Research Reveals Plants Can Think, Choose & Remember

Modern science is only beginning to catch up to the wisdom of the ancients: plants possess sentience and a rudimentary form of intelligence.



Plants are far more intelligent and capable than we given them credit. In fact, provocative research from 2010 published in Plant Signaling & Behavior proposes that since they cannot escape environmental stresses in the manner of animals, they have developed a "sophisticated, highly responsive and dynamic physiology," which includes information processes such as "biological quantum computing" and "cellular light memory" which could be described as forms of plant intelligence. Titled, " Secret life of plants: from memory to intelligence ," the study highlights one particular "super power" of plants indicative of their success as intelligent beings:
There are living trees that germinated long before Jesus Christ was born. What sort of life wisdom evolved in plants to make it possible to survive and propagate for so long a time in the same place they germinated?"
___________________________


To the contrary, if we open ourselves to the possibility that we are all participants in an interconnected web of life, as many indigenous peoples believed and actually experienced things to be, destroying the natural world simply to serve the essentially suicidal infinite economic growth model will be identified for the insanity that it is. If we recognize, as biologist James Lovelock proposed, the Earth as a whole should be looked upon more like a self-regulating organisms (Gaia hypothesis), or as mycologist Paul Stamet envisions, that there is a fungi-based internet within the ground connecting all living things on the planet in an information-sharing network , we will be less likely to both perceive and to treat the natural world as "other" to be dominated.
Recognizing that plants, for instance, have consciousness, or that their simple presence in our environment has healing effects , reintroduces an element of wonder and mystery back into the experience of the natural world. A perfect example of this can be found in the singing plants of the sacred forest of Damanhur. Damanhurian researchers in the mid-70's reported using custom equipment to capture electromagnetic changes on the surface of leaves and roots and transforming them into audible signals. The researchers also observed that the plants learned to control their electrical responses, indicating they had some rudimentary awareness of the music they were creating. To learn more, watch the video documentary on GreenMedTV , or visit the Damanhur project website , celebrating its 40th anniversary this year.

They are like you. They don't think, they react.

You have a lot to learn about the membrane.

If you cut down a tree, does the one next to it feel empathy?

I for one am appalled at the hugely unethical and savage manner in which fruits and vegetables get slaughtered by the vegans out there.

Have they no heart?

No but it senses the turpenes of another tree in distress.

Interesting tidbit, when a giraffe eats from one acacia tree the surrounding trees will crank up the tannins making their leaves too bitter for the giraffe.

All membrane reactions. No sentient thought or emotion involved.

The secret life of plants is what...50 years old?

I hope these repetitious clowns didn't remember all this on grant money.

Cell Signaling
In order to respond to changes in their immediate environment, cells must be able to receive and process signals that originate outside their borders. Individual cells often receive many signals simultaneously, and they then integrate the information they receive into a unified action plan. But cells aren't just targets. They also send out messages to other cells both near and far.

Haven't done any scientific experiment, but we got pretty good observational evidence they can post on CanCon too.

They may not feel empathy, DS but I did watch a doc awhile ago that showed the roots of trees reacting when their neighbors were mowed down. The roots actually drew back.......it was creepy cool.

There,s some think in every react however.

Of course plants can,t hope to differentiate on a par with you.

For instance you wouldn,t lay on the lawn watching the trimming without some clue abourt the future of your uppermost expressions, would you?

How,s the planting goiing, you lazy backstard, shouldn,t you be looking at baby porridge by now.

It required research to determine plants can think. If you don,t think you can,t be here. Many of these plants have been thinking millions of years before we ever did, or they wouldn,t be here.

How could I survive without a heart to pump blood through my veins?

Yep, they got all the questions but somehow never seem to offer any answers.

They never mentioned the world, just the planet.
