Chapter 665 We Can See Meridians via Insight! Attainment of Immortality?!
“It is him?”
“Heaven is really just!”
“Wasn’t he the one who badmouthed Chinese Medicine on the afternoon of the first day?”
“Just as well, this is the chance to call him out.”
“Attack him back, Fang Qiu!”
“Prove that Chinese Medicine is credible and take him down without any mercy!”
Everyone in the livestreaming room had temporarily cast aside the feelings of envy, jealousy and hatred aside and started sending bullet screens like mad, eager to see how Fang Qiu would counter attack.
Back on the stage.
The host swept his gaze beneath the stage and only turned his head back, looking confused, as he realized that no one had got up. It was at this instant that he saw Henry get up, the ball of paper in hand.
In truth, Henry had wanted this opportunity very much as well.
However, it was a pity that he was a representative and had no way of competing with the audience seated beneath the stage.
Even so, he had made up his mind. Since he was onstage anyway, it did not matter who was selected to come up for the demonstration; he could observe from a close distance. He was definitely going to see what Fang Qiu could actually come up with.
Little did he expect that the ball of paper would land up in his hand.
This paper ball actually fell into his hands.
It made him happy beyond measure.
“Obviously, God is helping me.”
Henry looked at Fang Qiu with a sneer as he walked toward the podium with the paper. “I’m also very keen to witness for myself how something impossible can be made possible!” he said.
“You’ll see soon enough.”
Fang Qiu replied with a laugh and looked calm.
After he finished speaking, Fang Qiu turned around to look at the electronic timer hanging on the wall.
It was 25 mins past the hour on the timer, which meant that there was still five minutes left; Fang Qiu’s speech was about to end.
However, this did not let Fang Qiu feel anxious.
Instead, Fang Qiu began to smile very mysteriously.
He walked to the center of the stage.
Henry looked at Fang Qiu as he asked, “Tell me, what do you need me to do?”
Fang Qiu nodded matter-of-factly and acknowledged him before replying, “I’ll show you a meridian-collateral diagram first. After a while, you will tell me directly whether what you see in your body is similar to the diagram.”
Henry nodded and replied.
Fang Qiu fished out his phone and showed Henry the meridian-collateral diagram that he had searched for beforehand.
Henry merely looked at it casually.
As a result.
In the end, Fang Qiu forcefully brought the meridian-collateral diagram up to Henry’s face and clearly explained the location of all the meridians to the representative.
Under the circumstances, Henry really memorized the meridians.
“What happens next?” Henry asked after he had finished memorizing the diagram.
After memorizing the meridian map, Henry asked.
“Sit down cross-legged.”
As Fang Qiu spoke, he demonstrated how to sit in the cross-legged lotus position for Henry.
“Why do I have to sit?”
Henry shifted and smacked his lips, somewhat unwilling to comply.
He had specially wore his most expensive suit to attend this medical conference; he could not even bring himself to wear it on normal days. Even though he was on stage, it was still a place where people walked about and he considered it unclean. He was afraid of dirtying his suit and was therefore very unwilling!
Beneath the stage.
Everyone else was very unconvinced as well.
“Aren’t we going to see meridians and acupuncture points?”
“Why does he have to sit?”
He noticed that everyone was confused.
Upon noticing the doubtful faces of his audience, Fang Qiu began to explain, “This is the only way. The sole method a person can see meridians is through insight, also known as Vipassanā!”
Everyone present in the studio was dumbfounded after hearing his words.
“What does he mean?”
The Westerners were completely unaware of what he was speaking of!
Aside from the Westerners, many Huaxia people who were watching the livestream were also not too sure about insight.
“How could our eyes, which are on our heads, see what’s inside our bodies?”
“This is too incredible, don’t you think?”
The civilians who were watching felt extremely unconvinced.
The Chinese Medicine practitioners who were watching the livestream had also heard of Insight, but they never heard of anyone who could do it. As it was too incredible to be true, Insight had always been viewed of as a myth. It was also the reason why everyone was very unfamiliar with the topic.
