to know more just google Masaru Emoto putting it is the maximum exponent in the deep investigation of this matter

After seeing his claims and what he does with water freezing and sound, he is associating sounds of sorts, then relates it to a close proximity to the frost.
Since water reacts to sound. Different vibrations propagate simultaneously through the moisture of water as it is freezing, captures the waveform reaction at that moment to the water moisture.
I think that is why snow crystals are unique, because natural sounds are not homogenious but unique in time and space of proximity, as the moisture freezes to make the crystal of the flake... 

Human interpretation of water having memory is extrapulated mostly from his entrepreneur tactics to sell his books.
But the results are still pretty.
