Dr. Bem, a social psychologist at Cornell University, conducted a series of studies that will soon be published in one of the most prestigious psychology journals (Journal of Personality and Social Psychology). Across nine experiments, Bem examined the idea that our brain has the ability to not only reflect on past experiences, but also anticipate future experiences. This ability for the brain to "see into the future" is often referred to as psi phenomena.
Rumors of psychic abilities have steadily been bleeding in from the fringes and into the mainstream culture for the past century. From Princeton’s Engineering Anomalies Research laboratories, to government funded remote viewing projects at Stamford Research Institute, to the models of Campbell, Sheldrake, Wolf, and Radin to name a few, science (“the religion of the west”) is under pressure, now more than ever, to address the problem of consciousness—the measurer of all measurements.
So if we accept that these psi phenomena are real, how then can we explain them without throwing out our entire understanding of time and physics? Well, the truth is that these effects are actually pretty consistent with modern physics' take on time and space. For example, Einstein believed that the mere act of observing something here could affect something there, a phenomenon he called "spooky action at a distance."

Man that's crazy, but people weren't meant to use their mind's like that, it will never happen without possibly a device or something used to help us do it. You can't change what we weren't meant to do.

Interesting, I do beleive that psychic powers are real, but the big question is does it come from the brain, they cannot answer that question, it may very well be non local, there is evedence that these powers come from without. Since they have no idea what it really is and cannot prove or disprove it with hard science it is still speculation that is coming from the brain.

I think we are being dumb down through technology. Take your grandparents for instance. They added in their head. Now we use a calculator to add. We are becoming too lazy to think. I think Adam used 100% of his brain, that’s how he could name all the animals, talk to God directly etc. We use only a small part of our brain capacity. Just imagine if we could train the brain to work at 100%. Mind boggling.