“Fang Qiu actually brought up Insight?”
“Don’t tell me that he can do it?”
“Could it be that Fang Qiu wants this person to utilize Insight?”
In the Northeast.
Holy Doctor Chu, who had been somewhat disinterested in the talk at first, sat up straight with a flourish upon hearing Fang Qiu speak. He stared directly at Xu Miaolin, who was beside him, and asked, “Tell me, is it true that this student of yours can use Insight?”
“I’m as clueless about this as you are.”
Xu Miaolin was dumbfounded too.
He knew that Fang Qiu had learned some martial arts, and was rather good in it, but he had never heard that his student was able to use the skill of Insight!
In the capital.
In the room of a residential district.
Li Canming, the professor who studied overseas in the States, immediately frowned after hearing Fang Qiu. “I have never heard of this before. Looks like it’s going to be some ‘marvelous’ stuff that will be completely baseless again!” he muttered.
At the live event.
Everyone was full of doubts.
While everyone else was in a haze of suspicion, Fang Qiu started speaking again, “Insight was first mentioned in Lie Zi’s tome – Zhong Ni. I quote, ‘People who view things on the superficial level do not know how to see their inner workings. Such people will only be able to appreciate the external shells of the things they see, while those who are able truly able to be insightful can find joy from within’.”
“The Taoist text ‘Supreme Lao Zi’s Manual of Insight’ describes this method in detail. Of course, there are also various tomes of all sorts.”
“Meanwhile, in the field of medicine, about 1400 years ago, in the Tang Dynasty of Huaxia, the gifted physician Sun Simiao described in his ‘Prescriptions Worth a Thousand in Gold’ – ‘Practicing Insight will allow one to see the shape and color of internal organs clearly. Do not cease to do so’.”
Just as Fang Qiu was speaking, the earphones and teleprompters of several important guests present at the talk jammed up at the same instant.
Many big shots who were connected to the scene, as well as the translator, were stuck at the same time.
This was because Fang Qiu had just quoted from texts written by Huaxia scholars in Classical Mandarin writing.
The programs did not know how to process the Mandarin language in this form!
Fortunately, Fang Qiu explained it to them.
“This means that practicing Insight will allow someone to observe the shape and color of internal organs, for example hearts shaped like the lotus flower or the spleen turning yellow, or being able to observe the functions and operations of internal organisms. For example, while you practice abdominal breathing, you can see your internal Qi flowing along your meridians.”
“It also means that during ancient times in Huaxia, many people could use Insight to see the meridians in their bodies. It just happened that their descendants either did not know about this, did not practice Insight or chose not to cultivate their skill in it.”
Upon hearing these words.
Upon hearing this, the Huaxia people who were watching the livestream were dumbstruck.
“My, my… Did our ancestors really pass this skill down to us?”
“Is that true?”
“How many things were lost over time after being passed down from our ancestors?”
“Why did I not know that such things existed in medicine?”
“What the hell… Is he trying to get us to attain immortality?”
“Fang Qiu is trying to attain immortality!”
In the blink of an eye.
All of a sudden, a lot of people in the livestream began flooding the page non-stop, claiming that Fang Qiu was about to attain immortality.
In the midst of all that wild flooding, many people began to join in the livestreaming event as well.
There were also a lot of people who were also involved.
“If Fang Qiu is going to ascend to the Heavens, I want to become his disciple!”
“Disciple? Bah! I’m willing to become his lackey even!”
“How low can you stoop? Lackey? Damn it… Can you exercise some self-respect?”
“Do you think that I’ll respect myself once I’m able to ascend to the Heavens?”
Naturally, Fang Qiu did not know about all the comments flooding the livestream room.
He stood on the stage.
As he stood on the stage, Fang Qiu continued to speak. “In fact, normal people are not able to use Insight, because they are too impetuous emotionally and are unable to calm their minds down. Of course, Representative Henry is also part of this sub-group.”
Henry sniggered as he listened to Fang Qiu and grunted coldly.
