So is chi only found in Leeds, or does it occur in Bradford too?
You Know Who, that is not the subject of this thread.
And I answered your question in that other thread, you just don't understand my answer. So try thinking about it till you get it.
Depends, where was wushurichard from?

You have no right to ask me to "go away".
Probably the same planet as TJL.

My thoughts exactly.I read that flawed text when it was first published in the eighties. It led me down a blind alley and I started to look for something that didn't exist.Thirty years ago there was no internet and communication on these matters was quite poor but these days there is no excuse for blindly following this type of nonsense.
If anyone wants to get to the bottom of this they should look at the endocrine system and compare the points of concentration in Taoist mediation with the location of these glands.Most of the major points of concentration are the gonads,adrenals,pineal,pituitary,thymus and thyroid glands.Concentrating for long periods on these glands might possibly cause an increase in the release of certain hormones. This would make sense if someone was trying to get an increase in performance or strength as some athletes take testosterone supplements to increase performance.Of course the release of these hormones will have other effects such as a higher state of arousal,or if reduced,calmer stress free state.The Russians developed a method of stress control that involved manipulating these glands.I practiced it for quite while and the results were far better than Taoist mediation as it had been developed by scientists and had a clear methodology.
So... what is it, RH? I can use my mind to control sensations in my body but I know what is happening to cause those sensations. Is that chi, or is chi something else? If it's something else, how does it differ from those sensations?
If anyone is interested in this Russian method they can read about it here.
It was developed as part of their Cold War remote viewing program.Whilst I am highly skeptical about remote viewing this stress control method was one of the more useful things that came out of the research program.
This thread is going nowhere good and has served its purpose, so is now locked.
