Re: Ki, Chi, and "Energy"

Didn't say it had anythng to do with other energies, just that it's in the same spectrum,
What "spectrum" is that? It's not the electromagnetic spectrum or it would be easy to measure. What you're saying is equivalent to giving credence to the Humours Theory from ancient times, talking about measuring them, and so on. It's a waste of time.

The Humours Theory was simply a wrong guess/explanation at how things worked. So is the ki/qi theory. Not that the phenomena they describe are non-existent; it's just that the way of explanation was a wrong guess that didn't pan out (you don't see scientists in Japan or China explaining things via "ki" do you?). The idea that ki is somehow measurable is a waste of time.

but then this begs the questions: Can you create KI? Can you destroy it? or just channel (transfer) it? This is the definition of energy and ALL energies are in the Energy Spectrum, including kinetic and momentum( btw, gravity is electro-magnetic energy, the same energy that keeps us rotating and revolving around the Sun and keeps our atoms and molecules together). Do you deny it exists?
That was a classic example of setting up a strawman argument. I won't even get into your assertion that gravity is electro-magnetic energy.
