Our common sense tells us there is a direct correlation between food, as the matter-input for feeding body organisms, and life – understood here as the consequence of an impermanent set of vital movements. Still, the general asseveration that “food is necessary for life,” in whichever political position it actualizes, must be critically observed, for such concepts will vary depending on an actor’s position in a world “affected by contemporary science and biotechnologies affecting the very fiber and structures of the living, and altering dramatically our understanding of what counts as the basic frame of reference for the human today” (Braidotti, 2013: 40).
