You state osmosis with water within the cells could explain Chi and how it is used. I am afraid I do not know much about Chi. Am I right in thinking that it is the so called 'life force' that flows through the body?
I do not quite understand how water moving could affect the body in a substantial, beneficial way, or for that matter how a human could will this water to move at all. If you could better explain it, it would be very helpful!

I was admitted into a adolescent psychiatric hospital earlier this year for an apparent "mental break"(I was doing a bunch of psychedelics at the time, but I still think I was sane and that the admission was entirely unnecessary), and one of things I was convinced of is that H20 is the life force. Unfortunately, I have pretty much forgotten much of my reasoning behind it, I kinda shut up about the topic as I learned how quickly you will be labeled as insane if you have any alternative belief system, no matter how harmless or rational it is.
Many cultures have a concept of some sort of vital energy which runs through all things, such as prana in the yogic tradition. When it is in a proper state of balance, the energy moves smoothly through the space which it inhabits, and supports rather than fights against the space. Balancing this energy is a crucial part of living a healthy and calm life for many people in Asian countries, and the concept of energetic balance has been adopted by some Western nations as well.

You don't need religion to understand that. Anyone can right that down and have it be correct, doesn't matter if it is the Bible or not.
