Russell Targ is a physicist who spent several decades working in a US government program exploring “remote viewing” – an apparently anomalous extended characteristic of the mind. Targ is convinced the effect is real. This talk was originally slated as part of a TEDx event in Hollywood in 2013, but the organization pulled their support of the event when they learned about the subjects.

Wim Hof discusses discusses the ability of our minds and bodies to influence our immune system.
Wim Hof is a Dutch world record holder, more commonly known as the Iceman, due to his unique ability to withstand extreme cold. He is best known for his twenty world records including the longest ice bath, staying immersed in ice for over 1 hour and 13 minutes. He describes his ability as being able to “turn his own bodies thermostat up” through the power of his mind. Some of his other impressive feats are climbing to 7.3km altitude at Mount Everest wearing nothing but shorts. He’s also completed a full marathon above the polar circle in Finland wearing, yes you guessed it, nothing but shorts. Just through the power of his mind, he was able to run a marathon through the Namib desert without water. It’s been scientifically proven that Wim is able to directly influence his Autonomic Nervous and Immune System.
TEDxAmsterdam – Wim Hof is a Dutch world record holder, adventurer and daredevil, commonly nicknamed the Iceman for his ability to withstand extreme coldness. He holds nine world records including a world record for longest ice bath. Wim broke his previous world record by staying for 1 hour 13 minutes and 48 seconds immersed in ice at Guinness World Records 2008. Hof describes his ability to withstand extreme cold temperatures as being able to turn his own thermostat up by using his brain.

So this is for those who haven’t seen it yet.
If reality that exists all around would be represented by Leonardo da Vinci’s Mona Lisa, then what our eyes can perceive from this reality would be represented by a tiny dot on the painting and that would still be a complement.
To tetrachromatic artist Concetta Antico, the world is, “like a mosaic of color.”ConcettaAntico.com
– This Woman Sees 100 Times More Colors Than The Average Person (Popular Science, Oct 13 ,2014):
To tetrachromatic artist Concetta Antico, the world is, “like a mosaic of color.”
When Concetta Antico looks at a leaf, she sees much more than just green. “Around the edge I’ll see orange or red or purple in the shadow; you might see dark green but I’ll see violet, turquoise, blue,” she said. “It’s like a mosaic of color.”
Antico doesn’t just perceive these colors because she’s an artist who paints in the impressionist style. She’s also a tetrachromat, which means that she has more receptors in her eyes to absorb color. The difference lies in Antico’s cones, structures in the eyes that are calibrated to absorb particular wavelengths of light and transmit them to the brain. The average person has three cones, which enables him to see about one million colors. But Antico has four cones, so her eyes are capable of picking up dimensions and nuances of color—an estimated 100 million of them—that the average person cannot. “It’s shocking to me how little color people are seeing,” she said.
“You might see dark green but I’ll see violet, turquoise, blue. It’s like a mosaic of color.”
For over 20 years, scientists at Stanford Research Institute (SRI) carried out SECRET investigations into ESP and psychic phenomena and our ability to experience and describe distant events blocked from ordinary perception. This film features rare, and until now, Top Secret footage from the vault of the CIA, of Laboratory Experiments conducted at SRI featuring famed psychic Uri Geller.
This intuitive capacity was named (RV) Remote Viewing, and the research was supported by the CIA, NASA and many other government agencies for gathering intelligence about world-wide targets in China, USSR, Iran, etc. during the Cold War. This was a Real X-file!

‘I never felt the energy.” (After one year of training!)
That is almost unbelievable. I felt the energy from day one.
Every Qi Gong & Tai Chi master can you make feel the energy from a distance (even if you are sick and never had any training lessons at all).
And … you don’t have to believe in it and you will still feel it.

Told you many times before that distilled liquids are THE SECRET!
Enzymes and organic minerals from fruit and vegies are also very important.
Once you cook your stuff the enzymes and many other nutrients like vitamins are getting destroyed.
Rainwater is distilled water, but nowadays comes with many problematic/deadly substances it it:

Göbekli Tepe, is a hilltop sanctuary erected on the highest point of an elongated mountain ridge some 15 km northeast of the town of Şanlıurfa, in southeastern Turkey and 500 miles away from Istanbul, Turkey.
It is the most astonishing archaeological discovery in modern times and also thought to be the oldest advanced civilization on Earth.
PISA, Italy, July 17 (UPI) — Italian doctors say they’re amazed by a 3-year-old prodigy who reads newspapers, operates the family’s television remote and even gives medical advice.
The parents from the town of Perignano near Pisa say the boy, named Ettore, taught himself almost all these skills just by observing adults, ANSA news agency reported.
“We started teaching him the alphabet for fun. We would never have imagined his abilities would develop like this,” Ettore’s father Francesco Grillo, a 44-year-old artist, said.
“Then when he was about two he started to read newspapers and TV guides,” Grillo said. “Initially we thought he memorized phrases and repeated them parrot-like. But then we realized he was reading for real.”

