No Transhumanism Needed! | 10 Ordinary Humans With Extraordinary Superpowers, Plus 7 more

(Stillness in the Storm Editor) With the growing popularity of transhumanism and biohacking, a reminder of our true potential as embodiments of consciousness is helpful. 

Without new ideas and experiences, we can't imagine new ways of being. The weight of the past can block us from realizing the future—but only if we let it. 

Most people who grow up in our world today are so connected to technology they assume their biology is outdated or lacking. We have forgotten—in the main—that biology is a form of technology, far superior to what human hands have been able to develop. 



As users of technology, we tend to conclude that life can only get better through its use and to be sure there are many benefits. But we should not abandon the promise of our human potential.

While modern science and medical institutions downplay the mind and its ability to affect matter, it has been proven through fields like epigenetics that environmental factors, most especially human consciousness, greatly affects biology. Consider the placebo effect as an example of consciousness's ability to alter reality in seemingly supernatural ways.

The problem is that in order to access superhuman abilities, one must believe that it is possible. As such, this is where the power of belief can either hold us back or open new doors. 

In society today, we are indoctrinated into a belief that the human organism is flawed and greatly limited. We experience disease, aging, poor health, and a litany of other problems that lead many to conclude our biology is the cause. But consider that the mind is primary to the body. Everything we've ever done with the body first appeared as an idea within the mind. And what we believe, what we accept as truth, shapes our desires and motivations. 

Ancient peoples, most notably, Tibetan monks in the east, have a long history of demonstrating superhuman feats. Through careful training and discipline, one can actually use their mind to affect the physical world. But if these practitioners believed these things weren't possible, as most people in the western world do, then they would not have been able to develop psi abilities.

We can't gain new skills if we don't think something is possible. 

In an effort to open your mind and expand your vision, I offer the following. 

The power of the mind and imagination is well nigh limitless. We need only rediscover what our true potential really is, and then step into that by reprogramming our beliefs and making positive steps in an empowered way of living.

10 Ordinary Humans With Extraordinary Superpowers

by Elimor Bader

What would you choose if you could pick your own superpowers?

There is still so much we are learning about the human body and what we are truly capable of. These people all have their own ‘superpower’, whether it’s in their DNA or it came from practice, some of these powers we are all capable of having. When we understand this reality is a projection of the mind; the idea of mind over matter takes a whole new meaning.



The boy with ultrasound vision

This boy is able to move around like a bat or an dolphin by using sound as an indicator of his location.

Ben Underwood had his eyes removed at the age of two due to retinal cancer.

After not being able to use his eyes, he developed the ability to detect the location of objects using only his ears, also called echo location. He did this to such a degree that he can compete in several kinds of sports. Something that when compared to other blind people may seem like an impossible task.

He stated “I’m not blind, I just can’t see”. Sadly Ben Underwood died in 2009 at the age of 16 due to the same cancer that took his vision.



The man with a stomach of steel

This man isn’t afraid of what he ingests, no matter if its glass, steel or even a poison liquid.

The Frenchman, Michel Lotito has a stomach lining that is two times bigger than the average human.

This made it possible for him to eat and digest anything without harming his body. He would break the objects into small pieces and eat them with oil used as a lubricant. Miguel died a couple years back, to natural causes and not his eating habits strangely enough.



The fire people

These people are able to generate an intense amount of heat from their finger tips.

Also called monk force or Tummo, a type of meditation practiced by some Buddhists monks. It makes them generate extreme body heat.

By performing this form of meditation, it makes it possible for the practitioners to survive in extremely cold conditions without showing any type of frostbite or hypothermia.

Ironically the most famous fire-person is a Dutchman called Wim Hof, he is called the ‘Ice man’. He managed to climb mount Everest wearing only shorts.


The man who feels no pain

Nobody likes to feel pain, but what if you could turn it off for good?

