What does ingestion mean to us?
This book combines a soy bean, the photographic image of it's mother plant, an anatomical illustration of a human head, and a quotation from Alice's Adventure in Wonderland. In the quotation, the caterpillar questions Alice, "Who are you?" But due to her identity crisis, she could not answer. If you ingest the bean from this book, your cells will be replaced - your identity can be swayed easily.
