Homeopathy and the Elements
Gallium is a new remedy.
The name has been derived from Gallia, France, because it was discovered by a Frenchman called Francois Lecoq in 1875. The Latin name for ‘coq’ or cockerel is Gallus gallus, which could have been another reason for calling this newly discovered metal Gallium.
The metal is soft, silvery white with a blue sheen. It has a relatively low melting point (29,8C) and a high boiling point (> 2000 C), which gives it the longest liquid phase of all elements. It is used in thermometers because it expands on being heated. It is also used in various alloys to lower the overall melting point. It is a semiconductor used in electronics and solar cells. It also gets used as a catalyst in organic chemistry.

Essence: stubbornly holding on to your own abilities.
Stubborn in their work
They tend to stick to the well known routines and stubbornly refuse to give them up. They have been treading the well worn path, the path has eroded into a hollow road with steep sides an now they can’t get out anymore. They are unable to see any new possibilities because the old patterns are too deeply engraved. Their stubbornness makes it very difficult for them to listen to advice, let alone to follow that advice. They always know better, even against their own judgment. The communication has been broken, they won’t listen and they aren’t being heard anymore.
They realise that their old patterns no longer give the best results. Their techniques are outmoded and they can see that others are doing much better. It is as if their own pupils have overtaken them and are threatening to demote them. The old civil servant can’t keep up with the new techniques and feels threatened by the younger generation.
Enemies are undermining the work
Their position is being undermined by the newcomers. They do what they can to hold on to their position but everything is changing and it hurts.
Disbelief in their own abilities
They feel that it is impossible for them to change, to learn the new techniques and improve their performance. They no longer believe in themselves. They feel they have always worked at maximum capacity and that is all they have to offer.
Falling back on old routines
They give up trying to develop themselves and merely hang on to the old patterns. But others are obviously doing better using the new techniques. So the threat that others will overtake them and force them out of a job is constantly hanging over them. That is why they tend to retreat to their own fort, closed off from the rest of the world and all its innovations. It is the theme of the tactical retreat: they proclaim that everything is going fine, but have to admit that reality tells them differently.
Nostalgia for the old crafts
Another escape is trying to portray the old ways as being much better than the new. They develop a very nostalgic attitude. This could be likened to the mentality of Gallia, i.e. France, where the people are very keen to do things their own way. They stubbornly want to remain independent and when something threatens to go wrong they retreat into their own camp. They like to go along with the European Community, but when things go too far they insist on doing it their won way. They stubbornly stick to their own traditions, their wine is still the best!

DD: Iron series, Stage 13, Clematis.
DD Zincum: are just managing to hold on, even if they have to work overtime. They do get obstructed by they can still get on with their work. Gallium feels that the area in which he can operate successfully is gradually being taken away from him. All there is left for him is partial success.
