I don't have a preconception that everything everyone experiences and talks about is junk. I think the vast majority of people are really experiencing what they say they are because I believe qi is a real physical phenomenon that is easily accessable. I have learned a physical theory of qi that so far explains all of the things people feel. I am interested to see if that holds true for a wider sample of people, especially those outside of the method I practice. I have argued with people who claim authority but whose understanding appears to be hollow- i.e. they repeat the traditional Chinese metaphorical or allegorical direction pointers but appear not to have a concrete understanding of what they are talking about. This is my only issue and I am not out to denigrate or discredit anyone with a sincere theory of qi, even if I disagree with it.
Perhaps I miss read you. Although my canto is only conversational, I personally find the chinese language refreshingly direct. No past future tense, no account for how many etc.
To me that kinda still sounds abit strange. Like saying it in reverse: " Chinese have a hard time with western medicine and science because of their lack of depth of understanding of the english language...See, It kinda sound wrong when you say it that way. It is true that even in China there is a problem with improper hei gong practice. According to the government, the main reason is self instruction through the thousands of manuals there are. Over 5000 diferent interpretations of the methods. Daunting at best.I'm sorry I misunderstood your post.
