Chi Energy

2 years, 4 months ago

Has anyone seen this and if so what do you think about it…I haven’t read up on this yet but would love to hear any opinions. Does anyone know of the meditation techniques they are referencing?

@ddub21, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JTTSXx1ks0I is a pretty wicked video as well.

I think that the meditation they are talking about is qi gong (spelling?)

@xyver, “Dumbass, has to wreck good steel, can’t impale himself on dull spears for a shit, and then, fuck up of all fuck ups, even with super human effort, he can’t drill his own fucking head. I was routing for him on that one, cuz he’s useless everywhere else. He should try again, or let somebody else help. Go for it dude! Time well spent!” – my favorite youtube comment

“Well, if that impressed you wait until you seem pull a quarter out of your ear.” – runner-up

@ddub21,

“its pretty amazing stuff im curious as to why science doesnt look into this more”

That’s a good question – why science doesn’t look into it more and its worth to think about it.

What’s the main thing about modern science? I’m talking about that mainstream “professors from the University of [enter random name] discovered that 78% of the human brain is water” kind of science, shown regularly in the medias. So, what’s the main thing about it? Obviously they want to “educate” us, show us how they got to a certain conclusion so that we can believe in the “truth”, just because it’s logical and makes sense. Yeah, they’ve done a pretty good job on keeping people from actually thinking about stuff. Just turn on Discovery channel and you get to know about so many interesting things, and with details about why it’s like that. Perfect!

Anyway, this Chi stuff is really interesting too, but the thing is – it is dangerous. Since they are not talking about it, means that they don’t want you to know about it. Why? Another good question.

Just my opinion on this. I think that the Chi can be mastered by anyone, given time and willpower, and that is why science doesn’t really want to reveal anything about it, except for some vague displays of mystic healers from the Indonesian rainforests who seem to be “born with it”.

Everyone is born with the Chi. That’s the life force, the prana, the energy, call it whatever. We all have it, in a way – we are it. We use it all the time, even for just moving our bodies, or just being. Some of us can feel it inside our bodies, some of us can move it to different limbs, and obviously, some of us can do really amazing stuff with it. I think it’s a gradual process to get there, and first would be to start feeling it. Meditation is the way, at least for me.

@gosho, That is an interesting take on science, and you are so right about being taught scientifically the whys and hows. We do not HAVE to ever think of an answer or “discover by immersion”.

Chi energy is something I don’t understand too much either. And I have it. Hmm.. Its funny how we can’t utilize something, no matter how prevalent it is or how it may be right in our faces, until we have a thought about it and understand it experientially and mentally.

Chi is quite simple, it’s just energy, almost the same we use to walk about the place which circulates our body. We do use it every day but we don’t usually control it and use it to maximum potential. Chi is almost like a booster button to usual energy, having a similar effect as adrenaline, only more powerful. The men in those videos, anyone can do with the practice and knowledge they have.

@bigred, I agree, it’s no mystery. It’s not trickery or magic either though, it’s control. Meditation helps find this energy if you know what to look for in a meditative stance as it moves through the various Chakras and Tai chi/ Taijiquan helps stimulate this movement.

There isn’t a huge amount of research for it in the Western society but the Dalai Lama (as far as I know), is talking and working with western scientist and researchers.

First of all, I think chi is one of the most incredible things in life. I have only had a brief taste of it, and so I have pursued it (with not much success). I took beginners tai chi classes and asked one of the instructors about chi energy, and he just said it is a mythical concept that doesn’t actually exist and I shouldn’t look to into it. I was so disappointed, but continued pursuing it by my own means.

I don’t know a whole lot about it, but I personally feel it exists and has immense benefits for those who can harness and control it well.
