dc.description.abstract N=1=NPK=KIMCHI=N is a mobile, expandable living unit which consists of a urinal, urine processing system, hydroponic napa cabbage garden, seedling growing area, customized bed, and kitchen table. I tested my urine, modified my diet to produce a urine ideal for growing napa cabbage, grew napa cabbage hydroponically with the optimized urine, made kimchi from the napa cabbage, and fed the kimchi to the public from the living unit. In this paper I elaborate on the intimate affiliation between the "narcissistic self' and the planet proposed by N=1=NPK=KIMCHI=N. I synthesize concepts of the self-body, narcissism, death, and ecology to arrive at a methodology for the long-term preservation of the self and planet. en_US
