The word ch'i literally means 'gas' or 'ether', and was used in ancient China to denote the vital breath or energy animating the cosmos. It is said that "The 'life force' was simply the electric force." even in the present science. In the dawn of the 20th century, Planck discovered quantum of action an element "h" and then Freud, too, "unconsciousness" by dream interpretation. In 1924, the German psychiatrist Hans Berger discovered that the human brain generates electrical impulses that fluctuate rhythmically. In succession, the Uncertainty Principle was established by Wemer Heisenberg. In 1955, Tomio Hirai clarified the specific 9-waves that vibrate during Zen meditation, and at the beginning of the 1970's, Magnetoencephalograph(MEG) was developed in America, so in 1995, Kazuo Sasaki found out 9-waves by utilizing it. Since the end of 1970's, the scientific research for the Qigong was started in China. Under the influence of the information, the scientific measurement of the Qigong has been carried out also in Japan. We understood "Qi" what has low frequency undulation by the measurement. I suggested " EEGs are electromagnetic radiation. "Here I describe the "Qi" using Planck's constant "h" that is the core of the quantum theory.
