Yes, I believe we will evolve into people with abilities like shooting fire from the fingers for the evolutionary purpose of lighting our cigarettes without a lighter.

This thread was moved from Philosophy, Sociology & Psychology.

Reason:
This thread is better suited to the M&P forum. You'll get a better response there.

I think it is possible time is moving us into more thought responsive space of the Universe. Although my understanding of the technicalities may be way off, the short answer to your question would be Yes.

Nothing evolutionary about it...

Have existed for thousands of years at least...

Called Siddhis, Pantanjali mentions them in his Yoga Sutras.

Let me add, not considered so "super", the desire for super powers is a false desire, which leads no where, which is why the Yogis/Sadhus don't put so much worth to acquiring Siddhis.  They come naturally, with mind/spiritual/self progression. 

What is interesting is reading some of the austerities that these amazing men and woman endure in reach for spiritual enlightenment.

Indeed. Ram Dass talks about acquiring these powers along the Yogic path. I'd speculate the next few years will include some form of fast tracked spiritual evolution for the majority of humanity.

If I am not mistaken he is in that link I posted about Sadhus and their austerities. 

I believe this because there is another Sadhu on that link that is a what they call a "milk Baba", meaning he only drink two glasses of milk a day, and a banana...that's all.

They have amazing rituals and traditions...true masters.
