For the last day of IH 0051, my Asian instructor told us how the western paradigm of science failed to explain a number of things that could be done by people. Â One of his examples was how one could draw energy from the Earth Mother to grant people strength. Â This demonstration started with me sitting in a chair and three men and the instructor trying to lift me just using two fingers. Â They failed as the instructor stated, but after a few minutes of meditation they tried again. Â I thought they were going to succeed until I heard the first grunt of pain and felt myself falling onto the floor. Â It appears that Eastern meditation and the Earth Mother simply can’t overcome the powerful combination of a fat white man and physics.
