Oh, I'm sure there are ways to do all kinds of things and they will be described in terms of 'energy levels' or whatever. But they're using fancy emotive language, not proper scientific talk xD I'm sure that some people can exert forces on others in ways where the explanation is not immediately apparent.

I mean, go right ahead and find out more about this stuff. But don't ask your physics teacher to describe it with the same words as the person who taught it to you. :)

If you believe everything you read, better not read.

Are you in school? If so, why on earth aren't you studying physics?! D:

Ok, what you are talking about is "chi." In martial arts terminology, that is basically "life energy." While marital artists may disagree, it is NOT the same thing a scientist would refer to as "energy." At least it is not measurable with scientific instruments. Having studied martial arts for several years, I say with the upmost respect - "chi" is closer to magic than to the scientific definition of energy.

Horses move each other without touching. They do this by communicating in a language we cannot easily understand. If you are a "nervous" person, and I am an intimidating person - when I walk towards you, you would likely move out of the way. That is not energy, that is attitude and non-verbal communication.

With training, you can train a horse to move off body language. With practice, you can move many untrained horses with body language/attitude.

If you devote your life to mastering the art, and have the innate talent, you could also probably learn to do what the samurai (sensei, sifu, etc.) does. Honestly, I believe you will find moving horses through body language an easier thing to learn. :)
