The individual considers a range of human activity and sees connections in a way which allows them to determine a clearly discernible pattern in otherwise random occurrences. This primitive anthropological need to see regularity in otherwise random behaviour allows the individual to make sense of the world around her.

All other foods are ‘kosher’ and therefore fit for consumption.