Tim Cridland, also called the Zamora the king of torture, can endure any amount of pain. He makes his living using his superpower. He entertains people by walking on fire, laying on nails, swallowing swords and glass without feeling any form of pain.

Normally when we feel pain, it is an interaction between our body and mind.

Our nerves send the pain impulses to our brain where the pain gets registered. This is not the case with Cridland. His brain does not register any form of pain and this is the reason why he can perform the acts he does.



The girl with the X-ray vision

How would you use this one to your advantage?

The Russian Natalya “Natasha” Nikolayevna Demkina, does not use her X-ray vision to look through walls.

She claims to be able to help doctors diagnose patients by using her special vision, just like an X-ray machine, by looking in their bodies.

This ability started to manifest by the age of 10.

She helped her local hospital multiple times with several diagnoses.

Even though many scientists still question if her vision is genuine, no one managed to prove that she does not posses these capabilities.



The real life Mermen

Free-diving (submerging without an air tank) is a difficult sport to master. Imagine the freedom of being underwater without the constant pressure of needing to surface for air.

The Bajau-Laut fishermen are several ethnic fishermen grouped in the seas of Southeast Asia, also called sea gypsies and mermen. They have the capability to swim under water for great lengths, depths and time. They can go several minutes underwater without needing to come up for air.

They claim that mind control is the reason for their extreme capacity to stay under water. Besides submerging for an extreme time they also have the capability to see clearly under water.



The lady with eagle vision

Imagine standing on a viewpoint and you could be able to recognize a person literally from a mile away.

This is the case with Veronica Seider, a German dentist that got herself a spot in the Guinness book of world records for having the ability to see twenty times better than an average human eye.

Her microscopic vision actually makes it possible for her to identify objects from a mile distance and point out different colors pixel by pixel on a screen.


The sleepless man

Imagine all the extra time you would have if you didn’t sleep? Sleep takes up almost a third of our lives.

The Vietnamese Thai Ngoc hasn’t slept in over 43 years. Apparently a fever he suffered in 1973 made it unable for him to sleep. He got naturally used to it and so it became the cause for his new sleepless life. A normal person will show signs of delirium after 72 hours of no sleep and can cause serious health issues.

But for some reason Thai can function normally to a degree. He states that after all these sleepless years he is starting to see and feel the effects.



The human calculator

This would come in handy when you need to work with numbers.

The New Yorker Scott Flansburg can subtract, add, multiply, divide and find square and cube roots almost instantly in his head with complete accuracy.

In 2001 and 2003 he broke the Guinness world record and got listed as the fastest human calculator.

He added within 15 seconds the same number to itself more times than someone with a calculator could do.

Today he is the annual host and ambassador for national math day.



The human camera

Photographic memory is an amazing ability many people do possess.

The Englishman Stephen Wiltshire works as an architectural artist.

He was born mute but he said his first word when his teacher took away one of his drawings at the age of 9.

His hobby and passion for drawing led him to discover his great talent for detail.

He has such an impeccable photographic memory he can look at a skyline once and completely duplicate it in a drawing into the smallest details. Have a look at his mind-blowing work.

17 People With Real Life Super Powers

by Top Info Post

Have you ever dreamed about having super powers? Most likely if you are anything like me you have fantasized about having extraordinary abilities such as super strength or moving objects with your mind.
We have found 17 examples of people who claim to have developed some extraordinary abilities. Perhaps we are evolving into a world of zero limits.

1. X-RAY VISION


Natasha Demkina is a Russian woman who claims to be able to see into peoples bodies. Just like an X-ray machine she is able to detect problems inside of people and diagnose them.
Natasha was a normal kid up until the age of ten according to her mother. At that age her abilities began to manifest.
I was at home with my mother and suddenly I had a vision. I could see inside my mother’s body and I started telling her about the organs I could see. Now, I have to switch from my regular vision to what I call medical vision. For a fraction of a second, I see a colorful picture inside the person and then I start to analyze it. says Demkina.

