I take that as a challenge. . It will take humanity the time and effort we are willing to put into it. "It's not that I'm so smart, it's just that I stay with problems longer." (Albert Einstein)

It's not that you can take the pain away mentally it's that you can look past it to accomplish your goal.

I'm a big believer in gutting thru the pain on humps and runs the whole mind over matter thing. But certain types of pain you need to pay attention to. Say sharp stabbing pains in your knee. Because some types of pain are a warning from your body that something is wrong.

its true! i was watching the discovery channel and this guy that was a pro in some wierd artform claimed he could block all pain from his body. he had people hit him with sticks and punch and kick him. he even had someone kick him betwixt the legs.

Just a guess, but after having been "kicked betwixt the legs" a few times, everything else probably seemed relative.

Yeah, if it is serious Pain then you do not want to be the macho guy, because when you do go down, you will be a liability to the rest of your section.

Nulli, you think too much-Thats a good Choice.


However I believe it is a state of mind.
