Funny how some bright people can be so balmy, not sure if I am spelling his name correctly but remember David Icky ? and his balmy ideas.

Re: Hey hows it hanging .....

I'd not dismiss any of this myself as there is a strong argument to suggest that all living things have at least some degree of consciousness and that being the case (and only a fool would dismiss such a notion) then it must also follow that In their own way plants can see, hear, smell, feel and it is possible they even have a memory.

Never say never unless you can prove otherwise. Life will always be full of surprises.

@Minivanman

As a fool I dismiss it.

Most living things have a structure that can be clearly identified and in most cases it it clear how it works, nerves, brain, etc even with the smallesr of microbes and viruses we can see how they divide and multiply but in a tree or bush there is a distinct pattern of their life cycle which gardening experts have studied and written about over the centuries but I see little if any serious works that trees or other similar structures can think or communicate, the only exception being in films such as the hobbit, perhaps as the fool I am I also don't believe there are fairies at the bottom of the garden even though thousands do, so is it me that lives in fantasy world or others ?

Well it's the acceptance or not or what is consciousness. Why should we humans as a  living organism have it whilst plants (also a living organism) do not and if you accept that they do, then all else follows does it not?

If you accept the premise then you must accept the conclusion as long as there is no disconnection.

On Pandora (Avatar) all life both animal and vegetable was shown to communicate and empathise.

It was ultimately the saviour of the planet.

If you follow that theory it's not long before you are saying plants have feelings,and if you go down that road then you should cause no damage to plants and trees.

The science fiction writer Ron Hubbard demonstrated that plants react to damage by using a GVR (galvanic skin response) machine but then realised he was on to a good thing, started scientology and made a fortune .

But sadly there is no scientific paper that provides any reasonable evidence that plants have 'awareness' nothing to show that any plant has changed into some life form.

The clues are in the DNA of plants and certainly do not match those of any living thing.

Perhaps of greater concern is when you hear the trees talking back to you.
