To-measure changes in the electroencephalogram (EEG) of a ki master and ki recipients during ki emission.

A 54-year-old, male ki master and three recipients were recorded with 21-channel digital EEG technique using the 10-20-electrode placement system. Ki recipients were three Caucasian females with no prior experience with ki practice. The ki master has practiced ki healing for more than 20 years. EEG recordings were obtained from the ki master and each recipient during baseline, direct healing ki emission, transtelephonic healing ki emission, and emission of fighting ki through the study subject to a third individual. EEG recordings were reviewed in a blinded fashion by a neurologist with no ki experience. Results: No detectable EEC changes occurred during ki emission, either in the ki master or in the subjects.
Conclusions: EEG may not be an appropriate objective instrument to measure ki activity, at least for moving-type ki.
