*note this is my personal philosophy/ideal - apologies to anyone who thinks it would fit better in the science or religous forums. I consider this my style of "practical philosophy" I hear ppl talking about how we all have natural telepathic abilities. Religous ppl claim that their faith gives them power. I know that we can be more then we are now, but we can't indulge in fantasies. The amazing potentil of ppl is worth talking about - how in times of crisis we can achieve super-human strength, how we can train our memories to be near photographic, how ppl who are autistic can do amazing feats of mathematics in their heads. Even how the placebo effect demonstrates the healing power we can posses. Monks and other dedicated people can achieve amazing things (all of which have been documented thoroughly by scientists) - they can enter trances where they only breathe a couple of times an hour and their hearts rarely beat. Tibetan monks can sit naked in the snow for an entire night, as wet blankets are draped around them - and as each blanket is dried by their body heat it is replaced by another wet one! We can deny pain, can achieve enormous feats of endurance, in times of trauma it is even rumoured that our minds can slow our perception of time! This is the true power and potential of humanity. You can work at guessing your Zener cards. You can pray to the God/s of your choice to look after you and give you what you desire. Me? I'm going to look into what I've already seen other people being able to do - the true miracles that noone seems interested in.
