Life

It has been a very windy day today and the streets were covered with seed pods. I picked up one of the pods and opened it. I was amazed about the tiny embryo I found. It is strange how similar all beings seem at their beginning. It felt breathtakingly odd, like a surgical operation and made me appreciate how deeply all life on our planet is connected. How life is truly one large organism.

Looking for eggs

To get certain foods we manipulate the sex life and the motherly love of animals and plants. We are inseminating cows and taking away materialised motherly love: milk. We are steeling unfertilised potential children from birds. We are lying to rice and pretending the rainy season is starting by flooding its environment , so it puts all the energy it has in its potential children,its seeds, so they can survive the next season and a possibility to get fertilised . I voice these observations not necessarily as a moralistic plea for veganism, but more as an observation of how our foods are connected to sexuality and love. A lot of our foods are interrupted plant or animal sex or the harvesting of motherly love. It is violent and very manipulative and expands over most foods and builds the fundament for the extraordinary expansion of our species. We have created a lot of narratives to be able to cope and execute this behaviour, as we are also socially highly empathetic and have the tendency to anthropomorphisise almost everything..
