The intelligence in life has manifested the sun, lightning, thunder, rains, winds and fire. Ancient human beings regarded the sun, lightning, thunder, rains, winds and fire as divine power. They bowed down to them with reverence.
Ancient human beings also considered food to be divine. Since ancient times the intelligence in life evolved religions and human beings of every religion revere food on the table before eating it.
In every religion to this day, at least one of the four elements - air, water, fire/light and earth or all of them - are used to pay reverence to the almighty energy or God. Human beings also bow down to the power, energy or God at every moment when there is fear.
The intelligence in life has manifested every type of food as proteins, fats and carbohydrates from earth as a process of evolution. The evolutionary process of food has neither a beginning nor an end.
The intelligence in life as knowledge informs that energy is neither created nor destroyed. Science as knowledge further informs that energy transforms from one form to another.
The significance of this scientific fact implies that food that grows in earth is a transformation of energy in earth. The intelligence in life as science further informs that every atom of earth is energy.
The growth of food from earth implies that every atom of earth transforms as proteins, carbohydrates and fats. This implies that every type of food is a transformation of another type of food.
This is evident because glucose, which is a carbohydrate, transforms as proteins and fats to build the body. Proteins and fats in turn transform as carbohydrate in the body in the process of producing energy.
The significance of science is that food that is revered by all religions is a manifestation of energy or God. This implies that both science and religion indicate that food is energy or God. When this understanding happens to man or woman, he or she will be grateful for the food he or she eats every day.

Human beings, of whatever age, respect energy and they recognize energy when it expresses itself. The expression “he/she hit the ground running” is derived from the birth of a quadruped that drops from its mother’s womb and, without sparing a moment, sets off in its life-time chase. So it is with the quadruped’s human counterpart – but at a less striking pace. The deep understanding gifted in this article reveals energy or God as the impartial and perfectly balanced centrepiece of existence that has been, is now and always will be.

German Translator’s Note:
Food is energy, this is the bottomline of the article “Intelligence 13“ by Dr. Shankar. Humans need energy to move in daily life, is the knowledge of mankind. The wise make, however, clear that man too is energy and there is no dividing point in energy as food as well as man. And most importantly it is revealed that energy in life is God. So man is not eating energy to move, but is in itself, moving energy or God.
