All about fruitarianism with a long-term fruitarian, Lena

Fruit plants never get paid for producing our food, unless we spread their seed in their habitat. Latest edition: Fruit plants never get paid for producing our food – the flesh of the fruits, unless we spread seeds of the fruits we have eaten into their species' habitat.

Welcome, Toni!
I guess, plants do not consciously participate in our economies :) I think we should pay them back for the fruit with care and protection.

Well, Lena, the necessary and sufficient care and protection for the plants, from us – the fruit eaters, is to give the chance for their seeds, which have been taken away within the fruits we eat, to reproduce their respective species, wherever, whenever and however those/they may grow on their own.

Well, that's one way to look at it.
I see plants as individual beens, not like a mechanical element of their species. As with animals, I will treat individuals with respect and try to do my reasonable best to help them flourish. I do not see it as my responsibility or ability, however, to ensure their plentiful procreation. I have an article about it on this site.

I don't feel like having implied a “mechanical element” concept. I guess you mention it to your liking, Lena.

Fruit plants produce our food naturally without our intervention. They don't ask for help. What they do but, without asking us, is putting their seeds in the fruits. This apparently shows what they rely upon for procreation; which is what we naturally can help them with, easily.

I say “give the chance ... to reproduce ... on their own”, not “ensure ... plentiful ...”, once again, Lena.

Guessing the article is “Seeds in Fruitarian Diet?”.

Ethics and Aesthetics

Ethics - moral principles that govern behavior of a person or a group.

Ethics can refer to standards of right and wrong that prescribe what a human ought to do. Ethical standards include standards relating to rights (e.g. right to life, the right to freedom from injury).

Laws, and social norms, or feelings can differ from what is ethical. It is necessary for individuals to frequently examine own standards to ensure that they are reasonable. 

Ethics as moral philosophy involves systematizing, defending, and recommending concepts of right and wrong conduct. Moral philosophy is related to the fields of moral psychology, descriptive ethics, and value theory.

As a branch of philosophy, ethics investigates the questions

  • "What is the best way for people to live?
  • "What actions are right or wrong in particular circumstances?"

Axiology is the philosophical study of value, collective term for ethics and aesthetics - philosophical fields that depend crucially on notions of worth. 

Aesthetics studies the concepts of "beauty" and "harmony." Aesthetics (esthetics) is a branch of philosophy dealing with the nature of art, beauty, and taste, creation and appreciation of beauty. It is more scientifically defined as the study of sensori-emotional values. More broadly, aesthetics is defined as "critical reflection on art, culture and nature."
