Everyone wants to have a superpower, this to be superior over their fellow human. Athletes in professional sports are paid handsomely because of special ability, displaying subhuman performance with their speed, determination, and agility. Then there are those who are thought to be born with paranormal abilities, which sounds weird, since they’re of a supernatural nature. There’s scientific proof however, that there are people who displays certain abnormal set of “skills” that can’t be explained, which sounds like science fiction. Psychic ability has been frowned upon for centuries, as many consider them to be spooky, evil, or a scam.
Pyrokinesis is the ability to start or put out fires at will, and thought to be the explanation when it comes to spontaneous human combustion, which is a very real occurrence. Although many see the ability to control fire as a hoax, there are numerous known instances that prove pyrokinesis does occur. A well documented case is a 3 year old girl, who was able to who incinerate her pillows in front of astonished witnesses.
9. Extra Sensory Perception ESP
What ESP refers to is a person who reveals unknown information without using their five senses. There’s a shroud of doubt which surrounds this ability, because of the method that’s used when testing this power, which are the infamous Zenar cards. Someone who’s presumed to have ESP, is required to guess the card patterns using the power of their mind. Skeptics think guessing the patterns correctly isn’t supernatural, but it’s rather just calculating or guessing the 1 to 5 odds.
Similar to telepathy, what clairvoyance does is implies communicating with others, this without using their primary senses, or without exchanging information. Those who are opponents to this remains skeptical because what clairvoyants claim, is that they get their information from the spirit world. Nonetheless, there’s been numerous instances where clairvoyants revealed information only the person knew, such as from deceased relatives.
