What is the true nature of reality? Let's first remember that our current understanding of reality is not reality itself.
What we understand now in our modern world is for a large part a natural product of the scientific developments which have been unfolding over hundreds of years in the West. As we continue to evolve so does our understanding. Different modalities whether it is Quantum physics or Ren Xue are leading us towards a new level of reality...
To move forward, towards a greater understanding of life and the nature of reality, does require an open mind.
In quantum physics, a science which belongs to our Western paradigm a quantum is a. the smallest quantity of some physical property such as energy, that a system can possess. b. a particle with such a unit of energy.
In traditional Chinese culture, Qi is...
The most basic building block of everything in the whole universe. At the most fundamental level, that out of which everything is made.
QI IS EVERYWHERE IN EVERYTHING IN DIFFERENT FORMS AT ONCE.
Qi exists in all of the space in the universe in a physical and non-physical form. Although Qi is often loosely and incompletely translated as energy, it is a total existence made of energy, material and information. Qi is constantly in the process of change and development with the information determining how the energy & material transform.
The transformation of Qi is the most fundamental of all changes in the universe.
In traditional Chinese culture, Qi has been observed, understood and used for thousands of years. (Qi is also known as gi in Korean culture, ki in Japanese culture and Prana in Indian culture.)
When looking at human life from a Qi perspective, understanding Qi and its role is essential for life consists of Qi : the physical body is made of Qi and so are our thoughts, our emotions and what underlies them: our consciousness. And not only is life is a totality of all of the above, with our consciousness, we can affect the changes of Qi in one way or another.
Thinking of our life as a totality can help us understand how difficult it is to be healthy and well if we only look at the health and wellbeing of the physical part of our life: the body. If our model of life is based on a partial understanding of life, how can we truly address problems which might have non physical roots?
