My community spans the globe. A rectangle bit of plastic in my pants’ back pocket serves as my community.
Flats have been ripped open & stretched to match the cyclical cycle of existence in my hamlet of excess, which is 1000 square feet of reinforced urban soil called a flat.
As long as it adds to my excess, such as by growing a product like sugar that no one can do so without, or cotton for a fabric that never goes out of style — a fabric that never goes away.

Compared to the kitchen of a few generations ago, my cooking is smaller and produces less food. My refrigerator, on the other hand, stores enough food to last for weeks, if not months.
The refrigerator may be the devil in all of this, but remember reason we need this in the first place.. Our meal times were plagued by food spoilage, and my mother was desperate to avoid it by purchasing a refrigerator. We have the means to acquire, store, and consume all of it.
Compared to the rest of the house, my kitchenette is smaller
Refrigerant businesses nowadays are enticing us with images of monochromatic houses, ‘fresh’ food and ‘intelligent sensor-equipped’ refrigerators, all of which we see in advertisements for their products.

The village market is now known as a supermarket, and it’s much like any other market except it wears a cape instead of a hat. As a result, I enjoy a large-than-normal lifestyle at a low cost.

In the winter, we ate carrots, and in the summer, we ate melons… It used to be that food was only available at certain times of the year. Winter in one region of the world is followed by summer or spring in another, and there is a year-round market for food. It’s a matter of supply and demand; the more you desire, the more there is to satisfy it.

I was watching a cuisine documentary on a road trip made by a chef who had a really fresh, wide-eyed appearance and cooked in a fast yet eclectic manner. He comes across’soul food’ in the Us deep south. Americans on estates throughout the era of the slave trade had to make do with leftovers. Instead of throwing out perfectly good meat, they found new ways to prepare it by adding greens, veggies, and herbs to the mix.
Having just finished viewing this video, I believe we can take some inspiration from it and make our consumption into something special.
The five fundamental needs are concisely described in my daughter’s first-grade science textbook.
Furthermore, I believe we are capable of doing so.
