A therapy-grade hot sauce could be made by "re-distilling"
spicy food (passing it several times through the alimentary
canal). The body would absorb more and more of whatever
absorbable in the food leaving only the boarder-line,
unabsorbable, spicy, "aquired" tastes. The excrement might
be "cleaned" before reingestion if it is possible to clean
without removing the desired distillates, but hardcore
therapy enthusiasts would probably reintroduce matter
without processing for a "purer" final product. The final
product of repeat distillings of a carefully prepared meal
would be a proof-is-in-the-pudding sort of way of turning up
the contrast and brightness on an individual's taste over a
certain period of time. Artists would evolve around this
practice. -- Have you tried the Joe Blough, "Summer
Vacation 2005?" Also, this would be a way for healers to be
extremely precise about what they recommend as a
theraputic concoction. The resulting "sauce" would be a
distillation of all the boarderline aquired tastes they chose
to eat at the first sitting.
||But how do you separate the undigested bland fiber from undigested spice. And is the undigestable spice really "better"?
||hmm... maybe separating liquid from solid? Maybe what
floats from what doesn't?
||The undigestable spice would be "spicier" if not better.
||I prefer unadulterated crap; the purist in me screams, "Know! Know for sure!".
||One wonders how JHC knows that the shat-out spices are 'spicyer' [sic] than the ones that went in.
