Falun Dafa is Beyond the Scope of Modern Science
In October 1998, some physicians at China Union Medical University did a large-scale survey among more than 10,000 Falun Dafa practitioners in Beijing regarding their health status. The results showed that 99.1% of Falun Dafa practitioners improved their health after practice; the disease cure rate was 58.5%; and the mental health improvement rate was 96.5%. Such unique cultivation practice effects cannot be explained by modern medicine. We, as medical scientists and direct beneficiaries of Falun Dafa (Falun Gong), have experienced the profoundness, depth, and supernormal nature of Falun Dafa in our genuine cultivation. Herein, from a medical point of view, we would like to share our experiences and understanding of the superior law of Falun Dafa.
1. Human Body Structure
Modern medicine's understanding about the human body structure is based on anatomy. Classic gross anatomy dissects the human body with scalpels at the level of naked eye, and recognizes that the human body consists of organ systems. Microscopic anatomy developed with the invention of the microscope and tissue sectioner, recognizes that organs consist of tissues, cells, and sub-cellular structures. With the advent of modern molecular biology, enzymes (endonucletidase, etc.) can dissect molecules, and man can directly investigate life activities at the molecular level. Modern molecular biology attempts to explain the fundamentals of life phenomenon through research of gene expression and regulation on the genetic material, DNA. In fact, this research has limitations because nowadays, high-energy physics and cosmology have already proved that the universe is composed of many dimensions and the human body structures are connected to every dimension of the universe to a certain extent.
Modern physics has discovered the existence of microscopic elements below the level of molecules. It believes that molecules form the matter of our physical world, atoms form molecules, atom nuclei and electrons form atoms, protons and neutrons form atom nuclei, and that protons contain neutrinos. Modern science has already illustrated the multi-dimensional feature of the universe in theory. Then, why does it fail to reveal other dimensions? Regarding this, Master Li points out in Zhuan Falun: "You know that the microscopic particles of matter include molecules, atoms, and protons. When investigating further, if you can see the plane of each level instead of a point, and see the plane of molecules, the plane of atoms, the plane of protons, and that of nuclei, you will see the forms of existence in different dimensions. All matter, including the human body, exists simultaneously in connection with dimensional levels of the cosmic space. When our modern physics studies the microscopic particles of matter, it only studies a microscopic particle through splitting it and fission. It will study its elements after nuclear fission. If there were such an instrument through which we could expand and see the level at which all atomic elements or molecular elements could manifest in their entirety, or if this scene were observed, you would reach beyond this dimension and see the real scenes existing in other dimensions. The human body corresponds to external dimensions, and they all have such forms of existence."
Indeed, the human body has different forms of in different dimensions. Modern medicine only studies our flesh bodies consisting of molecules in this dimension. Yet, below the level of molecules, there are forms of bodies consisting of atoms, electrons, protons, neutrinos, quarks, and more microscopic elements. Different forms of bodies consisting of different elements exist simultaneously. Our current technology can only study the body at the level of molecules. Therefore, modern medicine only has a partial understanding of the human body structure. Falun Dafa reveals the existing forms of bodies in all the deeper and more microscopic dimensions.
2. The etiology of disease
Modern medicine believes that diseases are caused by biological factors (virus, bacteria, parasites, etc), physical and chemical factors (mechanics, radiation, toxins, etc.), genetic and psychological factors, etc. These factors disturb the balance of injury and self-healing, which results in pathological changes of the body, such as endocrine, immunity disorders, etc. They also cause mutations and cell death in tissues of this physical dimension, which manifests as inflammations, abscesses, spurs, and tumor, etc. In recent years, with the development of molecular biology, people think that the etiology of any disease can be found at the molecular level. So they are seeking the disease genes on chromosomes. For example, certain genes have been identified for hypertension, diabetes, osteoporosis, and cancers, etc. Gene regulation and expression at the molecular level have become the frontier of modern biomedical research. The reason for the disorder of life activity at the molecular level is thought to be the disorder of balanced interactions among various factors at the level of molecules. Do the more microscopic elements below the level of molecules cause diseases as well? This has not been touched by modern life science.
In fact, what modern medicine has discovered is only the pathological change of human organs or cells in this physical dimension. Chinese traditional medicine sees blockage of Qi (energy) and Mai (energy channels) or congestion of Qi and blood as disease factors. Are there any disease sources at more microscopic levels? The answer is yes! Lecture 2 of Zhuan Falun states: " Why do people get sick? The fundamental cause of one's being ill and all of one's misfortune is karma and the black substance's karmic field. It is something negative and bad."
The roots of diseases are not in the body of this physical dimension, but in the body consisting of more microscopic elements below molecular level. This is beyond current scientific research technology. (Please refer to Zhuan Falun, the comprehensive cultivation guide written by Master Li, regarding the generation of karma and how one can eliminate it when one upgrades his Xinxing [mind-nature, morality], etc.)
