Scientific experiments have confirmed that the emitted qi can be used to produce different effects on external objects, such as plants, human beings, etc. The emitted qi also has a special function in medical treatments. What is especially noteworthy is that it can be used to treat difficult cases and cancer.
The tradescantic paludosa micronuclear technique established by Professor Ma Dehsiu of Western Illinois State University in the United States was used to determine that the qi emitted with the intention of protecting flowers will decrease the rate of appearance of micronuclei in the tetrads formed after meiosis of the pollen mother cells and that the qi emitted with the intention of injuring the flowers will increase the rate of appearance of micronuclei in the tetrads.
According to statistics there is a significant difference between the experimental group and the control group.
The experiments show that the qi emitted under control of the mind has a bi-directional effect on the chromosomes of hereditary material. It may protect and also destroy. The protective effect provides theoretical evidence for using the emitted qi to prevent and treat cancer, and counteract the hereditary toxicity imposed on the body by radiotherapy and chemotherapy. And it also proves that the emitted qi has a marked protective effect on the hereditary material before and during the chromosome damage caused by chemotherapy. Therefore, when the emitted qi is used for medical treatment, the emphasis should be on prevention and early treatment.
This paper also suggests that the appearance rate of micronuclei may serve as a measurement of intensity of the active factor, so it is possible to use the skill of tradescantic paludosa to determine the force of the emitted qi.
The experiments show that the effect of the emitted qi is related to the mental activity of the qigong master. It can be said that the emitted qi has the properties of a mental message. This furthers the studying of the nature of the emitted qi.
