  1. Wearing metals

    Thank you for all the replies!
  2. Wearing metals

    Are there metals that would negatively affect your energy? I heard plastic fabrics in clothing damper your qi. If I wore chainmaille would certain metals affect certain organs positively or negatively? I couldn't find much information on this. Commonly used metals include aluminum, stainless steel, copper, bronze and brass. I'm trying to learn the european 4-1 weave, I'm getting stuck right as it gets good.
  3. Artificial Intelligence & the Downfall

    Why would a bank make a press release that we might be living in a computer program? http://www.independent.co.uk/life-style/gadgets-and-tech/news/bank-of-america-the-matrix-50-per-cent-virtual-reality-elon-musk-nick-bostrom-a7287471.html
  4. has Trump earned a straight-jacket yet?

    not yet, but having voted for him as the lesser of two evils, my suspicions that he is an expert con artist seem to be coming true
  5. Light Phenomenon -- advice? ideas?

    It is important not to be distracted by side effects related to cultivation, such as tingling or magnetism between the hands or lights. Never practice with the intention of causing these. Notice them and continue.
  6. Making your own tonic potion

    thanks for the links I think it was a passing fancy after stumbling on deer antler velvet at a supplement website
  7. Making your own tonic potion

    Hunting season approaches in WI and I was considering a deer penis tonic potion. Or if a youngish male should even need one. And how to ask my hunting buddy to cut off the buck's duck (quack!) before it dies. You slice it in long strips and soak it in alcohol for a few weeks then imbibe 10ml every morning first thing. My gut tells me I should only imbibe tcm herbs if prescribed from a knowledgeable herbalist/acupuncturist. It also says that if I'm serious about this I should probably go hunt it myself.
  8. Real taoist semen retention practices

    how did this harm you exactly? I have heard to contract the perineum with only your mind or risk stagnation, but there are also lots of physical contracting that can be done i am just curious I don't mean to sound incredulous
  9. Six Healing Sounds (table with variations)

    I love your avi thanks for the link I wonder why mantak chia is so different from other teachers of six healing sounds
  10. I read about this famous duel in a book about musashi. Very tricksy, that one https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sasaki_Kojir%C5%8D#The_Duel "According to the legend, Miyamoto arrived more than three hours late, and goaded Sasaki by taunting him. When Sasaki attacked, his blow came as close as to sever Miyamoto's chonmage. He came close to victory several times until, supposedly blinded by the sunset behind Miyamoto, Miyamoto struck him on the skull with his oversized bokken, or wooden sword, which was 110 centimeters long. Miyamoto supposedly fashioned the long bokken, a type called a suburitō due to its above-average length, by shaving down the spare oar of the boat in which he arrived at the duel with his wakizashi. Miyamoto had been late for the duel on purpose in order to psychologically unnerve his opponent, a tactic he used on previous occasions, such as during his series of duels with the Yoshioka swordsmen."
  11. Should I poison myself?

    it doesnt really make sense because a nasty essence becomes nasty qi but there are said techniques i suppose
  12. Should I poison myself?

    Buttercup: "And to think, all that time it was your cup that was poisoned!" Man in black/ Westley : "They were both poisoned. I've spent the last few years of my life building up an immunity to iocane powder."