Clinically, medicines for hypertension can maintain normal blood pressure; nitroglycerin can relieve chest pain in heart attacks; surgeries and radiation therapies can remove tumor tissue temporarily. Yet, they cannot eradicate the disease. This is because all medicines are composed of molecules. They can only act on diseases in the body at the molecular level, but not the karma in the body at more microscopic levels. Surgeries can only remove tissues in this dimension. Radiation cannot touch karma because of the limitation in the size and energy of its molecules. Modern science already knows that atoms possess more energy than molecules, protons possess more energy than atoms, and the smaller elements possess more energy. Karma exists in a more microscopic dimension below the level of molecules; therefore medicines formed by low-energy-molecules cannot affect karma. Before practicing Falun Dafa, as medical professionals, although we work in hospitals, pharmacies, and have access to all kinds of advance equipment, we could not cure our own diseases. After practicing Dafa, along with the healing of all incurable diseases, we experienced the happiness of being truly disease-free.
Here are some examples. Shuqing Feng is a physician at China People's Liberation Army Hospital No. 304. Before practicing Dafa, she had hypertension, coronary artery disease (CAD), stroke, diabetes, peripheral neuritis, irritable bowel syndrome, duodenal ulcer, neurasthenia, allergic dermatitis, etc. and had been taking medicine for many years. After only half a year of practice in 1994, all of her symptoms disappeared and never recurred again. She is now full of energy.
Jingzhu Zhang is a 60-year-old retired nurse from Tian Tan Hospital. In March 1994, she had Myasthenia gravis with drooping eyelids. She could not see and take care of herself. She saw all the specialists in different hospitals and received therapy for several years. The effect was minimal. Her eyelids could only open slightly. Her suffering was indescribable. In May of 1997, she started to practice Falun Gong. Within a year, her body changed miraculously. Her eyes opened gradually. Not only the incurable MG was miraculously cured, but also her chronic hypertension and CAD disappeared.
Xiuge Li is a 56-year-old physician at the university hospital in Beijing University. She had CAD for two years and was hospitalized four times. Every hospitalization took more than one month. She often experienced angina, could not exert much, and was almost semi-retired during the two years. Her CAD was cured soon after she practiced Falun Gong. She went back to work and was full of energy. She also had cervical radiculitis and often had dizziness, numbness in her hands, and difficulty elevating her shoulders. Tylenol did not help. All these disappeared after practicing Falun Dafa.
Deping Li is a 43-year-old nurse in The Metallurgy Hospital. She had multiple sclerosis in 1989. She developed right hemi paralysis after the treatment. A year later, she had severe complication with bilateral femoral head aseptic necrosis and deformity of her left hip. For three years, the long and painful treatments and countless expenses had no effect. "Accidentally, I discovered Falun Gong. Every word of Master Li touched my heart. I wanted to cultivate. The night I read China Falun Gong, my body had a strong reaction. By the seventh day, I was healed! By the eighth day, I went to the practice site riding a bicycle. I could not speak fluently before. Now I can read Zhuan Falun out loud. The doctor ordered bed-rest for me, but now I am strong enough to ride a bicycle. My hip pain caused by bilateral femoral head aseptic necrosis has disappeared. The femoral heads became normal by X-ray. In this world, this condition is incurable no matter how much money one spends."
Yuqin Wang is a 60-year-old female. She was a Radiologist in Beijing Anhua Hospital. She developed incurable radiation-related diseases because of occupational radiation over-dose. Her body was severely damaged and her health was extremely debilitated. "As a physician, I had all kinds of therapy: hospitalization, physical therapy, various medications and herbs, as well as several Qi-gong methods. None of them helped. I was thin like a skeleton and could not straighten my back. My symptoms included whole body weakness, hair loss, dyspnea on exertion, vertigo, dizziness, stabbing headache, fever, diarrhea, mucosal bleeding, blurred vision with intermittent blindness, frequent fractures, and mouth ulcers. I was like being soaked in bottles of medicines. My suffering was so painful that it cannot be described by words. My health was deteriorating day by day. I was struggling at the point of death. In this desperate situation, I fortunately obtained Falun Dafa. Dafa made me understand what a human being lives for. I required myself to meet the standard of Zhen-Shan-Ren (Truthfulness, Benevolence, Forbearance). I studied the law and practiced the exercises every day. This changed my body upside down: my face turned pink; my skin became smooth; my hair is getting thicker and turning black; my vision became so sharp that I can read books clearly; my body is so light, as if I am being pushed by someone when I walk, ride a bicycle, or climb stairs. Now, I have truly experienced the feeling of being disease-free. Since practicing Dafa, I have not received a single injection or pill. I have been receiving bonuses from work for not receiving medical compensation every year. From being a nearly disabled person, I turned into a healthy and happy person who is striving to be good and better. This is a miracle from modern medicine's point of view!"
