Chinese Occultism Video Interview: Part 1

As part of ongoing discussions here, about misunderstandings surrounding occultism, I asked Austin Pogioli to elaborate on the esoteric side of martial arts. Since the occult could be characterized as the advanced aspects of any art form, aspects which inevitably involve an inner discipline of mind and energy, Chinese occultism is particularly interesting in its deep relationship with the martial arts. This relationship underscores the problems with the more easily formalized aspects of any art, mystical or otherwise, as well as highlighting why the occult is important for progress in any field, and, alternatively, why spirituality divorced from any disciplined feedback with nature is so often a dead end.
