The qigong state consists of two—still state and dynamic state. Those who have Psi can show their psychokinesis state. These states are all related to mental activities. People doing qigong exercise all stay awake, but their awake feelings are different from others.
According to our working hypothesis, the same instrument and leads, and the method of comparison with the same persons before and after experiments were used to investigate the physiological brain effects in the qigong state and Psi state. The subjects in the experimental
group, having calmed down for 15-20 minutes, closed their eyes and had a REG test. When the experiment began. detailed records should be kept- Their mean value was determined by three rhythmical waves of REG- The mean value of the heart rate was determined by intervals of the three waves of REG- These data were used as the objective criteria in comparison in the experiment. There were three persons in the experiment. One of them did the quiescent qigong exercise. The second did the dynamic qigong exercise. The third had Psi. According to the method mentioned above, the first two persons were tested by REG for 34 times respectively. The last one was tested 45 times. There were 73 persons in the control group, 53 of which conducted mental arithmetic. The remaining people were sitting quietly. 73 people were all given REG test too. The data of the experimental group were compared with those of the control group.
The experiment indicated that the amplitude value of REG was reduced from 0.l594W (before doing qigong exercise) to 0.1157W (P<0.001) after they had done the quiescent qigong exercise with their eyes closed and their mind concentrating at the lower abdominal area (or Dantian), and that the amplitude value of REG reduced from 0.2544W (before doing qigong exercise) to 0.2359W (P<0.01) in those who had done the dynamic qigong exercise, but their heart rates had no obvious change. The experiment showed that the blood volume of the cerebral blood vessels of the forebrain of those who did the qigong exercise obviously reduced, while their heart rate did not apparently change. When the people entered the qigong state, these changes were not identical to those of the normal physiological rules of the body, because there appeared an inherent self-adjustment in the brain and the whole body. Those people who had Psi showed their psychokinesis, their amplitude value of REG increased from 0.276W (before the experiment) to 0.381W (P<0.05). It indicated that the blood volume in the cerebral blood vessels of the forebrain increased obviously, but the change of their heart rate was not apparent (P > 0.25). When the persons having Psi did not show their psychokinesis, their amplitude value reduced form 0.313W (before the experiment) to 0.278W (P<0.02). It indicated that the blood volume in the brain was obviously less than that before the experiment, and the change of the heart rate became obviously slow (P < 0.01). It has been shown by the experiment that the change of the blood volume in the brain was out of proportion to that of the heart rate and was not identical with that of the normal physiological rules of the body. We can see that there is a close connection between the change of the cerebral function and the change of the blood volume in the cerebral blood vessels of the forebrain when the persons having Psi show their psychokinesis. This is because their brain is in a state of special function when the persons having Psi show their psychokinesis. In the 53 cases of the control group the process of mental arithmetic could cause the reduction of the blood volume in the cerebral blood vessels of the forebrain and the increase of the heart rate (P> 0.001). Furthermore, in the control group, another 20 persons were sitting calmly only. There were no apparent changes of REG and the heart rate 30 minutes later (P>0.05).
For this reason, it shows that the qigong state, whether in quiescent or dynamic state and Psi state evidently, has a typical function of their own.
