Human Body

4 AsIAn FusIon ancient Indian and Chinese systems The basic premise of all ancient systems is that we are part of a larger living body, the Cosmos, and are shaped its forces. In Chinese, unity divides into the opposites yin and yang, which resolve as a vortex of chi, energy that flows through all things. Chis flux through humans was initially charted by observers who presumably had an idea of the likely internal apparatus from animal butchery and imagination. They sensed chichannels on the body, named meridians, which map onto twelve internal organs, with central connexions out of sight. Meridians guide the flow of organ specific chi around your innards and out through your extremities. Being alive is the ability to accept, transform, and radiate chi, in all its infinite guises, back to the universe. Each of the 361 vortices along the meridians, often used as access points, has its own quality of chi, reflecting an aspect of its related organ, itself ruled by the interplay of five elements p.58. Indias two middle meridians form a double spiral which snakes up the spine, channelling kundalini. This is rising prana chi whose yin and yang are shiva and shakti. Where the snakes cross, seven midline vortices form chakras, spinning coloured twoway prana funnels which fluctuate according to your current state. These perennial systems not only map inner states onto your skin, but also encompass the outer influences of human interfaces with nature, such as diet, habits, and locale, so your total level of integration with the cosmos determines your bodily vitality. Baffled boffins interpret prana, or chi, as electricity, central nervous gating effects explaining the ability of acupuncture to anaesthetize.
