Is it possible to live a healthy life without solid or liquid food? Am Anfang war das Licht shines a light on a grey zone between esoterism and science: the phenomena of ”breatharianism.“ P. A. Straubinger gathers the opinions of renowned biophysicists, Qigong masters, and (selfproclaimed) (Alpine) Yogis and confronts scientific studies with personal experiences. “It’s not about not eating and drinking, but rather thinking differently …” (Michael Werner, who has been living on light only since 2001)
