    Default How does a human eat spiritual food?

    Ulraqua or wateva brought Orihime some food in previous chapter, right? Do you think she could absord the nutrients? Like reaiatsu nutrients? Or does it have calsium? How come the huecoians at hueco mundo never real feel a differential with humans. I mean spirits can touch a spirit. But in the real world, a human cant touch a spirit. So if a human go to the spirit world, be it hueco or soul society, can the spirits touch humans? Eh??? wait. when the hollows go to the human world, every infrastruture gets broken. So I guess a spirit can touch a human and vice versa. Hey, I just answer my own question. Yayyyy . But wait! Can human still digest spirit food? I mean if its just reiatsu, I guess one could argue you would live off that......no wait, i think you would just be without spiritual power then if you just starving from reiastu but if its your tummy thats starving, wont you be dead before long??? i mean you still need your bone marrow to reproduce blood evry four months and every four months, your blood dies and turns into bile. Reiastu dont make bile! This is so confusing.

    Right now she is a spirit

    Remember that as a Rioka (to enter soul society) the matter of their body’s is turned to spirit matter >_> that is why is so troublesome to send normal humans into soul society and out of it, remember she had to wait a period of time in order to leave soul society (that period of time is used to “Fix” the gates)

    And yada yada yada, you know the rest
    DEAD TO THE RETARDS!!!
    DEAD TO THE FANBOYS!!!
    DEAD TO THE WERESHEEP!!!

    You know what's equally confusing?

    Ask yourself: do you think anyone here can understand your statement?

    (from wikitionary) differential
    1.of, or relating to a difference
    2.dependent on, or making a difference; distinctive
    3.having differences in speed or direction of motion
    4.(mathematics) of, or relating to differentiation, or the differential calculus

    Your "differential" has to be 1 or 2. Even so, I still can't figure out the meaning of your question. Can't be bothered to. Typical of me.

    Eh is correct. After extensively scratching my head, I suppose I can answer this: humans can touch spirits in the physical world. Otherwise, how did Ichigo manage to kick Rukia back there in the first season? Maybe it's due to his high inner reiatsu that managed to make him do that. There's also the fact that Yami gave Orihime one HELLUVA slap in the first arrancar encounter. Like what Chaoswind up there said, flesh is converted to spirit matter when a human moves to a spiritual realm. So yes, the spiritual denizens can pretty much physically poke/kick/slap the visiting human. (2 arrancar girls vs Inoue)

    I don't see how smashing lifeless, soulless buildings, electrical cables and roads allows a hollow/shinigami to touch humans.

    So you're saying that the bone marrow just lies there useless for four months while you lose blood to cuts, scrapes and infection, making you become anemic or even running the risk of dying due to lack of blood. The life span of one blood cell is, yes, roughly four months, and it does turn into bile. However, you make it sound as if it all your blood dies at once every four months. And no, I don't think the bone marrow is capable of making several litres of blood to replace all that at once in the span of a few hours. Word your sentences more carefully next time.

    Conclusion to your title question: Since they're in spirit matter in the spiritual world, the spiritual food nourishes them as normally as normal, physical food would. The digesting/absorbed spiritual matter should convert to appropriate food and nutrients when the human makes a shift back to the physical plane (I didn't see anyone complain of hunger or collapsing when they returned back home in the end of arc 2). If this question doesn't get resolved, it'll probably get debated into the hypocrisy society factors.
