    hard to explain, and i am not really qualified to do so.

    but..

    a taoist immortal is a person who subscribes to a regimen of qigong,martial arts,meditation,herbal medicine and such for the purpose of longevity and spiritual development.

    the even say one of them lived to be 256 yrs. old.

    i have a friend who meet Kwan Saihung when he was about seventy years old. he said he looked maybe forty. my friend said that Kwan let him put his hand on his chest and he said the he 'enlarged' his heart, whatever the **** that means. my friend was very impressed by whatever it was Kwan did.

    this guy was/is a taoist monk. oh, i heard his is totally celibate, never had sex.

    there is a crazy book out about him. i dont believe half of it. very entertaining. some of it is probably true though.

    not sure exactly what the deal is with him. unique individual to be sure.

    peace.

    there have been some cases of sudden death from a blow to the heart. we went over a case in pathology class. it's called commotio cordis. it's believed to be kind of like a concussion to the heart that disturbs its electrical signals and sends it into a fatal arrhyhmia. however, it is usually associated with tragic stories about kids that get hit in the chest with baseballs, though our case was about a guy who got hit in the chest with a baseball bat. i doubt any blow could detach your aorta, it's quite a thick-walled vessel, but maybe that's where the idea comes from?

    a blow to the temple can cause an epidural hematoma (bleeding from artery on meninges), which can rapidly lead to coma and death due to pressure on the brain.

    a blow from front to back (as seen in car accidents) would tend to cause a subdural hematoma, which bleeds more slowly due to the bleed being venous rather than arterial.

    i haven't come across anything specific about blows to the base of the skull. maybe a spinal column fracture or brainstem injury is meant?

    people sometimes die after boxing matches from brain bleeds or concussions.

    if anything here sounds retarded to some medical personnel, i'm only in my first year! and if you think i'm a dork, you are right!

    the blow to the chest-death is very rare. It works cuz it messes up the rhythm of the heart. Its VEEEERY rare, but happens. wasn't one of hte kungfoolss stories about this? a karateka died cuz of that?

    Another time i heard this was on discovery channel. This kid got hit in the chest w/ a slow ball and died (nooo i didn't get this story mixed up w/ jonny Q or whatver ti was called)

    in my old mcdojo, my instructor claimed he had a friend who can break a car apart w/ his bear hands. then after that, he went even further by tearing a house down.


    I never asked for the name...but I think his friend was called Ryu and it happened on bonus stage...<img src=icon_smile_tongue.gif border=0 align=middle>

    Jenfucius, yes im sorry, you are a dork.

    Im in 4th year of Medicine, and i don't brag about it with technical and medical stuff...

    If you talk scientific, you can't speak about faiths or religion. Remember they're seperated.

    Sorry about the dork thing, but you sounded like "Oh look at me, i want to be a doctor".
    Beleive me, no one cares... i should know.

    I don't beleive the dim muk. How can you teach someoen w/o showing it? plain stupid. why not do it on a rat or cow for demo if killing humans are not illegal. these internal kungfu guys keep coming up w/ excuses and excuses.

    And dim muk cna't exist. If it does exist, as a secret, ppl woudl know by now. A nature of a secret is to spread. nothing can be held a secret, especially if its so powerful like nuclear bombs or the theoretical dim muk.
