Why am I on a RexRed thread. I should have known better.
The subject of this thread is just a thought Ros. The delicate relationship between plant and animal is of interest to me.
I am sure many scientists were ridiculed for believing in microbes before they were actually observed/discovered.
Considering many plants have thousands of bacteria species living upon them just as humans do so the symbiotic relationship between bacteria, mold, fungus, spores and plant intelligence is still being understood by science. Can a bacteria hear? If it could not “communicate” with other bacteria and such it would die.
To rule out plant intelligence i.e. five senses, is possibly narrow sighted.
How does the plant "see" and respond to sunlight, with eyes? No, but they have a similar chemical mechanism that allows them to "see" and “feel” sunlight.
Why can't similar chemical process also be employed for the plant to hear? Considering that millions of terabytes of data can be stored upon a single atom and that the human mind is a carbon based computer, nature has many secrets that science still has not unraveled yet.
We look at canines and realize their sense of smell is a thousand times more keen/acute than our own why couldn't a plants ability to "hear" and store data be even greater than that of the human mind? We just don’t know yet. Plants and biology are so vital to human life that survival of human life is dependant upon survival of biology also. Plant life is vital to the survival of nearly all other life forms on earth.
When so much is unknown, why diminish the possibilities out of some stoic traditional goldfish pond view of life and its purpose? I know just because I can twist scientific words in wishful sophistry does not make my conclusions correct.
It is wild to imagine plant intelligence and that they pass on knowledge of ages past in their cellular structure and they not only hear the world but they have left a record of their existence within. We can look within and read the story that plants tell us as if they were in the same room conversing with us.
Many doctors can read a patient without speaking with them I wonder how plants "read" the human race? What do these living plants, that we share this tiny globe called earth with, think of us?
