You may have heard in the news about one of the latest things taking the internet by storm called a chat-bot. You can ask it pretty much anything and it will scan the internet and generate a response based on its' scan gleaning the most relevant information from millions of websites in a ridiculously quick fashion.
As I was wanting to write something for my Blog and Newsletter about the spring, wood energy (in the 5 element system we use in Shiatsu) and how it can get stuck at this time of year; in awe I decided to ask it to 'write a short 550 word article on how the wood energy (in the 5 elements system) effects the body when stuck'
In mere seconds it came up with this answer, which in my book is pretty bang on!! have a read and see if it makes sense to you!!
According to the Chinese five elements system, wood energy is associated with the liver and gallbladder meridians. These organs are responsible for maintaining the smooth flow of energy (or Qi) throughout the body. When the wood energy is stuck or blocked, it can lead to a variety of physical and emotional symptoms.
I must admit I forgot to ask it to reference Shiatsu initially in it's response, so asked it to do so, and again in mere moments it re-wrote the article to be Shiatsu specific! it's pretty remarkable! Who knows where this is going to take us, education, writers, and what world of information we may or may not receive and believe any more? But as my first foray into it, I was pretty impressed!
Rest assured I will continue to write my own blogs and newsletters (with all the usual typo's and poor grammar giving the game away!!) but it could be a really useful research tool! Let me know what you think?!
