What Are Double Dishes or Meals?

Word-processed Knowledge or Food-distributed Product

I grew up with local food and school books, mostly.  Food fed my hungry stomach and my physical vehicle, while words fed my hungry soul and ascension vehicle.

Growing up in semi-naked hometown, food for me was rare and precious, simple with only touch of salt flour or a bite of spicy pepper to fire up sweat glands on my face and skin. Words on the other hand are for educated people, learned scholars, elite few who run the nation; such a chairman his committees or a president and his cabinets.

We know that everyone eats daily and speaks vocally, but few can make meal to feed more mouths, and very few in the entire cultural history have created words,  flushed out ideas, invented concepts, and fashioned educational materials and believing systems.

This is why for me, feeding soul was more important than feeding stomach, and making senses of words are more meaningful than utilizing digestible nutrients. This is why I grew up valuing the sacred books more than agricultural produce and its associated grocery products, to the point I named myself a bookworm, a pig worm.

Is a book a produce, a product?

Yes, a book comes out of a printing factory, and I have self-published a few. But, a book cannot feed physical part of a stomach. It feeds either the thirsty-eyed mind or the soul-desperate stomach. A sacred book contains light particles or love lotion while a food produce contains heat or nutrients.

Something has changed from that shining start producing beaming lights, to targeted ends as head and solar wave. A star waves, a planet caves, and a moon saves; equally, a mind-spirit waves, a physical body caves, and neutral space in between saves.

Somehow, in the collective growth, when something that is good enough to be deserved as goods or excellent to get a sell, this product, whether it is a word or produce, will be used again and again, circulated again and again, to be sold and bought again and again,  till this very item or product becomes a precious goods or word-belief.  This product, slowly and for sure,  becomes a collective item, a cultural icon, a national brand, a global product, an universal tool.

So, I grew up with a passion and its devotion to knowledge, which is nowadays called computer information or digital data. To know something is different from obtaining a knowledge and pricing it; and there is a big difference between to know something directly or willingly verses to be forcefully informed or wittily programmed. To know is a verb, such as keep your kiss on for now; but to add a ledge upon what you want to know aside from your kiss,  value begins, and its price enters tag.

Now, you have to pledge on knowledge as if a sledge, so you can fledge. From this point on, the difference sets in. Before there is a knowing, you are in a lower, disadvantage but equal and even position; after you obtained a knowledge, you have the advantage towards a ledge, to apply as a pledge, a sledge or fledge.

Before the computer was invented, the difference between knowledge and information is small, slight; as they exist in their exchanges between letters and numbers, formula and rules, systems and laws. But now, there is no such thing as sacred knowledge, only trade-able, marketable and useful information to obtain and practice. The information age kicks out what is and has been treated as sacred knowledge. Further, knowledge is personal, while information is collective. To be informed, someone needs to perform in front of you, to sell that very piece of information to you, and to brainwash you.

Form doesn’t need to be known, or obtained; because for every form, it is formless inside. Oppositely to know is to kick, kiss or kill now; to be empowered. To know something is very personal but to obtain information is universal. You either have a personal appointment to a private office or go to an information desk to ask for help publicly.

Anyhow, I was a school-product, a knowledge distributor, from being a teacher at public school, to an ordained or initiated student from a specific Taoist lineage. Since knowledge can only be digested, processed and distributed from heart and soul, and personally, your digestibility is the real factory and your application knows the practice of that knowledge in life.

Oppositely, everyone needs a grocery produce, a household product. A processed dish is a product, so does a tool, a lamp, a bed, an airplane.

Further, the best and worst part of life is that we treat each other as fortune-driving numbers and ideal-fashioned products.  We consume each other, trade one another, utilize one from the other.

What to bite and digest words and/or dishes? What to sell and distribute knowledge and/or product? A duct in product is totally different from a ledge attached to a knowledge. A duct is a form, while a ledge is an edge. To know the form, to have the ability to inform, or the power to perform, what is a form from what is meaningless or formless? Only a duct can tell, only now can bell.
