All I have to say is wow, I absolutely love the mind over matter concept, our mind is the most powerful weapon in the world, I would love to know how to do this!

Over a decade of intense yoga experience.

Perhaps it's the specific stance he does, or maybe it's simply that in his state he can control how his body reacts to the cold. Indigenous peoples who have lived in these harsh environments for generations can survive the same and have the changes in their body genetically imprinted.

They had this guy on the discovery channel a year or so ago. His body just reacts differantly to intense cold then a normal man. It has nothing to do with yoga, enviroment or diet.

The indeginous people may be able to survive in the cold, but none are able to do the things he is able and live.

I suggest watching the whole show. It has a contortionist and a magnetic guy on their too. I believe its called real life super heros and hosted by stan lee.

This man is absolutely amazing, think of all the things man could do if they stopped focusing on technology and put more focus into mastering the mind!

I did watch it, and I respectfully disagree, anyone can do this, you just have to master the mind.

Dude not trying to start any arguments, please just enjoy the thread.

For there to be an arguement I would have to care about what you say.

I don't, so there isn't an arguement. I will listen to the doctors on the actual documentary and base my opinion on that.

You can master the mind to block out all types of pain, but it doesn't stop the cold from destroying your body, you just won't mind it as much.

The Arctic is an interesting place, with interesting people. To start with one would have to have a natural resistance to cold. This Canuck has walked to the Laundromat in shorts in -26 temp. No big whoop here. +107 though is a real pain in the ass.

I worked with a person that was in JTF2. That's Canada's special forces. Ask around. He said it was damn cold but once he had eaten some aboriginal food the cold didn't matter.

Actually you can keep the cold from destroying your body with Yoga.




I'm sure these two could care less for your opinion as well.

Very interesting, what foods for instance? This still maintains my theory that anyone can do this. If we were to eat these foods it would help.

Please, kind sir! What is this aboriginal food you speak of?
I must have it so I can exploit its secrets come winter.

Hate to be a skeptic and all ~ What this guy can do is amazing. I have a feeling though that Everest will take his life or at least kick his azz in a hard way. I predict that his abilities will suffer greatly with the loss of oxygen, both physiologically (I'm sure he burns O2 like mad to raise the heat) and mentally (loss of focus and brainpower).
Hope he has the sense to turn back when his spidey senses start to tingle!

Well they never tested to see if it was yoga or anything.....but i assume you are right.

I fully believe that humans have the ability to do this. Most of us will never tap into that sort of power though. It proabably involves intense concentration or meditation and really knowing one's own body. I think it must be partial a spiritual thing as well, or we'd all be doing it. We probably all do have the ability, but I think it must be something we also believe we can do.

Sorry guys, I don't recall specifically. It was a type of blubber. I don't recall which. JTF2 are used to extreme weather but this really helped them out with their, I have NO idea. Metabolism? Body Temp? They felt frozen and once they ate the blubber they were OK.

I stared your post, because I think you hit the nail on the head, you just have to believe you can do it. The human mind is capable of amazing things.

Maybe because now they're thinking about the fact that they just ate a big 'ol globby wad of blubber.
Eeeyak, I know that would definitely take my mind off a few things.
