Long-term dynamic structural memory in water: can it exist?

There is no experimental evidence to support the hypothesis that water retains a memory of mechanical, magnetic and electromagnetic influences it has been exposed to and of substances it has dissolved. After its solutes have been fully removed by repeated dilutions, the water does not remember of having contained them or of the external physical influences exerted upon it. There is no arguable reason that water should have a molecular information matrix capable of serving as a long-term memory.
