"There is only the understanding that needs to be taught to
every child in the world, and that is the knowledge that
every single individual on this planet is already as
powerful as he or she needs to be to create any reality they
desire, without having to hurt anyone or anything. Thatís
how powerful you are. The object of the Game is to wake up
within the dream and, in effect, become a Lucid Dreamer."
These images are from the book 'Hungry Planet: What the World Eats'
by Peter Menzel and Faith D'Aluision. It's an inspired idea, to
better understand the human diet, explore what culturally diverse
families eat for a week. Their portraits feature pictures of
each family with a week's worth of food purchases. We soon learn
that diet is determined by largely uncontrollable forces like
poverty, conflict and globalisation, which can bring change with
startling speed. Thus cultures can move, sometimes in a
single jump, from traditional diets to the vexed plenty of
global-food production. People have more to eat and, too often, eat
more of nutritionally questionable food. And their health suffers.
