Earth people are just here, that’s all. They’re just concerned with eatin’ and sleepin’ and sex and dope and politics and religion and philosophy and they’re not concerned with anything else because they don’t see why it’s necessary. Whereas celestial beings see they can’t be chained to so-called depravity. Angels like their minds and spirits to take wings. They’re always movin’ forward. They’re artistically inclined. They find food in lookin’ at a picture or they find food in hearin’ a beautiful song or a beautiful poem or lookin’ at a beautiful dance or just seein’ a person smile. They find food in that. But Earth people, they just find food in food. —

BUT SUN RA, I LIKE FOOD IN MY FOOD.
