the theory of fruit.
instigated by the reading of the small yellow bordered magazine of goodness. and its articles of leopard seals and frogs and evolution. (national geographic!)

From the plant, for the plant. Fruit is for the nutritioning of seeds and the attracting of the beings to eat the seeds such that the seeds can travel. Because of this the producer of the fruit has better offspring.
From the uncivilized person the difference is that of view. this wonderful packet of nutrients and useful material can be easily located in large quantities and is generally not poisonous. thus the harvesting of such is an efficient use of resources, again leading to a better outlook in procreated life.
When the need for the nutrients becomes unimportant, fruit is… useless. tasty.

at what point is fruit not food, such that enjoyment of it is the only reason to consume? the enjoyment (attachment to sugar and so on) is only stemming from the fact that it is so nutritious. which stems from the adaptation to liking it, because of its availability as a good source of sugars in a small bundle. which stems from its creation as an accessory for reproduction. Therefor fruits are genitalia? By action yes, definition, probably not.
repeat the line:
When the need for the "nutrients" becomes unimportant, "fruit" is… useless. tasty.

As a concentration of energy fruit also brings many theo-psyco-logical questions to thought. Something that is more useful than the rest of the being, or more useful to certain other beings anyway. Why? Certainly why not, but that is an easy answer. As organisms, we all concentrate energy so as to use it later. (Is this because it is a good plan? Or because that is how we evolved?) we have to take bundles of energy in in an efficient as possible manner so as to be better off than the competition. Such is life. From enjoyment to survival. Because of the existence of such packets (quanta!) we consume them.

Entropy is the assumption that everything breaks down from high (concentrated) energy to low. Because we exist in such a way as to make use of such things as fruit (and in saying we I mean all organisms, and some (perhaps all) not so organic isms) (and by fruit I mean all such high energy things, like muscles or stars or communities or edible tubers) and to covert the work of something else into something more useful to ourselves. Could this be different? Alternate realities and all that crap? Somewhere where we give energy to personally gain? Somehow where we spontaneously gain energy and have to give it away to survive?

From that: A world where giving is necessary for survival, receiving is seen as selfless. Everything extrudes energy and needs to stop picking up energy (or something similar) for survival. in such a world you would have to reverse such things as the big bang (imagine a world on top of a thick layer where to be noticeable you have to create less. but you have to give the something you dug up to somewhere/thing else. here the big bang is the very first (expanding) dent in the surface.

Similarities to fruit in this theory. All other concentrations of food for us consuming organisms such as edible roots, nuts, other organisms, the specific components of said organisms. The sources of high energy that is leeched from by these none consumers (plants consuming from high energy sun, for example). The importance of centers of energy (populace, community, society) in international conflicts, such that they are seen as priorities. Batteries.

Libraries, and other such places of thought (universities) and information act opposite to fruit. For when individuals go to such places, thoughts and ideas as energy are not taken or degraded but built upon? Certainly there is some breakdown, but perhaps an example of an opposite force to entropy. If Libraries were fruit and knowledge was energy, instead of eating the fruit, we would take a copy of it, use said copy to power ourselves, and perhaps later we would come back to add to the fruit to make it larger and juicier. perhaps like the previously imagined world. or a 'reason' for the universe.

Fruit are genitalia, we enjoy eating them of course. = predictable
Fruit is an example of entropy. =in more ways than one = ok
International conflicts can be seen by looking in a fruit grove. = zen
Universities are the antithesis of fruit and by extension of entropy = build/burn more universities!