Ruifen Tang is a 56-year-old female Internist at the Medical Office of Xidan Shopping Center. She had right breast cancer in 1989 and received surgery and chemotherapy. In 1992, she was diagnosed with bone metastasis at Beijing University Hospital. She initially received a higher dose of chemotherapy. During these four years, she was hospitalized in five different hospitals and spent several thousand Chinese Yuan on medicine, which had no effect. In July 1993, she discovered Falun Dafa and started to practice. She was fortunate enough to have her body tuned up by Master Li himself. In the next five years, she did not spend a penny on medicine; but instead, she became healthier than an ordinary person. She cooks three meals for six people in her family and takes care of her one-year-old grandson.
Examples like these are countless. Many practitioners have reached the disease-free state through cultivating Dafa. We have also seen cures of hypertension, CAD, diabetes, and even cancers. When these live facts are presented in front of us, we have to face these supernormal objectives with scientific attitude.
3. Why Falun Dafa Has Such Unique Effect?
This is the sure result that can only be obtained by practitioners through their cultivation under the guidance of the superior law of Falun Dafa. Dafa reveals the true etiology of disease. The propagation of Dafa leads a practitioner to a cultivation way beyond the level of ordinary people.
When one is determined to cultivate, one's Buddha nature comes out. "When one's Buddha-nature emerges, it will shake 'the world of ten directions.' Whoever sees it will come to give a hand and help this person out unconditionally." [Zhuan Falun]. He will be helped because he wants to cultivate, to return to his original true self, to upgrade his moral standard to higher levels towards Shan (Benevolence). Practitioners of Falun Dafa cultivate their Xinxing according to the characteristics of the universe Zhen-Shan-Ren (Truthfulness, Benevolence, Forbearance), discard various bad attachments like jealousy, the competitive mentality, the show-off mentality, and complacency; become good persons, and are strict with themselves to be more noble and better people.
Falun Dafa can also purify one's soul. This is also well manifested in the medical field. After learning Falun Dafa, many medical personnel understood that the meaning of life is not to get, but to give. At work, those who used to dislike their jobs started enjoying their work. Those who had bad attitudes towards work and patients became responsible, patient, and warm-hearted. Facing some of the immoral trends in the medical field, Dafa practitioners showed high morality.
For example, during five years of practicing Dafa, ShiYue Chen, the Director of Orthopedics of The Metallurgy Hospital, rejected (from patients) several thousand dollars in cash, countless invitations for dinners, cigarettes, wine, and clothes worth several thousand dollars.
Suxiang Wang, a Neurologist at Tian-Tan Hospital, has been taking fame and benefit lightly since practicing Dafa. Several times she rejected cash bonuses of hundreds of dollars and other things. When offered genuine gifts from patients' family members, she told them: "I am a Falun Dafa practitioner. I only give without asking anything in return." As a doctor, she never uses names of her relatives to prescribe medicine to cheat insurance. Her parents became sick, but she paid for the medicine herself. Her parents require nasal-gastric tubes and bladder catheters that need to be changed every month. Her colleagues told her to take some from the hospital, since this kind of medical equipment is so convenient to get. "I always keep in mind that I am a Falun Dafa practitioner. I must judge myself against the standards of a cultivator." Therefore, she insists on buying them herself.
Yongwang Yong is a physician at the Surgery clinic in Beijing Worker's Rehabilitation Center. Before practicing Dafa, he always thought that a good surgeon only needed to do more operations and know how to operate well, but that he did not need to pay too much attention to ethics. Patients seek treatment; a surgeon can do whatever he wants. After studying Zhuan Falun, he learned that he put himself to a wrong position. He realized that no matter how good his techniques is, a doctor is not a good doctor if he is not considerate of his patients. His Xinxing (mind-nature) upgraded. His view of life changed. No matter what kind of emergency he encounters at work, even when he is sworn at by patients, he still serves his patients calmly. There is a shortage of doctors in the office. Sometimes patients need to have their medicine changed during weekends, so he works voluntarily without compensation. Every time when patients want to present him gifts, he refuses. Many people have seen his change both physically and mentally before and after the practice. He was honored Best Member in the hospital in 1998, as well as Super Worker in the Union.
Chengtao Lin is an Assistant Researcher at the Biochemistry Department in Union Medical University. After graduate study since January 1995, he worked there for five years. He requires himself to follow Zhen-Shan-Ren of Falun Dafa. He puts his heart into his research project and maintains his contract. Although he is not rich, he does not use this Department as a ticket to go abroad. (This is common in China. People use all means to try to go abroad to study and do not care about the benefit of their work place and China.) When people around him could not understand and called him a fool, he said I am not refusing the opportunity to study abroad in the future. But I am a Falun Dafa practitioner, and I must require myself to meet the standard of Zhen-Shan-Ren. I cannot cause any damage to the laboratory and to the country by violating the contract.
