Is it possible to stare directly into the sun and not eat food? Provided is a documentary that focuses on a young man's journey into the little known world of sun gazing, an ancient practice of looking directly into the sun for long periods of time. With the help of the Internet, this practice is gathering global momentum.

Since I've been keeping track, I've seen some 1200+ films, of which 75% were above average. 'Eat the Sun' ranks as one of the most fascinating and intriguing. You need to view this film to believe it, and I'm grateful that this has been documented by Peter Sorcher and Mason Dwinell. I have to use glasses to read anything these days, so an activity such as sungazing, with its potential hazards, doesn't necessarily appeal to me. But I'm intrigued by the lower doses used by Julia S. of Hollywood Hills, CA, which, as declared by the converted, is an activity that can, to a surprising degree, substantively replace the need to be sustained by the consumption of food. And admittedly, I love survival shows, so this technique could just be a life-saving option if I ever found myself in survival mode. The scripture finding from D&C 88:67 by Jason, as a motivation for sungazing, kind of blew me away: 'And if your eye be single to my glory, your whole bodies shall be filled with light, and there shall be no darkness in you; and that body which is filled with light comprehendeth all things.' I'm not a scripture person by any stretch of the imagination nor am I necessarily interested in comprehending all things, but my non-literal interpretation of this passage says that you can gain a kind of clarity through stillness and breath. The fact that this element was integrated into the film demonstrates how thorough the research for this film is, especially given how obscure this subject is. And I think it is a relevant element to include, as I can understand its spiritual component and appeal.

If you stare into the sun for 44 minutes a day, will you no longer need to eat? And a more compelling question: What will the world's foremost "sungazing" guru, who claims to subsist on beverages alone, order at MacDonald's when secretly followed there by filmmakers--a cup of coffee or an Egg McMuffin? Put on some shades (or not) and check out this documentary to find out.

i really found that the main character was looking for answers to questions he didn't know. just because you believe in something does not make it true....*cough* religion *cough* shows the gullibility of people who are in a fragile state.

Really interesting. The film remains on neutral ground regarding the subject matter...neither endorsing it nor dismissing it. If you like "edge of science" stuff, you will like this.

This has to be a joke. Staring into the sun does not lead to better eyesight, it leads to blindness.
