9781608821013You are an eating pyramid: billions of cellular, bacterial, parasitic micromouths with your macromouth on top. Your eating—within the confines of your body— is communal.

With this in mind, ask yourself who eats. Asking yourself, “Who is eating?” is really just a way of asking, “Who am I?”

Indeed, who are you, Composite Creature? Are you one?  Or are you many? Or is this plurality that you are just a form of universal oneness?

Chew on this mystery of eating as “you” eat. Transcend your narrow stereotypes of yourself.
