Response to c-rational (Original post)

7. It was almost 40 years ago,

I was listening to Allan Watts on radio. He was comparing humans to yeast.
If you introduce yeast to a sweet environment like wine or other juice with a little added sugar, the yeast will do 3 things. One eat, two poop and three reproduce. This is all good and fine until the liquid reaches about 7 or 8% alcohol. They take in the sugar and then poop out the alcohol. At that point all of the yeast die.

Kind of like what's going on now.
