This article is extremely interesting, if you have the time I highly suggest that you give it a good read.
The mind is powerful and if you learn how to condition it a certain way you can alter reality. Not only can you possibly alter the reality of thing but you also may be able to modify matter. Studies using dying sheets and monks or the placebo pill effects demonstrate the power of mind over matter. With the proper training of the brain most people can obtain small accounts of mind control. If you dedicate a life to brain training like monks do, then you can have complete physical and mental mind control so that physical matter does not affect you.
