Over the course of the next 12 days I’ll be posting 12 future thinking concepts and applying the same methods I’ve been practicing with the various Ted Talks. Why? Cause it’s freakin fun and pointless, that’s why!
Day Six – Eat Like a Pack of Wild Animals
Every once in a while, you get days where you’re driving to the airport, grabbing a quick meal with a friend and only have an hour before you’re off to go see the Hobbit.
(It’s one of those days, so a very brief entry on these 12 days.)
There are plenty of signs out there that will mark the importance of coming together to eat as a family. It is a bonding moment, a shared moment and something that the family all can do.
And it makes sense, ALL humans, no matter where they come from all need to do the same things. They are sleeping, pooping and eating/drinking machines.
I think I covered some of this in a prior post, but that’s just how important it is. At the end of the day, it doesn’t matter what you do as a living or what kind of responsibilities you may carry, we all need to do the above in order to survive and continue doing what you enjoy doing. (I hope you’re enjoying what you are doing)
(Also wrote on this topic for Gottacon about the importance that those who game together should feast together)
There is something tribal when it comes to eating together. We all react the same way to food (unless you’re particular), and seeing that expression on other faces only reminds us of our own.
If there ever was a ‘holiday event’ that is missing, it would be some kind of televised meal designated for everyone on the planet to spend 15 minutes to eat together. Maybe that we can remember that we’re living creatures at the end of the day.
Now a video of a skunks, cats and raccoons eating together.
