      Great article, lots of windows opened to further explore. Great writer, love his self deprecating humor.

      An exceptionally good read! The "how to get it" part remains a mystery, of course, as does much of pinpointing what "it" even is, but the article does a great job of exploring individual pieces of the puzzle.

      Energy is both biochemical and psychophysical, vaguely delineated, widely misunderstood, elusive as grace. You know it when you got it, and even more when you don’t.

      I also loved Picard's juxtaposition of genomics and energy flows.

      “The way of the future is understanding personalized energy flows. The last ten years of personalized medicine has been taken over by genomics. The premise is that if you can sequence it you’ll know whether you’ll get sick or stay healthy. That’s where all the money goes. It’s a lucrative hypothesis, but it’s doomed to yield incomplete answers. The genome is static. Health is so dynamic.”

      Eat right and exercise, of course; but managing the charge/discharge cycles and fitting them in to daily work and life is still a huge challenge.
