    Since no one else's experience counts, who are these people who you keep talking about? What have you experienced that was so convincing? How come you can't do anything yourself after 23 years?

    Yes, more reading. For the last time, go to the PEOPLE that train it.
    This is getting worse the the 52 thread.

    Who should we check out, KF? Rattle off some guys with Chi powers, so we can go to them.
    There's no choice but to confront you, to engage you, to erase you. I've gone to great lengths to expand my threshold of pain. I will use my mistakes against you. There's no other choice.

    I do. Read my profile. See that taijutsu? One of my sempai is a reikei whateverthey'recalled. Another student who used to train with us was an acupuncturist, and they both have extensive Chinese internal arts training as well. Hell, even the soke of the art I train in buys into the mystical stuff. I don't. Call it a cultural thing, call it whatever, but I've found that the most rational course is to discount anything mystic and unexplainable by science as 100% bunk.

    If we only use 10% of our brain, then how come Terry Shaivo (sp?) was a vegetable? She had like 50% of her brain left or something.

    Obviously if her chi were properly developed she would not have slipped into that state, because she could have taught herself how to use the other 50% of her brain.

    Yay! Ad hoc hypotheses are fun!

    Who cares whether or not we only use 10% of our brains ?

    If it turned out that it was somehow possible to make much more effective use of your brain than normal you still wouldn't be able to generate an energy beam which knocked people over.

    Humans use only 10% of their brains.
    It originated with 1950's motivational speakers -- "You will unleash the FULL potential of your brain!"
    The brain is not a single functioning object, where it serves one purpose. It is composed of parts that form the whole. Sight has one lobe, hearing, etc..
    While prodigies have been shown to have larger lobes dependant on the type of prodidy they are, it does not mean the average person uses 10%.

    Regarding chi and the photo of Ku Yu Chueng. I have no doubt he did what the photo shows. None. Ever heard of biomechanics?
    I have seen multiple people who have done similar breaks up to 6-7 bricks. They had one thing in common......internal martial art. However, they were not wannabes. And they did not attempt to pass it off as mystical.
