In a way, we do run on photosynthesis, at least in a tertiary way. If there were no plants for livestock to graze on, we couldn't eat the livestock.
Mushrooms grow from wood by-products, which wouldn't work without photosynthesis from trees. Without scavengers nothing could decay. Predators eat
vulnerable prey, leaving more food for healthy prey, which in turn strengthens the overall species. Everything fits in the overall ecosystem.
In my opinion, there is no debate on eating meat or plants. We'll continue eating both. We need to survive, and if I had to stand in the sun for hours
a day, I wouldn't get any work done. I wouldn't be able to afford shelter, etc.
