I have this really weird friend who’s always been practicing some esoteric form of metaphysics. His latest one is the strangest yet. He said he’s been practicing a form of sun gazing where you stand there in a field and stare directly at the sun.
You’re supposed to get a lot of energy from the sun. To me this sounds very dangerous, like you would go blind. But he absolutely swears by this practice.
I sat next to this very strange professor at a wedding a couple of months ago. He was eating a very special kind of food. My friend explained to me that this professor had a few years previous, maybe a decade previous, had started to live the life of an ascetic.
He would only eat raw organic food. He wouldn’t use any technology. He would take showers with cold water. He would only write with a pencil. He would even stop writing with a pen. He was still a professor at this college.
There’s a very interesting religion in ancient India, and still modern India, called Jainism. Jainism, the adherents to Jainism, believe that all lifeforms have an equally valuable life energy force. Most modern religions believe that there’s kind of a hierarchy of lifeforms.
Like humans are the most important and then sentient animals are below that but animals like insects are not really worth the same amount. But according to Jainism, every single life form is worth the exact same amount because it’s all the same life.
According to many ancient scholars, peak humanity happened when the ice age ended but before they invented agriculture. During this time this is when humans had the essentially a Goldilocks set of conditions.
There was very few humans but there was enough naturally stuff growing because the recent Ice Age had just ended. They didn’t need to hunt and kill animals to survive. There was enough wild naturally growing grains that they could go out they could pick wild wheat they could grind it into bread.
They didn’t really need to spend a lot of time. Because this was before any type of writing happened, because this was before any type of technology, these ancient humans had amazing powers. They had powers of telepathy. They had powers of astral projection. They had powers of remote viewing.
Too Many People
What happened was they started to become too many in number. Too populated. They were forced to invent agriculture. What this did was this forced them to have to work for a living.
If you look at the story of the garden of Eden from the Bible, this is kind of what it sounds like. Once upon a time, humans lived in this fantastic environment when they didn’t have to work. They had all the superpowers but then they made a mistake and because of their mistake they were punished.
The women were punished by having to suffer the pain of childbirth. The men were punished by having to work for a living rather than just kind of lazing around and getting food when they needed it. One way to explain the actual act that caused these things to happen from a purely biological historical standpoint was they became overpopulated.
Sex Makes People
Population, of course, comes from having too much sex. So you could say that ancient humans had superpowers but they ruined it by having too much sex and because they had too much sex they made too many people and because they made too many people we lost all of our superpowers.
If you are adherent to Jainism you have to wear a special mask that has small enough pores that will filter out all of the small lifeforms that are floating around in the air. Even if you accidentally kill a microscopic life form, to them it’s just as bad as if a normal person would accidentally run over another human.
After this guy had spent a couple of years living the way, he did without using any modern technology, he would keep writing ideas in his journals. The people that he taught realized that he was starting to become too intelligent.
Revert To Ancient Powers
Many people believe that because he had reverted back to the very ancient way of living that he started to develop the superpowers of thinking and even the people that he worked with, even the other professors that he worked with, started to realize that his brain was becoming far too superior to anybody else’s.
My friend told me that he had to practice sun gazing. The first step was to stand barefoot on a field and look towards the horizon where the sun would rise. You have to watch the sunrise until it’s about a quarter of the way above the horizon. You only do that much, and the next day and the next day the next you do that for one week.
Then you watch the sunrise until it’s halfway above the horizon. You do that for a week and then you watch the sunrise until suck a full disk above the horizon and you slowly build up your tolerance.
Two Years of Sun Gazing
According to him he’s been doing this for two years. According to him every day he stares at the sun for two hours. According to him he gets all the energy he needs directly from the sun.
This gives them the ability to not have to eat. He doesn’t have to work for a living. He doesn’t even have to drink water.
I don’t know if he’s telling the truth or not but I definitely wouldn’t recommend doing this. According to him once he built up enough sun gazing power he gets all the energy he needs from the sun.
