Life Without Food: A Post Mortem

Life Without Food: A Post Mortem
Since coming off a 20-day, water-only fast on Easter Eve, where my body weight plummeted to 160 lbs, my energy, strength, and outlook continues to grow brighter. However, eating once again was not to be rushed into. The bathroom scale indicated 160 lbs only a few days ago (Sunday). My first “food” intake after almost three-weeks was cold-pressed apple juice. I also... Read More

Life Without Food: When the Body Says ‘No Mas’

Life Without Food: When the Body Says ‘No Mas’
Today, on Easter Sunday, would have represented day 21 of a 40-day fast, but yesterday, the half-way point, at 160 lbs, my body said “no mas.” I have yet to “eat” anything solid. A glass of cold-pressed apple juice, followed up by a fresh blend of unpasteurized orange and pineapple juices, and several cups of vegetable-broth miso soup, was a marvelous feast for... Read More

Allowing My Body to Heal (Not “Cure”) Itself

Allowing My Body to Heal (Not “Cure”) Itself
I am on day 4 of a 40-day water fast, and all is well. My days are as long and active as ever. The main difference is that there’s no “dinner time” for me. I am doing this as part of a larger shift to allow my body to cleanse, repair, and regenerate parts that have been under great stress... Read More

Rebooting Myself: The Ultimate Journey

Rebooting Myself: The Ultimate Journey
I didn’t watch President Trump’s speech yesterday, so I don’t know what he said, and have no opinion about it, other than we got what we were willing to bet on, and that he remains the lesser of the “two evils” that Americans were given the illusion of choosing. Mr. Trump is not our problem, nor our solution. Irrespective of who caused, or is still causing... Read More

‘Dividable’ Americans, Not Trump, Are America’s Greater Weakness

‘Dividable’ Americans, Not Trump, Are America’s Greater Weakness
It has been quite the new beginning for 2017. Now let us get accustomed to what seemed like the most unlikely of outcomes; i.e., the election of Donald J. Trump as president of United States of America Corporation, who managed to make it through the inauguration. Perhaps it was never in doubt, but it sure seemed that way. I am... Read More

A Voice and Power From Within: ‘Dear Diary’

A Voice and Power From Within: ‘Dear Diary’
By whatever name or tradition you prefer, I send joyful and sincere Holiday greetings to everyone. As this new solar (and soular) cycle ascends, may our appreciation, awareness, trust for, and use of the Great Power within us, also grow. Did that sound a bit “woo woo”? If so, so be it. It has become evident to me that the netherworld of what mainstream opinion shapers... Read More

Vortex Generators for Sustainable Agriculture Webinar

Vortex Generators for Sustainable Agriculture Webinar
I’ve been quiet lately, but busy. Reading more than writing, shooting video, and getting some of the bugs out of this site, which sometimes ran VERY SLOW. More functions, plugins, and large images files (I should know better) may have had something to do with it. I also realized that my original WordPress site would likely still be there, although perhaps in... Read More

Saying Good-bye, and Hello

Saying Good-bye, and Hello
NOTE: This article is a duplicate of the last post from my WordPress site. This is a one-time event.  Earlier this month I received a quiet announcement that Thought For Food had been on WordPress for 10 years. Working with, and guided by an India-based website developer/designer/SEO analyst Radhey Sharma, the new Thought For Food (www.phaelosopher.com), will be an amalgamation and synthesis Read More

Election Season: Time to Start Speaking Up

Election Season: Time to Start Speaking Up
The Clinton Trump Show is set to come to a head soon and, it will be what it will be. For all the concerns that you hear from politicians during an campaign race about “jobs,” it is rarely considered that, for the most part, those “jobs” will be of little interest to most employees. "Jobs" is the word that politicians... Read More

Novel Idea: How about Postponing the Election?

Novel Idea: How about Postponing the Election?
If democracy is to work, the responsible thing to do is to acknowledge when it is not working as intended, so that appropriate changes can be made, not by the politicians, but by The People. It begins with changes in thinking, from which new choices and behavior will follow. Read More

Principle-based Elections: A Makable Change

Principle-based Elections: A Makable Change
After watching the third presidential debate and the “roast” fundraiser the following night in New York where Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton were featured speakers, it first occurred to me that the best action the American People can take at this time is refuse to vote for either Democrat or Republican candidate.

The Debate and Election Debacle of 2016 Continues

The Debate and Election Debacle of 2016 Continues
The Debate and Election Debacle of 2016 Continues Speculations and debates about who “won” the vice presidential standoff between Senator Tim Kaine and Gov.Mike Pence last week overlooks the largest “loser” in the equation: namely, the People of both the United States, and the world. After watching the vice presidential “debate” on October 4, the salient question might be, which of these men would you... Read More

Let’s do a ‘Mulligan’ on the Primaries

Let’s do a ‘Mulligan’ on the Primaries
I’m no fan of the “lesser of two evils” school of political choicemaking. What you get, in the end, is evil, not so much in the candidates personally (although there could be some question about Mrs. Clinton), but in the perpetuation of policies and practices that are already exploiting the mass of humanity (not just Americans), for the profit and continued...

Time to Say “Good-bye” to Germ Theory

Time to Say “Good-bye” to Germ Theory
I received a call the other day from a man, we’ll call him Jacob, whose organization sells our vortex generators for water enrichment (under its own name) to farms on the East Coast. He sold a unit to an organic dairy farmer, who we’ll call Paul. After a number of months, Jacob wasn’t getting any love, referrals, or new business, from Paul. Instead, Paul... Read More

U.S. Politics: It’s a Sham Shame

U.S. Politics: It’s a Sham Shame
It is a pleasure to be at a “normal” keyboard again. For any who have wondered, after being unable to raise sufficient funds to climb out of arrears in the place where I resided for 11 years, I accepted and cooperated with my landlord to vacate the premises via an eviction process. Of our belongings that weren’t given away or... Read More
