I don't have a 'definition of my own'. But for me personally the bit about IMA's involving 'spiritual' aspects (and therefore by definition EMA's not doing so) is complete cobblers. And to say that IMA's have a 'mental' aspect, and again the implication is that EMA's don't have one, is bollocks. As for Qi, well everyone has a completely different take on what it measn anyway. For me personally there is nothing mysterious about it. Certainly nothing that can't be explained scientifically. So in a nutshell, I suppose I do think that the definition that you quoted is a load of rubbish really. Which isn't your fault, you are just quoting something you found on t'interwebz I guess.
