Ive had accupressure and accupuncture, and neither makes you jump like that. As to our ideology, most people write off anything that does not fit
inside their world view, and in the US there is very little contact with anything like chi, prana, etc, so most think its a myth. I lived in western
US for a while, and had experience with several tai chi masters, though they would not call themselves such, and have felt the energy of chi channeled
through me when i skeptically asked one to demonstrate...and it was no "carpet static"...didnt feel remotely the same. it was actually heat that
travelled through a certain path in my arm. I never saw any childs "carpet static" make a person jump in that way they did in the video.
You are assuming they had a purpose to fooling people, but the history of their relationship is not one of conspiring together. The brothers were
actually doing a documentary of life in indonesia called "ring of fire" in the 70's, and came upon him by accident. They were innitially somewhat
patronizing to him, but he completely blew away their world view with his demonstrations.
As to the "prepared" newspaper, it wasnt his, he took it from one of the brothers.
Its one thing to say, "hey, all these things could have been faked, and heres how" its quite another to state unequivicaly that its all BS just
because modern science can seem to duplicate some of the feats. The people there were SCIENTISTS, not armchair keyboard fools. He lit a lightbulb
with his hand...i guess carpet static can do that too, eh?
Dont let yourself be fooled by the assumption that you know anything. Recall that in 1900 we wanted to close the patent office because we thought
anything that Could be invented HAD been invented. There is exponentially more to life that we dont know than there is that we know, and its the
height of arrogance to assume that you are the pinnacle of that knowledge.
