not unlike the Force in Star Wars. And the scientific truth is that no such thing exists.
qualification: that our current knowledge know of. the knowledge of the universe is currently beyond us. to say that we know everything that is possible and not, is very arrogant. we don't even know enough about our segment of the galaxy, much less the universe. what's impossible here, might be possible elsewhere.
as far as the Force goes, i like the Sith approach much better. the Sith way is to zap you with lightning then send you the electric bill afterward. if you don't get kill by the lightning, then the bill would kill you.
