I once heard somewhere that when someone is zapped by a bolt of electricity, and they fly across the room- that's actually their mind doing it. Somehow, a reactionary reflex happens in their head that makes them jump twenty feet backwards from the thing they are afraid of.
Think of it... that could be a real life super hero. If you could figure out how to jump like that whenever you want? I wish there were smarter people that studied the mind. I wish there were smarter people that studied science. I bet cancer is cureable, and we just judge intelligence by the wrong meters.
