interesting speculation, i'd like to beleive also that the Ninja had super powers as well
the first time i heard of the Ninja i was watching a thing on the History Channel about them. They described a training method in which they were
brought out into the middle of the woods and faced a certain number of wooden small sheds shaped like what we know today to be 'port-a-potties'..
anyways, in one shed was a person, the others were empty. The training method here was to use the bioelectric sensation that surounded the Ninja to
sense which shed housed a person. The process was repeated until the number of sheds could be increased and variations created to make it more
Remote viewing is another tool of the Ninja. I doubt they were the 'first' to create it, if they did in fact create it themselves, but the same
discovery channel show talked of their training further involving their ability to remote view inside of castles, inside enemy territory, wherever
they needed to preform their missions. If you'd like i could further explain remote viewing and find some more recent scientific data that suggests
anyone can remote view. back on topic, the Ninja were undoubtfully skilled at covering up simple and practical techniques and making them look like
'sorcery' but that doesn't change the fact that they did engage in very occult and profound spiritual workings, those are two examples.
Since watching that program years or so ago, and living in Japan, i have become deeply interested into finding out more for my own personal path in
I know of a training technique dr hatsumi (grandmaster of the bujinkan dojo) uses in his training. He stands behind a student who is bent before him
and raises a sword ready to strike. In his mind he doesn't think about striking the student, but the student is trained to 'psychicly' try and
read his mind, eventually at random intervals dr hatsumi will begin to strike , the goal of the student is to roll away just as the thought arises in
dr hatsumi's mind or before he strikes them. This is done in a setting where noise or any other variable does not effect the student. The goal of
this method is to be able to read people's minds in the sense of knowing wether they have aggressive motives or are thinking of attacking, and thus
knowing and being ready before they attack.
Such training like those examples are actually just the tip of the ice berg. As i said before, we (as 'non Ninja') don't really know how deep the
rabbit hole goes, as the Ninja have survived by keeping their secrets secret. The more you get into it, the more you find out. Those who ARE Ninja
know even more, the grandmaster, and those he decides worthy, know even more.
You say that there is not necessarily enough evidence. hmmm, well, that's true. There is no evidence that the Ninja produced fire from their hands,
or that a Ninja could preform a similiar technique to the first video i presented. In fact the evidence shows that if they could do such, there
probably would be a rational explanation that didn't involve 'super powers' to their doing it.
But again, there is information out there to the Ninjas developement of very occult 'powers' and psychic abilities. Does it go that far? I don't
know. Perhaps only the Ninja know
my personal opinion based on occult experiences of my own is that these type of phenomenon are indeed possible,
but of course the videos in question might not actually be authentic, they are though, noteworthy and worth this thread and conversation, so i thank
you for adding
But with all that we do know about the Ninja, who is to say the rabbit hole doesn't go any deeper? You might never know..
