BREATHARIAN

Noun. Late 20th century.
[from BREATH + -ARIAN after vegetarian, fruitarian, etc.]

A person who believes that it is possible, through meditation, to reach a level of consciousness
where one requires no nutrients but those absorbed from the air or sunlight.

This is nuts. And dangerous. But mostly just nuts.

What say you?

  1. I suppose they'd last a bit longer than someone who adheres to the exact opposite belief.

    1. So ... like ... hang on ... which opposite belief? I think I adhere to the exact opposite belief, in that I *do* require extra nutrients other than those gained by air and sunlight. Am I in danger?? Maybe there's more to this than I originally thought ...

      *takes a deep breath*

  2. I was referring to a person who believes that it is possible, through meditation, to reach a level of consciousness
    where one requires only the nutrients NOT absorbed from the air or sunlight, including vitamin D and, crucially, oxygen.

    Now please start breathing again because I don't want to have to start saving for an OED.

      Phew. I was getting a bit squiffy. I'm back to being a good old fashioned foodarian.

  3. This is completely crazy.
    I wonder how many people have died from starvation?

  4. If only this were true! I wouldn't have to deal with the look of disappointment in my husbands eyes on a typical day when he finds out I made pasta for dinner yet again!

    I want to be a breatharian. Next time someone asks if I'm vegetarian when I look at their raw burger in disgust, I'll say I'm a wannabe breatharian. :) Gracias, Ed!

  5. The more weird things I hear about our world, the more I question our future.

    1. This is indeed weird. I mean - even if it were true, why would anyone not want to eat food? It's just so damn delicious!
