Baduanjin qigong

Baduanjin qigong
The Baduanjin qigong(八段錦) is one of the most common forms of Chinese qigong used as exercise.[1] Variously translated as Eight Pieces of Brocade, Eight-Section Brocade, Eight Silken Movements and others, the name of the form generally refers to how the eight individual movements of the form characterize and impart a silken quality (like that of a piece of brocade) to the body and its energy. The Baduanjin is primarily designated as a form of medical qigong, meant to improve health.[2] This is in contrast to religious or martial forms of qigong. However, this categorization does not preclude the form's use by martial artists as a supplementary exercise, and this practice is frequent.[2] History[edit] This exercise is mentioned in several encyclopedias originating from the Song Dynasty. Nineteenth century sources attribute the style to semi-legendary Chinese folk hero General Yue Fei,[4] and describe it as being created as a form of exercise for his soldiers.

pineal gland and fluoride The body in traditional Chinese medicine The model of the body in traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) has the following elements: Every diagnosis is a "Pattern of disharmony" that affects one or more organs, such as "Spleen Qi Deficiency" or "Liver Fire Blazing" or "Invasion of the Stomach by Cold", and every treatment is centered on correcting the disharmony. The traditional Chinese model is concerned with function. Thus, the TCM Spleen is not a specific piece of flesh, but an aspect of function related to transformation and transportation within the body, and of the mental functions of thinking and studying. Chinese Medicine and The Model of the Body is founded on the balance of the five elements: Earth, Metal, Water, Wood, and Fire. The elements are infinitely linked, consuming and influencing each other. Each element corresponds to different organs in the body. The organs act as representatives of the qualities of different elements, which impact the physical and mental body in respective ways. Wood[edit] Fire[edit] Earth[edit]

EXO-200 narrows its search for Majorana neutrinos The first two years of data from the Enriched Xenon Observatory-200 (EXO-200) have been released by an international collaboration of physicists. The experiment looks for evidence of a process known as "neutrinoless double beta decay", in a sample of isotopically enriched xenon-136. While the EXO-200 collaboration has not yet found any statistically significant evidence for the decay process, they have put an improved lower limit on the half-life of the decay. They have also shown that they can efficiently supress background noise from cosmic rays and radioactive decays. Observing any signs of neutrinoless double beta decay would show that neutrinos are "Majorana fermions" (particles that are their own antiparticles). This would constitute discovering a new class of particles that lie beyond the Standard Model of particle physics and would be a major breakthrough in modern physics. Double trouble No neutrino? The research is described in Nature.

Pineal gland calcification and defective sense of direction. C R Bayliss, N L Bishop, R C Fowler Calcification of the pineal gland is shown to be closely related to defective sense of direction. In a tricentre prospective study of 750 patients lateral skull radiographs showed that 394 had calcified pineal glands. Sense of direction was assessed by subjective questioning and objective testing and the results noted on a scale of 0-10 (where 10 equals perfect sense of direction). The average score for the 394 patients with pineal gland calcification was 3.7 (range 0-8), whereas the 356 patients without pineal gland calcification had an average score of 7.6 (range 2-10). This difference was highly significant (p less than 0.01).

Etymology Les quatre tantras de la médecine traditionnelle tibétaine Représentation de Bhaisajyaguru, « maître guérisseur » ou Bouddha de médecine. Tibet, XIIème siècle © Lucas Ancientart / flickr-cc La spiritualité au cœur de la médecine tibétaine « Dans le futur, les médecins seront tellement occupés qu’ils n’auront plus de temps pour une pratique spirituelle ». L’une des originalités de la médecine tibétaine traditionnelle réside dans le fait qu’« elle contient une philosophie, une cosmologie et un système d’anatomie subtiles et complets associés à des pratiques spirituelles qui lui sont propres, bien qu’elle soit généralement pratiquée en accompagnement avec la philosophie bouddhiste », rappelle l’Académie internationale pour la médecine traditionnelle tibétaine. Le tantra fondamental, le tantra explicatif, le tantra des instructions, et le tantra final Yuthok Yonten Gonpo le jeune a contribué à l’élaboration des théories générales de la médecine tibétaine.

