It's widley known and prooved that we use about 10% of our brain. People that reahears this (like experts, that have done alike for decades) say that in the future, long in the future, we may be able to controll all our mind. Controll everything. Our breathing, our movements, our pheromones, even our healing. The bodyheat. Everything.

There are people now that say they can cook a fish, just using their hands. Because they can controll their bodyheat, and concentrate it, or maybe just heat it ina particular place - now their hand. If it's prooven? Well, had an (tiny) article in the papers about this. But who believes such things, really? Which 'sane' people would believe alike...? Or is that just the thought of the society...?

Um, I believe it's possible to move things with the mind and the like. I don't think I could do it, or anyone I know could do it. But I think some people do have extra power. But I think it would be more common for people to be able to just 'influence' the movement of objects and stuff. Like, if a ball is already moving they could influence it to turn even if according to science it wouldn't (or couldn't?). It's an exciting thought that we could have any kind of Chi/Psi/the Force/prana/magic potential inside us...

Oh and what is prana?


I could be mistaken, but I think prana is the East Indian term for energy, chi, etc.

I definitely believe that things like Chi all the way to telekinesis is possible, but so few people discover how to manipulate energy that it might seem impossible to the vast majority of people who have never seen/felt it. Proof to me that we are capable of manipulating the energy around us (without using any other aid except our own bodies) is the practice of Reiki. I train a martial art called Ninjutsu and since it is pretty rough i have managed to snap a few things out of place, like bits in my wrist or even a very painful twist of my knee. The joints basically snapped out of place and back into the right position immediately but it still doesn't spare you the pain or the innevitable swelling and bruising that can go on for an annoyingly long time (as i've learnt in the instances before i started training, i'm very accident prone). Your average doctor can't do much but maybe immobilise the joint, tell you to put ice on it and to rest. My sensei in the current dojo i'm in is a practitioner of reiki and with a short session around the problem area the swelling went down completely in just a few days and i was ready to train by next week. It was remarkable.

Another reason for my belief in our ability to manipulate the energy around us is also how one type of energy can be converted into other types.

However, I definitely do not believe people are/were capable of shooting lighting out their fingertips or other such \"mainstream\" perceptions of magic :P

The dream is alive...

okay, a few clarifications: Prana, as far as I can tell, is what \"vampires\" need. The theory is that it's a form of life-force that they just don;t manufacture on their own (or at least, not enough), a lot like diabetes.

also, the original idea of the topic was maybe misrepresented. I mainly just wanted to know what this particular sub-genre of people believed; that is, whether my theory makes sense to people.

the theory, as I've tried to explain it before, is this: tehre is no \"prana\", magick, Force, chi, etc. these are, like idols, attempts to understand facets of a whole that is beyond comprehension.

there is a force beyond the current capability of physics to explain, that humans are capable of manipulating. this is scientifically proven. My thought is that this force is limited only by one's understanding of it. for example, a student of Psi might think that it is possible to create psi bubbles, so he makes psi bubbles. a master of Qi'Gong meditation might think it is possible to concentrate Chi in a circular shape- these are exactly the same thing, done two different ways. A master of Psi might not think it is possible to use his Psi to heal, while a Reiki master uses it for this every day. It's the discipline to which you bind yourself that determines what you can do.

I've also the same thought about religion; every religion is just a facet of the same universal God. the greeks, for example, believed that all the gods were, ultimately, the sons, daughters, and so on of the original, Cronos. therefore, each god is just a part of the original whole. some of them were evn admittedly human-affected, like the Nymphs or Hercules.

I've never believed in one god... doesn't seem logical. 1=1 and so on. 1 doesn't = 2 or 100, if you don't add something to 1... (yes, I've only studied math the last week...)

About that engery it could be different tho... but I don't believe in 'energy'. Not that term. Atm I just got theories, but the term energy just seems... wrong. A word for something without a name, but humans have to get names for everything... if nothing else, to say it's mine...
Energy seem like a word alike, by human standards, but it's not even close. Not really.
