Ok as most of the members expressed thier thoughts on this subject through a seperate post on this community I shall follow the general trend.

Personally with me it isnt so much a question of how far I believe in Legends, the mythical and the supernatural its more a case of how far I believe in the power of belief and the human mind. Personally I have no doubts that the mind itself is the most powerful weapon humanity can utilize and is also the most potent force within the world mankind inhabits to date and belief is something spawned from the human mind. Also despite modern science being able to explain away many of lifes mysteries now I also believe that regardless of how advanced science becomes there will always be some things that science and logic cannot explain. The reason for this is that regardless of what angle you are looking at it from life isnt logical. Hence why Ive often been known to say 'Im afraid im not a very logical person but its alright as life isnt logical either'. The most common example of this would be the bumble bee as our most advanced knowledge in the laws of physics dictate that with its preportions of wings and bodyweight it should be impossible for this thing to fly it is a completely illogical creature. Yet regardless of what all our knowledge in physics say not only does this thing fly but it flies and functions as an organism quite well but does the universe give a damn? Quite simply put, no it doesnt. Once you remove logic from the equation and take into account that belief is born from something so powerful it has the potential to create and diffuse events of cataclysmic preportions and resolve situations that all the armys in the world could not many things become possible.

It is proven that we only use something like 10-20% of our brain and no one has a clue what the rest is there for yet think of all that we have accomplished with that tiny fraction of our potential? It gets you thinking doesnt it? It also actually HAS been proven that there are people that posess mental abilities that would be considered supernatural so do these people perhaps somehow use more of thier brain than your average human being? Im afraid I do not know of the awnser to that question myself I only know that it is proven that some people have supernatural mental capacity and have not had the time to look into it further. Considering that the brain also controls and co ordinates the entirety of the human body to me it only seems reasonable to think that what the person in question truly believes is going to have quite an affect on thier charactersitics, attributes and mannerisms. However the question is to what extent? I dont doubt that there is some truth behind legends and myths perhaps such legends were simply about great heros and villans ages ago who were then deified/demonised and given supernatural attributes such as shape shifting in order to ensure that they were immortalized or perhaps such legends and myths spring from a minority of people who through thier belief obtained these certain supernatural attributes and characteristics and so then were percieved as such powerful figured by the general populace. That would certaintly explain why we rarely hear of such things now as the convenience of modern science would have meant that most of us are less open to such a possiblity and certaintly removes the necessity to explore such an avenue. I am certaintly not one to underestimate the power of forces such as the human mind and belief or the possibilties that could be produced by them.

Could Tara have certain attributes common among those of a vampiric nature if her mind had enough of an interest in them or believed in the possibility of thier existance enough. Well it seems to me that from her post she certaintly does and my own best friend Laura also posesses many such characteristics she described such as the pale skin, burning in the sun without tanning and feeling uncomfortable around sunlight. Heck Laura even used to have fangs (the braces placed on her by the othradontist got rid of them much to my dismay) and Laura certaintly has a deep interest in both vampires and the Wiccan religion. So yeah Laura certaintly has such charactistics too and she also definately has the necessery belief and interest. Could people posses the ability to shapeshift thire physical appearance to that of certain animals if they believed in the possibility of being able to do so enough? I certaintly wouldnt rule it out as impossible much of our physical characteristics and attributes are determined by our belief in what our bodies are capable of doing and in what the humans are capable of doing or have the potential to do in general. As for myself while I have certain qualitys that could be viewed as odd such as the fact sometimes my pulse randomly stops or at least to become too faint for even my mother (who is a very qualified nurse) to detect without me displaying any of the conditions or qualities often associated with not having a pulse and sometimes I have had dreams of events that have come to pass but little that could fit in with any legend or myth. However I would not expect that to be the case as rather than focusing on resultants that are from branches of the human mind (such as vampiric attributes or shapeshifting could or could not be viewed as a resultant of an emphasis on the branch of belief) I prefer to examine the source my mind itself as to me that is what has unlimited potential and if someone were able to understand the mind completely they would be at a great advantage so I have always taken great pains to try and develop my mind as a whole rather than to just develop certain parts of it. Not to say that I am superior to others of course its just the way I see things.

thats really interesting and i agree with you about the powers of the human mind.

the only thing that i dissagree with is the bumble bee thing... and thats because i heard that whoever did that research did the research in a very silly way... they tested the bumble bee as if it were an airplane... but it is really more like a hummingbird. altho i really cant tell you whether this is true or not because i have a terribly hard believing that anyone doing any research at all could be so terribly dense... im too tired to look it up right now... :\

but i do think that we can "will" ourselves to make certain things happen even subconsciously... and since i believe thats possible, then i suppose that it is also possible that the bumble bee can will itself into the air.

its just that i think it can be attributed to "mind over matter" as in some kind of wave, vibration... some kind of "tuning" --thats the best way i can phrase it -- into the physical world that we are unare of being able to do or doing... so i think its some kind of "quantum" or "hyper" "meta" physical kind of thing i guess...

...my fascination is that information is all around us... its just that we cant always "see" it to the point that we are aware of it...

Thanks Fuckeu and as you seem to be interested in what the American government may or may not be up to you may want to take a look at this

Im not as to whether its true or plausable but it certaintly is an interesting read if you are into such things.

As to what you said about the bumble bee it still makes sense to me. I mean look at the thing for an insect it is huge and bloated and in preportion to the rest of the body its wings are tiny. Birds have to spend the majority of thier life eating because flying uses up so much energy and birds a very well streamlined and practically built for the purpose of flying. A bumble bee is far from streamlined or aerodynamic and yet it still happily buzzes around its life regardless.
