    Just because one wants scientific proof does not make them an atheist by default.

    I'm not going to hijack another thread with this debate. I'll try to answer in PM. But in short, what Scott said, but I'll try to explain why.

    Not even close! You don't understand what I understand apparently so you cannot understand how it can appear I hold more than one apparently conflicting belief!

    I'll give you a hint though, I don't backpedal, I change perspective!

    Think about it!

    Good choice, but unfortunately with this late craze of Brazilian influence all the bushes are being wiped out......

    We have a shared reality as well. Our world view makes up our perception of that reality but doesn't necessarily see the truth of the shared reality.

    The world was real before I got here and it will be real when I've gone.
    As an individual, I am quite clear that I am not the only thing that matters in the world and I think the whole idea of "create your own reality through perception" etc moves away from intrinsic inter-connectedness and the more we go for new age ask the universe for money and things BS that is so popular these days is taking away from all the great stuff that mutual understanding of the shared reality brings us.

    As for the Higgs Boson. They have found it, it is real and it is what gives things mass.
    they have confirmed it's existence and function with 99.95% certainty I believe.

    Diving into the mystical without grasping the actual is folly in my opinion. I would always point people towards applied physics in context to self, fitness, qi gong, kung fu tricks etc long before I advised them of some mysticism that can't be demonstrated forthwith.
    Kung Fu is good for you.

    There is a huge difference here, the Higgs Boson does none of the actions attributed to qi AND there are no scientific studies that confirm the existence of qi or it qualities.....yet!

    the last word in your post makes me very happy. At least you admit its there. words like almost or not yet is OK with me. You can catch up with my understanding when your proof comes in.

    There's no proof of Qi because no one has a clear idea of what they are trying to prove! lol

    Qi is literally "breath" and all it becomes through the trans-formative process within the crucible that is a living thing. Hence transformed qi such as the energy you use to do your chores after eating.

    The breath you take one after each and the life force that supports, which is you. this is Qi in action.

    So, should scientists rather try to fully understand the quality of air and breathing and how that works mechanically and is defined as Qi and the process of taking it in and expelling it when stagnant.
    Kung Fu is good for you.
