In Quiet Freedom, Lars mentions to Amanda that there is a person who can swim amongst icebergs. In this section we are going to learn about people who have abilities which many might consider extra-ordinary. Many of these videos have been on Youtube for a long time, with relatively few views compared to others. Perhaps we are so busy congratulating ourselves over something else, that we don't notice what some of these people have done, and miss their significance.
Can reading a fiction book, Quiet Freedom, help you activate hidden abilities inside all of us?
Can conquering the darkness inside you and being the light, reveal hidden abilities latent inside all of us?
What if we stopped watching fantasy movies about superheroes, and started looking within, what might we find? What if we stopped elevating various individuals in the past / present / future as heroes and started looking within and learning from others? What if we started asking A LOT more questions?
Watching all the clips above would take you 2.5 hours. Some of them are just clips / trailers for full documentaries, but they will get you thinking. Do you have the courage to challenge every belief in you? Who has the courage?

There are many more videos we would like to show you, but they weren't uploaded to Youtube by their creators. Here is a list of the stories that you can search for on your own. Search term in BOLD.
1) Rudiger Gamm - another human calculator like Scott Flansburg. Claims to be able to recite pi to 5,000 digits. Also featured on a documentary titled Memory Masters.
2) Boy with Divine Powers - Discovery Channel documentary. Abilities would include cold tolerance, heat generation, inedia (not eating for prolonged periods), sitting in one place for days, months at a time. "Super meditation." You might enjoy this GQ Magazine article.Will add some non Discovery Channel videos in the future. This is a strange story for the uninitiated.
3) Tarahumara Born to Run - Discovery Channel mini-documentary, 10 minutes. Running for hundreds of miles at a time, barefoot?
4) tummo meditation cold towel - History Channel video clip. Clip from documentary showing Buddhist monks being studied. They demonstrate using their meditation technique that they can raise their internal body temperature to dry off cold towels in a very cold room.
5) Master Zhou - various clips showing heat power projection.
Stan Lee's Superhumans Season 1, 2, & 3 - This is a treasure trove of History Channel research that has uncovered people with extraordinary abilities. Some are just unexplainable. Some aren't so much native body abilities but the merging of current technology with their own physical skill set. Some examples we thought weren't that interesting. Other we thought were amazing. You can buy these DVDs for dirt cheap on Amazon. Happy watching!
If you expand the range of abilities observed to include savants, you could research - Daniel Tammet. You may find a video of him reciting pi to 20,000 digits, among other feats. We know so little, yet many scientists and individuals alike, act like we know pretty much everything there is to know. Just history repeating itself, or rather dark energy.
Some videos we haven't had time to watch but which may be insightful include:
UltraMarathon Man: 50 Marathons • 50 States • 50 Days -- showcases the abilities of Dean Karnazes. He was profiled in a Stan Lee Superhumans episode and there was a discussion about his body's ability to recover faster and not generate (as much) lactic acid. Hey, if he has this ability, why doesn't everyone? Also Born to Run: The Kenyan Secrets. And hey...if lactic acid makes us tired -- WHY DO WE EAT IT?
Another health benefit (2016+) I've experienced recently is the ability to carry my hiking backpack longer before my shoulders start hurting from 'sore shoulders'. In fact, they seldom hurt at all these days from carrying a backpack. Not only that, but I'm able to carry more weight. The reason for this is due primarily to my shoulder muscles unwinding. Anyone who knows me of late knows that I go hiking in the mountains A LOT!
As we get older, many people experience muscle strain, herniated discs, back spasms, pinched nerves, reduced mobility, and slower walking speed. At my current rate of healing and relaxation, I don't expect any of these "signs of aging" to ever happen to me. And why would they? I'm going in the exact opposite direction in terms of muscle tension. Do the same as 99.999% of others and you will get the same result. Read Quiet Freedom to learn how to buck the trend. I never need a massage anymore and I have improved symmetry in my face.
Now, I must say, there is occassionaly a slight pain as the muscles unwind sometimes. For they were so used to being in an unrelaxed state that to release the tension, there is a sensation of paing sometimes, but it goes away. And when the unwinding is all done, there will be no more. I might call it "good pain."
We've been led to believe that bulging muscles means we are strong. Watching the videos below and reading the articles below tell a different tale.World's Strongest Girl (Daily Mail - UK) 14 yo Naomi - Supergirl (Youtube) Naomi Kutin
Another benefit of my muscles unwinding has been an improvement in my walking gait. From feet angled out "like a duck" to nearly straight. Unconsciously. This is something I have noticed in more and more people - they walk with their feet angled out - not very efficient. It's from tight muscles that cause a bowed out stance. Hey - tight muscles also contribute to slower walking - as seen in many older people. It's not just the muscles in my shoulders and face, but in the legs too. Everywhere. Later I will talk about running. And in the future I plan to show a video of a timed mile run, but more on that later.
I could also talk about the downfall of pretty much all exercise routines, but that will in the Advanced Abilities section someday.

