    There is a big difference between a possible stop i.e finger and a likely stop i.e CNS, Brain, or heart.

    This is just starting to argue for the sake of arguing. Find where you agree and move forward.

    I think this is actually pretty important to the discussion of energy. Particularly for a belief that the energy sites remote damage to the nervous system. What is likely and possible vary greatly with the situation and shot placement. How badly can you miss the heart and effect a stop. If you aim for the heart and actually hit the shooting hand of an isoceles stance, do you still get a stop. If you miss the heart and shot low, do you still a stop by some wave propagating through the body and causing nerve injury. If you can stop by interrupting the cns without a hit to the cns, then what is vital gets adjusted again.

    This started to get personal on Pege 8, and it has gone on long enough.
