There is also the case of a man named Leonard Orr. As others have said in this thread, he talked about the quality of life and creating a life that you would want to continue living as well as breathing correctly. He claimed he was taught in India by Yogi Masters who were over 300 years old. I have a book with a picture of him sitting very calm and focused. The claim is made that he sat in this position for 45 days without moving or food for 45 days. I'm not saying that is 100% true. That is somewhat hard to believe but not out of the realm of possibility. Extending the perceived limits of our bodies is always an intriguing concept. We all want to beat the system in some way!

Fascinating - thanks for the story. I am not nearly smart enough to know - do we have a geneticist or biologist in the house that can explain whether some type of genetic mutation might allow a person to live this long? Excess production of white blood cells / ability to better absorb and utilize antioxidants / etc?


Yes, DNA holds the key to an extended life.
There are some biological toggle switches.
It is very rare but a few people are born with 1 toggle switch ON and
3 turned off. These people only live to be about 40 years old.
At the age of 40 they appear to look 85 years old.
They grow old just like us but at a faster rate.
It's easy to see that you just have to compare their DNA with a normal
persons DNA. OH! There they are. Switches for an extended life span!
We currently have 2 switches on and 2 switches off.
That gives us a life span of about 80 years old.
If you turn all 4 biological toggle switches on you can live to be
over 200 years old. Unfortunately, that would bankrupt Social
Security fast. I guess you would have to forfeit your Social Security
$$$ before you get the Gene Therapy shot in the arm.

The Law of One says, that the first human lifes on earth almost 75,000 years ago lived for 900 years on average and its our laziness/bellicose attitude and waring with our brothers that has caused this age we experience now. For, if we had stayed on the spiritual path as our chinese friend here we would have never lost our 900 year life span. Just a theory to consider is all.

Hahah lol who the hell in their right mind would want to live to 250 years old in this 21st century crap whole we call Earth anyways? Maybe 2000K years ago I'd love to be 900 years old when the Earth was so pure and so pristine. But nowadays? No thanks. I wanna exit this life as fast as possible. If I live a good life and die at 85 I'll be plenty happy. 250 years of more taxes, more debt, more traffic, lol.

I was under the impression that telomere splitting have a hard limit of about 125 years, after that, full system shutdown. If that is true, this story is fiction.

Make like a tree and... not split, but live forever. Hmmmm...

Possibly a conjunction of many factors, alien or not, but most importantly good design and design of philosophy and outlook may preserve physical matter. My martial arts teacher is 60+ but looks to be in his early 40's. He's energetic and powerful beyond comprehension. Chi gong.

waiting till 85 is not as fast as possible.
I bet if you truely wished to leave asap, you could have it done in 10 minutes. :-)

Your world is your perception...if all you see is taxes, debt, and traffic, then you might wish to change your perception.

or go camping.

incidently, I dont want to live forever, but I dont want to be dead forever either.

such inconsistancies.

I guess everyone wants a fresh start without a complete brain wipe (if we could remember our former reincarnations come the age of like 40, that would be perfect...if reincarnations were actually happening that is)

Hang in there.
Earth will be a wonderful place in about 10 years.
We have a great "Game Changer" arriving Dec. 21, 2012.
It will take a few years to get the advanced technology
in use. Hovercraft / Shuttle craft will be here.
We will be mining Helium 3 on the moon.
We will be mining the asteroid belt out past Mars.

Just hang in there.

Interesting story but need to see his long form birth certificate, bet he was born in Hawai
I would take a story coming out of China with a pinch of salt, if this was true he would have b en dragged in by the leading Communist party to have tests run on him to see what made him live for so long, plus 256 years, I think the water in his eyes would turn to dust

I was thinking the same thing, spending 100 years collecting herbs....

Perhaps he found out a mixture that gave him such long life.

Or a small combination of pwderized herbs he took daily, like a vitamin, that was the key to his long life.

Although I'm "highly" skeptical of someone living to be 256 years old. Heck I doubt anyone has ever lived past 150.

There's a part of me that wants to believbe this.

But for everyone wishing immortality, be careful. Forever is a long time.

I know I would not want to live forever. But 150 years might be fun. Although I remeber my Nana, saying at around age 80 (and she was a very active lady, even at that age), that she was just getting tired of everything. Bored with foods, and the daily routines ect.

Anyhow very interesting article, never even heard of this guy till now.

