Editorial Reviews

Review

"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

About the Author

Professor Lu was an accomplished experimental nuclear physicist. He graduated from the Southwest United University (a war time joint univeristy of Beijing, Tsinghua and other top universities in China) in physics in 1946. Except the time he was receiving advanced training in the Soviet Union from 1957-1959, he conducted defense-related research work in China from 1950 to 1979. He was the director of Fast Neutron Laboratory of the Institute of Nuclear Physics, then the director for the Nuclear Physics Measurement and Radioactive Chemistry Analysis Group at the Institute of Nuclear Testing. He received the third prize of the National Invention Award in 1978, the first prize of the National Science Advancement Award in 1988, and the second prize of the National Invention Award in 1989.

In 1979, he became a Physics Professor at Trsinghua University and later the founding director of the Institute of Modern Biology and Biomedical Engineering. In 1987, he became a Physics Professor at the Institute of High Energy Physics, Chinese Academy of Sciences.

From the early 1980's until he passed away in 1992, Prof. Lu conducted scientific qigong research in his spare time and published over 60 qigong research papers in scentific journals and conference proceedings. Prof. Lu was a trail blazer and pioneer in the field of qigong research.

The scientific experiments introduced in this book opens up new doors for great scientific breakthroughs in the 21st century. The legends of people with great abilities in Taoist and Buddhist mystism, as well as phenomenon investigated by Carl Jung, is made understandable through the exploralation of the incredible power of qi. Chinese medicinal theory about meridians, paranormal qigong abilities, and the healing power of qigong, together can shed new light on human abilities and prospects for the future of the humanity. Dr. Yan Xin's experiments indicate that our consciousness carry tremendous energy and information, and that qi energy can change DNA and RNA -- an implication that human beings can completely redesign their life toward better health, longevity and even immortality. This is a book any visionary scientists and social scientists must read. Great minds will eventually be able to see the implications and set to work on unearthing the treasure of qigong for the common good.

This book shows how amazing human potential abilities can be. What Dr. Yan and Prof. Lu Zuyin has done is unprecedented. For those who are interested to learn more about special bodily function and Qigong research, and health benefits, this is the book to read.

5 of 6 people found the following review helpful By Anthony D. Statler, LMT on December 10, 2002
As a Qigong practitioner I have studied a great deal. I was even fortunate enough to travel to China and take part in a collaborative exchange with the China Academy of Traditional Chinese Medicine. So, I knew before reading this book that Qigong practice has a massive ability to increase human potential on all levels. However, I must say that the information contained in this book BLEW ME AWAY!!!
The experiments themselves are kind of dry reading but the implications they have on the potential for human growth are staggering. And the scientists who conducted these experiments are not people who are easily swayed by whimsical tales and flights of fancy, they are hard core scientists and physicists who are among the top the Chinese have to offer.
While this book is not a how to book for Qigong, I believe all Qigong practitioners should read it. My own potential has increased dramatically as a result of this book, simply because it presented me with information which allowed me to expand my own formally self limited realm of possibility.
