Why so super-strict? No roots or honey, no stalks or sprouts? No mushrooms? “All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy.”
The Divinity Diet represents what a consciously multidimensional human (CMH) would eat—not “anything you can get nutrition from.”
Humans are already multidimensional, which is why we have dreams and imagination. Being a CMH means you can see yourself in all other entities; not just animals but plants, too.
An unconsciously multidimensional person can theorize putting themselves in another’s shoes, but a CMH can’t help but feel, sense, and clearly know they are the other entity, so they naturally treat others “how they would want to be treated,” because they know they literally are that other.
The no-foods mentioned either kill or handicap other plants and animals. Honey is storage food for bees (especially their babies), roots are often the core of the plant, and stalk breakage can easily create disease. Some animals pay attention to how they feed off plants, and do exactly what’s recommended in the Divinity Diet, and me observing this first hand allowed me to add that extra dimension to this diet. Some animals will find a plant and carefully eat only the leaves, leaving the meristems intact, so they don’t kill the plant and it can grow more leaves.
This happened to me with some mint I was growing. I woke up and found it eaten off, but still there. Every leaf was intricately gnawed off, and it made perfect sense. (I can’t seem to find a photo of this phenomenon online, and if I knew what I know now I would have photographed it.) At first, I was mad and disappointed that something I wanted and watched grow was gone, as if a project I worked on was stolen, but I later realized it was a gift of learning how animals and plants can fruitfully coexist.
