Confucius said "Gentlemen should stay away from kitchen", because meat and blood muddle the mind. But he also said "Whoever brings ham, I have never refuse to enlighten." Clearly he liked meat, but he did not want to look at them.
Some of us might share this sentiment.
What is it about food that make us cringe? We intimately ingest them; why are we unable to look at them? Are we so disconnected from our roots as cavemen? Is our diet so processed, that we have grown unfamiliar with what we eat? If we can not look at our food up close, is it hypocrisy? These are the question I wish to reflect on these images.
