The color and the temperature in the palm of qigong master were tested by AQA780 thermal imaging system (Sweden) in the Laboratory of Engineering, Department of Heat Engineering, Qinghua University, on Dec 8. 1984, to testify if the external qi (waiqi) given out by qigong master under the state of qfigong is an objective material possessing energy. The result showed that there were different change of the color and the temperature in the palm along with the change of the idea of qigong master who got into the state gradually. For example, with the arrival of the idea of qigong master, the temperature of the forefinger went up 3 degrees C, the temperature of Laogong point (the centre of the palm), went up 3.5 degrees C even 4.5-5 degrees C after the strengthening of the idea, but the temperature of the palm where the idea had not arrived went up inconspicuously (only 0.5 degrees C or below).
