These incidents of superhuman strength , show the hidden power
of the human mind . Most people would suffer permanent damage
to their spines , in lifting a car . .... but in these cases they don't !
These powers only seem to manifest themselves , during intensely
stressful situations. ... might be the "ant factor" [lifting 50x own weight]

I Think it has to be something other than adreneline. I don't care
how much adreneline you pump in to whoever. They are not going to lift a car like that. There seems to be some kind of a secret about the human
mind that unlocks when we react without thinking. What went through his
mind just then? " oh my God I have to get that car off of her" he jumps
out of the car with his mind FOCUSED .
He lifts the car off the little girl before he even realises what he has done
Jesus Christ said with faith you can move mountains.
Although a car is not a mountain. Do we know that would 've made a difference?

Listen to me Neo.......... FREE YOUR MIND.

What a cool story...I myself experienced something close to this 2 yrs ago when my daughter was riding a quad runner and flipped it and it landed on top of her about 50ft from me. I ran to her a ripped it off of her and threw it with one hand...granted it was only about 15ft and only a little 250 but I couldnt do it again later when I tried.

Shortly afterwards I was extremely naucous(sp?)...Adrenaline rush.

Now I have read in the past that we have the potential to be extremely strong like primates but are unable to use the full potential of our muscles. I dont know the truth of the article but found it interesting none the less.

Not to take away from the OP, but to add...

For those of you who are old enough to remember this guy:


Amazing what we are capable of when we don't think about what we are doing.

That comparison has a flaw, you are comparing a steel tube with a tube with very thick walls, made in a way that look like foam, so the best comparison would be between a femur bone and a steel-foam tube with the same wall thickness as the bone.

In those conditions the bone breaks first, that's why you can break a bone with a hammer but you cannot break a hammer with a bone.

Something similar happened to me in the past. I was in Naval Aircrewman School and there was an 8 foot tall wall that you had to grab and pull yourself over. I never had the upper body strength to do it. But the day that we were being graded (pass or fail), the adrenaline was pumping so much that I leaped over it like it was nothing. It was only seconds later that my mind suddenly clicked on the fact that I had done it, as if it had disconnected just long enough to get past the obstacle. It's nowhere near the same as lifting a car, I know, but it gave me the insight into how such things could be done by an ordinary person.

Stronger yes, indestructible no, numb to hurt or injury yes... you pay for it later after the rush is gone....

Source: personal experience...
see Sig Image below...

I once heard an explanation that seemed to make sense to me (not sure how accurate it is)... But everyone's muscles are much stronger than we give them credit for - in fact the limiting factor is not the strength it's the pain, the muscles are strong enough to tear them selves right off the tendons and bones but our body wont normally allow us to go that far... It makes sense as when people are say electrocuted they quite often rip muscles.

That is exactly it.

You see something awful happen, such as a child trapped under a car and you shoot adrenaline all throughout your body... That adrenaline is what allows these Apparent super feats of strength to happen.

I do not know if you have ever been in a fist fight. I have been in many. Although it has been years. ( I have calmed down quite a bit since I was a teen) I recall lots of adrenaline going through my body during each fight.

That allowed me to win each one ( No I am not bragging.. FIGHTING IS WRONG) The adrenaline pumped through my body allowing my muscles to reach their full potential which allowed me to fight at my best...

Exactly the same thing happened here. He saw this girl trapped under the car and his adrenaline started going which allowed him to lift and move the car... Likewise, the reason he cannot do it now is because he does not have this surge of adrenaline taking place.

No adrenaline? No surge of power...

That said, it is nice to see a bit of happy news for a change. I get so sick of seeing news about murder, rape, death etc... This was a breathe of fresh air.

Exciting to ponder the possibilities!

Ever read The Physics of Miracles - Tapping into the Field of Conciousness Potential by Richard Barlett? You should if you want to know what it is that this makes kind of miracles happen.

The idea of infinite potential suggests that different or alternate universes are created in which every possible outcome is played out. By tapping into altered states of awareness, we can track alternate potentialities and blur the boundaries of these universes.

The adrenaline bit is just the body chemistry but getting the body to DO that chemistry is something completely different.

Pure (unselfish) Heart Energy generates Miracles to happen


That's an interesting thought.

