This paper deals with a new theory about Qigong that the Qigong state is a new form of orderly life motion. Qigong exercise is a process to keep life motion synchronous and in order under the guidance of the mind. Orderly life motion brings great changes to the human body. It can not only raise the level of wisdom and health, prolong life expectancy, but also tap potential powers of the human body so as to lead life motion up to a higher energy level.

Classical works on Chinese medicine and Qigong as well as effective
Qigong forms and modern scientific experimental results may all serve to support the theory of orderly life motion. The key point of the theory shows that the motion towards order inside a matter will help increase its energy level. It is just like common light and laser light which are similar in brightness but different in energy level. The motion towards order inside a matter can only be realized under the circumstances where the matter is controlled by an exciting point, the path the excitement goes through keeps open, the physical activities are at the same pace, with the same frequency and in the same direction, and the excitement valve is stable.

The process of Qigong exercise is a process of making order and the
Qigong state is a great leap of human body mechanism. Human being is so far the highest form of life evolution with consciousness as its milestone. But up to the present, the consciousness still effectively controls all activities of the body, and life activities of the human body are in a state of disorder. Qigong exercises may serve to reduce the exciting points inside and outside the body to the lowest level.

The three adjustments of Qigong keep all the paths open from the brain to the different systems, tissues and even every cell. Persistent Qigong exercises and continuous synchronization make the whole life motion in order, hence give rise to the new form of life motion. Besides, modern physics illustrates that according to the second law of thermodynamics, entropy is always increasing, and that the universe is going toward an disorder future on the whole, but on the part, the evolution of things and life is but a process of orderly motion from the lower to the higher level, from the simple to the complicated. The essence of Qigong is subject to the general law of the universe.
