The Chinese character 吃 is very hieroglyphic!------------

Its left part ‘口’should be a square-shape-like bowl since in ancient China the mouth of the earliest bowl for drinking was square instead of a circle-one!;

The right part is one person‘s mouth with lips plus the passage-route through which the food would go to the stomach! ----------乞 could be an independent character. Could you guess its meaning?------- It looks like Tom opening his mouth with the empty stomach!---------------'beg’!

Another character is 气---------- which middle part is the air in your mouth that is going to or come out of the lung! ------------Yes 气 means ‘gas’!
The most useful knowledge and skill that we are lack of is that of about human!
