The basic experiments of activation of seed germination and growth were conducted by three Japanese qigong masters (all of the chief instructors of the Japanese Qigong Association). In addition, an analogous installment of the emitted qi was applied to this purpose. The message of the emitted qi had been recorded on the data recorder and the qi was emitted by Japanese qigong masters who cured chronic diseases with it.
The invited qigong masters emitted their qi towards a certain volume of running water, turning it into the 'qi water”. Five kinds of seeds were irrigated by the 'qi water', running water to observe their germination and growth. Another kind of 'qi water” was prepared through the analogous installment of the emitted qi, named the 'analogous qi water'. The analogous installment of the emitted qi worked directly on the seeds too.
The qigong masters emitted their qi to the seeds of cabbage, etc. Except one, all seeds showed good result in budding and growth in comparison with the control group. The budding and growth increased by 15% compared with the control group (irrigated by the running water radiated by infrared ray).
Up to now, qigong has contributed a lot to keeping fit and treating diseases. However, our experiments indicate qi is a source of life and it is closely related to the non-random of life process. Further more, qi as a life message activates the life process of creatures (human being, animal, plant and microorganism).