Prahlad Jani spent a fortnight in a hospital in Gujarat under constant surveillance from medics
AHMEDABAD, India — An 83-year-old Indian holy man who says he has spent seven decades without food or water has astounded a team of military doctors who studied him during a two-week observation period.
Prahlad Jani spent a fortnight in a hospital in the western India state of Gujarat under constant surveillance from a team of 30 medics equipped with cameras and closed circuit television.
During the period, he neither ate nor drank and did not go to the toilet.
“We still do not know how he survives,” neurologist Sudhir Shah told reporters after the end of the experiment. “It is still a mystery what kind of phenomenon this is.”
The long-haired and bearded yogi was sealed in a hospital in the city of Ahmedabad in a study initiated by India’s Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO), the state defence and military research institute.
The DRDO hopes that the findings, set to be released in greater detail in several months, could help soldiers survive without food and drink, assist astronauts or even save the lives of people trapped in natural disasters.
Push hands is a training tool to develop and to check your abilities and to get a feedback where you are right now on your way to mastership.
People who neglect these exercises because they just want to practice the health and the meditation aspect of Tai Chi, without getting involved into the martial art aspect, do not understand that the perfection and integration of the martial art aspect of Tai Chi leads to a more perfect aligned, rooted and relaxed body structure, that will greatly influence the free flow of chi and the amount of chi flowing through your body.
So mastering the martial arts aspect is essential if you want to improve the health benefit you will get from practicing Tai Chi.
Your meditation or focus will greatly improve by practicing push hands.
Who will be able to get a master out of focus? See for yourself.
Huang Sheng-Shyan, 黃性賢, Huang Hsing-hsien (WG) or Huáng Xìngxián (py) was born in 1910 in Minhou County of the Fujian province in Mainland China. He began studying Fujian White Crane with Xie Zhong-Xian at the age of 14.
In 1947 he resettled in Taiwan where he became a disciple of Cheng Man-ch’ing. Yang Ch’eng-fu as the grandson of the Yang style founder, had been Cheng Man-Ching’s teacher.Huang committed himself to this tradition for the next 45 years.

A crowd of thousands attended Habib Miyan’s funeral Photo: AP
Habib Miyan played the clarinet in a maharajah’s orchestra before retiring 70 years ago.
However, there is much dispute over his actual age. Although he said he was 138 years old, his pension book showed him to be a mere stripling at 129 – and the Guinness Book of Records has been unable to verify his age at all.
Miyan, who lived in Jaipur in western India, had no birth certificate but has collected a state pension for decades. He once worked in the court of the king of Jaipur – Raja Man Singh, where he played in the wind section of the orchestra.
A crowd of thousands attended Miyan’s funeral – demonstrating the fame to which he had risen in the state of Rajasthan. He died after suffering fever and dysentery, his niece Munni told reporters.
Miyan sprang to the attention of the world in 1998, when a bank clerk called Rajesh Nagpal decided to look up the records of the venerable old man who had been collecting his pension for as long as anyone could remember.
Six years later he became one of the oldest people to make the pilgrimage to Mecca – a lifelong goal for the devout Muslim.
The visit was exceptional: Miyan, who had been blind for more than 50 years and suffered limited mobility, spent most of his time at home praying and telling stories to his enormous extended family of 140 people.
“If you treat your body well, the body will treat you well,” Miyan always said, according to a relative.
My Tai Chi and Qi Gong teachers can also do the miraculous (‘Empty Force’ etc.).
They can also do it at a great distance. (In mind there is no distance. See also ‘nonlocality ‘in quantum physics.) It’s real.
‘You are where your consciousness is.’
This is not defying the ‘physical law’ if you include quantum physics!
We are emitting and receiving energy all of the time.
What we perceive as physical or solid is much more than 90% empty space.
Your body is 99.9999999999999% empty space.
And yet space – even a vacuum – is never empty.

A man who was left completely blind by multiple strokes has been able to navigate an obstacle course using only his “sense” of where hazards lie.
The feat is an example of “blindsight”, the ability of some blind people to sense things that they cannot see.
Scientists already knew that the man, known only as TN, reacted to facial expressions that he could not see.
Brain scans showed that he could recognise expressions including fear, anger and joy in other people.
However, he is totally blind and normally walks using a stick to alert himself to objects in his path.
To test the extend of his blindsight, scientists constructed an obstacle course made up of boxes and chairs arranged in a random pattern.
Not only was TN able to safely manoeuvre the course he did not bump into a single box or chair.
Professor Beatrice de Gelder, from the University of Tilburg in the Netherlands, who led the study, said: “This is absolutely the first study of this ability in humans.
