- An Evaluation of the
Present and the Future
by Major Hu Jia Xiang
Is Qigong, and the development of Extraordinary Human Feats (EHF) a
"false science"? This was a hot topic of debate in this country during early
In my desire to discover the ways and means to promote the healthy development of Qigong
in China , I personally paid a visit to the founder of CUQ, Master Huang Cheng Zhang. The
contents of the interview are reproduced as follows : -
Q. What is your opition on the argument put forward by a group of people
in early \95 that Qigong and EHF are just "false science".?
A.I am of the view that the arguments have resulted in some constructive
reactions among the Qigong practitioners.They had to reassess their situation and conduct
scientific research to support their view i. e .prove the existence of Qi and the
phenomena of ehf.
Q.Do you think Qigong and EHF are"false sciences"?
A.I do not agree with such a statement. Ipersonally believe that Qigong
is one of the most valuable heritage of our nation and culture.We are talking about a high
level of natural science that involves humankind and the universe.If both are in balance
and harmony, we can avoed or reduce many disasters.
This is an area of science which encompasses the knowledge accumulated in the field of
medicine, health ,meteorology and etc.The popular scientist,Dr Qian Xue Sen refers to it
science of man and universe" .This statement is profound and carries the ultimate
divine secret.However, many people do not understand fully the meaning thereof,and coupled
with the lack of thorough research,they chose to deny the existence of EHF and Qigong`s
effectiveness.To quote an analogy, we cannot deny the existence of oxygen and electrons
just because we cannot touch or see it.The study of Qigong and EHF still requires thorough
research and documentation of proof in terms of personal experience or testimonials.
Ignorant people who choose to condemn Qigong to gain personal rame are not thinking of the
welfare of the people.Qigong and EHF cannot be determined as false arbitrarily.Ihave
personally healed numerous patients suffering from heart diseases, bronchitis, gastero
intestinal diseases and women with menstrual problems ,etc.In certain cases,patients have
been cured after 2-3 minutes of Qi emission and the "heavenly secret
recipe"treatment.It has been scientifically accepted as a fact that EHF is possible
and Qigong is effective.
A.Yes,it does.It has been demonstrated by my years of experience in
conducting healing sessions and experiments of using "External Qi".This can be
tested by using modern scientific methods and equipment. In fact,we detected the presence
of an electromagnetic field,secondary sound wave and "power message". On 15th
Dec 1994,Iwa sinvolved with a series of tests conducted by the "International Qigong
Research Center",in the presence of the director, Major General Feng Lida.In one
test, Iemitted"External Qi "at ten samples of organisms for 6 minutes. All ten
samples showed changes.On average,the haemochrome was raised by 3.1g/l for every
sample,the function of luecocyte by 1.5%. If the opportunity arises,I am willing to
carry out experiments of emitting "External Qi"on sportsmen ,in conjunction with
the National Organizationof Human Sciences,to find out if it boosts their performance.
Developing EHF will help sportsmen increase their capability during competitions.
Q.According to available data,there are about 2, 400 types of Qigong made
known to the public, whilst there are over 90, 000 Qigong Masters as certified and
registered by the Science Research Center and Qigong associations. Under such
circumstances, how can we ensure a positive and healthy development of Qigong in this
A.After the party's 11th General Meeting,the practice of Qigong was
officially allowed. From that time on ,Qigong developed,and the perception of Qigong as an
esoteric ancient art being practiced in the temples gradually metamorphosised into modern
science. However ,there had been incidencesof malpractice due to:
(1) Lack of legislation concerning the practice of Qigong and the
absence of a regulatory body.
(2)The lack of standardisation in the evaluation , assessment and
certification of different Qigong practice leading to variances in the quality of Qigong
(3)Qigong Masters who have corrupted the practice of Qigong due to greed
and ulterior motives.
To eliminate these negative elements, the
Government will have to pas legislation to regulate the Qigong arena,establish standards
and a regulatory body to standardise the certification of Qigong Masters. This will
strengthen the image of Qigong and prevent malpractices by Qigong masters. The Government
must promote strongly the "effective then credible"philosop towards Qigong
i.e.people should only be convinced by effective results and not otherwise, in order to
eliminate "poor quality"or"false Qigong". On the other hand,the Qigong
practitioners must take the initiative to sacrifice time and resources to educate and
guide the people in the scientific aspect of Qigong.This will help to improve and develop
the Qigong arena.
Q. Presently,what is your view on Qigong Science?
A. As early as the 60's,there was a Qigong Research Center being set up
in Switzerland . In the former Soviet Union, under the rule of Stalin, 30 Gigong research
centres were established. There is a Qigong institute in Canada,while in the U. S. A,
Qigong is an elective subject for trainee astronauts. In 1995 ,handsome rewards were
offered on an international scale in an effort to recruit the cream of the Qigong
Masters.The world is awadening to the vast potential of Qigong .Time and tide waits for no
one. If we do not value Qigong,and neglect its development, we would be letting history
repeat itself. Just as how the westerners leapfrogged ahead of China and improved and
adopted the use of China's four greatest inventions ( i .e.gunpowder,compass,printing
process, and paper) , the same could happen with Qigong.For the science of Qigong to
develop,we must hive it due recognition, treat it objectively and scientifically and not
discriminate against it.
Q. You are the founder of CUQ, how are yor going to develop CUQ?
1. "To undertake to develop the practice of Qigong regardless of
race,nationalities or religious beliefs .To preserve justice,equality and to serve the
people in order to benefit humankind".These are the objectives of CUQ.To develop
CUQ,we must adhere strictly to a high moral code and uphold the truth.
2. To expand the scientific development of Qigong to avoid falsehood.We
must take the initiative to conduct experiments and submit to tests and supervisory
examinations conducted by
various Qigong agencies in order to convince the people of the effectiveness and benefits
3. We conduct clases to teach CUQ on a massive scale to spread the
teachings of CUQ. Currently, I personally conduct all lessons and healiong sessions to
ensure that the purity and quality of the CUQ method is preserved.
4.Disciples are selected based on their integrity ,morality,sense of
honour and dignity in order to ensure that the heritage of CUQ will be passed on to good
hands in the future. There is no monetary consideration for discipleship. nor are there
any deification ceremonies or initiation rites.