As of mid-2016, it isn't just my vision that is improving.
Cold tolerance - For as long as I can remember, I've enjoyed taking hot showers, or at least very warm water showers. Recently, even in the morning, I have started to prefer luke-cold to luke-warm water. This was by no action on my part. Cold showers are healthier for us than hot showers. It is also a sign that my body is changing. Will I someday have the ability of the individuals in the videos above...yes. When? I don't know.*
If you watch some of the videos above of Wim Hof, he goes into more detail about the method he uses and that he teaches to others. There is one issue with his method that I would like to point out. He is aging very quickly. If you look at how he looks from 2008 in the Ice Bath record and in the 2014/2015 VICE video of him training others on his method he has aged considerably. The fundamental principle behind his method is valid (obviously), but it comes with side effects in the way he is doing it. There is another way to achieve cold tolerance, while not aging quickly either.
A hint on how to achieve this is in plain sight. If you carefully observe people (or yourself) after they eat, you might find them reaching for their jacket until the heat from the food kicks in. Also, in public places or at your workplace you will notice some people needing more clothes than others to stay warm. Why is this? Studying their personalities may give you some insight.
Optimizing our electrical pathways (Circulation) - means higher tolerance of cold at our extremities. Ears, feet, and hands. So, at some point, one would not need ear muffs, gloves, or socks. And when totally strengthened - perhaps no more shoes. I have already noticed this with my extremities - being able to withstand lower temperatures before wanting to put on gloves for example. I can also walk barefoot on more surfaces without feeling uncomfortable / sensitive (Important for Earthing).
Ever notice how younger children often have better cold tolerance? They could be outside in a t-shirt and shorts bicycling or skateboarding, or just walking, while other "adults" around are wearing more jackets. The muscles in children, for the most part, are not as twisted up with stress as adults, thus they have better electrical circulation quite often. The usage of electronic devices is changing this though.
As my cold tolerance, or perhaps it should be better called, temperature regulation, improves, I tend to notice people wearing a lot more clothes than me. I see this especially when camping. In the lows 50s F or even upper 40s F I could still be out pretty comfortably in t-shirt and shorts while others are wearing fleece or sweatshirts and/or jackets. I'm not talking just for a few minutes, but hours.
Cold tolerance and sex - While the videos above only highlight cold tolerance, in reality, it is better to perhaps call it - temperature regulation. I recall at various times having sex with different girls and they would overheat. Sex would then become unpleasant. Temperature incompatibility. In a very frank and honest conversation with a few girls and a guy that I knew at one time, they would complain about this too. I suppose the same thing could happen on the male side, but that is not for me to confirm. (Now that I think about it, I'm sure it has happened to me during sex. Who wants to know why?) Eventually I connected this to their personality type (and body type) and eventually a very specific feeling on how these girls thought about the world and themselves. This is eliminated in Mind / No Mind.
Once the self-healing process has started and one maintains (or improves) the conditions, the body will start healing many things in our body (and mind). I don't know the full extent of what is possible, but with a spirit of adventure and a little "luck," (What is luck anyway?) we're going to find out!
Super Memory - Already identified in 50+ people! F-I-F-T-Y!! Genetic mutation? A gift (or curse) from "God or the Devil?" Or some other explanation? Maybe these (and other abilities profiled) are examples of people who have preserved certain capabilties before we devolved due to our reliance on technology and the way we think about ourselves? Devolution? An interesting reference point are the stories of people who could recite long poems from memory - the recording of their oral history. Where do we come from? What if we could have this kind of memory WITHOUT the eBaggage? What would that be worth? Would you toss your smartphone? Or is it really a dumbphone?
Calendar Calculation - it's not just memory, but also the automatic ability to calculate the day of the week for any date. A calendar in our head. How is it possible that this ability manifested itself? "Just evolution?" A genetic advantage...right? I don't think so. Open your mind and you will discover other explanations.
Mathematic Ability - There are stories of a couple of individuals who can calculate faster than a calculator or computer. I've noticed my own ability to calculate simple mathematics in my head differs from day to day sometimes. Certainly, I don't have any automatic lightning ability such as some of these individuals. But, could I acquire it if I rewired and repaired my mind / body OVER TIME? How much time? How could I get more time? What abilities would the body heal first?
What if we all inherently had the computational power of an advanced calculator in our "circuitry?" But because of the way we treat our mind and bodies it malfunctions. If true, we wouldn't need the majority of math classes per se.
If you've read the book, you already know the secret to self-healing. Whether that includes healing our body to the point of having super mathematic abilities, well, we're going to find out.
