Go into your refer and grab a carrot. Cut the top half inch off and plant it. It will form a plant but it is a second year carrot so the fruit will be the seeds it creates. Take the seeds and plant them the next spring any you will have carrots. Always leave a few carrots to create new seeds the next year.
Take the celery off your stalk and plant the middle little celerys. They will grow tall and big but they do not have much flavor, the outermost celery stalks have the most chemicals to deter pests so they have more good taste to most of us.
I can go on and on. When something can be eaten by bacteria, it has little energy. It is their job to clean up death. A cow hangs for weeks and does not rot, the chemicals in the beef keep bacteria at bay. Life is about proper chemistry creating energy. When the energy is gone, than that life is gone, the microbes will move in.
I see your point, however, I am only talking about food for consumption. Humans don't eat "live cow" that only happens in nature where animals eat other animals after catching them. Humans kill our food and cook it. Ezcept for fruit and vegetables. When something is planted it's not being eaten, just being re-grown. We can keep this debate going however, we may be on to something.
