"I watched it and I loved it...This film is an epic exercise in expanding our worldview without losing our discernment . "- FOSTER GAMBLE ("Thrive" )
"A brilliant pioneering study of a fascinating phenomenon."
- PROF. RUPERT SHELDRAKE, Biologist ("Morphic Fields"), University of Cambridge
"A well made and wonderful balanced documentary. I like"
- PROF. AMIT GOSWAMI, Quantum physicist, University of Oregon
""Light" is a pioneering and provocative film on the controversial claims of 'breatharians." Recommended for anyone interested in the far reaches of human potential, this film will inspire some, perplex others, and infuriate the rest — but you will not be bored."
- DEAN RADIN, Chief Scientist, Instiute of Noetic Sciences
Is it possible that human beings can survive without food and fluid over many years and live on light alone? Are we confronted with quackery or with forgotten knowledge?
IN THE BEGINNING THERE WAS LIGHT follows the phenomenon which only a few in our Western world are aware of, as the topic has been either ignored or ridiculed by the media. The picture deals with human beings who allegedly can survive without food and fluid, over weeks, years and even decades.
Most people would spontaneously say that this just cannot be. It's impossible! But based on certified reports of personal experiences, interviews and scientifically documented laboratory experiments, the picture follows the phenomenon of "living on light" aka "breatharianism". As incredible as it may be, there seems to be evidence that there are people living today and some existing thousands of years back too, who do not need food either to live or to sustain their metabolism. They live on "light" alone. Depending on the tradition it may be called PRANA, CHI or ORGON...
As modern people we experience this phenomenon as an incredible attack on our western, scientifically orientated concept of the world.
Hence this picture starts on a fascinating and intriguing journey around the globe and includes not only the latest explanatory models taken from quantum physics but touches on the knowledge from eastern spiritual tradition as well.
It is not the film's intention to advocate that one should stop eating but it does trigger food for thought and it aspires to challenge the prevailing mechanistic-materialistic philosophy dominating our society today, to open up other perspectives and enhance new ways of thinking and living. Or does the saying "what cannot be shall not be" still prevail?
