A young man takes a deep breath, then he swallows air to fill his lungs. Meditation and therapy, exercises for breath through breath control, artificial lungs and the voluntary transition boundary to the edge of unconsciousness. From the first to the last breath, from the martial artist to the boys’ choir: as simple and self-evident breathing seems at first glance, so complex and effective it is when we look closer.