Obviously, Henry did not believe Fang Qiu at all. He felt that Fang Qiu had been lying for the entire day, and that the Chinese Medicine advocate was trying to stall for time. He noticed that the talk was about to end, and Fang Qiu would be unable to carry out his promise and prove his claims once it was concluded.
Henry had even thought it over – if Fang Qiu’s real motive was to stall for time, he was going to attack Fang Qiu viciously again once the talk ended!
But at this moment.
At this moment, however, Fang Qiu spoke up. “Now, let me help Mr. Henry calm his thoughts down, so that he can utilize Insight.”
Fang Qiu opened his mouth.
Henry was stunned.
Time was not up yet.
“Is Fang Qiu really going to help me use Insight?”
“I don’t believe it at all!”
“Those down there.”
Fang Qiu continued as he walked up in front of Henry. “You are about to witness a miracle!”
As soon as these words came out.
Once he made the statement, many people held their breaths and focused their gaze on the stage, wondering what Fang Qiu was going to do.
Under the watchful gaze of everyone, Fang Qiu immediately walked up to Henry’s back and suddenly rounded his body, immediately assuming a Standing Stance position.
Fang Qiu walked directly to Henry’s back, and then moved his body round and immediately posed as a standing stance.
He then shifted into the Stance of Five Extremes!
He wrapped his arms together and placed them on the top of Henry’s head.
The scene caused many people who were watching the livestream and had practiced taking up the stance with Fang Qiu in the past to exclaim in surprise uncontrollably.
“We learned this before as well.”
“Isn’t that a foundational stance?”
“Damn… Taking up stances can help people to gain Insight? How come I didn’t know that they are so powerful?”
Under the exclamation of quite a number of people.
While many people were gasping, Fang Qiu began speaking to Henry. “Shut your eyes.”
After hearing this.
Upon hearing Fang Qiu, he immediately followed the Chinese Medicine practitioner’s instructions.
After all, he had been selected for the demonstration, so it was natural that he had to cooperate once he was onstage. As to whether Fang Qiu’s method would work, they would see after the end of their mutual cooperation.
At this moment…
Fang Qiu had begun communicating in English with Henry to help the Frenchman work better and more directly with him.
“Take a deep breath… ”
Fang Qiu said, drawing out his voice very long.
As Fang Qiu’s voice petered out, Henry kept drawing in breaths of air. He breathed in more and more, and he only heard Fang Qiu speak again when his entire abdomen was filled with air. “Breathe out… ”
Fang Qiu drew his voice out very long in the same manner as well.
Henry took a long time to breathe out too.
After that, he repeated the same sequence thrice more again.
Gradually, Fang Qiu began to sense that Henry’s body had begun to relax after the continuous breathing; even his entire expression had also relaxed as well.
Obviously, this meant that Henry’s thoughts were concentrated on his breathing.
Normal people would have a hard time trying to calm down.
A better way to achieve that was through breathing.
Focusing on breathing and listening to Fang Qiu’s voice was a way to prevent Henry’ thoughts from going all over the place. Once he could control his thoughts, he would naturally be able to calm his mind down.
Naturally, to achieve the desired effect, Fang Qiu had added in a little of his power into his voice, so that Henry would enter a state of calm even more quickly.
It was only until when the Frenchman was completely immersed in the rhythm of his breathing and had completely calmed down that Fang Qiu focused his gaze.
The internal Qi in his body stirred and surged out at the same time, instantly enveloping Henry within them.
Fang Qiu was extremely clear that it would be extremely good if Henry managed to achieve Insight in a year just by relying on this training method.
However, there was no time for him to wait now. As such, he needed to hasten the process.
It was such that he directly used his own internal Qi to stir the Qi in Henry’s body, before directing it to flow within the representative’s meridians.
He even stimulated Henry’s internal Qi to glow!
This was because Henry had never used Insight before, and he had completely no foundation in it. As such, Fang Qiu could only use this method to allow Henry to see the glow given off by his own internal Qi once he used the skill, to be able to see that meridians existed!
