An attempt at describing "Energy"
All oriental medicine is rooted in the ancient concept of Yin and Yang, most often represented by two rain drop, or fish, shapes that form a circle.
These two opposing and cyclic forces are regulated by the flow of "Chi" (Ki, Qi, Prana) or vital energy
"Qi produces the human body just as water becomes ice. As water freezes into ice, so qi coagulates to form the human body. When ice melts, it becomes water. When a person dies, he or she becomes spirit (shen) again. It is called spirit, just as melted ice changes its name to water."
Wang Chong, AD 27-97
Chi & Energy
Chi (also spelled Qi) translates roughly to "vital energy" in Chinese. It refers to the "life force" that flows through all plants, animals and human beings. "Chi" is that "bio-electricity" or "energy" in the body which makes us "alive." It is also that life giving energy that permeates our universe.
Energy & Oxygen
Oxygen produces energy in the body. It is a source of chi. It is truly the "elixir of life."
Human Energy and Power
The energy intake of humans in the form of food is often expressed in dietary Calories (kilocalories) with the average U.S. diet being in the neighborhood of 2000 Calories. The daily intake of food energy can be expressed in other units
INTEGRATING ORIENTAL MEDICINE WITH WESTERN MEDICINE
Reiki energy is holistic claiming to heal the body physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually.
"Ki is the basic unit of the universe. It is the infinite gathering of infinitely small particles. Everything is ultimately composed of Ki. If you pursue this concept to the depth of human consciousness, you will understand the universal mind which governs all creation, loving and protecting all life......Everything originates from the Ki of the universe"
Secrets are hidden in the most obvious places. Don't look so hard, start at the beginning, and take your time. Ki cannot be apprehended through the use of the intellect, it must be directly experienced. Like gravity, Ki lacks formal existence. It simply is. To say one does not believe in Ki unless it can be explained is child like foolishness
The ancients in China came to the conclusion thousands of years ago that Qi (Life Force Vital Energy) is the essence of all things on earth, and that the whole universe is but movement or mutation of Qi, and so was it too with the human body
In a highrise building, all of the water which is used on the upper floors must be lifted to those heights. It must be a major expenditure of energy! It is instructive to compare the energy used to lift the water to that necessary to heat the water in a hot water tank.
Ki is not only the radiation of the Soul, it is also the glue that holds the body and Spirit in tandem for the process of human experience
Aikido emphasizes the development of the conscious soul: "Vitalize, animate, and nourish the conscious aspect of your soul, and you will naturally become more spiritual."
Aikido is...a personal experience of "Energy" with a transformative power where each person practices how to have the positive qualities of ki (energy).
Hydrogen and oxygen can be combined in a fuel cell to produce electrical energy. A fuel cell uses a chemical reaction to provide an external voltage, as does a battery, but differs from a battery in that the fuel is continually supplied in the form of hydrogen and oxygen gas
Gasoline Energy Comparison
If gasoline costs $ per U.S. gallon, what would other energy resources cost at their rates?
One of the four fundamental forces, the electromagnetic force manifests itself through the forces between charges (Coulomb's Law) and the magnetic force, both of which are summarized in the Lorentz force law. Fundamentally, both magnetic and electric forces are manifestations of an exchange force involving the exchange of photons . The quantum approach to the electromagnetic force is called quantum electrodynamics or QED. The electromagnetic force is a force of infinite range which obeys the inverse square law, and is of the same form as the gravity force.
THE CLASSICAL VACUUM
It is not empty. Even when all matter and heat radiation have been removed from a region of space, the vacuum of classical physics remains filled with a distinctive pattern of electromagnetic fields
Dark energy dominates the universe
The only explanation, according to Chaboyer and Krauss, for an accelerating universe is that the energy content of a vacuum is non-zero with a negative pressure, in other words, dark energy.
The next frontier for cosmologists
The recent announcement of the discovery of a distant supernova - the catastrophic explosion of an ancient star, caught in the act by the Hubble Space Telescope - has provided strong evidence to confirm one of the most unexpected scientific discoveries in recent years. The expansion of the universe is accelerating, and the cause is thought to be due to a new form of energy with unusual anti-gravitational properties called "dark energy."
Zero Point Energy The Mother of All Tachyons
There is an energy source far more powerful than tachyon; it is in fact the source of all tachyons. It is considered that all atomic particles are born in space, the so-called zero point of the universe. Atomic physicists consider the zero point of the vacuum as being an infinite potential energy source. In the beginning was the void, and in the void was the zero point.
