Ah. But the things after the edit were in a general sense, not specifically for you. The ones before the edit, were.
In any case.. The reason why I gave that argument regarding fruits is, that I see that we are a part of nature, and fruits generally suit us very
well. It seems as if the world has been designed in a way, that plants can provide food for other beings (including us), while at the same time the
plant themselves can remain unharmed by consuming these fruits, and these beings that consume the fruit are actually helping the plants and their
reproduction out, by spreading seeds around.
Also, I apologize, but I do not get what you mean in general. You're talking about control. Is this related to only eating meat, or eating anything?
You say there's a conspiracy. Are you talking about keeping our energy levels down so our consciousness does not grow, so that we remain trapped in
this physical reality, and that our negativity can be used as a source for other beings? Or are you talking about something else?
I took time and reread what you wrote--before the edit.
and how right you are. I concur, about the freedom of not eating, but for more reasons than to be free from the worry, and that brings us to your
question of me, about the supposed,(what I asserted), conspiracy of what we eat and how it is used against us.
The greatest control over any living population, or population of living, is putting us in an environement where in order to have the energy to
continue on we must steal the energy of another living thing--ergo, eating....
If we were made to do without this-- in any number of ways, say as, epiphytes, like ferns that draw their sustenance from the very air around
them--but later controlled and then seduced by the pleasure of the taste
and the very necessity of it added to our culture, i.e., breaking bread, sharing meals as a family as a way of connected emotionally, etc.--think you
get my point here---then it becomes downright healthy to do the unhealthiest of things, by another vaunted hypocrisy in our culture, to murder another
life and consume it for our very survival....
Get where I am going here? Some believe plants have consciousness; many believe animals do....
There is no greater unification of a populous as to introduce to them a taboo, and them unite them in going against it to engender their
After you have them in that cabal, you can require they do almost anything as a group, to perpetuate, name what is healthy, etc.... The advertising
that would accompany, which most of us agree our other forms of entertainment are generally used for this advertising to be available and take affect
upon us as a group and individuals through our exposure to it, by way of being entertained, or even being "connected" in such a way as to earn a
living, and further survive...., that advertising would reinforce with its obvious inculcation that we have both broken the taboo, we needed to do
so to survive and have pleasure, and that this is, in fact, a healthy endeavor. Once we are at that tipping point, we have to go along with anything
thereafter, as well as the consumption of our lives, opportunities and eventually, ourselves, because after all, we were down with it at some point
when it was someone else we were talking about.
