A sequence of thoughts:
- one of the main problems with meat-eating is that the thing with the meat gives us its meat unwillingly
- one solution is to grow meat that has no will.
- another is to use meat from our own bodies. this is obviously the most ethical solution.
- but we can’t just use our meat for self-steaks, given that we need our flesh to get things done, like, say, standing up or sitting down
- so we should grow our meat as extraneous organs, like, say, polyps
- except that this would be really calorie-inefficient. it’d probably take more calories to grow the meat than we would gain by eating it, probably even if it were grown partly through photosynthesis.
It says something about something that it wasn’t until item #6 that I realized this was a bad idea.
But it did lead to this fun tweet:
