The story about the Russian experiment
There was once a prisoner who was given the "Hang to Death" punishment. The Russian scientist met him & asked if he would like to do something for humanity while dying. They wanted him for an experiment test where instead of hanging to death he would be bitten by snake. The prisoner found "No loss" in this deal. So the papers were signed & the prisoner was given to the scientist for conducting their deadly experiment.
In the experiment a very venomous snake was shown to the prisoner. It was told that his eyes will be closed by a cloth & then this snake would bite him and he would die. They wanted to note the reactions how fast the poison mounts the body. The prisoner agreed. They closed his eyes with a cloth.
Now instead of the venomous snake they took a needle & pinched on the forefinger of his leg. Within few seconds his body became blue & bubble & foam started coming out of the mouth just as in case of a real snake bite! Mind power over body power? What we believe happens? Does faith or reverse faith works?!! Some of this questions are still unanswered & unproved.
