Doesn't this look delicious? Actually it tastes a lot better than it looks. This is Polynutriment,
the food of the future. (Because large mega-farms become extinct
by 2040, and industrial farming of animals yielding edible meat has
been banned due to the massive polluting effects of fecal waste, "real" or "fresh" food is
beyond the reach of all but the very well-to-do.)
Despite its unappealing appearance and texture, it can simulate:
Just imagine having ice cream at every meal! Parents, freed from worrying about whether
Everyone's palate will be accommodated and their plates will surely be clean — while incredibly getting proper Polynutriment-provided nutrition tailored to unique genetic requirements, regardless of an oftentimes perceived disregard for healthy eating. Science finally gained an intrinsic knowledge of what is required by the human body for optimum health, beyond what was attained through empirical studies. By deciphering all of the human biological chemical processes it became possible to tailor a single product to fuel them.
Polynutriment is amazingly easy to manufacture, inexpensive and non-perishable — making
Remarkably, Polynutriment is widely accepted with open mouths. Unexpected too — because teeth become vestigial with a Polynutriment diet — many fanatical early adopters of Phrenicea show off their lofty status (colloquially referred to as "vestige prestige") by extracting, stringing and displaying their teeth upon their necks!
Edentulous — and proud of it!
