There is a cult of ignorance in the United States, and there always has been. The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that "my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge." - Isaac Asimov, Newsweek (21 January 1980)

A nice little tidbit courtesy of Allan F.:

----------------------------------------------

From Zhai Weichuan's book "Wu Shi Taijiquan Zhuang Gong" 武式太极拳桩功 (apologies from the poor translation).

...when you try to move forward, the front leg will change to full and two hands open, you should pull the body back as well. It is the same when you move left or right, up or down. You should feel that pulling against each other inside your body.

When you practice "martial standing" 技击桩 the mind should lead the body. The body should connect as a whole. It is the foundation of martial arts and should be practiced strictly.

There are three steps to train.

1) whole body has to be relaxed during the training. Try to feel the contradicting forces inside your body. Start from single movement. For example move forward and feel the back pulling you back. Step down and feel the foot being pulled up.
You should always feel the opposite forces pulling your body during movement. That can balance your body. Don't concentrate on the movement changes.

2) when you fell the body connection properly you can try to move every part of your body when one part is moving. Try to feel the contradictory forces and the connection of the whole body during the forward/backward, left/right, up/down movement. Concentrate on the mind training, this is very important.

3) it is the coordination of outside and inside the body. By the means of practicing with a partner to unite the body and environment. Every movement includes movement and stillness, hold and launch, which is yin and yang. Try to understand Jin (trained power) and reach the level that a feather can't be added and a fly can't land. No one knows me but I know everyone.

Feel everything surround you.

Oh, and if you have a pre-existing condition, fuck you, too.
