Human is a wonderful creature. No wonder we are called the crown of creation. Human abilities are truly endless and scientists still cannot explain some of them. No wonder it is considered that we use only a small part of our brain. Here are people who could do extraordinary things.

Fire-walking is one of those strange things that lots of us wonder about – people seem to be able to do it without getting burnt and without feeling pain.
In some countries fire-walking is an important religious ritual. This unusual ability was first tested in 1935. An Indian man called Kuda Bux walked on red-hot coals. The fire’s temperature was 300 degrees C, but his feet weren’t burnt and he felt no pain. Scientists who examined Kuda Bux’s feet said they weren’t even warm!
On April 14, 1985, about a thousand people gathered at the California Institute of Technology sports field to see a demonstration of fire-walking. After the demonstration some brave young men decided to try and walk over fire. By the end of the afternoon 125 people had walked through a pit of fire without feeling pain.
Scientists now agree that this is an example of the power of the mind over the body.

In April 1934, a young woman from Italy began to have a very unusual problem. When she was sleeping, a blue light came from her body. When she woke up, it disappeared.
