Psychotechnology and Quan Fa Meditation Practices

Postby Sorcerer » Wed Mar 19, 2014 1:57 am

I dont know how many of you are into the social sciences and reading news etc but one cant help notice how Northern countries are becominc increasingly more "intimate" with their iphones and facebook provfiles. I wanted to ask what you guys make of this video, specifically how it relates to traditional martial arts and their purported role in society.

should have warned us its almost 20 minutes 8) I'll watch when I have some time!
Even in mildly complex systems, any outcome is the wrong thing to target, with the process being where the focus should be.

My first reaction was that I thought hte idea fascinating. But, after some thinking, I am not that keen on invoking a technoapocalypse. Rather do my zazen.

He is explaining wuji.. to the best terms he can.

His math is close... but he has not tied down the y/y.

Perhaps someone more knowledgeable can correct my understanding. Having watched it, it almost seems like he's over-intellectualizing the idea of wuji entirely. Maybe it's as sub_human said, that the understanding he presents lacks a basis of ying and yang to begin with.
