CHI IS IHFRA - RED ENERGY
According to Peking's Third Co-operative study on "Chi-Kung" ,the "Chi Energy" is an infra red radiation signal- When the doctor puts his palm six inches from the thermography detector, the fluorescent screen showed only one bright spot corresponding to the palm of his hand. After fifteen minutes of meditation practice, and projecting the "Chi Energy" through his palm, the number of bright spots on the palmar image increases. After eighteen minutes, four finger tips also showed bright spots. The bright spots registered corresponds to the infra- red signals picked up by a microwave amplifier.
CHI IS PRAHA
The Editor believes that the Chi Energy reported from China is the same as the Prana described in Yoga, the Life-Force described in Western mystic schools, as well as the numerous loosely used terms: ethereal energy, life-energies, life-currents, cosmic energy and the energies in the subtle body.
MEDITATION AND BILE PRODUCTION
More recently, an exciting clinical experiment that no one ever tried in United States was reportedly done in China. Reuter News reported from Peking on July 2, 1980 that a physiologist did an experiment on his own body to show that Chi Kung (Chinese Meditation) can stimulate the human body to secrete more bile. The China News Agency said that the thirty-eight years old Mr.Kar-Lun Wong had practised Chi Kung for 17 years, After an abdominal surgery, he purposely left a drainage tube in his bile duct. When he was resting, the bile production was 20 c.c. per hour, but when he practised Chi Kung, the bile production increased to 54 c.c. per hour. He therefore concluded that Chi Kung can help improve digestion, and also explains why Chinese Meditation can give its practitioners vibrant health and longevity.
