Why do people keep saying that things are impossible? Things like controlling the elements and other powers. First of all people have been doing rain dances and weather spells for thousands of years. In Tibet there is a person who can change his body into a vapor like substance and travel very fast. There are people called the Lung Po Runners (spelled wrong I think) that can control their body so that they are almost weightless. And still other people who live in sub-zero climates and control their energy so that they don't need coats or firs. Who are we to say that these things are impossible when people have been doing it for thousands of years? "Impossible" isn't even a word for me. Humans have amazing power, we just forgot that is all. Be nice with your posts please.

Enduring the elements, long distance running (no, it's not weightlessness, it's overcoming fatigue, muscle spasms, etc. I have read of this too), etc. is not the same as creating fireballs, controlling lightning, etc. Rain dances have been in existence for thousands of years and while on the surface they appear to be to bring rain and comfort, and yes, that is what they are believed to do, they primarily are the acts of desperate people seeking some sort of comfort.
People tend to put a limit on what they can and cannot do things that don't make logical sense are obviously impossible hence that mentality there are monks who can hypnotize snakes with their body movements have you seen the new karate kid with the cobra and the monk? thats what im talking about
there is a saying i like to hear its from coach carter "our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure"
I sincerely believe that it is the way things are worded that cause the skeptisisms. For example: if you say "That guy lit a paper wad on fire using nothing but his mind!!"; people will see you and either think you are nuts, or sincerly misguided. Now, if you say "That man used his chi to heat up paper on the ground to a point at which it lit up!"; people (well, those who believe in magick anyway) will not say much other than "Yeah" or "Cool". So, just think about the way things are said, rather than the idea that is being translated. Consider these "weightless" persons: as opposed to them "levitating" is it maybe possible that they used their chi to overcome the force of gravity by pushing it up under themselves? The evidence that I have seen for many of these feats lies with Dynamo Jack and some of these other [ true ] "superhuman" videos. No, people didn't forget, but in this day and age, there is a more proper and even scientific term for what these people [are] do [ing] .
hmmm.. Sometimes its pissing me off when I see people marking something "impossible".. Its possible in many other ways... And If we call something impossible we break believe of many people and then they arent able to do it. The world is so big and it have many secrets
what people have not discovered yet.. Dont bite me for that its just only my point of view ^__^
Well said brown tiger. I heard a sentence once that sums up my thoughts perfectly (for this post anyway) "magic is just science we haven't discovered yet." Magic and science are just words to me. Power is power. Who cares what it is called. I chose not to limit myself with the word impossible. And for people who don't believe me that is just fine too. I am not looking to recruit anybody here. Just sharing my point of view. Thanks for the feed back. All these responses and it has only been an hour. LOL
Impossible means scientists ain't proven it yet. For example a human can fly in a plane but not without technology. This universe is more than just planet earth. As one of my science teachers said impossible is just a horror story they tell little kids
