Hey I just found this clip of chi projection. It seems to be pretty legit. I'm just wondering what your thoughts are on this. Personally I find it a great accomplishment but directing chi like that takes a good amount of focus and plus that initial concentration and breathing, makes it hard in my eyes to see this in application.

HAHAHAHAHAHLOLOLOL!!!111!one!!11!eleven!!11

You're kidding right? I mean, you've got to be because this has to be one of the most pathetic chi demonstrations I've ever seen. It's just a twisting piece of paper on a string and some guy moving his hand in motion with it.

Even if there is some outside force affecting it, notice how you only see one side of the paper. For all you know there's a magnetic strip on the other side and some guy under the table with a refrigerator magnet. Maybe they used some really fine wire that doesn't show up easily in the low quality video to make it move.

Use your head. This is dumb and the possible explanations are endless.

You don't even need magnets or wires for this. If even one of the sides of that clear container was open, then the breeze from the hand's movement would be enough to explain it's movement.

However, chi doesn't work that way. Chi/Ki is a method of understanding the workings of the body and your bloodstream. Through knowing yourself, you are able to get more from your own body. It has nothing to do with using telekinesis to harm your opponent, pyschic powers to demoralize them, or fireballs to kill them.

However, if they were legit, I would suggest that they look into the Million Dollar Paranormal Challenge from the Randy Educational Foundation. If they don't want the million dollars, then the institute will donate the money to a charity of their choice. Note, this prize has existed for 42 years and there have been no claimants that have even passed preliminary testing.

I doubt there is an open side. But as it is almost impossible to have a tight fitting on such a container on any surface, there is enough gap space a the bottom (which is not evident to see) that air currents from the hand move under the glass providing enough movement to change direction.

Just an old charlatan's trick.

I said it seems pretty legit, didnt mean I didnt have my own doubts about it. I mean that no touch Dim mak knock out guy seemed legit too until he started to do it to people other than his own students.

David Copperfield made the Statue of Liberty disappear. I can't do that, but I know a few card tricks.

Those things are about as real as chi projection.

the funny thing is, lets say he WAS able to break the laws of physics and twirl a gum wrapper under glass...what exactly is the useful application of that?

yea what I thought too, because if he was in battle he wouldnt have those few moments to take some deep breaths and to focus where his chi would go

And if he were in battle with small strips of paper, he could make them wave around until they got all dizzy.

I would show you a demo clip of real chi use but my master obi-won kenobi says I need to work on my humility.
