Real Humans with "superpowers?"

So, I was thinking lately. I have been watching the show "Alphas," on the Psyfy channel. Is it possible that people could have developed some sort of "powers?" I heard back in March 2011, but I can't find the story anywhere, about some girl in India(?), that could light fires with her mind. She was a three year old who randomly started fires around her. Is there anyone who has any examples, or stories that they would be willing to share? IN thinking it seems logical that someone in the world has developed some sort of strange power. Not flying, or anything extreme, but... seeing electromagnetic signals, heightened vision, or smell, telekinesis, pyrokinesis, things like that... things that just take current skills we have, and heighten them to an extreme sense. It seems plausible.

They are called siddhis and probably are occurring more often in a regular (as opposed to the monk who has made it his lifes work) population as we reach higher levels of vibration as a whole.

I have a super power. Sometimes if conditions are right I can leave a fart and clear out everyone within twenty feet. It's a great way to clear the line in front of you.
Everyone seems to remember they forgot to get something and returns to shopping.

I'm form a family of extremely flexible people--those you call double-jointed. For instance, my hips are double-jointed. The reason for this is I got the genes for my pelvic socket from the larger parent, and the balls to my thigh-bones form the smaller parent. It's a defect. Most "super powers" like this are defects.

I have a "superpower" if you want to call it that.

I can look into the possible futures, and by looking at the worst possible outcomes, I actually prevent them from happening. It's by the law of probability. By "predicting" an uncertain outcome, the chance of it happening decreases exponentially. If what I saw actually happened, it would make me a precog. But, thankfully, I'm not.

Developing superpowers? Entirely plausible...I'm sure bi-pedal walking and opposeable thumbs would be considered "super powers" to creatures who didn't have those wonderful traits.

If you were to interview a neanderthal I'm pretty sure he would think of modern man as a super-hero...with all that language and communication we do...an Olympic gymnast would probably be perceived as having "super-powers"...

who knows...

Yes, i have heard about this. I am doing a project right now on ''super powers''. If its real, the what causes it, how do you obtain it if its not generic, what can you do with it. If you know anyone who has a "super power'' email them to me. I may sound a little cucu but I've been trying to do stuff like Telekinesis, pryokinesis, levitation, hydrokinesis, etc. If anyone wants to help on the project then message me.

True true, but it is an interesting thing to think about. Yes and to the person with double joints, I would think that if certain people certain genes can mix and make incredible traits.

Try Vaporizing a cloud for starters.

I am not convinced that this is "Superhuman", rather than the fact that most folks
are so "dumbed down", they do not realize their abilities and potential.

Give it a shot, it's free.

Here's a thread from the paranormal studies forum. Started in 2004, it's a bit overwhelming with over 1700 replies and 80 plus pages. Also, it's essentially dead with posts now dating months apart.

About real life super powers

So I'm glad this topic is being discussed more in a current thread...

I'm of the opinion that a man can do pretty much anything. Also, the term superpower is very relative to what is considered normal in the current mind...For example if in a thousand years technology was developed in line with projections, a person could easily be augmented with internet access in the brain, fast self healing, better mobility maybe even flying, all while maintaining essentially the same appearance we have now. So if someone were to develop time travel and come back here, they could be viewed as superhuman despite being normal in their own time....

Or there could be secret groups with better technology existing in the world today, who knows?


Or these powers could be the result of enhanced energetic states relating to philosophy.

Or maybe, higher beings could turn a human into a toy of sorts and have them do things considered to be supernatural...

So in all, I'd say the possibility of humans having super power is greater than the possibility of figuring out their origin.

Would a team of super heroes in the public realm be beneficial to society? If it happened I'd venture to guess that many on ATS would spin it into a paranoid scenario of the few ruling the many.

I knew a guy once that had superpowers.... his tie got caught in the shredder at the office and since he was in his alias he parished. He could of saved himself but did not want to give away his secret identity. So was the life of PAPERMAN........Later he was recycled into a paper mache doll but would never return to fight crime. You might want to every so often check for paper cuts....you never know!!!!!!

I think it would be amazing to have some kind of super power! The only problem is that if it ever got out that it was "you" you'd be in big trouble. Every agency on the planet would try and kidnap you to figure out your power. So if you used it you'd have to be very careful. My only problem is I'm so lazy that even if I had one I'm not sure how often I'd use it.

Telekinesis and psychokinesis are probably the most extreme a superhuman power would get.Telekinesis is definitely the strongest and most likely the deadliest of any ability.....

Now imagine that in TPTB's hands. A horrid thought, so if they do exist, most of them are in hiding for fear of exploitation and experimentation.

Would you want to be used as a weapon by someone to enforce an agenda against your own people?


We need the x-men,

I have honestly always considered this theory, i just haven't realized that many others had thought of the same lol

Great in my opinion.

I can read minds. People dont like it when i tell them i know theyre lying. Theyll lie again and say they were teloing the truth, and later i find out im right. It really freaks people the hell out, so i just keep my mouth shut.

You should check out the show with Stan Lee regarding this very topic. Most of the people don't have super powers like you see in comics, but they can do extraordinary things most humans cannot. Pretty intereseting to say the least.

Ya that is my opinion of it. Apparently many people think it is fantasy only.

No human has super powers. Except Rasputin.

Over the summer i got some "power" that allows me to know exactly whats coming out of a persons mouth as there talking. For example i can play a random song and i'll know every lyric to the song as the songs being played. Or i can watch a movie and know exactly what there going to say as there talking. Its a trip!!
