Response to longetivity - quality rather than quantity
Yes Jackie it is very important to take care of our bodies. I exercise every day for about forty minutes and also walk a couple of miles. Doing nothing will kill you. I was a runner up until 63 and had to give it up due to arthritis in both feet. Didn't do much for a little over a year so my blood pressure was going up, gained weight and became a borderline diabetic. How's that for a learning curve. Not being active in body and mind brings on a host of unpleasant issues. I agree with your concerned over procesed foods. We are fortunate to live in a small community and have lots of organic things available. I feel medications are a substitute for good health prectices. Beside they only treat symptoms and not the cause.
I'm a pretty avid reader and prefer technical and scientific literature over fantasy. I understand the many stories of great floods, but aside from factual events I tend not to lend much credit to such things. Haveing been a student of religion almost my entire life I have become reluctant to see religion as being not much more than unconcious archtypes (Carl Jung). We all have very similar DNA that gives rise to similar physical structure, behavioal norms, social functions so why would humans not have similar thoughts and constructs. And religion for the most part only answers questions and not very well at that.
I do know this however: All things are connected. Your term "source" is probably the only truth regarding our connections and our mother/father earth. While somewhat vague it explains our very being and where we came from. Suits me just fine.
