This question hit my mind today because I keep questioning food and our need to eat and eliminate. I find it a bother and humans get all emotionally addicted to food. That’s not helping. What about oxygenarians? They live on air.
We’re always told we have to kill plants (picking them) and animals to get our nutrients but where do plants get their nutrients? Soil. What is the source of the amino acids in the soil? Air and water.
Then why can’t we absorb all the amino acids we need directly from the air and water as plants do? Our roots are our feet and our lungs breathe like a tree. Our skin absorbs everything around us through our pores.
Trees absorb carbon dioxide and exhale oxygen which is why we can breathe. We rely on the trees for that process. Humans do the opposite. We inhale oxygen and exhale carbon dioxide so it’s a symbiotic process.
Recent discoveries include compounds called nucleobases and sugars that are key components of DNA and RNA. The amino acid glycine even has been spotted in outer space in the atmosphere of comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko. Such findings bolster the idea that life could exist elsewhere in the universe.Dec 4, 2020
That’s pretty interesting. What else is flying around out there bioavailable?
I think we make food too big of an issue. The water and air we take in should take precedence. Next time your stomach says “I’m hungry”, drink a 20 oz glass of cold water and do a deep breathing meditation first and see how full you feel.