Huilin Yue, an editor in the People's Health Publishing Co., rejects any extra "cash bonus" when reviewing articles. She is widely praised by the authors. Under her influence, many people started practicing Dafa.
Among Falun Dafa practitioners, good people and examples like these are countless.
Through studying the law and cultivating Xinxing, Falun Dafa practitioners' moral standards are upgraded. Lecture 1 of Zhuan Falun states: "Cultivation depends on one's own efforts, while the transformation of gong is done by one's master."
When one wants to cultivate, Master will purify the student's body using Gong consisting of high-energy, and clean up karma that causes disease as well as the elements that make the body unhealthy, etc. The Buddha School does not attach any conditions to providing salvation to man. Practitioners understand the law, suffer pain to eliminate karma, upgrade their Xinxing, take fame and benefit lightly, maintain compassion and kindness, always consider other people first, and strive to reach the realm of unselfishness. As one practices and upgrades his Xinxing, the karma in his body becomes less, his bodily forms in every dimension become purer and purer, the Gong developed in his body becomes more and more substantial, and diseases are automatically eradicated. All of the investigations in Guangzhou, Dalian, and Changchun concluded the same results as the one in Beijing. These all confirmed Falun Dafa's unique effects on physical and mental health.
4. Falun Dafa is a practice of both mind and body
As a practitioner's energy potency becomes increasingly greater, the cells in his body will be gradually filled with high-energy matter, and his body will turn younger. In the end, the body will be replaced by high-energy matter, and one will stay young forever. Nowadays, more than 100 million people are practicing Falun Dafa worldwide, including many elders. Many elderly people had decreased wrinkles and increased energy. Their white hair turned black and their skin became smooth. Many postmenopausal women have their periods again. All these indicate reversed aging process.
Modern medicine believes that the production, proliferation, growth, and death of cells are natural processes, and that the aging process is irreversible. These are unchangeable laws. Aging theory believes that when the body is aging, there are disorders in multiple organ systems. Various factors induce genetic mutations that cause genes to express the wrong information and products. This disturbs the normal metabolic process, which results in a vicious cycle, and leads to aging. The phenomenon of reversing the aging process in Falun Dafa has gone beyond any modern medical theory. However, it will not be hard to understand when we apply the law of Dafa. Since the universe has different levels of time and dimensions, the universal characteristic Zhen-Shan-Ren has different manifestations at different levels and develops different laws. Aging is irreversible for ordinary people. When practitioners go beyond the level of ordinary people, they are controlled by the law of this level. In the meantime, practitioners collect large amount of high-energy matters from other dimensions through cultivation. These high-energy matters deposit in cells, suppress the aging factors at the molecular level, and delay the aging process. During cultivation, the mutated cells are eliminated, and normal cells are gradually replaced by Gong (high-energy matters). The aging processes are reversed, and practitioners will stay young forever. In Chinese history, many cultivators left flesh bodies that did not rot for thousands of years. Some lamas in Tibet showed a phenomenon known as vaporization when they completed their cultivation. That is, their body suddenly turned into a rainbow. Those who did not cultivate well enough might leave some nails or hair, or their body might shrink into a flesh body of smaller size. This phenomenon has been witnessed by many people in Tibet. People are always puzzled by it. The reason actually is, these cultivators' bodies were filled completely or mostly by the high-energy matter collected from other dimensions.
Falun Dafa can purify practitioners' bodies to disease-free state and allow practitioners to upgrade to higher levels. Dafa tells us that one's life is meant to go back to his original self, to assimilate with the characteristic of the universe Zhen-Shan-Ren, and to return to one's kind and benevolent nature. Through cultivation, practitioners eventually achieve the realm of unselfishness. Only at this time, can they discover the truth of the universe and see the real existence of matter and lives in different dimensions. When one reaches this status through practicing cultivation, he actually becomes an enlightened person. An "enlightened person" is a "Buddha" when translated into ancient Indian language.
Falun Dafa practice sites and practitioners provide free teaching. Falun Dafa only cultivates people's heart and has no organization. Falun Dafa leads people to cultivate towards benevolence.
As one can see, Falun Dafa is an orthodox cultivation way, a high morality law, a supernormal science, and a blessing for the country and people. This is absolutely different from those fake Qi-gong methods and evil ways that cheat people or promote superstition. We, as medical scientists and direct beneficiaries of Falun Dafa, would like to sincerely tell all the people in the world:
There is an orthodox law being propagated in this world!
May you treasure this rare opportunity!
It will be best for you to read Zhuan Falun through the first time. If you have any questions during the reading, just keep them for the time being. You will find the answers after you finish the book. This will help you to have a comprehensive understanding about Falun Dafa.
