I've been following the thread to page 12 and got tired of reading the same old tired 'show me the peer reviewed literature' song.
I'm a bit puzzled why intelligent and rational individuals insist that nothing is real if it hasn't been 'scientifically studied by a prestigious
institute and peer reviewed'?
Perhaps they are just saying 'I don't believe' as an opinion, although I'm sure I read a lot of posts proclaiming the idea of living without food
and water as 'impossible' as if it were the truth.
Anyhow, I'm not saying I believe or disbelieve. Personally I'd rather suspend disbelief and keep an open mind on the stuff we have very little
experience with in mainstream culture.
So my best mate, whose integrity I trust implicitly, recently met a young lady who claims to have gone 9 months without food or water (after 6 years
preparation), and is preparing to return to that lifestyle.
Yes, he could be being a little naieve, but he's convinced she's genuine.
I've asked him to register with ATS and give second hand feedback in this thread and perhaps ask the lady in question to comment, rather than my 3rd
hand testimony, however, after seeing the treatment Drew Hempel has received after generously sharing his own experiences, I'm considering suggesting
he doesn't bother.
For someone who's done the work on themselves to get anywhere near that level of development, I can't see why they'd want to subject themselves to
blind rebuttal and moronic calls of 'show us the peer reviewed paper on your personal experience'.
I am very surprised Drew hangs around for so long.
