Dilution differences - question

I'm just curious, what would be the difference of someone taking a remedy at different potencies if they mathematically come out to the same dilution.

For example,
6x = 1 / 10^6 and
3C = 1 / 100^3.

I realise that the first begins with a dilution of 1 in ten parts, whereas the second begins with 1 in a hundred parts. But what difference or effects does this have to the remedy/patient?

Mathematically the dilution is same. The difference is in the number of times they are succussed to reach that stage.

6x gets succussed 6 times, whereas 3 c get succussed only 3 times. The more the number of succussions in preparing the remedy, the more potent it is.

So, 6X is more potent than 3c.

Then why did the master decided to opt for larger dilution bases when he could raise potency effectively through successive stages of dilutions!! Indians don't like extreme positions so Indian homeopaths stick to C potency which is midway between X and LM!!

Larger dilution bases are supposed to work in a gentler manner with less aggravations than c potencies.

Rising the potency will not always give the desired results. Sometimes, the master himself gave lower potencies, when higher potencies failed.

Choosing a similimum itself is a difficult task. Add to it the task of choosing potency..and then the posology..the repetition schedule.

It is impossible to arrive at a consensus among homeopaths. Everyone is guided by the training they receive, the gurus they follow, and their understanding of the homeopathic philosophy.

So, sticking to c potencies is one way of reducing the complexity a homeopath faces. However, good doctors with successful practice use the whole spectrum from x to LM. Even in India.
