Well, i do try not to eat the stuff that makes me sick.
I guess i just feel uncomfortable lumping this subject into a broad generality.
It does seem food allergies are increasing and at this point i believe i can attribute that to a number of enviro issues...
Do i believe statistically it is safer to eat foods with a long genetic history...yes.

Statistically, it is safer to stop eating completely. That way, you avoid all possibility of suffering side effects.

Forever.

I found an organic coffee that doesn't leave that nasty, coffee after-taste. I still prefer tea but now I have something that I can serve to guests and not have to apologize for. It's called Cafe' Altura and it's so smooth it doesn't need cream and sugar. I think it would make a great item in a gift basket of organic foods.

Perhaps true...i like the effects on this side not knowing about the other. This side seems to have an up side..:-)

I like to buy organic, heirloom seeds every year to keep as many non GMO plants around as possible, especially tomatoes. I've got some that are almost ready for picking now that are so sweet and mellow eaten straight from the vine. They don't have much in common with store tomatoes other than their color.

Is the up side a side if time travels in circles?

For me at this point in time a positive up angle is the up side..

I have tasted and grown some really oddball heirloom tomatoes that have flavors that are out of this world. Black, Yellow, White, Red and every type and flavor in between. I loved 'em and, you're right, they have nothing in common with the supermarket's red, tasteless mushballs.

The problem for me, though, is the allocation of personal time. To pursue the path of non-GMO consumption, individuals need to grow their own because right now 80% of all we consume is already GMO food source and keeps climbing. How much time am I willing to slice off of my daily routine to pursue the purist life?

I could revert back to my primate roots, become a Luddite living in a coconut grove on a remote New Zealand island living off of Sand Radishes and Shave & Shower only on Christmas every other year. But I am not an extremist in that sense. We all make choices.
That's not to say, however, that we can't all rethink our choices, too.

Are you aware of the term "Codec"? COmpression/DECompression software techniques for Multimedia? Compressed files(Zipped)?

Perfect Compression doesn't exist for us humans, of course. If it did, we could compress any digital file to 1 or 0 which would then remove any distinction between files leaving us with nonsense data.

So, theoretically, we can compress maybe down to 99% perhaps(doubtful but, in theory, perhaps). All of this is fine and dandy but the flip-side to Compression is Decompression. There is always a trade-off in our schemes of efficiency. The trade-off with data compression is how much overhead we willing to tolerate with using the necessary software to Decompress files.

Bear with me here. I am leading up to something.

If I am able to Compress a 10 Gigabyte file down to, say, 100 Megabytes, it might be impressive until I find that my Decompression is very slow and tedious using software that is 20 Gigabytes long. Any on-the-fly Compression/Decompression scheme needs to be fast. There are many trade-offs to wallow through with Codecs. Ultimately, optimization is key to any Codec scheme.

Now. Imagine the Big Bang as an almost incomprehensibly highly compressed file of Reality. 13.7 billion years later, the Decompression of that file is still unfolding(being decompressed) into what it must ultimately become: an uncompressed file of an Ultimate Reality.

Up until this moment, the Compressed Reality file has been changing into what it truly must be at this moment unlike any other moment that has preceded or will follow. Each Decompression instant is unique. This approach or concept to the Reality of an expanding universe would make it, strangely enough, a Compressed version of a deterministic cosmos. The Universe is unfolding just as it should at each instant as it emerges from a Compressed state, Compressed both physically and procedurally.

Time, in this concept, is the Decompression software of the Universe(God).

[QUOTE who-"SoE"]Well, it would seem we have the same physical structure...
Mine came about thru 3 yrs of declining health and surgeries.
3 yrs. ago i was out in minus 14/16 deg and with wind.. a chill factor of abt -70...
Even with ultra lite equip. Sleeping bag system (16lb)&tent and all the other gear i would have to make 3-5 trips everytime i moved.
I was preping for 14k then 20....The 60k+ Everest costs make that goal out !
So far my oxy level is 98 to 100% although i would have to be checked for supplemental oxy probably above 12 -14k I'm really to old for all this...
All i know about my neighbor is his wife is/was a big part of his climbing...:-)[/QUOTE]I don't think my body is able to utilize the food like it should.

The good ol days. Don't think I'll ever again go out into the Wind River range like I used to. Very fond memories though. We would hike ten miles over Jack-Ass Pass (really that's what it's called) with monster backpacks to basecamp. I'll never forget the feeling of 3,000 ft of vertical exposure on some of the climbs.

I still have all the drive I ever had but haven't the bodily joints to go with it. Kinda like being all cranked up and nowhere to go.
You should give the above link a watch. Before we run out of time.

Oh man, I leave the room and I forget how to post. I included a quote from bt9 that I was going to respond to in SoE's post. Oh well, bare with me, on the count of three all take your socks off.

[/QUOTE]You were prepping for an Everest climb? And it costs 60 grand? Dang.

Highest I've ever been was like 14,000. I used to get off on rock wall exposure and the most I've gotten was between 3 and 4 thousand as it's hard to find much more than that for much less than 60K :)