2. MAGNETIC BODY

Liew Thow Lin is a man from Malaysia who can stick metal objects into his body. Although scientists cannot detect anything going on with the magnetics of his body he is able to hold and balance a unique amount of metal objects on his skin.

3. SUPER HUMAN MEMORY

Daniel Temmet is able to memorize incredible amounts of information. For example he was able to recite Pi up to 22,514 digits in five hours and nine minutes on 14 March 2004.
Most Savants are not able to explain how they accomplish their amazing abilities but Daniel is different. He explains that in his mind every whole number up to 10,000 has its own unique texture, color, shape and feel. This has helped him to remember things visually much easier then the average person.
In his experience the visual image of 289 as very ugly, 333 is particularly attractive, and pi is beautiful. Perhaps this is how the frequency of numbers and numerology work with the logical world.

4. NO NEED FOR SLEEPING

Imagine what life would be like if you didn’t need to sleep? I know we would miss out on a lot of fun dreams but what could we accomplish? Well Al Herpin was a man who knew what that was like.
Al Herpin claimed to have a rare type of insomnia where he didn’t need to sleep and at one point in his life had apparently been awake for over 10 years. This attracted the attention of medical professionals who investigated further.
They found no bed, or sleeping place in Al Herpin’s home. He claimed to go to work and then sit in his rocking chair reading until it was time to go to work the next day. He was found to be in good health and also lived to the old age of 94.

5. STOMACH OF STEEL

Michel Lotito was known for his ability to eat non-digestable objects without any bad effects. He was seen to consume glass, metal, rubber and other objects. Do not try this at home.

6. SUPER LANGUAGE ABILITIES

The average person on earth is estimated to only be able to speak 1.69 languages. Harold Williams, on the other hand was able to speak 58 different languages.
Harold was a normal kid until the age of 7 when he describes having an ‘Explosion in his brain’. After that he learned latin, which is the root to many languages, and couldn’t get enough.
He spent his life traveling the world going region by region learning all the languages he could.

7. EAGLE VISION (20X MORE ACUTE THAN THE REST OF US)

Veronica Seider holds the world record for being able to see the smallest object without assistance from technology.
In 1972 the University of Stuttgart, in then West Germany, reported that one of their students; Veronica Seider had a visual acuity 20 times better than average person. For example she could identify people at a distance of more than a mile away (1.6 km).
The typical person would need a set of binoculars to be able to accurately accomplish that.

8. SONAR VISION (LIKE BATS OR DOLPHINS)

Ben Underwood is an extraordinary person with the ability to see using Human Echolocation. Ben lost his eyes to cancer and is completely blind. However, using a series of clicking noises Ben is able to navigate the world around him.
Check out this awesome video about Ben transcending limitations and living a regular life.

9. HIGH PAIN TOLERANCE

Now we have heard of people using meditation to ease the pains of child birth but Tim Cridland has decided to use his high tolerance for pain as a means of performance and entertainment.
There is nothing abnormal about me physically. Everything I’ve done, I’ve trained myself to do. I’d say what I’m doing is demonstrating some kind of extreme examples of what you can do with your mind and combining that with your body. You could take the same techniques I use to overcome pain and use them in your own life to inspire you to persevere against the pains in life we all have to deal with.” Tim Cridland – Speaking in Faze Magazine.

10. COMMUNICATING WITH ANIMALS

Kevin Richardson is a South African animal behaviorist who had been accepted into several lion prides and clans of hyenas.
He has broken almost every safety rule in the book and says he focuses more on intuition than traditional knowledge when it comes to his interactions with these wild animals.
Imagine a world where we all lived in harmony with the animals around us.

11. SENSORY ABILITIES AND THE RECOGNITION OF MUSIC

Arthur Lintgen is an american physicist who can look at phonograph records and recognize the song. He says he is able to look at the grooves and recognize the song recorded. He can also tell if the song is being played loud or quiet based on his ability to focus in on the little details of the records.

