But don't you see that when you make the claim that it "won't help his MA practice... won't even help his quality of life" without any practical experience, you may turn someone away from an amazingly valuable process. Further, When Li'l bunny calls it a scam because he or she hasn't been able to find it, it only points to a lack of knowledge on the subject. Look: Chi can be cultivated. I have done it. Millions of people have done it. It does not give you mystical superpowers, no, but it absolutely can benefit your practice, and moreover, it has changed my life. Science neither proves nor disproves chi, but to those who invoke science as an argument against it, you need to realize that science doesn't explain why we talk and make buildings either. If you don't "agree" with chi cultivation, than by all means, don't let me try to convince you. But what possible grounds could you have to run around turning people new to the subject off from it?
