Just found these video's of Guillaume Néry, a French freediver specialising in Constant Weight freediving. He's world record holder with a depth of 126m.

That in it self is pretty amazing but he also has a couple of these amazing video's out there. I thought the camera work was amazing and just had to share.

Dive with me into this amazing underwater world...

"Ocean gravity", strong ocean currents and some amazing camera work show this world of the weightlessness.

"Free fall", jump into the deepest sinkhole on Earth

Scene from The passage, The Passage is a 52min documentary following World Champion Freediver in his exploration of Yucatan Peninsula in Mexico.


Hope you enjoyed it as much as I have.

How amazing we humans can be when we set our minds to it.

I closed out ATS and attempted to get back into bed for some shut-eye because it wasn't 6am yet here in Texas. But to no avail. It comes to mind with wide-eyed acknowledgement that these videos, and this man's abilities are the way information is changing us. He may have developed his talent entirely on his own devoid of knowledge of anyone else attaining such feats. Or he may have been enthralled by a video of pearl divers that hold their breath for several minutes. Regardless of how he attained his desire and ability, this information of exceptional human performance is being broadcast to millions that may access it intentionally or serendipitously. Basically, the word is getting out.

More commonly, we see such incredible human abilities in sports. Fair to say, it began--if we need a definite starting point--with the famous Harlem Globetrotters and their trick shots from decades ago. Today, Youtube can call up for you hundreds of trick shots from backyard and schoolyard hotshots that make the HGs seem like pikers. True, many of them non-professionals may have attempted their shot dozens of times before they got the one to post, but the point is, the deed was accomplished and communicated to others far outside of the local witnesses. The key element in all of these exceptional performance displays is that they widely spread the "word" that such things can be done. And others will attempt to improve on the deed.

I suspect this inflation of information transference into actual events can be proven by equating the spread of the internet with increased feats of record breaking in any sport you would care to investigate. Obviously, this spread of information and "doing" does not stop with sports. Any human endeavor can be and is being taught, learned, repeated, copied and improved upon by others that catch that particular desire be it quilting, delving into obscure ancient histories or learning to cast fishing flies. Most of these increased talents go unrecorded or recognized outside of the individual case.

The power of the internet to spread any information exceeds any thoughts--legitimate or not--about the possibility of "The Hundredth Monkey" concept being the way that humans will evolve. While it may be a factor, the flow of information by electronic means from one to another without direct contact from the one to the other will be the way the human animal hones its abilities to adapt, change and improve itself as it struggles along the path.

Thanks for sharing!!
Years ago, for a time, as a young, adventurous spirit, scuba instructor, boat captain I played around with the sport of free diving.
You train your breathing, body stillness & mind.
Never went to the depths this pro goes to but enough to understand the fleeting on the edge freedom journey of these videos.
My sons came along & they became more important than on the edge danger adventure of youth.

Yet I remember…

Started with the Harlem Globetrotters! Only somebody from the US could come up with that. There have been circuses all round the globe for hundreds of years, long before the US existed, with people doing amazing feats.

I suspect the chinese Shoalin Monks might have several decades on the Harlem Globetrotters and with considerably greater skills.

Free Fall is a hoax. He did not free dive to the bottom, just a ledge near the surface. The human body can not stand the depth this video claims. The deepest free dive was a bit over 300 ft.

Nery writes to the Huffington Post: “Nery emailed us to say he never reached the bottom; the distance is so far as to make it impossible. Nery says, ‘This movie is an artistic project, a fiction.’ He shot it with his girlfriend over the course of four afternoons.”

Yeah I found that a bit weird since he is the world record holder with those 300 something feet. I guess it's just the description given by the user who uploaded the video.

Doesn't take away from the fact that those video's are amazing.
