The 3-5 microns infrared spectra of the external 'Qi' generated by a 'Qigong' master from his palm was measured using a III-V compound semiconductor InSb detector. It was found that certain Qigong master can emit two opposite kinds of 'Qi': the 'facilitating' (beneficial) and 'inhibiting' (destroying) 'Qi'. During the facilitating 'Qi' emission, large amount of infrared wave were detected by a temperature rise of the air in the vicinity. When the inhibiting 'Qi' was emitted, the infrared wave was absorbed from the environment resulting in a cooling of the air. The temperature rise or drop possibly reflects the fact that the blood flow to the palm was increased or decreased by dilating or constricting the blood vessels through parasympathetic or sympathetic nerves. The biochemical effects of emitted 'Qi' from the same Qigong master on the
human fibroblast FS-4 were investigated. The facilitating 'Qi' caused 1.8% increase of the cell growth in 24 hrs, 10-15% increase of DNA synthesis and 3-5% increase of protein synthesis of the cell in a 2-hr period; while inhibiting 'Qi' caused 6% decrease of cell growth in a 24 hr period, 20-23% decrease of DNA synthesis and 35-48% of protein synthesis in a 2-hr period. In addition, we found that the respiration rate of boar sperm increased 12.5-13.0% after receiving 5 min exposure in facilitating 'Qi,' and a decrease to 45-48% by exposure to 2-min of inhibiting 'Qi.' The results could be attributed to the effects of emitted 'Qi' or energy containing infrared light (wave) and possibly some other types of energy.
