I suspect the IP guys are just going to explain (again) that IP is not a spiritual practice but a different/more aware/more informed way of using your physical body.
I just say, "So how does it work? What's the physics behind it?", Mary. And from my viewpoint that's what everyone should ask when they're watching or doing something that looks or feels odd. If you figure out how it works physically you can work on it and add it to the things you can do... i.e., you can "steal this technique". If you just 'believe' and 'feel the energy', I don't think you ever go very far.
