think we are being dumbed down with our tech advances too! I feel like we are just treated like cattle by the govenment why we always waiting at the bank, post office, amusement parks, trains we are all just cattle being controlled by the forces that be!
This is what gives dudes the ability to bust a nut on someones face right? lol

If god dropped acid, would he see people?
The 10% of the brain myth is long disspelled: http://www.scientificamerican.com/ar...rcent-of-brain
I found 32 research papers on the basketball free throw, but none involving the visualization process being more effective. I'd be interested in reading it. I've heard of a study on the effectiveness of practice being improved if the subjects dreamed about it the following night, but I've never found the information itself, so I take that with a grain of salt as well. It's an intriguing idea though
As pointed out the monk wasn't a monk. He was featured on the show "Real Superhumans" on Discovery along with several other very interesting people. While what he does is amazing it's an internal physiological process. For telepathy to work you wouldn't just need a physiologically unique receiver, the sender would have to be special too. Brain waves only travel about 3 feet from the body, and they may not even contain anything contextually useful to someone were they capable of receiving. There is no reputable, peer-reviewed, scientific study supporting telekinesis or telepathy in humans or other animals. But that's not to say there aren't impressive analogs. Ants and other species of insect communicate largely in pheremone trails at significant distances.
Technologically, we may see something resembling rudimentary telepathy in our lifetimes though augmentation.
While it's an interesting subject for a thread, there's an underlying bit which I'd like to address.
You heard these interesting things, and have thought about them internally, but didn't go out and pursue additional information on them to see if they were relayed to you in an accurate manner, or what makes them work. While philosophical introspection has its purposes, it's important to not just take the information presented to you at face value, but follow it back to the source and then evaluate it on its merits.
The great philosopher, er, singer Jello Biafra said it best: "Don't just question authority. Question everything."

We can barely duplicate their accomplishments? I dont know if you noticed, but the International Space Station, the Burj Dubai is almost a km tall, all of our computers and nanotechnology and our amazing control of electricity and the infinite possibilities that allows us. We can give a person who has no arm a new one that they can control with their brain. We can kill ourselves at the push of a button through nuclear warfare, or one day colonize Mars through the use of nuclear engines to get there. We kick 2000 years ago's ass.

we as a modern society have a couple of tremendous advantages over any other era in human history-
1- the ability to aquire resources and raw materials globally in very short time
2- rapid transit (motorized equipment)
3- computers and there networked databases
4- global communication
dont misjudge simple structures either, there deceptively simple.. for example, draw a perfect circle free hand...
and as far as the case of a pyramid, if it was easy to build then explain to me how you would do any of this without some modern computers, land surveys, and astronomical charts.. and cranes... and mortar for that matter.
1. survey your pyramid building site in the exact geographical center of the worlds land AND gravitational mass with a precision of less than one 1/4" tolerance. oh yeah, roughly 3500 years before the 'discovery' of north and south america, and the antartic land mass.
2. The north-south axis (31 degrees east of Greenwich) is the longest land meridian, and the east-west axis (30 degrees north) is the longest land parallel on the globe. They only cross at one point in the western hemisphere This also is coincindentally the same location as the great pyramid, 3700 years before the 'discovery' of lattitude
5. build a pyramid structure out of solid stones using no mortar that weighs an estimated 6.5 million tons.. surrounded by sand, in the middle of the desert and support the 14000+ workforce that is needed to build it.oh, and the egyptians did not use wheels in construction, only for chariots. guess they liked a good challenge
The Great Pyramid's north-south axis is aligned to within three-sixtieths of a degree of true north-south. It would be worthwhile to note that this alignment is more accurate than that of the Meridian Building at the Greenwich Observatory in London, which deviates from true north by nine-sixtieths of a degree
6. heres my favorite one... in this pyramid, in the exact center, construct two shafts that point precisely at two given points several light years away... and it gets better than that. because to do this, you must first know the location that those two points will come together, which happens to be 160 feet above the ground BEFORE you build the pyramid... and make that align with the rest of everything else.
that takes quite an impressive amount of surveying my friend... aligning all those points... and heres the best part- build it in a manner so that it will last 5500 years and counting.
pretty simple huh
