Targets must be sealed using tamper-proof methods--"irreversible" is the Chinese. term. 3. There must be continuous, on-site, multi-angle observation by experimenters or by video tape. These requirements have led researchers to believe that their reported results are.real, and that the effect is PK acting on the target. When the use of modern instruments becomes unavoidable, it is believed that the experimental protocol must be arranged so that the subject is away from the instruments and without knowledge of when or how the surveillance and analysis of targets is performed. 4. Psi as a personally developable skill It is assumed as a matter of course in P.R.C. that psychic ability, as well as other benefits, can be developed through the practice of qigong. In the West, by contrast, the serious literature largely ignores training and stresses conditions at the time of the experiment. Although investigations of apparitions, poltergeists, hauntings, and survival of death (including mediumship, channeling, and reincarnation) are not formally banned in P.R.C., these topics are often considered to be sensitive, and thus are not reported as being formally studied because of concern about their ideological inappropriateness under the compelling guidelines of Marxist materialism. Moreover, researchers are comparatively ignorant concerning these psychic research topics. Some experimenters briefly investigated such areas earlier, but soon became targets for attack by Mr. Yu Guangyuan and others. It seems that no one has mentioned these topics openly since then. - References12 Ao Dalun (1986). Realities and the myths around us. Qigong Yu Kexue (Qigong and Science), No. 3.

Later, these statements may be quoted or paraphrased in an unrestricted journal and, in this way, become available for quotation in writings intended for foreign publication. In China, papers abstracted in another journal keep their original titles unless otherwise indicated. In the present list, references are in Chinese unless notated "(In English)". The reader will notice the absence of Chinese research papers in foreign journals. Such papers would require official approval before submission, and, for the present, such approval is not likely to be forthcoming.
