No they do not defy physical laws.   But you know what a 2 or 3 ele
beam is a very good antenna. 

In fact a half wave dipole is a really good antenna. 

If you don't think so - then put one up sometime at 
a height near to that of your tribander/yagi etc. and do
some A/B tests.  Half wave dipoles work quite well.
