I've read that the Masons have a hidden practice of stimulating the vagus 
nerve, which was considered to be the sin of Adam and Eve.  On YouTube, someone 
published how the vagus nerve was stimulated.  It was a video made by 
fraternity guys in college.  They took turns hitting each other on the side of 
the jaw.  They were basically knocking each other out.  Thus, ends the mystery 
of this practice.  But a former member of the Masons denied the nature of this 
practice.

 Number 5, at least in my set (English: BT?), is the one that seems to 
correspond YS III 31:
 

 kuurma-naaDyaaM* sthairyam.
 

 Some translations:

 [HA]: 
Calmness Is Attained By Samyama On The Bronchial Tube.
 [IT]: (32):
 (By performing Samyama) on the Kurma-nadi steadiness.
 [VH]: 
On the tortoise duct (tortoise), steadiness.
 [BM]: 
From perfect discipline of the “tortoise vein,” one’s being becomes steady.
 [SS]: (32):
 By samyama on the kurma nadi (a subtle tortoise-shaped tube located below the 
throat), motionless in the meditative posture is achieved.
 [SP]: 
(32) By making samyama on the tube within the chest, one acquires absolute 
motionlessness.
 [SV]: (32):
 
 On the nerve called Kurma (comes) fixity of the body.

 I used to think that the "oiling" of joints, less tight muscles and harder 
*rections after doing siddhis was mainly due to flying, but now it seems to me 
the main culprit might well be actually the BT above, after doing it a couple 
of times in isolation, or whatever.
 It seems to me the physiological counterpart of kuurma-naaDii might well be 
the vagus nerve, which is the main parasympathetic nerve, I believe. Wiki:
  The parasympathetic system is responsible for stimulation of 
"rest-and-digest" or "feed and breed"[2] 
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Parasympathetic_nervous_system#cite_note-2 
activities that occur when the body is at rest, especially after eating, 
including sexual arousal https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sexual_arousal, 
salivation https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Salivation, lacrimation 
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tears (tears), urination 
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Urination, digestion 
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Digestion and defecation 
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Defecation. Its action is described as being 
complementary to that of the sympathetic nervous system 
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sympathetic_nervous_system, which is responsible 
for stimulating activities associated with the fight-or-flight response 
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fight-or-flight_response.

  (Sorry for my inaccurate wording. As I've told before, I'm a "grammarian", 
certainly not a "semantician"!)

 * locative (in, at, on, into, etc) singular from naaDii
