This is a very interesting read.....Are You Eating In The Matrix? on summertomato.com
The question "do you know the difference between real food and food that was designed to fool you into believing it is real?" had me ticking....
Some excerpts from that post....
We have coexisted with McDonald’s for so long it seem preposterous to speculate it doesn’t meet the definition of food.
But let’s take a closer look:
|1.||Any nourishing substance that is eaten, drunk, or otherwise taken into the body to sustain life, provide energy, promote growth, etc.|
|2.||More or less solid nourishment, as distinguished from liquids.|
|3.||A particular kind of solid nourishment: a breakfast food; dog food.|
|4.||Whatever supplies nourishment to organisms: plant food.|
|5.||Anything serving for consumption or use: food for thought.|
With the exception of the last point, which is clearly philosophical, all these definitions include the word nourishment.
Nourish –verb (used with object)
|1.||To sustain with food or nutriment; supply with what is necessary for life, health, and growth.|
|2.||To cherish, foster, keep alive, etc.: He had long nourished the dream of living abroad.|
|3.||To strengthen, build up, or promote: to nourish discontent among the workers; to nourish the arts in one’s community.|
If it doesn’t provide nourishment, it is not food.
Unplugging from the industrial food Matrix does not need to happen all at once, but you can extract yourself from it eventually. The first step is starting to see it clearly.
Are you eating in the Matrix?
“I’m trying to free your mind, Neo, but I can only show you the door. You’re the one that has to walk through it.”
The philosophy of summertomato.com is very interesting and really relevant for all of us today.
