Some recordings on the video-sharing platform TikTok contain a Thai woman claiming to be 399 years old. The staggering numbers suggest they were born during the reign of King James I, yet the historical record is severely lacking.
It was reported online that the oldest living woman has reached the astonishing age of 399, which was met with shock and disbelief.
Photos of an extremely elderly-looking person that went viral online have prompted claims that the subject had in fact lived for nearly 400 years.
Social media users were taken aback by the rumors, which claimed that the individual, a Buddhist monk, had been alive since 1623, the same year that Anne Hathaway, Shakespeare’s wife, passed away.
Not long before this, further unfounded rumors had circulated about a male monk who had lived to be 163. Turns out the two people in the videos are the same, and their granddaughter @auyary13 posted them on TikTok.
Will There Ever Be a Woman 399 Years Old?
The pictures are obviously fake. If someone had lived for almost 400 years on Earth, researchers would be eager to learn her secrets, and historians would want to record her thoughts on everything from the French Revolution to the beginning of World War One.
One study found that the greatest possible human lifespan was estimated at 150 years.
Researchers at the Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology concluded that “the method of reducing frailty, therefore reducing the illness load, has just an incremental ability to extend your lifetime,” as Peter Fedichev, the study’s senior author, said to Inverse.
This means that humans have a finite amount of time to live, regardless of how healthy their lifestyle is or how lucky they are.
Comparatively, the likelihood of someone living to be 399 is roughly the same as the specter of Karl Marx knocking on your door to demand that you pay the hike in your energy costs or the resignation of Boris Johnson as Prime Minister.
To Whom Do We Attribute the Name Luang Pho Yai?
In spite of the fact that he is just 109 years old, a Buddhist monk name Luang Pho Yai, who is also known as Luang Ta, is rumored to be either 163 or 399 years old.
