    Feb 7 2014: of course food as a metaphour of many things has an effect. The THEORY is that originally we were prey and learned to imitate carnivours as a way to leave being eaten behind. Evidence that this in fact is true is seen in childhood nightmares of things hidden under beds and closets..no evidence is found this is experience but DNA memory of past experience..So after a carnivour eats,the herd is no longer nervous as the kill is the end to carnivour hunting for a period. Thusly we eat meat at each occasion and we are calm...as long as there is one dead being...we do not feel nervous as a group. So we combined the act of the carnivore killing with our own omnivore habits and voila..we eat meat(alota0 If one chooses to not register with this ritual of habit and fear the result is a heightened sense of moral responsibility and a deeper sense of horror at ALL VIOLENCE. Aristocrats famous for their hunting habits(shooting endangered species ect) need our collective participation in meat eating to validate a rather narrow view of the food chain that explains why they are in control.
