I was just looking in the General Forum and say stuff about human powers. I personlly think that noone can have x-ray vission or telepathic. What do you think?

Well, X-ray vision isn't particularly likely because, well, our eyes can't emmit x-rays. But although I don't believe in telepathy, I'm not closed off to the possibility. We barely use the whole of our mind - and even the small fraction isn't fully understood. While I think it's just... y'know, there to make up the space, possibly something like a 'memory upgrade', something like that... till we know for sure, we can't rule out what the rest of our brain could be used for.

yea we only use 10% of our brains and that other 90% could be uber powerful. but besides telepathy, how about ki? or chi? martial artists (some of them) say it gives them super human powers. (ki would be mind chi would be body/soul for the uninformed). and i believe buddhism/hinduism may believe in it.

Meh, I don't know enough (anything beyond what you just told me, actually, lol) about them to make a judgement

o well there was this one guy who said he could channel his ki by rubbing his hands together and he did it and the cloth he was rubbing started to steam! (it was wet) pretty weird if you ask me...

Oh, that sort of stuff. Well, I've never actually seen it first-hand, so I can't say I believe it (like telepathy, I've never experienced it or known someone who has, and the TV stuff is so obviously staged it's laughable - so I'm dubious on current non-scientific claims regarding that). But, like I said, if the brain could somehow create that heat (perhaps by consciously controlling the electro-chemical impulses, or just out-right body temperature, and heating the hand up somehow?), or do something to cause that, we wouldn't know till we figured the whole thing out. So I'm open minded.

Heh, if all humans are destined to get some sort of powers like these, I don't think we'll be seeing it happen in our lifetimes ;)

I will believe that kie crap if some guy does that with no tricks. There is such thing as smoke powder.
