Six month without food and water?

Post by kiran » Sat Dec 17, 2005 10:34 am

Six months without food and water, isn't that unbeleivable? Well it has happened. A teenage boy in Nepal, is said to be meditating for last six months without food and water. The place has become some sort of pilgrim site for Nepalese and neighbouring Indians. Even international news channel like BBC has given their report on the same topic. Some people even say that he has been bit by snake several times but he has survived. What is this , a miracle or so? Whats the science behind survivng for so long?
tell me........

I know, i said the same thing when i saw
it on BBC.
it is very hard to believe.

but the report also said that he ate some from the root
of the tree he was meditating under.

I don't believe it.
It matters not how strait the gate
How charged with punishment the scroll
I am the Master of my fate
I am the Captain of my soul.

It would be possible like jesus, but such a level of conscious control and neurophysiology with cybernetics between the biophysiology of the human body and its understanding is not capable of being grasped at this current point in time. However, you never know.

But since I'm a critical thinker, i'll assume it's B.S.

My idea of this truly happening would be breathing in your environment like a plant. How the physiology of conscious control makes that happen is beyond me. I assume it would have to be genetic at least.

Of course this isn't a pseduoscience/metaphysics website.
