Fat + Physics > Thin + Asian Metaphysics

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