- graphite. Coal and graphite: they're both carbon. Your whole body is
- made of carbon (as well as other substances). Carbon is formed in the
- thing in the world? a diamond and that's made of carbon; it just
- could say you're made of glittering diamonds. The black carbon, that
- oxygen combines with carbon in the blood, you have carbon dioxide. And
- you know carbon dioxide quite well: you only have to think of Seltzer
- water with the bubbles in it: they are the carbon dioxide. It is a
- carbon, and he exhales carbon dioxide. You breathe oxygen in, you
- breathe carbon dioxide out.
- poisoned by the carbon dioxide coming from the human beings and
- they take in the carbon dioxide that human beings and animals exhale.
- Plants are just as greedy for the carbon dioxide as human beings are
- blossoms: the plant absorbs carbon dioxide in every part of it. And
- now the carbon in the carbon dioxide is deposited in the plant, and
- it back again. Man gives carbon dioxide out and kills everything; the
- plant keeps back the carbon, releases the oxygen and brings everything
- to life again. And the plant could do nothing with the carbon dioxide
- the plant, gentlemen, is a magician. It holds the carbon back inside

- protein he has eaten into its separate parts and puts the carbon from
- oxygen from the air and that this oxygen combines with the carbon we
- have in us from proteins and other food elements. And we exhale carbon
- in carbon dioxide, keeping a part of it back. So now we have that
- carbon and oxygen together in our body. We do not retain and use the
- combine with the carbon. Thus we do not make our own protein as the
- From the protein we eat, we keep and use only the carbon. The other
- only the carbon from the external protein. And we also make our own
