Scientists try to study Chi

Postby SecretAgentMan on February 1st, 2015, 9:25 pm

For those that don't know, Chi is the Chinese word for life force energy. It goes by many names by different cultures around the world. This is a youtube video where some scientists and National Geographic try to observe and measure the focused Chi of a trained Qi Gong martial artist, a Shaolin Warrior named Wong. Wong participates in two scientifically observed and measured demonstrations that would under normal circumstances cause great harm to a human being. Wong channels his energy through his practiced methods to protect himself in seemingly impossible ways. The video is only 10 minutes, but here are some highlights just in case.

In the video before the first demonstration one of the scientists says, "As a scientist, I can't measure Chi. It's something that's not measurable. It's something that I cannot quantify."

Later in the video clip after the second demonstration the narrator says, "Even having the most advanced tools, there's currently no way to measure Chi. Whatever Shaolin Warrior Wong's technique, there is no denying it's results. For now the hidden strength of this defense will remain a mystery."

Here is the video link:

The reason I am posting this is to raise awareness about Chi or life force energy and why you don't hear about it from scientists. They have no way of measuring it and therefore cannot verify that it exists. That does not mean it does not exist though. The abilities demonstrated in this video are pretty phenomenal, as are the abilities of anyone who master's an art. This Chi he demonstrates is the very same Chi that acupuncturists work with. We all have it. Most of us are unaware of it, but because we have it we can experience it if we let ourselves. It is a vital part of who we are and how our health manifests itself whether we are acknowledge it or not. Perhaps consider seriously looking within to find your own Chi and working with it on a daily basis to restore vitality and health in this area. Thanks for reading/watching.

The excerpt above is just as relevant for this video. Again, I believe it demonstrates the participatory nature of our energy and that it cannot be abused if we don't let it. If it is one thing we learn from observing nature it is that everything is part of a system of balance. Each part of the system can influence the others but no one part is directly in control of the others. Just because an influence can be averted, does not mean the source of the influence is non-existent.
