Consumers' taste, Mr. Souscayrous, will very likely
remain the same, but i see emerging a new awareness relative to
the nutritional aspect of biological foods. A growing number of
old-timers, like myself, are begining questioning the "factual" -
NOT the theoretical - capacity of present day biological produce
to truly nourish the Human Organism.
Though the majority of us still languish in the old
illusion that we can obtain from Nature such superior foods "on
our own terms", a few others have come to realize that we, in fact,
have no alternative other than surrendering our millenary interven-
"Truer" foods imply the presence of an equilibrium
of elements absolutely beyond our ability to comprehend, such is
the complexity of the involved interactions. I consider delusive
- even irrational - the expectation of receiving from Nature such
"unknown" foods, while maintaining the multitude of our intrusive
interferences on Her workings.
Not only - as You have mentioned - our present day
fruits are questionable, but questionable are also our own taste
buds, for, by forcing perversion upon Nature, we have executed
perversion upon ourselves.
Retracing our steps all the way back to day-one of
Civilization, and from there stepping further back into the Garden,
is the great challenge facing Mankind today. It is a long journey,
uncertain for untrodden is the pathway. Indeed!, we need to abandon
ourselves to Nature, we need the counsel and inspiration of Mr.
Masanobu Fukuoka, the great visionary of our times.
From Vancouver, Canada, my best wishes and regards.
