Am I a fish or what?

The pdf which is the source of this post is Open Source and has no copyright. If you do not believe me, see page 3 of the document linked.

It comes from here

For me, it explains the points made very well, so whether you agree with the philosophy of breatharianism or not or whether you believe it is possible or not, doesn't matter.
It is the information which matters and you take what you like and leave the rest.
Many saints and holy people have fasted for extended periods of time without a problem, but how ?
Maybe they were moving towards breatharianism ?

=======================
Am I a fish or what?

Once upon a time I had a fish. I decided to experience the life of a fish.
How is it to be a fish? What does the fish do, and why? What does the fish
feel? Can it be a non-eater? What kind of emotions does the fish experience?
I was interested in knowing answers to such questions. So I decided
to explore it. I was curious and I wanted to have fun (to play).
First, for a few months, I daily spent a few hours with the fish. I was
observing it in different situations. I found out a lot of things and I learned
a lot about the fish. I could even write a book and become an authority in
the field of fish life. I had observed everything that was possible to be seen
in the life of the fish. That was my experience that people told me about in
the past. However, only now, when I have seen it by myself, I can say that I
know it.

Jesus came to make fishers of men, men who would cast their nets into the great sea in order to catch an save the many sea creatures making their crossing over the waters.

Fishers of men.

In today’s climate... you can identify as a fish if you want to, and I am sure you’ll find plenty of support for it. Fish lives matter!

Sorry, I did not click on the link.
Seemed the meat of the topic was fasting and breatharians.

How long has anyone fasted here? How was it? Any comments?

I know 2 people with health issues that fasted for 21 days...with amazing results.
21 days with only water is very long. I can not remember if they had hot water that had steeped
some herbs to help their kidneys or liver along in the first week...seems I remember that part.
One cured her ovarian cancer and was at a health 'spa', similar to the Hippocrates Institute...the other,
I prob won't mention...cuz of what came out on day 20, but it was good result.

I don't quite see the point. Is it an analogy of a conversion from one who as a non -believer tried to understand the life of a believer and ended up by becoming one?

Jesus made fishers of men but his motive was to teach men to evangelize men to catch men and women to be saved to Christ so God would have a family of man

Thanks for showing the Christian apologists technique of picking a keyword (Fish) and going off (It appears) as a tangent to do a bit of irrelevaNT preaching.

Ps. I missed the Link, too. well, it is linking to some kind of Advice. I'm not going to comment. Follow the advice or not, there's no reason why it can't be posted here, that i can think of.
