Have any of you seen that tv show Heroes? Well if you haven't it is one of my favorites. I started watching the episodes about 2 months ago on netflix. I quickly got addicted already on the 4th season. Anyhow for those of you who haven't seen it. Suddenly when there is an eclipse these humans start realizing they have super powers like healing themselves or others, time travel, moving object with their mind and lots of others. These things are said to be possible because of genetics. I just ordered this book on amazon Heroes tv show real life possibilities. I can't wait to get it and see what it's all about. I have wondered to myself if it could one day be possible. Having some kind of super human powers. I mean just think if we could find out how to use our whole brain. There is a good 90% of it that we don't use, what if we did? Could we fly? Could we do something extra extraordinary? What do you think are real life Heroes possible?

Yes i'm great fan too :) Sadly they stoped it like 4400 too ;( But well i dont think there is possibility for most of the powers , like overthrowing gravity - cuz human body is not light and you dont do anything to fly as we saw as most super powers :) (some people explain supermen like this cuz he lived on planed with low gravity or something like that) Otherwise stoping time and walking in it . There might be possibility to make something to see world going slower but everything + his body will be slowed too . Otherwise the regeneration thing is possible but very hard and you need a lot to eat to regen so fast (you need resources) but i think there is highest possibility that this can be done at all the powers . Cuz well there are animals that regenerate but not that fast , ofcors expereminting one day might do it . All the control of elementals , i dont think you can make fire , lightening and frost and all . Fire is a possibility but well u need a skin from the greek thing that burn but never burn out ;) , Lightening is hard you need some insane moving to create it (hm there is possibility) but for releasing and all i dont think you can control it beside it goes down on the earth . And frost well thats kind of imposible ;) You need to go 0 c to freeze something and i dont think a body will manage with that low tempereture and you need water too a lot of it ;) Well there are a lot others , but sylar power seems most reasonable , not about taking the rest of the people power , but the knoweldge to look at other brains and adjust yours . (there might one day be sciance factors for that :P ) Well i can talk for a lot more but :P So overall there are very lower possibility for most of them and some of them have a higher but overall its going to be a lot hard for abilities like that to come natural and without DNA evolution and adjustment ;) I dont know for Real Life Heroes like that to exist ;) A Hero is someone that help the others so you can call a lot of people Heroes ;)

And yes with a higher inteligence like more 90% witch is 10 times more then original we might just go insane or genius (or both) i think we dont use it all cuz well it might be too much to anyone to handle :P But with 10 times smarter people we can really get to make some of the powers ;)

Thanks for your great input. I agree it's very possible. I wish I could see into the future and see just how possible.

I've seen it too- from episode one i got hooked. But then after three seasons ( i haven't even finished the 3rd one) I just stopped watching it... I think it is quite possible to have real life heroes ( people with powers); maybe it's one sign of evolution or mutation..When people almost all parts of their brain,they become..KYLE XY (you should watch that too) :D

I think that there are a lot of things that human beings would be able to do if we were able to use our whole minds, however, I don't think that the possibilities of what human beings would be able to do if we were able to use our entire brains. That said, I do think that the world would be a much different place if people were able to think with everything that we have. I think that the possibilities would be limited, but I think that they would be a lot different than they are right now.

I think if we really learned all there is to know about the human body that the possibilities might be endless. Just looking at the progression of genetics and other studies is a sign of what could be to come.

Hi natnickeep! I am also a big fan of the Heroes Tv series. I am just sad that the show got canceled. I guess there were already many big stars in that show that they could not afford anymore the expenses. Anyways, as for the real life Heroes. I think there real Heroes right now! But they don't have super powers or something like that. But they have the equal courage, big heart and dedication to help other people in their own ways. :)

Yes I agree also. There are heroic people. But I am just questioning the possibility scientifically. Could we naturally or find a way to change humans genes to be able to adapt and defy the laws of nature we thought were set in stone? Oh and that sux it was canceled. I am on the fourth season, when does it get canceled lol. Does it leave off at a sucky ending? You shouldn't of told me that darnet. Now I am afraid to watch anymore.

okay. Well do you think it is possible for humans genes to evolve to where they can do special things. Like grow new tissue cells, fly, or any other things impossible for humans today? The question was more about the science behind the tv show not the show it's self.
