The ideal for many of us is to be superhuman – to be better in our own human form, or for some attaining the perfection of mental or psychic superiority. For aeons humans have seen themselves as the most intelligent beings, the masters, or even the center of the universe, before Copernicus opened us up to the mechanism of our solar system, and thus our galaxy. Before then, and still now, we were always desiring to be better than most.
For many our higher powers have mostly taken on the form of the human, or better yet the man or masculine. The idea of becoming an animal, or even worse, a cursed female, was seen as a punishment for being an inefficient human. This was seen in the quaint but powerful cult of Pythagoras, where attaining the ideal both numerically as well as humanly were to be earned, and that becoming an animal would be the punishment for being a poor person or not being able to follow through on society’s morals.
We seems to have either a reward for being a good and moral person, or we will have a punishment for not being so, and this can be found in many fables, myths and cults throughout history. We have always idealized our human self, often forgetting the genius found in animals and the extreme abilities plants have to survive hostile conditions.
For some being a human with a superhuman strength or power is the ultimate goal – a symbol of their genius, their higher function as a person, or their moral correctness. Yet, for many who are bestowed any real extra power it can be a curse and burden beyond comprehension.
For those of us who experience extra-sensory perception (ESP) this can often be a deep burden, because it can confuse or terrify anyone from a dogmatic religious background or a society that may not support these inherent gifts, or because it may show too many painful realities. For many others too, life is not long enough to learn to understand these gifts, and the application of superpowers can usually be seen used in stories that contain power struggles with a central theme for revenge, which is a sign of the brevity of our lifetimes and the immatureness and insecurities we carry through life.
So in fact many of the characters we read about in the mythos of superpowers could be in fact entirely untrained gifted humans. We have for example here some versions of mental powers that have been demonstrated as psi-abilities and not necessarily ‘superpowers’ such as:
Innate Capability – the ability to have complete knowledge without study
Ecological Empathy – being able to sense climate or environmental changes
Omni-lingualism – the ability to understand any language
Omniscience – knowing everything including spiritual knowledge
Superhuman Mentality – genius and the ability to resist mind control and psychic attacks
Superhuman Tracking – the ability to find anyone anywhere without aid (sometimes called Pathfinding)
All of these talents could have been gleaned through specific interests and experiences – through a certain upbringing or even a basic desire for learning. These are all examples of basic qualities that have potential to be ‘superhuman’, when in fact it could be that we are actually very intelligent creatures who if trained can be very good at memory, reason and creativity.
For example, psychic protection could be learned by any number of people with good spiritual or religious training. Thus, most ESP qualities or even talents can be traced back to situations where an exposure to an event could have caused a child of human background to hone these qualities.
The tracking talent is an interesting talent, as the person would have to be of a predatory or stalking-hunting nature, whereas omni-lingualism would be attained perhaps more by someone with a conciliatory nature, so one can see that no one personality type is to blame.
And for those persons who do manage to materialize their powers to a higher degree, which I will explain in my next essay, life in itself is not simple, and can actually become a greater burden. In these cases I think perhaps a superpower such as the ability to neutralize or make ineffective your powers, would be needed, but an improbability, as many superpowers seem to become so out of their own free will and thus, nothing can change them. The only solution for anxious, sociopathic, maternal or perhaps narcissistic personality types (all three being very different) would be inclusion, therapy and education, of which many of these institutions are still lacking in our own modern world.
