I'm not asking you if it makes sense, I'm telling you it doesn't.
Used to. Stopped doing it because it wasn't doing anything beneficial for me at all.
I agree it doesn't make sense, that doesn't mean it isn't a real phenomena.
Electricity doesn't make sense, no-one knows exactly what it is, the description some kind of energy can also be applied to chi.
BTW science can sort of measure chi energy as a secondary effect, similar to neuro imaging and blood flow or electrical activity against cognition, in chi's case the secondary measure is heat movement within the body, kind of like Predator. Not sure if there's been any scientific study of this using this.
Well if it wasn't doing much for you perhaps you were doing it wrong, maybe it might be beneficial to get a better teacher.
I've not been doing it for about 3 months, but my teacher was an authentic dude from China, taught by the 9th generation Grandmaster of Chen style Tai Chi. I hope to pick it up again soon. But the truth is I'm nowhere compared to what I've seen with shaolin monks.
