Cadetak47 I doubt very seriously, that with all the data being presented on the internet is the government interested in kidnapping anyone. If anything, it is more like they are prepared to present the truth, albeit slowly, so as to develop social awareness on the grand scale.

Any thoughts?


The government would probobly try to contain the knowledge of the existence of physic powers. They did it with aliens and UFOs(if you believe that). The government would also feel threatened by phsycics.

It's like how some people are afraid of monsters under the bed...They don't exist. It's all in their heads.

Just looking at the history of the Vatican, which in relation to history was a world leader we see the apparent existence of state sponsored Mystics. Every kind of power short of raising the dead is expressed in relation to the Saints. To be honest the governments position on the whole situation is probably along the lines of "Been there done that."

This is in my humble opinion....

Any thoughts?

Well I believe in Telekinesis.. I think TK is like, walking... only we havent been taught how to use it at an early age. It's just another part of our potential knowledge that we dont use. What, dont humans use like 17% of their brains or something?

And uhh, leave the X-Man kid alone... you never know, he may be telling the truth wink2.gif

That's a common misconception....We use much more.

"It is a myth that we only use 10% of our human brain."

It is common to hear this statement, alarmingly even from a few people who label themselves as "scientific" or as researchers.

In actuality, such a comment as above, is more misleading itself than the so-called myth of unused brain potential.  

Think.

You no more use 90% of your brain potential than you use 90% of your muscle potential all of the time.  

To say that we use all of our brain, would be like saying Arnold Schwarzenegger or Lou Firigno had as 90 pound teenagers reached the pinnacle of their muscular development.


You no more use all of your brain all of the time than you use 100% of your lung capacity sitting at your computer keyboard.

You no more use all of your brain all of the time than you use all of your car all of the time; that you always drive at the full potential of your Honda; that you always drive at the top speed of your car; that your trunk and seats are always filled to capacity; that you have even figured out and daily employ every single way in which you could use your car.

To say that we use all of our brain ignores the fact that you keep losing your car keys all the time.

To say that we use all of our brain ignores the fact that you couldn't remember where you left your car in the parking garage- even though this is well within your brain potential.

Sir John Eccles has stated his feelings on the infinite potential of the human brain, and he won the Noble prize.

Such a statement that "We use all of our brain all of the time" or "It is a myth that we only use 10% of our brain" are both misleading and unhelpful uninspiring skeptical crumbs with barely a grain of truth- As well as not even being accurate statements regarding usage of the human brain.

Humans have an unlimited capacity to learn. Unlike computers, no human brain has ever said: "Hard drive full."

A simple look at brain scans will show us that the brain modulates dramatically from one moment to the next in regards to its activity and usage. Here it is then, on the screen of Functional MRI machines and Pet scans, incontrovertible evidence that we do not use all of our brain all of the time.

To say "we use all of our brain all of the time" says nothing about the potential of human intelligence, creativity, and problem solving. Such a skeptical rebuttal of the vast potential of the human think machine implies that we have reached our limits of brain potential- probably the most harmful dead end notion of all. We haven't even gotten close.

Our frontal lobes have been culturally and socially lobotomized. At this stage of evolution, we are simply still Apes With Pencils.

That's actually very good news.

So, as it turns out, to say that "We only use 10% of our brain, only 10% of our brain potential"- this is actually an infinitely optimistic, as well as a considerably reasonable and thoughtful perspective of the possibilities that reside inside our craniums.


Research Report
Dormancy of the Human Brain
Dormant Brain Research and Development Laboratory
T.D.A. Lingo, Director

The human brain is only 10% functional, at best.
The first to outline this theory, later proved a fact by others, was Australian Neurology Nobel Laureate Sir John Eccles. (Lecture: University of Colorado, University Memorial Center Boulder, July 31, 1974.) "The brain indicates its powers are endless."

In England, John Lorber did autopsies on hydrocephalics. This illness causes all but the 1/6th inch layer of brain tissue to be dissolved by acidic spinal fluid. He tested the IQ's of patients before and during the disease. His findings showed that IQ remained constant up to death. Although over 90% of brain tissue was destroyed by the disease, it had no impact on what we consider to be normal intelligence.

Russian neurosurgeon Alexandre Luria proved that the 1/3 bulk of frontal lobes are mostly dormant. He did this by performing ablation experiments on persons. He gave physiological and psychological tests before, cut out parts and whole frontal lobes, the re-tested after. His conclusion: removal of part or all of frontal lobes causes no major change in brain function, (some change in mood alteration). The frontal lobes are mostly dormant, asleep. (Luria, A.R. "Frontal Lobes and the Regulation of Behavior." In: K.H. Pribram and A.R. Luria, Editors, Psychophysiology of the Frontal Lobes. New York, and London, Academic Press, 1973)

Finally, the human brain contains 10 billion neurons, mostly in the outer layer of brain cortex. the function of these currently dominant cells is fairly clear. but the brain also contains 120 billion glial cells. Aside from some secondary nurturing of neurons, the primary function of the glia is not clear. What big bang mirical awaits mankind within these mysteries?

Today, most would agree without argument that the potential of the human brain is infinite. Thus, to state that a person uses 10%, 5%, or even 1% of their potential brain capacity (infinity) is overly generous.

The point is this: There is no dispute among honestly rational experts about the latent potential of the human think box. There is only friendly dispute about how much and what still awaits us, patiently to be self-discovered between each set of ears. Hence, the wisdom of intuitive folksay was correct: "The human brain is only 10% functional." John Eccles thinks that number is too high. "How can you calculate a percentage of infinity?"

Maybe that will help you a bit Enuf3!

I remember the line from the Hindu scripture, the Bhagavad-Gita. Vishnu is trying to persuade the Prince that he should do his duty and to impress him takes on his multi-armed form and says: "Now I am become Death, the destroyer of worlds." I suppose we all thought that, one way or another." - J. Robert Oppenheimer.

I just have a question for Triad!
Do you think people will get any better with abilities than this Micro-PK test?
I'm just curious!

I believe it is real but not all the people who claim to do it can. There are people that can. For example I can do very very little but at least its something.Just dont give up. grin2.gif

Thanks Moro.

And Bosanchero, yes I do believe telekensis is real.

As far as these abilities go it could very well be possible!
But i'm not gonna sway either way! There is alot about the brain we dont understand and, hidden within these things we do not know about our brain may be the key to these, abilities just waiting to be unlocked!

Any thoughts?

This is how I see it that part of the brain is like a room with a locked door and we all have the key we just have to find the room. original.gif

Another good way to look at it! Mostly if you are trying to learn these abilities first hand by experimenting!
I on the other hand would rather know alot more about it first!

I agree with the both of you. I heard somewhere that telekinesis could be as easy as walking if it were taught at an early age. I dont see how that works. What do you think?
