First check out SeeNew at;
Actually, it's a long and varied discussion on who (or what) is actually running things in our world - but this is a good place to start.
I don't get to drop by as much as I'd like because the spot is like school.
(No fluff here - well maybe from BigDon sometimes.)
But don't feel as though you cannot comment or ask questions - these guys (and ladies) are more likely to share knowledge than condemn you (or me) for a lack thereof.
But SeeNew asked if Corn was acting in a defensive mode in order to cull the North American herd.
A sweet white powdery substance (that may be addictive) that is consumed by most people in most of their food products acting in a way as to protect itself from man?
For a long time, man and corn got along.
There was a balance.
Man cultivated corn -
and in return, corn nourished man.
But man got greedy.
Man needed more.
So a "smart" man added fertilizer to the soil. (A short term gain but a long term loss that could only be "fixed" by adding more fertilizer.)
A "smart" man genetically altered the structure of corn to produce bigger (but less nutritious) kernels.
Corn Starch got mad.
Corn Starch became so addictive that foods that contained none were seasoned and prepped with the substance.
Man became obese.
Man became sick.
But "smart" men thought that they needed the stuff.
In the end, many of these "smart" men will die.
With this culling of the "smarter" but weaker members of society - the relationship between Corn and Man will again be sustainable.
With the reduced need (coinciding with the reduced number of people), corn will go through atavism and again become a natural food.
There will be little or no need for petroleum based fertilizers.
There will be no need for genetic modification.
The war between Man and his food will be over.
Sounds ridiculous, huh?
I forget which wave law states that;
Waves that exist at high frequencies travel over short distances,
but waves that exist at low frequencies travel over long distances.
This would seem to be a general law of nature.
Strong acts cannot be sustained over long periods of time,
but more subtle (or weak) actions can last over long periods of time and become more widespread.
Maybe our food is killing us by it's own agency.
