To Mind over body? I went to Wikipedia to check this and that's what they have. Their article is atrocious, by the way. Really really terrible. Totnesmartin 18:57, 8 February 2009 (EST)

Yeah, it does suck, but it only has been alive for... a few minutes. I will move it to M o b, I agree with that Javasca₧ Who said anything about fair?!

More?[edit]

Examples, references? Not bad right now, but more on the adrenalin thing. Also, people who've fucked themselves up doing this stuff - David Gerard (talk) 23:23, 7 May 2010 (UTC)

I'm gonna move the bit about breaking ice and bricks. thats not mind over matter its simple physics and is pretty easy when you learn how and have the proper application of strength--BenB (talk) 01:13, 13 July 2010 (UTC)

I'm wondering if Brain Gym is an example - or more interestingly, whether it's technically the reverse as it's exercising the body to increase the power of the mind.
