The Quantum Science of Chi

My friend, Kim Gould of Love Your Design, posted a video on her blog of a Professor of Theoretical Physics who began using Tai Chi to improve his health. He is now dedicated to defining aspects of Chi so the rigors of scientific exploration can be applied to its study and how it plays a role in distance healing. This is not to say that Chi can fully be described and understood by science, only that it can be partially defined in a way that allows quantifiable data to be collected about it. This is akin to the relationship science has with electricity. We can say with great precision what electricity does. We can generate it at will and control how it operates. But, to date, no one can say exactly what electricity is. We still only have working theories to describe it but that does not keep us from working with it in useful ways.

Light-Emitting Cells Determine Food Quality and Bodily Health

With the recent peanut butter plant salmonella outbreak and FDA practices in question, many folks are turning to a diet of organically grown raw foods.

As early as the 1920s, Russian embryologist, Alexander Gurwitsch found that cells from plants emit a weak glow that he believed promoted cell growth. His research was picked up in the 1970s by German physicist Fritz-Albert Popp, who applied principles from quantum physics to the study. Discover how Popp used bio-photons, which radiate light from the cells of both plants and animals, as indicators of bodily health and the quality of the food we eat.
