    I know about “Soylent Green,” but the real reason I will be avoiding Soylent is that it is a highly processed food derivative and my experience with processed food derivatives is that the chemicals used in processing them have adverse allergic effects on me. I can eat corn on the cob and soybeans, but I do not dare to eat corn oil, corn syrup and soybean oil. Yes, I do read labels every time I go grocery shopping and avoid all canned foods.

    Sometimes, you just really need to get out there and kill a plant or an animal for food with your own hands; see its life drain away; realize that nothing lives except that it feeds off the rest of the world.
    It does interfere with the average moral sense of entitlement common in our modern age, though. As a mind-numbed robot from the Boondocks, though, I would just say, “It tastes terrible”.

    Well the UN is pushing for this. They probably will be using people in food soon. You know they have that whole Agenda 21. They want control.

    Can’t have a proper revolution until you have a proper tyranny. And isn’t knowing that all the people you hate are also in prison for life make your own incarceration, though having committed no crime other than to be human, all worthwhile.
    Just got a great idea to sell Audis, using Ricky Gervais as a spokesman.

    And yet should our men of science manage to cheaply reproduce complex items out of basic materials via what we will call a “replicator” (Gene Roddenberry such a visionary LOL) and manage to place “food” on every table would you lobby against it?

    Food replicators played an important role in the story as did the transporters, and artificial gravity field. While the transporters saved money by avoiding expensive and pointless shuttle sets/props/scenes, the artificial gravity and replicators answered stupid questions about food procurement/storage and why they’re not floating around inside the ship.

    Sure, I know those things had to be addressed. But doesn’t thinking out of the box plant the seed?

    Food resources are famous for being a limiting factor in travel. “An army marches on its stomach” is based on that fragile supply chain for consumables, which also includes fuel for machines these days.

    15. Hence a wise general makes a point of foraging on the enemy. One cartload of the enemy’s provisions is equivalent to twenty of one’s own, and likewise a single PICUL of his provender is equivalent to twenty from one’s own store.

    Technology can always be used for good or evil. The good or evil comes from the people who use it.

    All technology is evil unless it is wielded by a righteous and just socialist government. Individuals cannot be trusted to use it for good.

    how cool is that?

    There are major problems with that theory. Present cosmology relies on internal forces, four of them, which pull, and not external forces that push and which are interfered with by spectral energies within the light speed continuum. That design will fail, but will be replaced by something much better, in which breaching the light speed barrier causes the ship to exit spectral space, which is more like subspace in Star Trek.
    It is pretty cool, though.

    Some tribal cultures and Japanese officers were way ahead of the trend when they practiced the consuming of human flesh.
