On one hand, some folks like to live their lives as members of Raelism, a UFO cult who really believe life on earth was formed in scientific labs by extraterrestrials.

Then, on the other hand, there's the Sect of the Gadget Hackwrench, who believe a Disney cartoon character is a 'divine being'.

Somewhere in between is Ukranian model and a real-life Barbie, Valeria Lukyanova, who starves herself and uses plastic surgery and Photoshop to create her Barbie-like image. Only it might be killing her slowly. The controversial model has stopped consuming water and food and hopes to sustain life "on air and light alone."

There's a website that links a New Age practice known as Breatharianism, where followers neither eat or drink, believing they can exist solely on "cosmic micro-food."

Lukyanova says she's been in contact 'transdimensional beings' but Jezebel.com claims the model is starving herself just to maintain her dollish figure.

What are your thoughts? Is it normal to want to be a living, breathing Barbie?
