Interesting post

I participate in forums so that I can expand my view on Qigong and other subjects. I found this one particularly interesting and think I should post it here just so that I will not lose it over time:

Hello Bill,

One of my favorite ideas regarding the nature of the field (of Being) is from the perspective of quantum mechanics.

It may be manifest in a non-local sense, disembodied and extended, as a wave function (wuji) , or as an entity/ particle (taiji) - localized in space-time, with defined properties (i.e., position, momentum, etc.), the moment one "opens ones' eyes" or makes a test.

With regard to your second query, I do not know of any formal research. As you may know, people have used collective meditation (prayer) to influence the minds of others. To me, it remains an open question. Does the Ocean feel the rain? Perhaps the Sky sees everything, and remembers.

However, there are speculations that those who are gifted may use the Schumann field or continuum for activities (e.g., communications, remote/distance viewing, etc.) that are puzzling to the rational and bounded cognitive processes we live by.

As an example, you think of somebody you knew, with whom you have not spoken nor seen for a long time. Then they call, show up, or otherwise contact you, and say they too were thinking about you. What was that all about?

What about those times, when the air between us appears to get "thick"? What is the physical mechanism or agency responsible for the change in our perceptions of our environment?

Finally, I wonder if other animals are also coupled to the Schumann field and sensitive to its rhythms.

So many questions, so little to say... ;.)

Qi

I posted this on a forum:-




Qi is the basic building block of everything in the universe including life and our human consciousness. Seen in this light oxygen is strictly not the 'Qi' that qigong/taiji practitioners are working on. Oxygen is needed by our body for the physical life process of releasing the energy from the food we ate. Qigong/taiji enhances this process. Consider this:

Physical exercise - You work hard physically to stretch every part of your body and in the process increase your breathing rate as well as heart rate which consequently causes more blood/oxygen to be delivered to your cells.

Qigong/taiji - You turn your mind inward, becomes conscious of your body, conscious of your dantian as breath you take unites with Qi and permeates your entire body. You feel totally relaxed: your breathing rate as well as heart rate slows down. All muscles relaxed and blood vessels dilate (the opposite of what happens in physical exercise) but with each pump of the heart more oxygen is delivered to your cells through the dilated blood vessels and the relaxed muscles are better able to absorb the oxygen delivered to it (Qigong/taiji enhancing life process). As your consciousness penetrates deeper you even become aware of an open/close of your entire being wherein you become aware of Qi exchange taking place between your body and nature.

Comes a time when you can feel the Qi of everything around you: the Qi of this bush feels different from the Qi of this tree as you gently sweep your hand over them. When you are conscious of everything as Qi you are approaching the realisation of the Oneness that many of us dearly wish to experience.

Do not be impatient... enjoy every minute of your journey. :-)
