Does matter really matter?

Of course matter very definitely seems to matter to those who let it matter. This statement may seem a mere play on words, but it goes much deeper than that. Matter cannot speak for itself. It corresponds to what we think about it. Our acceptance of its claims is the only thing that seems to give it substance or life.

For example, many of the fakirs in India can walk on hot coals without singeing their feet or lie on a nail-studded board without shedding blood. To some extent they have defied certain claims of matter. While it might be foolhardy for most to attempt such feats, these instances do show that the human consciousness can exercise control over matter far beyond what is normally practiced.