Why is this so mysterious?
We are taught that man lived "thousands" of years old in the bible and religions base their belief on that.
For those of you that haven't been on the path very long, you might want to read..."The Life and Teachings of the Masters of the Far East...by Baird T. Spalding.. publisher is DeVorss & Co.
When you are done digesting those, go and find "Great Masters of the Himalayas"..Their lives and Teachings.....by Rishi Singh Gherwal....www.kessingerpub.com
Read the accounts of the things that have gone on in the past that you don't see on Fox news and won't ever see on CNN cause they can't comprehend it...
Then go and read this......

Ambassador of the Sun

By: Christine Walsh

Published: August 2006

Hira Ratan Manek says he has not eaten solid food since June 18, 1995, but he bristles at the suggestion of trying to secure a spot in the Guinness Book of World Records. The 68-year-old, who says the practice of sun gazing has converted his body into a "solar chip" that subsists on energy from the sun and plenty of water, has a more important mission. The self-proclaimed "ambassador of sun" is out to profess the benefits of solar healing. The sun, he says, can increase brain capacity, eliminate mental illness, spur weight loss and cure diseases. "I am spreading this message all over the world so that human welfare and world peace come very easily," says Manek, a native of Kerala. While Manek became interested in sun gazing as a child, it was after his 1992 retirement from his family's shipping and spice trading business that he began to research and study the ancient practice. The method had been practiced in ancient times by many civilizations, including the Egyptians, the Greeks and the Native Americans, but mostly had been forgotten. Manek spent three years working on rediscovering the secrets of sun gazing, according to his biography. During his study, he was mainly inspired by the teachings of Lord Mahavir of the Jain religion, who practiced sun gazing 2,600 years ago. In 1995, Manek achieved the non-eating phase of sun gazing. He drinks only water, he says, except for an occasional cup of tea, coffee or buttermilk for hospitality and social purposes. He says he does not miss the taste of food. Manek says he has been happy to turn his body over to scientists and physicians for observation during three separate periods in which he lived on sun energy and water alone. The longest was a 411-day stretch in 2000-01 in Ahmedabad, under the watch of an international team. Manek was later invited to the Thomas Jefferson University and the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia, where scientists who observed him for 130 days included brain specialist Dr. Andrew Newberg. While scientists who have studied him have agreed that his hunger is being eliminated, they have been unable to explain why sun gazing has this effect, Manek says. According to Manek, medical science is causing "needless hysteria and paranoia" with its credos that the sun should be completely avoided for fear of eye damage and skin cancer. Sun gazing done properly can even improve eyesight and stave off cataracts and glaucoma, he says. "There's no record of anyone going blind [by looking at the sun]," he says. "And if you remain away from safe sunlight, you get cancer and so many diseases." The key word here is "safe." Manek stresses that the eyes are delicate organs and prescribes a slow, careful foray into sun gazing. A first-timer should spend just 10 seconds looking at the sun during either the day's first or last hour of sunlight – what he says has been scientifically proven to be safe sun time. This should be done while standing on bare ground – dirt, not grass – with bare feet. One's sun-gazing time should increase by 10-second intervals each day until, after three months, it reaches 15 minutes. "Sun is not fast food," Manek says. "It's a nectar of light. Taste it very slowly, then better results, you'll get." At this point, the sun begins to have an effect on what Manek calls the "brainuter" (i.e.,brain-computer). The sunlight, he says, removes all of the "dirt and dust" inside a person, negative traits like anger, jealousy and greed. "Fear of death goes away," he says. "You become full of self-confidence. You think positively." A three-month sun gazer still experiences some hunger for food, Manek says. At six months, a gazer is "liberated from diseases," he says. If a person's goal is physical health, he can give up the practice permanently. Manek urges such a person to walk on bare earth for 45 minutes a day while barefoot to remain healthy. "You will never feel physical illness ever in your life," he says. "That is a guarantee. Sun is insurance." Then, he jokes, "One thing is not covered under this: If you meet with an accident." To Manek's knowledge, almost 50 people worldwide have joined him in the journey beyond the six months to the non-eating stage. He calls it a "higher form of spiritual exercise." According to Manek, the human body needs energy, but not necessarily from food. He says the sun gives him everything he needs to survive and has benefited him in other ways as well. While most people barely use 5 percent of their brains, an MRI has shown that Manek uses about 25 percent, he says. He walks six or seven miles a day, barefoot, and sleeps just four or five hours a night.

This is the real deal. It can be confirmed that he lived over 150 years but the 200 mark is not full documented.

He was a user of the herb Ho Shu Wu. I highly recommend it.
