Inculcated Quotes (1 quote)
I grew up in Japan and Hong Kong and then came to the States. Japan was a huge influence on me because, as a child, I would hear the oxcarts come and collect our sewage at night out of our house from the latrine and then take it off to the farms as fertilizer. And then the food would come back in oxcarts during the day. I always had this sort of our poop became food mental model. The idea of waste equals food was pretty inculcated, that everything was precious and the systems were coherent and cyclical.
