Navenna Shine of Seattle is planning to livestream her own death.
Well, technically she's planning to livestream an experiment in which she attempts to survive for up to six months on nothing but the natural light of the sun, but it's essentially the same thing.
Why does Shine believe her "experiment" will end differently? Because she really believes.
The only problem with this is that we do not believe it. We hear about it but, how can we possibly believe somebody who says that they don’t eat? Even family and friends don’t believe them sometimes. The solution is very simple. We have to put it to the test. This is what I intend to do through “Living On Light”. Put it to the test.
And so, for the next four to six months, Shine plans to live in a "controlled environment," with eight cameras pointed at her at all times to ensure that she isn't cheating.
She hopes to be able to livestream the footage, but claims that technical difficulties are currently preventing that from happening.
"In the meantime," she says, "each moment is being recorded and the files are being archived for future verification."
According to Shine's YouTube page, she is already over 30 days into the experiment, and has lost more than 20 pounds since starting. She is still drinking water and occasionally some tea, but says this is just to "flush out the toxins of a lifetime."
"I have the feeling that my body has reached a point where it has used up all its stored fats and is now looking around for what next to consume," she writes on Facebook. "I suspect this might be the point where it decides either to find and hook into the source where it is able to live on Light, or consume the body for sustenance. I am doing all I can thorough consciousness to open up the space for ‘Living on Light.’ We shall see."
No mention of how she plans to obtain sufficient light to live on in the notoriously gloomy Pacific Northwest.
RIP Navenna Shine.
