Taste is Everything

Confucius once scribbled

I saw some piglets suckling their dead mother. After a short while they shuddered and went away. They had sensed that she could no longer see them and that she wasn’t like them any more. What they loved in their mother wasn’t her body, but whatever it was that made her body live.

Now read it out loud, in the voice of Loyd Grossman, whilst watching this youtube clip:

All we have left is a shell.