You know what, I can agree with you, Melyanna. And maybe, just maybe there'll be more and more humans who develop those kinds of abilities. However, potentially, it'll split humankind into two categories. The ones who possess it and the ones who don't.

It is called an "involuntary reflex" and is how animals do amazing feats.

Quite simply the evolution of "thinking" has caused the number of cells being recruited to lower from 100% down to approx. 30% in man. And along with that decline certain types of cells can never be touched while you are putting a thought process into it.

But we still have the ability to form powerful short, sharp contractions. During a voluntary reflex you body only "allows" itself to use a lower % of muscle cells for a very logical reason. It limits your output because whatever daily task you are doing is obviously not life threatening or harmful in any way. It is an "action" and not a "reaction", so you can not simply override this inbuilt limitation by trying to go harder or faster. In fact the more thought put into a deliberate action, the less likely you are accidentally going to jump up into the higher levels of recruitment.

Why...? Something must always be left for fight or flight, and these range from simple re-balancing, jumping off something and landing safety to a full on fight for your life.

Classic Eg... Dropping and landing from 1.5 meters causes your body to catch 6x its own mass, but you could never squat that.

What keeps the bones from breaking then?

Muscle can break bone, it happens during high voltage electrocution.

Something more than physical is going on here IMHO.

Look into Berserkergang. Anger is the most powerful emotion, above fear and love.

well there's a lot to be learned about the subtle bio-electricity that pulses though our body. I suspect this may come into play somehow during scenes like this.
It may have an amazing effect on the muscle and bone it is contained within.

Honestly, science can say it's the adrenaline rush all it wants too, but the fact of the matter is we really don't know. Maybe we are tapping into some part of our subconscious that allows us to have extraordinary powers, as in this case it would be super-human strength. But the answer may be much simpler, although I doubt it.

I think this act of heroism shows us something important, which is that people do have humanity left within them. A person who didn't care about human life, or disregarded helping others because they didn't want to get hurt themselves wouldn't be able to open this special ability of super-human strength. Not to mention some sort of quick healing must take place. Either that, or the muscles are protected while the act is being done. So you can unlock these powers to do good it seems, and I think we haven't unlocked it completely (as with other abilities) because humanity is not ready for it. Imagine if people could learn to have super-human strength all the time or whenever they wanted. The 'bad guys' out there would have that much more power. And at this day and age the last thing we need is for the bad guys to have the upper hand.

"The important thing is to not stop questioning. Curiosity has its own reason for existing. One cannot help but be in awe when he contemplates the mysteries of eternity; of life; of the marvelous structure of reality..."

I love this thread. I remember my mum told me years ago that a woman in England or Scotland lifted a bus up in order to save her own child that was trapped underneath it. I could not find any evidence to show you guys, it was a decade or so ago. But check this out, these are also very similar stories:

A five-year-old boy dressed in a Spider-Man suit became a real superhero in Brazil when he saved a baby girl from her burning home.

It’s a story nothing short of amazing. A handful of homeless men lifted a 2 ton Cadillac off a little girl who was pinned beneath it.

I got electrocuted once with 15,640 volts.
Two angels placed a membrane of protection around me and opened the portal of unlimited power from God so I could detatch myself.

Some of us prefer a more concrete explanation than "Angels"

on topic: Great story, amazing what the human body is capable of doing. I wonder how long down the evolutionary line we will have to travel until an individual teaches themselves how to unlock this hidden strength on command, or if that is even a possibility. Who knows

If you want to Post a thread on anti Christianity this is the wrong thread for that.

Back to the topic...I also think that some mental limitation might come in to play here.. some people including myself have come out of anesthesia and exhibited unusual displays of strength..
I had just undergone a carpel tunnel surgery and they told me later that I had started yelling in my sleep and when a couple 220 pound doctors tried holding me down, I flicked my arm and sent them both flying accross the room airborn... I still can't remember any of it.

That's kind of what I think too armap--Like a temporary "disconnection" from thought-based limitation maybe? The barrier of what can and cannot be done is obliterated for just a moment within the psyche of the individual, and there is sort of an override that takes place. Speculation on my behalf, of course.

I think it's like this.

You can hold an egg in your hand and squeeze it and it won't break, but drop it and it is crushed.

We are amazingly agile, but exceedingly fragile.

Different cells serve different purposes in this body.
