I don't see what is so close minded to ask for proof other than video evidence shot by amateurs. If this guy were doing these things in a scientific
environment then i would happily believe him, but all i see are various tricks which could be performed by anyone with a good level of skill in
sleight of hand magic. As for people twitching, the placebo effect comes to mind.
Basically i'm calling this nonsense until i see proof and i find it odd that people are so quick to believe something without quality evidence.
I don't believe I said anywhere that asking for proof is close minded, in fact I advocate the opposite, it's nice to believe in such a positive thing,
however one must keep a healthy balance of skepticism and interest.
I for one didn't make this thread to discuss his validity, however that IF he is valid, then what does his "message" mean?

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ Not sure if it's real or not, but anything is possible.
I read through that and did a few google searches, I can't find good videos displaying the same "tricks" used by Chang, I've read through what Randi
suggests are tricks. Food for thought, ever thought magicians used illusions to replicate actual abilities?
What I'm merely suggesting is, on the topic of PROOF, I have not found viable evidence for either side. On my personal behalf, I've always felt
there's reasonable logic to the existence of chi.
As you said, anything is possible.
Thank you for the site, same to Symer, I do enjoy civil discussions.
