That isn't what bothers me. What bothers me is whatever it is that distracts me (and a great many others) from ever eating any other way?
Here is a brief list of the noble qualities that the humble vegetable posesses:
- The vegetable knows itself. That apple, that pear? It knows what it is, and it is it, presumably without giving it a second thought, or none at all!
- The vegetable is honest. To the best of it's ability. We intellects may tamper with pesticides and other chemicals, but the vegetable has no interest in tricking you into eating it for its own gain, aside from spreading its own seeds.
- The vegetable knows what to do, and when.
- The vegetable lives so it can give. In doing this, it expresses itself freely and becomes one with everything else.
