Real Life Magneto, Man Can Attach Metal to His Body
making him the real-life Magneto!
X-Men villain Magneto has the ability to control metal and have them
stick to his body using psychic ability, and while Miroslaw Magola
doesn't want to end the human race, he does seem to share similar
Without using glue or any other sticky helpers, the German wonder
claims to use psychic brain powers to attach objects to various parts
of his body.
His mental powers are so strong he can even jump around with drinks
cans, pots and pans or cutlery stuck to forehead, hands or chest.
Rather than being born with these 'powers', Magola said he researched
the phenomenon of psychic energy, and exerts mind over matter –
'connecting' himself to objects.
NO GLUE: Magola denies using adhesives to stick objects to his body
The 55-year-old said: "I found out I could train myself to manipulate
lifeless objects as I studied for my degree in the early 90s.
"I have since spent years perfecting the technique and exploring
further into human magnetism.
"I can defy gravity because I load myself with energy and – like
moving a limb – can make objects do as I wish like a real life magnet.
"I am determined to develop my unique powers further in the future and
I'm currently working with telepathy and healing to see how
psychokinetic energy can be put to a use that will benefit mankind."
ABILITIES: The boffin is hoping to win a large cash prize for his abilities
Despite wanting to change mankind for the better, Magola does have one
eye on a $1 million prize – that has been unclaimed for decades – for
anyone that can prove they have supernatural powers.
The One Million Dollar Paranormal Challenge was launched by famed
magician and sceptic James Randi in 1964 for anyone who can show
evidence of faith-healing, telepaths, psionics, dowsing, precognative
psychic friends with astral bodies, past life remembrance, or spectral
manifestations of any kind.
Magola said of the prize: "I have been waiting many years, training
and researching techniques, in order to challenge for the $1million
"I want to do it live on TV and cannot wait to get a reaction from an
audience and prove to sceptics who claim it is all a hoax."
MANKIND: The German wants to use his abilities to help humans
The father-of-one denies he is faking his abilities, and says that
anyone can master the abilities if they put their mind to it.
He added: "Magnetic people prove with mind power they are capable of
lifting objects of different materials off the floor without aid.
This can be done with the head or palms of the hands to hold objects
vertically, horizontally or in circular movements.
Some magnetic people are also capable of lifting objects from the
floor with the palm of a gloved hand or even with talcum powder on the
You don't have be a scientist to see the difference in the
demonstrations between magnetic people and sceptics, who attempt to
fool people uses cheating techniques."
X-MEN: The powers are similar to hose of comic-book villain Magneto
Some parapsychologists share Magola's view, believing that people can
train their mind in order to affect the physical world.
Metaphysics expert Dr Ellie Crystal said: "Everyone has the potential
to be able to be telekinetic.
Telekinesis is created by higher levels of consciousness. It cannot be
created by 'wishing it' to happen on the physical level.
The energy to move or bend an object is created by a person's thoughts
created by their subconscious mind."
Or being born a mutant like Magneto…
