“Easy as (Apple) Pie (Recipe)

 by Josh Bertetta


6 oz Butter

1 Tablespoon Salt
A shelving coast
Hydrogen and Oxygen

12 oz All purpose flour
Carbon dioxide

Sugar (2 cups) and Apples (3 lbs)
See All purpose flour above

Directions: Keeping it Simple

Now once you have all your ingredients, you’ll need to have a baking dish, a knife or apple corer, and an oven. Now you’ll need people to have already made your baking dish, your knife or apple corer, and your oven. Of course you may have purchased those made by machines, but at some point people were involved in making those machines. And of course the “ingredients” for those people came from two other people, who in turn were made from the ingredients of two other people, on and on we go.

As stated, those people who have made the tools necessary to make your easy apple pie will have required machinery of some sort. Those machines will have required metals which required various elements, factories, and, most likely, plastics, which require oil and the refineries. In all these instances people are required. In most cases, some sort of education or training will have been required. This, of course, depends on a great many other people too.

You’ll most likely have to go buy your ingredients, which means you’ll need a mode of transportation. For sake of simplicity, let’s say you have a car. See then, above. Still perhaps you walk or take a bike. You’ll need people and their various materials to have made your shoes or bike.

And of course to buy the ingredients you’ll need money, which means you’ll need a job, a bank, an economy, a government to regulate that economy, and a society.

But in order to have any of it, you’ll need fundamental elements, which require billions upon billions of atoms, which, in turn, require countless amounts of sub-atomic particles, all of which need to come together just right in order to produce what you need to make your apple pie.

Not so easy is it?
