Challenge to experienced

There are many of us who have reached a level in our practice where we find things to be impossible. I haven't heard much about being able to move things with your mind, but how many of us don't believe that we can achieve that? Watch this video, the whole series if you want to question the validity of the program.

Now tell me what you think? Have some of us closed our mind to seemingly impossible things that may still be possible? Remember when you thought that what you can do now was impossible to you? I'm curious how many of us have become more awakened by this video and what we may be able to do. I have!

P.S. the video includes a guy who moves things with his mind. I don't believe it to be a trick.

From watching the video, I can definitely say that it was convincing. The guy did appear to be able to bend & move objects with solely his mind. Even the tests done with the brainwaves was outstanding. And as there have been studies of this field in the past, as the video mentioned, the show did have compelling evidence.

However, this is television and we must be cautious of believing what we watch. The episode could very well of been falsified, the brainwaves part as well. Just by doing a quick search on Google you can come across this video explaining how the episode was a hoax.

It is tempting to believe in such a phenomenon, but one must always use common sense beforehand. For example, had this of been true why wasn't it scientifically documented?

It is being submitted to the scientific community. Your link directs us to a naysayer which whom provides no evidence to the contrary... the link to the scientific document sent to the science community is:

While I cannot definitively explain it, I would point out that he is wearing long pants and long sleeves, and many of his gestures correspond to street magicians methods of distraction - with the metal objects, it could easily be magnets and the like that he has concealed and developed a method of activating.

But, frankly, there is much that remains unexplained.

I remain skeptical, and maintain that nothing has actually been proven by this video, but - it's interesting.

the human brain is the most complex machine in all of creation. to say what is and is not possible like you are the source of all is arrogance of the highest caliber. there are still wonders out there as rewards for those brave and foolish enough to believe they can and should try

He is a magician by trade which does leave a lot of room for scepticism. I do believe he is really doing it for one reason alone: when I performed specific tasks that required a lot of energy, I could feel the energy in the front part of my brain, the same place where they stated this energy was peaking from. I have meditated and performed magick while paying attention to where in my brain this was coming from and it was again in the front of my brain. This was all before watching this video, years ago in fact. Therefore, when science seems to have possibly found what that is, I am self encouraged to believe it to be true. I will definitely follow where this goes and not simply dismiss it.

Warwind, what of the circulatory system? What of the brain of a dolphin, or whale? What of the complexities of the composition of the earth, including its tides, eco systems, it's mantle, and it's core? What about the mysteries that surround the composition of the sun? What about the complexity of a black hole? What about the vast and intensely complicated nature of an atom, and all that it can compose?

To suggest the human brain is the epitome of complexity in the face of all that is part of creation would be, in my opinion, the definition of arrogance

Further, perhaps you misunderstand. I do not suggest that the possibility of anything be turned away out of hand. I suggest instead that one approach everything with skepticism. I suggest that one must endeavor to disprove all possibilities in the face of charlatans and con artists. To cling desperately to every belief simply because it is possible is not brave - children cling to fairy tales, after all, to comfort themselves when they are frightened. I pose instead that it is far more noble to step out of one's comfort, and question the foundations of faith I suggest that it is far more brave to shake one's self free of the beliefs that are safe, and may well provide hope, in favor of perhaps finding a more fulfilling truth.

I have never known a person with such a gift that felt obliged to make show of it for public fancy.
