In the course of studying the effect of the emitted qi of qigong on physiological saline, glucose solution, etc., we have observed that the thermal state of substance itself changed in addition to the queer changes of the molecular structure of the substance. To study the mechanism of the emitted qi thoroughly, we have simultaneously observed and tested the temperature response of the biochemical substance by using the Infrared Thermovision AGA780. Because the thermovision is a passive heat testing instrument of two-dimension and non-contact type, and it is of higher precision and sensitivity, it is thus an ideal heat testing equipment.
During the experiment, the thermovision and the sample were put separately into two adjacent rooms. Eight hours before the experiment, the sample had been prepared to reach the sufficient thermal stability and the initial temperature (t[sub orig.] ) had been tested. Then the qigong master emitted his qi to the sample at a remote distance for 10 minutes to 2 hours. After the qi emission, the final temperature of the sample (t[sub term.]) was tested. In the course of testing, the 1010 type standard blackbody was used to calibrate the instrument’s reading whenever necessary.
There are 12 experimental samples in all, which are listed in Table 1. Samples such as L-tryptophan, serum albumin and vitamin B2 respond to the ultra-distant effect of the emitted qi with varying degrees of temperature response, the response range being from 1.5°C to 5.2°C.
Under normal circumstances, the aqueous solution of these substances is rather stable and so is the thermal state. Temperature responses to the effect of the emitted qi indicate that the structural changes of these substances are accompanied by the exothermic effect so that their own temperatures rise. Conversely, the temperature change of the substances verifies that their micro-structures may also change.
