Hmm...the literal meaning of Chi in Chinese means "air" or "breath". It would be quite easy to prove that air exists and then walk away with the lovely prize money.
12/03/2003 1:03pm, #26yeah okay..you cannot disprove this existence of an abstract notion on the bases of a lack of observiable confirming instances.
It has been said that Chi can do everything from levitation, to bestowing a man with a fist that can cause cancer with a strike. Jim Lacy claims his former master could move liquid in his stomach from over a foot away and that he has seen people ignite paper with their Chi.
All bullshiit of course.
The only thing I've seen Chi do that has ever impressed me was when some little Chinese baztard tied a rope to his twig and berries and used them to hoist like 100lbs or something. And the LOOK of this guy was straight out there in BIZZARRO land. Other than THAT I dont see what the fuss over Chi is all about. An invisible force that can never be tested or measured by any scientific means but is asked to be cultivated even though nobody can tell you what it is when you ask them.
And once in a while some guy like you comes along and tries to get me swallow this line of bullshiit, like a Catholic Priest taking the hand of some alter boy and trying to preach to him. I know, I know, all those guys I mentioned.....they don't have the REAL Chi power right? Only some little old dirty homeless man on the streets of Honk Kong who wipes his azz with his sleeve has it.
The problem is that 98% of the world has taken Hollywood's image and definition of Chi into their heads. Listen, I know there are things that the human body can do, and I DO trust that Chi exists(I happen to think that David Blaine has extraordinary Chi), but allow me to finnish by saying there is NO WAY YOU COULD EVER USE CHI TO DEFEND YOURSELF IN ANY WAY, SHAPE OR FORM. Telling anyone differently is fraud."All warfare is based on deception." -Sun Tzu, ca. 400BC
Reverse punch Kiaii!!!
