Flora from the Gut

A co-worker friend and I were conversing about the spectrum of lactose intolerance and the long long time of gradual adjusting of habits to improve digestive health. We came up with this renku sequence:

eat your beans make raspberries do family* surprise health checks

*family in the all my relations sense (remembering the sci-fi of Octavia Butler in the Xenogenesis series and the Oankaliwho)

Food Rule #33

Eat some foods that have been predigested by bacteria or fungi.

I wonder how this translates into the management of information flows. Sending and receiving predigested bits. In a game of chew and tell/show.

And so for day 2754
