Humans Can Thrive Without Food: Fact Or Fiction?
On May 3rd 2013, the Spiritually based endeavor, "Living On Light" began an experiment designed to demonstrate that the human body is capable of thriving without food. In order to test the validity of this assumption, one subject, Naveena Shine (the founder of "Living On Light") has put herself in a controlled environment for a period of four to six months with no food and only water, tea and coffee to drink. She is now at day ten. Her every move is being filmed and archived for future reference. Eventually the whole experiment can be viewed live on the internet.
Naveena created "Living On Light" proposing that humans have what might be an innate system that is capable of deriving nourishment from a source other than carbon based food. She is calling that source, "Light." As early as 1910 Richard Steiner, scientist and philosopher, proclaimed that "Matter is Condensed Light." Breatharians, Sun-gazers and Yogis have claimed the capacity to "Live On Light" for centuries but without hard evidence their claims have been dismissed and ridiculed.
Since death is what normally occurs when a person does not eat food, she warns people not to try this. It might be untrue or it might be that there are certain criteria needed in terms of physical, mental and spiritual readiness. Naveena herself sees her whole life as a Spiritual event and she frequently challenges commonly held assumptions. She is named in the Guinness Book of Records (1997) for having walked barefoot across the hottest fire in the world. (pitt.edu/~dwilley/Fire/FireTxt/record.html).
When asked if she could "Live On Light" she said, "I don't know. My agenda is to find out. I did not know I could walk on fire until I did it."
If it is shown to be true that human beings do not have to eat food to thrive, the information will extend beyond all boundaries of race, politics, wealth, culture and religion. It will reach into every aspect of the lives of every individual on our planet and give us choices around how we live and how we use our resources.