Spatial ability / sense of direction - Maybe not considered a "power." Yet, so many people are so reliant on their GPS devices. Or some people are not as adventurous, and one reason is a fear of getting lost. I've traveled through 75+ countries and gone to places where few go, often alone - which is much different than on a tour group, or with the military. I don't use GPS nor do I own a smartphone. Just maps and a sense of direction, and I often learn an area quickly, so as to not need a map at all. All migratory animals - they don't use maps or GPS! They "just know!!" - by experience. How is that? In standardized spatial reasoning testing (Those unfolded cubes) I often (always?) scored 99%+ correct. [Now that I know myself very well, I even know why this is so]
Some think we are better than animals just because we can kill, imprison, and dominate them... Butterflies, whales, birds, etc... could one explanation be that our estrogen / testosterone level is off? More here. Many chemicals in our food affect these levels (Not talking just man-made pesticides or insecticides, but the actual food itself)...but wait, there's more!
What if you could have a sense of direction and less fear like the early mariners? Leif Erikson, Vasco da Gama, Christopher Columbus, Ferdinand Magellan? Or the less heralded Polynesians who traveled great distances in small boats in the Pacific Ocean. Yes, a sense of direction without some of the other "unsavory" elements of some of these early mariners!

Reduced appetite - no emotional eating / cravings - hybrid body - Is it possible to exist on sunlight alone? Watch some videos related to it, and this "wacko, crazy" idea, you may find to not be so crazy after all. How much do you know about the side effects of the food we eat and drinks we consume?
Check out www.lightdocumentary.com. Many people LOVE to eat, especially with the upsurge in food networks / tv shows, celebrity chefs, etc......it's said, LOVE is BLIND. Foodie CULTure. Obesity and weight issues. What have you been blinded to? Do you know the history behind how the modern supermarket came to be? Most of the items in a supermarket that people LOVE, did not exist a short while ago. They are artificial creations. Some ingredients aren't artificial, but by genetic cross-pollination they have been made into something they never were. Some ingredients are from far away lands. (Let us not get into indentured servitude and slave wages) How much did people in the past love to eat? Or was it just sustenance?
Being overweight or having an up and down weight IS NOT a problem, unless you think it is. Some "overweight" (but not grossly obese to be certain) people may live longer than "non-overweight" people. Because many non-overweight individuals use certain food and drink to stay thin - but the effects of those foods and drinks is detrimental to our health as well. Appearances can be deceiving. When I was younger (~10 years old) I was overweight. I largely grew out of it, but I never thought I was fat or overweight or needed to exercise until later in life.
The percentage of obese and overweight people has continued to climb all over the world, because we fail to understand the reasons why we eat more. It's all emotional. We don't talk about this because knowledge of how emotions relate to eating is poorly understood, for many do not understand their own feelings, let alone how sound and visual stimulus relate. This is why many are on roller coaster diets, tense from using caffeine as an appetite suppressant, or using cigarettes as an appetite suppressant. The % of obese would increase if you account for smokers and heavy caffeine consumers (Diet pills are loaded with caffeine, and some use tea (without sugar)to keep weight off - but they suffer other ill effects from caffeine)! The simple advice of just "eat less and exercise more," sounds great in theory, but over the long term, is no match for the power of repressed feelings. Who wants to change? Who wants to stop being a prisoner to food? A prisoner to their negative feelings.
Learning about water fasting and its health effects may be interesting.
As you watch these videos, you may start to seriously question your belief system. Well, assuming you have read the book and/or other parts of this website you already know that there are a lot of lies today and throughout history. Maybe they aren't even lies, just misunderstandings that snowballed into something else.
In general, people were more truthful in the past, as there was less dark energy. But being more truthful, is not the same as being truthful.
So, the reckoning is that in certain religions there are stories of miraculous abilities to prove some kind of divinity. Yet, here on this one webpage we have videos of people doing seemingly miraculous things as well with their own bodies, no external technology. Are they claiming any divinity? Reconciling one's belief system with a new "reality" will have to take place - if you want to be honest with your self from our perspective.
Even if there is a claim of some religious attribution or reference to a religion / belief system of some sort, the abilities come from people with different backgrounds. Different races.
A relatively large segment of the population is indifferent to phenomenon such as this or don't let it affect their viewpoint / daily life. There are many who will deny existence of anything beyond the consumer material world / "prevailing scientific viewpoint" we live in or their view is clouded by some other "myopic lens."
These "ways of thought" will influence how you view these videos. The voices in the "back of your head" (Quantum Entanglement). Yet, the evidence is right before us - unless ALL these videos and presenters / speakers are fradulent. Some very well may be, but when is it beyond doubt? You are the judge of that.
Many (notable) skeptics and/or religious individuals are afraid of being wrong. They are afraid of uncertainty. They fear the unknown. Fear makes people lie. There is nothing per se "wrong" with this, it just a human tendency that is helpful to recognize when interpreting events. We've all done it. This is also why "science" has rushed to judgment on many subjects, because uncertainty just makes many uncomfortable. Or they lied to maintain their job, reputation, etc... Or they succumbed to peer pressure to "shape" their views a certain way. Or they are afraid of their life's work / viewpoint being blown up. They are afraid of what it means to their behavior. They are afraid of not being able to explain something. You might enjoy this book - Wisdom of Insecurity
