Science and the Problem with Chi (via) - an excerpt from the book Chi Gong: The Ancient Chinese Way to Health by Paul Dong.
"Chi theory is an ontology, in which it is pointless to declare one’s belief or disbelief prior to understanding".
"The differences between a living human being and a corpse are that the former has an EM field and movement (together called “bioenergy”) and neutral chemical acidity, whereas the latter lacks an EM field, does not move, and is highly acidic. Three possible implied explanations for the changes between the living and the dead can be stated in the form of propositions: (1) absence of bioenergy is an effect of altered biochemistry (the Western scientific proposition; (2) altered biochemistry and exhaustion of bioenergy are effects of a third factor; (3) altered biochemistry is an effect of exhaustion of bioenergy (the Chinese scientific proposition)."
Dr Yang's Chi bioelectricity conection - review of the book "The Root of Chinese Qigong: Secrets of Health, Longevity, & Enlightenment" by Dr. Yang Jwing-Ming, which contains a section on the scientific interpretation of Chi.
Chi is not energy - which argues that "if you cultivate chi, you do not have more energy, you just become more efficient at using the energy you do have, and so you appear (even to yourself) more energetic."
