In assesing what we receive from the environement around us, it is important to note that everything we come in contact with can be considered "food". The definition of food is far too limited if we consider only what goes into our mouths. When we expand the definition of food, we see that all types of sensory information have the potential to be either productive or destructive. However, by placing emphasis on the more basic end of the scale, physical nourishment, we are accknowledging that there is a sequence and order in our ability to use that which the environement offers us toward our own evolution and understanding. In a very real sense, we are eating the world. We are absorbing and assimilating ever-broadening spectrums of information. A healthy person will have learned what types of food productively serve their development, and what types produce stagnation and degeneration. They are constantly seeking wider experience by placing themselves in exciting and unique situations, so that they can more effectively and more deeply understand the wonders of life. This process is served best by a high degree of physical vitality and adaptability -- health.
