It has no genuine scientific explanation.
The difference between walking on fire and holding a burning cherry consists of the following.
1) The burning embers have space inbetween them, and are not flat red hot. (as in a slab of pure coal.)
I am utilizing neither of these, and am still able to focus away the pain.
I can't doubt your skepticism, although, it is mind over matter, reason I say so -- Try it yourself.
I didn't start the callouse in one day, and the first time I tried it I didn't get burned.
Once again, there is a very easy way to prove me wrong, and it's the exact same thing you're attempting to utilize against me, science.
You know what science is? Something you can do yourself. So therefore, go do it yourself, and prove me wrong.
Once again, you can't and you won't. Therefore, there is no proof on your part.
It involves utilizing pyschological changes in ones self, it involves focusing the energy of the cherry away from my fingers. The science behind that
is more complicated than a simple callouse.
