Information as Food

I saw this video today, a TED talk, with a gentleman who urges us to consider that our bodies need information just the same as the need food. He urges us to consider that we need to feed information nourish us, and that different people need to prepare the information for consumption in different ways.

Go here to see his speech…

Information is cheap now. The availability of information has now exceeded human capability to use it. The internet is a revolution for mankind in that one of the great limitations for the expression of the mind has been removed. Other limitations such as time, nourishment, willpower, and the economic environment to express the capabilities will always be with us. I believe that we are truly at a dawn where the most able minds now have access to the intellectual food that can make the expression of their mental gifts possible. We have just only started seeing the ramifications of this upon the world.

Unleash yourself. Feed yourself fresh food from your garden and fresh information. Keep you body and mind alive.

    You can buy the sock with or without copmost inside, if you want to do it more inexpensively. If you want to use your own copmost that’s great, you just have to make sure you fill the sock not too tight, not too loose. Potato bags are good too, but the beauty of the socks is that they are made to breathe. That is the point, that the copmost can breathe and stay active so it can release nutrients to the plants. And it doesn’t get root bound like a pot.