12. HUMAN COMPUTER

Shakuntala Devi was a woman born in India with the natural ability to calculate numbers beyond normal human abilities. Even at the very young age of 6 and without formal training she was demonstrating her abilities to calculate and memorize in the University of Mysore.
She has been tested many times and has been able to do all of these calculations in her head. For example when she was tested at The University of California Berkley where she was asked to accurately calculate the cube root of 61,629,875, and the seventh root of 170,859,375 she passed with flying colors.

13. PHOTOGRAPHIC MEMORY

Stephen Wiltshire is a British architectural artist who can look at a landscape once and then draw it with perfect accuracy.
He frequently draws entire cities from memory, based on double, brief helicopter rides. For example, he produced a detailed drawing of four square miles of London after a single helicopter ride above that city. His nineteen-foot-long drawing of 305 square miles of New York City is based on a single twenty-minute helicopter ride” – Wikipedia.

14. LONG DISTANCE RUNNING (100 MILES, JUST FOR FUN)

There is a group of natives in northwestern Mexico called the Tarahumara People who are known for their ability to run very long distances. The Tarahumara word that they call themselves is Rarámuri which means “runners on foot” or “those who run fast”.
They have reported to run 200 miles (320 km) in one session typically over a period of two days.
This isn’t the only case of people being able to run crazy long distances. There is a man named Dean Karnazes who ran 350 miles (560 km) in 80 hours and 44 minutes without sleep in 2005.

15. ICEMAN

Wim Hof is a man in his 50s who has pushed the limits of cold all over the world. In the past 35 years have faced all kinds of challenges and holds 20 guinness world records.
He climbed Mount Kilimanjaro and Mount Everest in shorts, broke records by swimming under ice water, and ran half a marathon in the desert without drinking.
Wim uses a breathing meditation technique that makes it so he doesn’t feel the cold in the same way we do. He claims it has enhanced his immune system and that he doesn’t suffer any bad effects from this ice dips.

16. SUPER HUMAN REFLEXES

Isao Machii is a Japanese Iaido master who has the quickest reflexes in the world. He holds many world records for his quick sword skills. Check out the video below to see him attempt to cut a shot BB in half.

17. THE INDIAN WHO DOESN’T NEED FOOD OR WATER TO SURVIVE

An Indian holy man has amazed a team of doctors by not eating or drinking anything for two weeks.
Prahlad Jani, 83, who says he has not had a bite to eat for 70 years, was put under constant surveillance to test his astonishing claims by a team of 30 military medical staff.
During a 15 day stay in a hospital in the city of Ahmedabad, India — he astounded doctors by not eating, drinking or going to the bathroom.
We still do not know how he survives,’ neurologist Sudhir Shah said at the end of the experiment. ‘It is still a mystery what kind of phenomenon this is.
Prahlad Jani says he was blessed by a goddess at a young age, which gave him special powers.
During the observation, which ended last Thursday, the doctors took scans of Jani’s organs, brain and blood vessels, and conducted tests on his heart, lungs and memory capacity.
If Jani does not derive energy from food and water, he must be doing that from energy sources around him, sunlight being one,” Shah said. “As medical practitioners, we cannot shut our eyes to possibilities, to a source of energy other than calories. –Ref.
Prahlad Jani explains that he receives his nourishment from a substance that is produced from a hole in the roof of his mouth. This substance is called amrit or amrita in numerous yogic texts. Amrit is a Sanskrit word that literally means ‘without death’.
More commonly amrit has been translated as the “divine nectar” or “drink of the gods”. Many advanced yogis and sun gazers also claim to have experienced the amrit substance, which is thought to be secreted by the pineal and pituitary glands when activated by advanced yoga practices. – Ref.
Perhaps the limits we think we have are just in our minds.
