JordanTheCynic here again with another question relating to my Eosi Humans.

Most of my questions are NSFW by the way so just a fair warning.

I made a post in the past which discussed how Eosi human females automatically start producing breast milk 24/7 at around 16 years of age and stop doing so when they hit 45, they can start producing breast milk earlier if they get pregnant at an earlier age. Overall, this results in the average Eosi human female producing 321,278 gallons worth of breast milk in a lifetime.

Many users pointed out the obvious issue that the Eosi Humans would need to indulge in an impossibly constant liquid intake to achieve such a high output of breast milk.

I think I might have come up with a possible solution to this issue but I don't know if it's scientifically accurate.

The current concept is to turn Eosi humans into walking ''moisture farms''. This means that their bodies automatically and constantly absorb moisture around them and recycle said moisture into the basic ingredients needed to produce either breast milk or semen ( based on the gender ) which their bodies produce in both high and constant amounts. Regularly ingested liquids are used to maintain basic organ functions in the body.

I don't think this would force Eosi humans to live in moist environments as they should be able to comfortably live with or without them but their bodies will undergo this natural moisture farming process whenever there is moisture in the air.

Could this concept work as a possible solution to the high outputs of breastmilk and semen?

If this is impossible, please forgive me. I am not good at biology.

    $\begingroup$ Breast milk is also hugely expensive to make. Think of it as producing literal food with your body, because that's what it is to babies. Even if a moisture-farm-human could get enough fluids, they would also need to constantly eat to get enough nutrients in order to make the milk worthwhile - unless their babies are equipped to chug a lot. $\endgroup$ – Zxyrra Mar 1 at 23:32

    $\begingroup$ Wouldn't it be lot simpler if they just drank lots of milk? You can give them a social custom of drinking milk from each other. Hard to see what else they'd need all that milk. Or otherwise give them a diet largely composed of liquids with lots of energy and protein? $\endgroup$ – Ville Niemi Mar 2 at 2:24

    $\begingroup$ Why is this getting VTCs for being "opinion-based"? The OP has provided a clear outline of an objectively flawed scenario that can therefore be objectively critiqued. Is this question discomforting? Yes. Is it opinion-based? Not particularly. $\endgroup$ – Zxyrra Mar 2 at 2:39

    $\begingroup$ @JordanTheCynic I would argue that at least half of questions asked on this site are fundamentally flawed. People ask questions to learn - it's ok to lack knowledge because the point of asking is to get it. $\endgroup$ – Zxyrra Mar 2 at 5:01

    $\begingroup$ @Justin Thyme the Second: Doing some simple math has these Eosi humans producing a bit over 11,000 gallons of milk per year. Per Google, the average dairy cow produces about 2500 gallons per year, and weighs 10-15 times as much as a typical healthy female human. So you're looking at a milk production rate roughly 40-60 times that of dairy cows, which have been selectively bred for high production over centuries, if not millenia. $\endgroup$ – jamesqf Mar 2 at 6:26

That's un-possible.

The latent heat of vaporization for water is a whooping 2,260kJ/kg - this is the amount of energy one Eosi human will need to extract from water vapors to liquefy it. Given that the average human energy intake per day is 8700 kilojoules and the efficiency of the biological processes-against-entropy is low, probably your "human-as-a-moisture-farm" will spend all its energy condensing about 0.3-0.5 kg of water per day and do nothing else, so you can forget that milk.

    $\begingroup$ In that case, should I just ignore the science and go pure fantasy? $\endgroup$ – JordanTheCynic Mar 1 at 23:25

    $\begingroup$ @justinthyme Because they are dessicated before you put them there. Try to get the water they absorbed out from them (to use for other purposes) and you'll understand their use-case. $\endgroup$ – Adrian Colomitchi Mar 2 at 1:02
