      Hello there,

      I read his article very briskly, without stopping for deep reflection.
      He castigates the change from hunting-gathering to farming. Has he
      not thought himself to be a child of this change, making it possible
      for him to stand today and speak or write?
      Anyway I got bored with the nutrition part. Not that I don't care
      about nutrition. I do, and as a child was taught the food groups and
      all, and that's what I transmitted to my offspring. Until I read Mr.
      Fukuoka. He said people get lost calculating the right food and the
      right amount to keep healthy. He said all their calculations are fine
      but they don't prove much, since they isolate a part of a whole.
      Naure does not do that.
      From his example he lived to a ripe old age eating what was available
      and that's it, without splitting hairs. I'll stick to that.

      best

        *"Aboriginal Religions in Australia*

        About the book:
        "Over the last 25 years there has been an explosion of interest in the
        Aboriginal religions of Australia and this anthology provides a variety of
        recent writings, by a wide range of scholars. Australian Aboriginal Religions
        are probably the oldest extant religious systems. Over some 50,000 years they
        have coped with change and re-invented themselves in an astonishingly creative
        way. The Dreaming, the mythical time when the Ancestor Spirits shaped the
        territories of the Aborigines and laid down a moral and ritual law for their
        occupants, is the fundamental religious reality. It is the basis of the
        Aborigines's view of their land or country, kinship relationships, ritual and
        art. However, the Dreaming is not a static principle since it is interpreted in
        different ways, as in the extraordinary movement in contemporary indigenous
        painting, and in attempts at an accommodation with Christianity.The
        contributions of anthropologists, cultural historians, philosophers of religion
        and others are included in this anthology which not only guides readers through
        the literature but also ensures this still largely inaccessible material is
        available to a wider range of readers and non-specialist students and
        academics."
