Energy at different levels.

Imagine if you did not have to eat, imagine you could just grow your own food just by walking around in the sun. Imagine if we could take some plant matter and graph it onto ourselves. If we take a look at a cross section of a leaf. In the chloroplast's photosynthesis takes place. In order for photosynthesis to take place the chloroplast's needs Carbon Dioxide, Water and Sunlight. Once the Carbon Dioxide and Water have been processed it creates the by product of glucose(Sugar) and Oxygen. As we all know we need Oxygen to live and glucose(Sugar) for energy. Imagine if we could take out a section of a leaf and graph it onto a piece of skin. You would connect the artery and vein onto the Xylem and phloem portion of the leaf. This will enable a steady supply of carbon dioxide and water to the "Green skin" which will convert it via photosynthesis in oxygen and glucose. Note: This is a rough idea. There is alot of science that needs to be researched.

Hey my love! I think not having to eat would be useful, but half the fun in life would be gone! And green isn't really my colour. Maybe we could use Rhodophyll instead, It's the red version of chlorophyll. I love your creative mind, and I think it leaves some people a bit speechless sometimes.

HI there, sweety.
Thank you for telling me that you can get red chlorophyll. Just imagine people going crazy over "Extreme designer skin"?
My creativity even scares me.

Wow, after having white, black and yellow people, here come the green people! I think this idea would have done well with the hippies!

Anyway, you have quite a creative imagination Craig. And you never know, the mobile phone started out as an outrageous idea....

On the other hand, I like my food way too much. So I'll pass on the green skin myself.

Yeah, me too... half the fun in my life happens in the kitchen *ahem*. Also I think just sugar and oxygen would be a rather thin diet for a human being as we all need several different nutrients from the 5 basic food groups every day in order to live a healthy life. Just take a look at vegans: if they dont substitute the lack of meat and animal products with soya equivalents they also suffer from bad health and fatigue.

Its a very creative idea but would need many other elements in order for it to work.

Very cute tho'- green people... Greenpeace would be thrilled!

Er jo..i don't want to know what type of fun happens in the kitchen ulg! anyhoo perhaps the idea would work in places like ethiopia where people don't have the luxury of being able to by all the delicious things we eat. They would at least have energy to do stuff rather than starve. But yes Craig please work on how to get protein too...

Thank you all for your input. All of you have raised interesting questions and or comments.
At this stage if a person where to get the green skin, they would have to suppliment there diet with the other nutrients. Which means that you still could eat the foods you want...(especially you jo)

Wow Craig, you really come up with some original thinking! Wouldn't it be great if, when food is short, we could switch over to this 'green' skin to provide us with the nutrients we need. I think it's a fab idea, specially as I think eating's a waste of time....well, I do like food, but hate cooking, and could give it up quite easily if necessary.

Imagine if you didn't feel like cooking or eating for a day, or were out in the bush where it's difficult to take food, you could use this system to such good effect!

Anyway Craig, I really like the idea, and think it's the way to be thinking these days, like your train, so well done from me!!!

One very small thing tho', and I have to say this as an English teacher...ahem...sorry...but I was a bit confused by your use of an apostrophe to make a plural for chlorowhotsits at the beginning. Just a tip, love, we never use apostrophes for plural forms in English unless it's with abbreviated words, numbers, or words that you are artificially making plural e.g pro's (abbreviated word), the 80's (numbers) and the Why's and wherefore's (not usually pluralised). If it's a normal word, there's no apostrophe for the plural. End of English lesson with apologies for being pompous..hugs and kisses Val xxx
