this is a pretty funny doc on Indian gurus, shows how gullible even high IQ people can be when they're desperate.

RE: RIP Li Ching-Yuen 1677-1933
We never know. There is no evidence against it, and all evidence existing are quite flawless. I will share a few with you.

New York Times once in 1930 posted about how the Qing government congratulated the man’s 150th birthday in 1827, and the Qing celebrated his 200th birthday in 1877. True documentations exist.
All lof the senior locals that lived next to Li Ching-Yuen have mentioned that many of their ancestors have seen Li.
There have been unproven legends that he has married 23 times, and had over 200 children (Another version says he had 24 wives, and 180 children).
A real, existing warlord during the nationalist party rule by the name of Wu Peifu, claimed to have seen Li, and said he gave him advice for a healthy life, along the following lines: “心静如水,坐如乌龟,走如野鸽,睡如家犬。” This translates to “Make your heart calm like water, sit like a turtle, walk like a wild pigeon, sleep like a dog.”(The translation really ruins the beauty of the original phrase; the lines were very beautiful).
On his family documentations (族谱), which are usually very reliable, the man was born in 1677, during Emperor Kangxi’s reign. Till his death in 1933, he had lived for 256 years.
He was said to have picked and sold Chinese medicine for a living, and travelled across the country, and has been to other countries, including Cambodia, present day Myanmar, and Thailand. His long living legacy was usually explained to himself as keeping a healthy diet, and use of Chinese medicine.
Legend says there was a very old man(the tale reported was last century)that claimed his uncle used to be one of Li’s medicine picker (Chinese:药童) when Li was in his hundreds, and he can prove that Li actually was a indeed 256 years old.
Many western scholars have been to Li’s college lectures during the late 1800s and early 1900s, and many westerners have admitted Li’s legacy.
Again, we may never know. His lifestyle was so unbelievably different than our lifestyle in the modern era, we simply cannot use what we think as our “limit of humans” to measure what people have accomplished that do not live in a lifestyle similar to ours. It's like a human and a cheetah racing in a 100M race. If Usain Bolt gets beaten by the cheetah, we can't say that's it's unreal, or that the cheetah took drugs or anything. They're different. Also, it's also nice to believe in miracles. Li was a miracle if mankind.
