"These works are a first in the world, they unequivocally demonstrated that without touching a substance, the human body can affect the substance and change its structure... They are new scientific discoveries and the prelude to a scientific revolution." -- Dr. Tsien Hsue-shen, Chairman of the Chinese Association of Scientists, formerly Goddard Professor of Rocket Science at the California Institute of Technology
