Information-Energy Equivalence in Qigong: Reviewing Dossey and Schwartz’s “Therapeutic Intent/Healing Bibliography of Research” in Light of Pang Ming’s Three Levels Theory of Matter

Kean Hin Ooi, Liang Han Simm, Choon Soo Tan

Abstract


The paper “Therapeutic Intent/Healing Bibliography of Research”[1], together with relevant studies involving the effects of external qi healing found on the PubMed database from January 2000 to July 2012, were reviewed from the point of view of therapeutic intent mechanism and healing intent specificity. From an oriental medicine perspective, therapeutic intent is a form of external qi healing. Research into therapeutic intent has met significant resistance, primarily because there is no obvious theoretical model to account for these phenomena. By applying the Three Levels Theory of Matter as proposed by Zhineng Qigong founder, Pang Ming, this article points the way to such a possible mechanism

Keywords


Three Levels Theory of Matter, therapeutic intent, nonlocal therapy, external qi therapy, external qi treatment
