Mind over matter can most simply be defined as the use of willpower or thought to overcome physical problems. Some examples would be Tibetan Monks, who can dry soaked, ice cold rags placed on them by heating up their body temperature during meditation. They can also drastically decrease their heart rate and slow their metabolism down as well. One man learned to stop the flow of blood to certain areas to keep from bleeding while in a concentration camp. Another man played imaginary golf games for nearly a decade while in a Vietnamese prison cell during the war. He just paced around with a stick, acting out games and even having pretend conversations with people he knew. When he got back home, his golf game was better than before. That last one isn't quite the same as the others, but there's no point in being too specific.

With massive dedication, or under extreme circumstances, any person can seemingly develop these powers. Even without those, the placebo effect can have remarkably positive and negative effects on people. It's not what people usually think of as paranormal, but scientists aren't fully capable of explaining it yet.

Post any personal experiences you've had with this or anything interesting you've read.
