I am currently extremely interested in fasting and its possible effects on the human psyche, and I was just wondering, what are some possible effects? I have heard many stories (some first hand) of incredible enlightenment and philosophical vistas opening themselves to those who have fasted for a significant amount of time (3 weeks to 1 month). I am currently debating embarking on a fast, and I want to do it properly (I don't want to die). I am aware I will lose large amounts of weight, but I want to stay as healthy as possible throughout. Any suggestions? All are welcome... Please Register or Log in to view the hidden image!
