I have been going through modern science a lot, I even did some amateur science dissertation stuff on diet, reading many science journals, when we first got attacked by vegan shills on /fit/ I still read them from time to time. And I have been reading some of the epidemiology things as well. Recently I have been reading "thinking fast, thinking slow" which has a huge list of biases that humans have, up to date, and something just clicked on me, I have seen the limits of science, and how well it can probe and test. And seeing the positive effects of meditation on me myself, even to additional skills (I managed to reach a higher level of awareness and actually gain a real life skill that others dont have, namely body language awareness, read books by Joe Navarro), it just dawned on me that it is not impossible for this to be true.
Tho by accident. I dont know how far all of this goes, I am met with skepticism, but I do have some feeling that it may be quite true. And that it may be even quite true and not exclude modern science to add to that.
So as far as the mass meditation goes, I dont know man, maybe it could work. Maybe this chi is connected to other forms of energies still? Would be an interesting idea. Have you seen how each planet generates energy, actual current, and then moves through the universe? Confirmed by science. Crazy stuff. And those Kirillian photographs.
