I read about this "experience" - they took an ice cube and matches. A man was blindfolded and a match was lit under his nose so that he could smell it, and then touched him with ice. The human brain associated this with smell and mistook ice for a hot match. Something like this

Of course you can. Here is a little about it:

TheQuestion: we will find those who will answer your questions.

The question is - within what limits.

Here you can note something interesting. Once I tried to find some data on the famous "induced burns".

The Internet and popular literature are full of mentions that scientists managed to convince people that they touch hot objects and at the same time people got burn marks.

Unfortunately, this is one of those cases when Google is useless, and the systemic knowledge of specialists is required. In a heap of useless links, I found only that the experiments were definitely carried out, but they were carried out a long time ago, until half of the last century. The results were questioned for reasons of mental illness of the participants in the experiments and some obvious forgeries. And then they were stopped altogether for ethical reasons. An example of mentions.

So the question of the limits of suggestibility remained open. How strong a sensation can be instilled in oneself and how strong a sensation can, on the contrary, be suppressed.

Maybe. There is such an amazing thing - self-hypnosis, which scientists cannot explain. In general, the result of self-hypnosis depends on the attitudes of the person. Rumor has it that even some diseases can be cured. :)
