Common Sense 1; Chi 0

I just lost a few brain cells listening to a Youtube Sifu explain how chi is the result of the “radiation of the cerebrospinal fluid” and the “static electricity generated by moving the fascia and storing it in the organs.” George Lucas would be proud to have such an imagination.

For a very good look at how it is that “chi masters” sell this idea to their students, and how it is that those students continue to believe, check out the link below.

  1. Wow. This is great.

    I’m trying to sort myself out about chi. I like to have my beliefs based in some sort of science, and I’m OK with just believing something that’s rational (I’ve never personally seen an atom, but it makes sense that they exist because chemistry works, you know?).

    Thanks for the readings!
