It depend on the field but usually in biology it migth be a phenomenon to explain why homeopathy works.

We discussed something like this before in the following thread
https://www.physicsforums.com/showthread.php?t=11705"

The claim is that molecular interaction isn't a direct physical contact interaction as it is so commonly thought of, but instead that it is a 'spooky action at a distance' via EM waves. Each molecule produces its own particular frequency signature, and biological mechanisms run according to these signatures being produced by the proteins/DNA/RNA molecules present at any given time.

The other implication of their studies, is that water holds a memory of this EM signature, and water which has disolved a particular protein or whatever gets imprinted with this signature. If the solution is then diluted to the nth degree, so that no molecules could be left within the solution, the water should still hold the activity of the molecule that was once present in it. Yes, this is exactly what Homeopathy has always claimed to be the case.

No, none of this is 'accetped' by the scientific community, but that is not a reason to dismiss it.
