What is Prana/Kundalini "energy" really (as related to deep breathing)?

When I breath deeply or rapidly and concentrate on “pulling in energy” my body gets “tingly” and after 20min to an hour of this the energy reaches an orgasmic threshold.
At this point it feels very pleasurable and strangely “paralyzing”, like my whole body is pulsing with energy. My mind operates totally normal and if I’m sick with a cold, all pain and discomfort goes away during this “energy orgasm”. This experience will last about 2-5min, but will leave me comfortably relaxed and tranquil after it’s over.
This is not some “New Agey” babble I read somewhere, it’s an actual thing I’ve experienced many times and have even showed someone else how to do once.
Indian texts have talked about Kundalini and Prana for a long time. This seems like what that is.
Unlike people who claim to “read auras” with a 60-80% accuracy (enough to give them wiggle room when they’re wrong and their answers are vague enough for people to infer them as “right”), this is a real physical phenomenon that I can (and I’m sure many others who have read basic Indian Breathing techniques can) produce in myself 100% of the time, if I have an hour to set aside.
So, Scientifically… how do you explain this?

  1. Western medicine doesn’t have an energy system associated with it, so it doesn’t have any means to explain the phenomena. It’s a good example of one of the limitations of western medicine. For example, consider masturbating. According to Western Medicine, masturbating extensively doesn’t really do you any harm. In Eastern Medicine, however, you are constantly depleting your prana/chi, which means that you will age quicker, among other things as well. Western Medicine can’t really scientifically explain energetic phenomena because it doesn’t have a physical basis.
    Eastern medicine, like traditional Chinese medicine, calls it chi. In Ayurvedic medicine and yoga it’s called prana. Both concepts are very similar and intimately tied with breath. It’s definitely real, and Chinese and Ayurvedic medicine is actually fairly advanced and widespread. And yes, I’ve had this experience myself as well.
    You could do a simple scientific experiment (a blind experiment if you want to). Compare the effects of ginseng (something that stimulates the production of prana/chi), to a placebo (something that has stimulant effects similar to ginseng–like another adaptogen–but doesn’t produce prana/chi), and evaluate the psychological data between the groups who took the placebo and those that took the ginseng. Most likely, those that took ginseng would probably feel more inspired/creative (a product of having more prana/chi) than the placebo, among other things. That’s just my idea for a study…
