You shouldn't be SO quick to say its a trick.... can you explain the SCIENTIST reaction to his "moving thier muscles and SHOCKING them"??? or is it JUST the 'news paper burning' that your "logic" can comprehend in a comforting manner.
Watch ALL of the videos please. It is one video that I broke up into six parts so I could fit them within the 10 minute YT time frame.
Also, see itsjustnotpossible(dot)com/QiGong(dot)html for an explanation.
Sorry, I cannot translate it, but if you watch the (other) vids, you can clearly see the girl pointing out the holes in the table, and the magnets hidden underneath. She also provides her own jar which he fails to break, and her own tub of water, which he fails to move!

One of my Aunty's boyfriends could do the hand heating thing. He was in martial arts and he could willingly warm up his hands. It is nothing special, just a way of overriding the brain's protect only me principle. When your body starts to get cold, it reserves its heat to the center and the brain, deeming the arms and legs expendable. This is a natural response like blinking, and also like blinking you can turn it off or control it. So, with enough focus and practice you can tell your body to focus the heat in your hands etc. Heating your hands possibly lighting paper on fire is not all that special, the one I never heard of was the lighting a light bulb and more of what the second video showed. Perhaps it is like how you can charge an Ipod with a CPU(computer processor). In this case the brain is the CPU if you can run your thought in a similar manner to that of the software for charing an Ipod, you may be able to produce and electric current. This seems to be supported by the fact that the guy had to meditate all the time. I know the hand heating is possible first and second hand, second as in my Aunt's past boyfriend and if first hand, I heated up a drink before with my own hand. The electric current though seems much more "faked" but, who knows for sure, there is electricity in the body just like there is heat.
I think the 5V in the USB changes an Ipod, not the software.

Gee, whiz folks. It's a magic trick, just like they do in Las Vegas. It belongs in the same thread as the discussion of Criss Angel's "real" supernatural powers.
One would think that after all this time and all the effort that real magicians have put into explaining how these things work, that there would be just a few less gullible people in the world who are suckered by this stuff. Oh, well. I guess it's true that there's a sucker born every minute... and two to take 'em.

But this stuff is obviously the same kind of hocus-pocus that clever olks have been doing in small villages and markets for thousands of years.

That video was incredible. I cant believe that these powers are just laying latent within all of us. It just goes to show that energy can be channeled from within you, if you know how to control it
I have this strong urge to start meditating now.
you see the humility in his face from realizing he had let his ego step in to do the stunt
