Chi energy is not physical, and I doubt our bodies can convert it to proteins/fats/carbs. Sun energy would require something like chlorophylls to capture and even then, the amount of energy created wouldnt be enough to take you beyond a state of coma. There are two parts to the human body, the physical and the spiritual. Meditation feeds the spiritual, food feeds the physical.

You could give this some more thought and then you can see how it is possible.

What is matter?
Energy condensed down to a slower vibration rate. The entire universe is some form of energetic vibrations at varying rates, amplitudes and phases. All matter is 99% empty space. Science has shown that what we call matter is affected by our conscious attention.
Taking that into account, it seems entirely possible that with certain tricks of the trade and a lot of practice, that we could focus our mind to capture chi or prana, as the yogis call it, to be used in or bodies to sustain us.
Remember that even our rational sciences don't tell us the complete story. Anything is possible. Wink

Sounds possible, but what are the chances this guy is real? This would mean he hasn't ate/drank since he was 13.

even in Buddhist tales, the person who is fasting long-term is said to ingest a grain of rice or an hemp seed per day...
I'm sure this guy has eaten, but probably very little. I've been in some some tough situations before, and as you eat less and less, you need less and less to be satisfied. Personally, (unless I've got the munchies!) I tend to eat one small meal a day, as I believe the excesses in the American diet and the food pyramid (created by the USDA - not the FDA,) are constructs of government and business as a tool of profit production and control. If people live their entire life believing that three square meals (or more, in most cases,) is what they need to live and be healthy, they get very worried and easily controlled when that schedule has any threat to it. You need 6-11 servings of grains a day in order to live!?!?!?! Tell that to a diabetic...

Anyway, I can see getting by on very little for a long time, but ketosis will eventually set in, and your body will eat your muscles... I'm assuming this guy isn't the photo in the dictionary next to "robust," and isn't going to be winning any MVP awards, but I believe its possible to go without for long periods of time, years even. Most people without conditioning can get by without food for 3 weeks, as long as all other conditions are met. I don't see how he can get by without drinking, though. That's kind of a head-scratcher...

I leaning so far over to fraud on this one I'm about to fall over.

Quote:Sanal Edamaruku on Prahlad Jani

17 May 2010

Indian holy man Prahlad Jani claims that he did not eat food or drink water since around World War II. Indian Defence Research & Development Organisation took this claim serious. What is the truth behind this holy man? Sanal Edamaruku explains.

* Not releasing CCTV footage (they're working on it -- yes still)
* Not allowing independent observers and critics including his biggest sceptic which he publicly stated would be allowed to monitor the trial
* 2003 footage of bathing in previous test provides a loophole to suck back several mouthfuls of water
* Doctors may have slipped him some food on camera while footage was obscured (curious hugging and movements)
* He lost some weight
* Rumours he was taken totally out of camera range for MRI and X-Ray tests on multiple occasions
* Prahlad Jani is not a plant
There are no others, there is only us.

I went 8 days on half a glass of water and I had no hunger and no thirst. I know how to do it and why it works. You have to study the right texts if you want to know the secret. Read "Taoist Yoga: Alchemy and Immortality" translated by Charles Luk.

It's easy to be a critic. The person I took classes from went many weeks without food, without water, and without sleep. Chunyi Lin is his name and the Mayo Clinic just proved this his "external qi" is effective against chronic pain otherwise untreatable.

A randomized, controlled, peer-review study by one of the top hospitals in the world -- PROVED that external qi healing is real and works.

The same principle of qi also enables a person to go without food and water. It's called "converting jing to chi" in the Taoist terms. It's also called "bigu" as the "energy feasting" -- this was also proven in a Western peer-reviewed journal as well.

You can easily look up this information online if you WANT to actually learn about it.

If you want to ignore the evidence and be a critic -- be my guest.