Chakras Chakras Chakra means Wheel in Sanskrit. Consciousness and energy move from one frequency to another in spiraling fashion. The body has energy centers that look like spinning wheels and are called Chakras. They allow energy to flow from one part of the body to another. As with all things in our reality, they are linked to sound, light and color. To heal, is to bring the chakras into alignment and balance then understand the nature of creation and your purpose in it. It's all in motion in the alchemy of time.

Qigong Qigong, qi gong, chi kung, or chi gung (simplified Chinese: 气功; traditional Chinese: 氣功; pinyin: qìgōng; Wade–Giles: chi gong; literally: "Life Energy Cultivation") is type of spiritual practice intended to "align" body, breath, and mind for health, meditation, and martial arts training. With roots in Chinese medicine, philosophy, and martial arts, qigong is traditionally viewed as a practice to cultivate and balance qi (chi) or what has been translated as "life energy".[1] According to Daoist, Buddhist, and Confucian philosophy, respectively, qigong allows access to higher realms of awareness, awakens one's "true nature", and helps develop human potential.[2] Qigong practice typically involves moving meditation, coordinating slow flowing movement, deep rhythmic breathing, and calm meditative state of mind. Over the centuries, a diverse spectrum of qigong forms developed in different segments of Chinese society. Etymology[edit] Main articles: Qi and Gongfu History and origins[edit]

The Pineal Gland (The Third Eye), Chakras and Solfeggio Frequencies | Riding effortlessly on a large green turtle Please watch on full screen with a peaceful, open mind. Whether we are aware of it or not, we are all telepathic and are constantly emitting subtle vibrations. If we are sensitive, we can become more aware of the vibrations given off by people, nature and the universe in general. The pineal gland is responsible for the excretion of many beneficial chemicals that, if uninhibited, would lead to a better state of being and a greater understanding and connection with universal truths. The pineal gland is a small endocrine gland, the size of a grain of rice, in the vertebrate brain, its main function is to produce melatonin, a hormone that affects the modulation of wake/ sleep patterns (circadian rhythms or body your clock) and seasonal functions.

Human Eye Sometimes Sees the Unseeable Sometimes it’s hard to see the light. Especially if it lies outside the visible spectrum, like x-rays or ultraviolet radiation. But if you long to see the unseeable, you might be interested to hear that under certain conditions people can catch a glimpse of usually invisible infrared light. That’s according to a study in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. Our eyes are sensitive to elementary particles called photons that have sufficient energy to excite light-sensitive receptor proteins in our retinas. But recently researchers in a laser lab noticed that they sometimes saw flashes of light while working with devices that emitted brief infrared pulses. One application of the finding is that it could give doctors a new tool to diagnose diseases of the retina. —Karen Hopkin [The above text is a transcript of this podcast.]

glossary of graph theory Graph theory is a growing area in mathematical research, and has a large specialized vocabulary. Some authors use the same word with different meanings. Some authors use different words to mean the same thing. Basics[edit] In this pseudograph the blue edges are loops and the red edges are multiple edges of multiplicity 2 and 3. An edge (a set of two elements) is drawn as a line connecting two vertices, called endpoints or end vertices or endvertices. The size of a graph is the number of its edges, i.e. Graphs whose edges or vertices have names or labels are known as labeled, those without as unlabeled. (Graph labeling usually refers to the assignment of labels (usually natural numbers, usually distinct) to the edges and vertices of a graph, subject to certain rules depending on the situation. A labeled simple graph with vertex set V = {1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6} and edge set E = {{1,2}, {1,5}, {2,3}, {2,5}, {3,4}, {4,5}, {4,6}}. and is a non-edge in a graph whenever is not an edge in . from vertices.
