World Health Organization representatives found in Tibet, an unusual monk who has not been sleeping for decades. Dava It’s no different from the rest of the monastery’s monks – it also eats, walks, prays, with the exception of one peculiarity: he does not sleep already almost 80 years old.
Joan, Nguyen and Dawa are not at all suffering from a lack of sleep, lead an active lifestyle and have already adapted to an unusual regime of the day. Scientists suggest that all three have a rare disease – chronic cholestitis (insomnia). But the presence of this disease explains wakefulness for several days, but not years! how their brain and body function without much needed for man rest is a mystery.

A man who will live forever?

But visited on the other side of being, Jacob came back completely different. Natural his body temperature after “excursion to the other world” is 34 degrees. is he never sleep. However, he does not feel tired, his strength never run dry.
But the most amazing thing is that he does not age. Today he looks everything also at 26. Jacob currently lives in Germany, but German doctors, like Russian specialists, do not explain this phenomenon in condition.
Tsiperovich has an interesting shift in the psyche and attitude – he does not feel the years lived, does not feel the time. Jacob never thinks how many years he lived and how much he had left. His life he perceives as infinite.
Time just stopped for him. Maybe he is immortal?
