40 years of faulty wiring

Cult Phenomenon Series 1 The Breatharians and Diet Coke (again)

CULT MEMBER

  1. an outcast and loner (loser in life)
  2. weak or no family ties (daddy had boundary issues)
  3. transient person (homeless)
  4. desire for power
  5. Internet followers find easy, virtual access

 

 

CULT LEADER

  1. desire to exert power and control (bully)
  2. narcissistic/sociopathic
  3. validated by the admiration and dependency of others (Blanche DuBois comes to mind)
  4. mentally ill or have a  personality disorder (who would have guessed)
  5. unrealistic life plan – no job, frequently states “the Lord will provide” (unmotivated)
  6. secretly afraid of being “found out”
  7. goal is the total enslavement of victims  Read Profile of Cult Leaders

The Breatharians are a group of utterly delusional people who believe they do not need food or drink to survive.   They are a cult but not one that is grouped together into one creepy, old church or in a corner of northern Guyana. They have shares in Dentyne gum…just kidding. Watch Mr Breatharian. Some of their beliefs include:

  1. Eating has little to do with hunger or nourishment .
  2. Many people are drawn to food that causes physical suffering thus mirroring emotional suffering.
  3. Bodies don’t have to age and there doesnt have to be a time-limit on a person’s life. So all those midwestern Americans are right about Elvis.
  4. People only need the sustenance that comes from light nourishment. So turn on the lights and suck in those calories.

JASMUHEEN

The “goddess” of the Breatharians is an aging, grey-haired woman named Jasmuheen (Ellen Greve), one of the biggest con women the world has ever known.  One of her claims is that in relation to aging she has “discovered an ability that lets me “psychicly see” things on cellular, chemical, and vibrational levels.” Another claim is” I crave for some specific food item perhaps once every two weeks, and will eat the specific amount that I need, or half a mouthful if it is liquid.”And my personal favourite, “I can go for months without having anything other than a cup of tea.”Watch universal laws with jasmuheen

 

She was revealed as a fraud on Australian 60 Minutes in a hotel experiment. 60 Minutes holed Jasmuheen up in a comfortable hotel 24/7 without food or water. day 2: symptoms of acute dehydration, stress and high blood pressure. Jasmuheen claimed it was polluted air.  day 3:  she lost over 14 lbs in weight. day 4 the producers stopped the experiment since Jasmuheen was facing kidney failure. Jasmuheen’s teachings led to the deaths of 3 followers. Jasmuheen’s sensitive response was that a victim was “not coming from a place of integrity and did not have the right motivation.”  watch breatharian fail jasmuheen 60 minutes

WILEY BROOKS

Wiley Brooks is founder of the Breatharian Institute of America. In 1983 he was reportedly observed leaving a Santa Cruz 7-Eleven with a slurpee, hot dog and twinkies. He told Colors magazine in 2003 that he periodically breaks his fasting with a cheeseburger and a cola, explaining he’s surrounded by junk culture and junk food, and that consuming them adds balance. He claims polluted people cause him to have difficulty in adjusting fully to the Breatharian diet. Hey, excuse us for farting now and then. He insists that Diet Coke is “liquid light”(He ought to read my blog  . watch breatharianism – Wiley Brooks on the tomorrow show with tom snyder  That said, I’m going to pick up a copy of Jasmuheen’s more ridiculous of her Breatharian books (coin toss), make a bologna sandwich and a slurpee, and settle in for a good read.  watch prezi jasmuheen and the breatharians

  1. “This video does not exist”
    How apropos…. is this planned, or a cosmic convergence?
    Decades ago, Wiley Brooks lived/ aka wandered around my town of Boulder, Colorado. The most incredible aspect to his appearances on shows like That’s Incredible was how gullible everyone was – I mean, it’s not as if he claimed something difficult to research or fact-check! His straight-faced advice to
    “Do the meditation excersize before drinking lots of diet coke in the 20 oz and 1 liter sizes (with caffeine) in the plastic bottles only. Along with a double-quarter-pounder/without cheese meal at McDonald’s only. (as of 8-8-10 all dairy products must be avoided when on this diet) If the double quarter pounder is not available, you can combine two quarter pounders to make a double-quarter pounder if necessary).” is classic.
    The indiscriminantly desperate are perpetually victimized by cons, or delusional prophets, but the criminally negligent pseudo-exploratory shows like “Destination Truth”, “Fact or Fake”, and “Ghost Hunters” create an intentional misdirect, by purporting to use “scientific investigative” tools while produced solely for entertainment.
    First Rule of Bogus TV show: make sure all cameras are on the actors, to catch ‘reaction shots’, rather than toward whatever the hell it is they’re supposed to be reacting TO! “Duh, look, ah’m a shure skeert a that there ghost ya’all JUST MISSED, gosh dernit. We cooda jest made histery!”

    • Thanks for the info about the video. I shall rectify it asap. Fascinating that Brooks lived in your town. I assume you met him and listened to his bull? His information about being a Breatharian is outrageous. Yet supposedly he hasn’t eaten for 20-something years.
