another breatharianism convert?

Grab your bear can or camp chair, kick your feet up and chew the fat about anything Sierra Nevada related that doesn't quite fit in any of the other forums. Within reason, (and the HST rules and guidelines) this is also an anything goes forum. Tell stories, discuss wilderness issues, music, or whatever else the High Sierra stirs up in your mind.

another breatharianism convert?

Postby markskor » Sun Mar 02, 2014 12:32 pm

Not sure what ever happened to our own convert, (last year) but...

Ukranian model Valeria Lukyanova, who has come to be known as the "human Barbie," now claims she doesn't consume food or water anymore, according to the dailymail.co.uk.
That would be called starving yourself in some circles, but the model, 23, has said she is now converting to "breatharianism": training herself to live off only light and air."In recent weeks I have not been hungry at all; I'm hoping it's the final stage before I can subsist on air and light alone," she has said. A breatharian is someone who never eats or drinks because they can exist on "cosmic micro-food," the website said.
What else should you know about her? She has said that she is a spiritual teacher and can speak with aliens through light, she thinks she has the ability to time travel and has had out-of-body experiences, the site says. And that she's probably from Venus.

Perhaps she can hook up with our HST buddy circusoflife and they can hike barefoot through the sierras and have super ultra light packs since they don't have to carry food or water. :wink:

Breatharianism is only an intermediate step to true enlightenment.

Advanced practitioners have learned to forgo air and subsist only on the cosmic consciousness. :lol:

Now if you could only live on helium, that would put some bounce in your step!

If you combine the two, Circus with no shoes or clothing and now this young lady (?)) who needs no food or drink, the two of them together could completely revolutionize ultra light backpacking as we know it :eek: . My pack would likley still be about 40 pounds as I would just bring more fishing tackle, but whats wrong with bringing 7 rods, reels, and a large Plano tackle box!!!. :unibrow: If your not eating, drinking, or wearing any clothes, do you need a tent, raingear, or a sleeping bag??? :retard: :eek: Just wondering!!!!
If you stand in the light, you get the feel of the night, and the music that plays in your ear......
In your mind you can hear, a voice so sweet and clear, and the music that plays in your head......
As it flows up from the ground, taking all that hear the sound, close your eyes, it’s about to begin.

We talked about this idea awhile back with another hiker on here that wanted to do this. I don't remember how his trip went or if we heard.

I always keep an open mind because if nothing else I like to understand what people believe and why. This idea I cannot say I think has any truth to it at all. If it did why have people been dying of starvation throughout all of human history and continue to this day? Why do they die if they can just stand in the sun and feed up? Do they claim that quantum physics play a part and that if you just really believe it's true then it will be? We and all other animals are simple biological machines and if we weren't meant to eat food then we would not have an entire system dedicated to doing so.

Here's the low-down from a more or less reputable source:
