1. The dual view of the universe in Taoism
Mr. Hu Fuchen is a researcher at the Institute of Philosophy of the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences in mainland China. He is renowned for his research in Taoist, Taoism, and immortal studies. In October 2002, he was invited by the then director Lee of the NTU's Department of Chinese Literature to visit Taiwan. I was fortunate to have a small seminar with Mr. Hu and the domestic Taoist expert Professor Li of the Academia Sinica, giving Mr. Hu a picture of Taoism research in Taiwan. Naturally, it included my findings in scientific experiments.
Mr. Hu has a very interesting background. He studied in the Department of Chemistry of Nankai University. After graduation, he learned philosophy and did medical and health work by chance, before pursuing traditional Taoism research for more than 20 years. His scientific and philosophical background played an important role in understanding Taoism. He gifted me a recent book "General Theory of Taoism -Taoist, Taoism, Immortal Studies." This is a comprehensive research on the history, central ideas, alchemy, immortality, and Taoist classics of Taoist and Taoism. It is an epic masterpiece. He also gave me ten pages of his lectures presented in Taiwan. I quickly noticed that he had a lecture on the dual view of the universe in Taoism, which inspired me inexplicably.
Mr. Hu emphasized that he wanted to tell the greatest secret of Taoism, which is the dual view of the universe. The universe is composed of two worlds: the material world and the void world. They are sometimes called the acquired world and the innate world. Some examples would be Fuxi creating the primordial bagua, and the King Wen of Zhou creating the manifested Bagua. In terms of currently-available scientific knowledge, the material world or the acquired world is our material four-dimensional spacetime, and the void world or the innate world is the information field we have discovered, which is the spiritual world.
It turns out that Taoists have long known about the existence of the spiritual world, which is side-by-side with the material universe. How to break through the barriers of the two worlds? According to Taoism, it is necessary to cultivate oneself and open the "holy gate" to allow consciousness or even the physical body to freely enter and exit the two worlds. The highest level of Taoist practice in their lifetime is to achieve the day-to-day physical ascension, enter the void world and obtain eternal life.
2. Today's Taoism
I know a Taoist priest, Mr. W, who is now in his forties. He left China to study in the US, and he has been living in the Bay Area, Silicon Valley, China and Taiwan, serving others with Taoist magic. Although Mr. W is not very old, he has profound skills and advanced spells. There are things he would not do or say. He is soft-spoken with clear principles. He has a comprehensive system for the universe, which can be approached from different angles for different problems, as well as making clear arguments and explanations.
He once gave me some spells for children to do finger reading experiments. Some children with superpowers could not see the spells but saw visions. Some saw bright lights, some rotating black balls or randomly-pointing arrows. This tells us that spells are also web addresses that can be linked to some specific websites to produce effects of traveling time and space, eliminating disasters, alleviating evil, and diseases.
Mr. W agrees with Mr. Hu's opinion that the purpose of his life-long practice is to achieve the day-to-day physical ascension and enter the void world, but this may not be possible in this life. After he turns 40 years old, he will begin to accept disciples, and continue to pass on the traditions passed down by the master. For thousands of years, the Taoists in the land of China have maintained their orthodoxy generation after generation, and it has continued to this day. My theory of complex spacetime was greatly inspired by him, especially where the channels of the two worlds of Yin and Yang are located. He reminded me that the fish eye of the traditional Chinese Tai Chi ball is the channel, giving me the last piece of puzzle for my theory.
3. Setting up the golden bell jar
When we do finger reading experiments, we often disturb the information field so that some spirits interfere with our experiments. For example, when Ms. T was doing MRI at Taipei Veterans General Hospital, each experiment was interrupted by low-level spirits. Miss T can see clearly in her mind's eye that sometimes a dark shadow rushed towards her, sometimes a hairy claw tried to crush her screen, and sometimes it intercepts the information she sends and bounces it back.
I asked Mr. W whether it is possible to put a golden bell jar to cover the subject during the experiment, so as not to allow external spirits to interfere with the scan. He said yes, so we tried once to have Mr. W supporting Miss T during her MRI. I saw that he had his eyes closed all the way and focused his attention on chanting mantra. The result was very good. Miss T was not disturbed by external spirits in her mind's eye. Obviously, the golden bell jar that he set worked. Taoist magic is as deep as the ocean, and Taoism lasts for thousands of years.
