    My question:

    Can we use our mind concentration power to control diseases?

    I know there is limit to power of human mind, but we have not explored the limits. As we use glasses for correction of eyesight, we can invent a device to magnify/multiply brain power, so that one can concentrate upto cellular level ,and even correct the bad genes, or cure AIDS or stomach cancer. Or by simply concentrating on ones pathetic and depressing life one brings new positive change. Even such device may not be required.

    such device magnify mind waves or whatever and can funtion on principle of Magnetoencephalography (MEG) or any other technique /science.


    (Applications of MEG include basic research into perceptual and cognitive brain processes, localizing regions affected by pathology before surgical removal, determining the function of various parts of the brain, and neurofeedback.)(wiki)


    Evidence
    with mind we can move things. and this can be acquired with some practice.
    Psychokinesis - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    How to Develop Telekinesis: 7 Steps (with Pictures) - wikiHow
    what about telepathy
    Telepathy - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    what about extended mind theory
    The Extended Mind - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    i am not talking about faith healing or some Guru meditation. it is pure scientific enquiry.

    and my main goal is to answer
    "Question: can our mind power be so strong that it writes code for itself, like some supercomputers, upto DNA/gene level . and help self revolution with evolution, ie self re-evolution".
    (this is gross , so i have put it as heading)

    There is no doubt that how we think can have an impact on our ability to resist certain illnesses, or recover from others. I would suspect that these abilities could be enhanced with a better understanding of the mechanisms. However, as phDemon remarks, there is little evidence for psychokinesis, telepathy etc. Therefore, the more dramatic capabilities you suggest are very unlikely to ever be developed.

    No.

    No.

    However, thinking happy thoughts can reduce/avoid stress such that there are physiological benefits.
    I.E. the patterns of our thoughts can and do affect our health.
    "Mind power" is a phrase which you should remove from your personal lexicon.

    You should read the entire Wiki articles you have cited. Pay special attention to the section on the James Randi prize. The articles do not support your hypothesis as stated.
    The WikiHow article? WikiHow might be an okay source for heuristic instructions on the folding of paper airplanes. However, the article on developing telekinesis is pure unadulterated 100% rot. Were talking fresh unpolishable steaming runny diaper pile here.
    You should study up on the inverse square law. The amount of energy the brain would need to generate to affect objects at just a few centimeters away would quite literally cook the brain as if it were meatloaf in an industrial oven.

    I suspect you are a kid. so I'm being nice. Other than being completely wrong (better than "Not Even Wrong"), your post was at least cogent.
    Remember what Einstein said, "Keep your mind open, just not so open that your brain falls out."

    I would end my post here and go on to discuss the biochemical effects of our mental state and how it impacts our immune system. Stay away from telekinesis or whatever else you linked at the bottom of the post (admittedly, I didn't look at them because that stuff is like nails on a chalkboard to me).

    That would require the collaboration of different members who are knowledgeable about immunology, biochemistry and neurology.
    As such, I cannot but support your idea.
    "The only safe rule is to dispute only with those of your acquaintance of whom you know that they possess sufficient intelligence and self-respect not to advance absurdities; to appeal to reason and not to authority, and to listen to reason and yield to it; and, finally, to be willing to accept reason even from an opponent, and to be just enough to bear being proved to be in the wrong."
