This "state of mind" discussion reminds me of the superhuman strength a frantic mother can muster to lift a car so that she can free her pinned-down and trapped son.

Now I don't believe in chi or anything, but I do believe their take on chi is a slight metaphysical interpretation of concrete nervous structures and relations within the human body. For example, they say they can feel your palm/hand and know where "distress" is in your body. Some organs can be in distress without conscious pain registering, though there may be other painless nerve signals being sent that manifest themselves in small almost imperceptible clenching of muscles in the hand. Thousands of years ago Chinese monks were able to figure out that even in a normal person, by not having any sex, a male can have a slight increase in his intellectual function. When a monkish order has a few millennium to sit around and think about crap, you'd be surprised what revelations they can come up with =P

Just because someone believes in something does not make that something sacrosanct. If you believe in that stuff and keep it to yourself, well, that's fine - you're allowed life choices, naive as they may be. But if you express it in a public arena, especially on a science forum, expect it to be treated with the derision it deserves.

"It should not be a taboo subject, but frankly it often is in scientific circles," said Francis S. Collins, who directs the National Human Genome Research Institute and who speaks freely about his Christian faith..........Dr. Collins, who is working on a book about his religious faith, also believes that people should not have to keep religious beliefs and scientific theories strictly separate......................But he said he believed that some scientists were simply unwilling to confront the big questions religion tried to answer. "You will never understand what it means to be a human being through naturalistic observation," he said. "You won't understand why you are here and what the meaning is. Science has no power to address these questions - and are they not the most important questions we ask ourselves?"
I totally disagree with the video.I mean how could it be ?well it's not following the laws of physics.Perhaps,we haven't discovered 'physics' fully yet! Science haven't discovered much about it.Perhaps,someday we could finally prove supernatural phenomenon.I wonder how philosophy would explain this?L-Kira.
