The Emperor asked: “In the beginning of one’s life, what is the foundation? What is the shield? What is lost that people will die? What is gained that people will live?”

Qi Bo answered: “The mother is the foundation. The father is the shield. One who loses the spirit will die. One who gains the spirit will live.”

The Emperor asked: “What is spirit?”

Qi Bo answered: “The qi and blood have been harmonious. The ways of the nutritive qi and defensive qi are open. The five zang-organs have been formed. The spirit has resided in the heart. The yang soul and the yin soul have been generated. Under these preconditions, healthy people will appear.”
