    You really had alot of life-changing stuff today Dallas and Ryan!

    Thanks for introducing me to the “Concept of MEAT” —-> this lead me to “the absent referent.”

    “Behind every meal of meat is an absence: the death of the animal whose place the meat takes. The “absent referent” is that which separates the meat eater from the animal and the animal from the end product. The function of the absent referent is to keep our “meat” separated from any idea that she or he was once an animal, to keep the “moo” or “cluck” or “baa” away from the meat, to keep something from being seen as having been someone.”

    I’m on a PLANT BASED “NON MEAT QUEST” but I romanticize and have a deep respect for Aboriginal people; I don’t think this is in conflict because they had a deep respect for nature unlike Western Society and didn’t separate the meat eater from the animal.
