Found an interesting article on Plant consciousness. Deep in within us we all know they have consciousness, but people keep running test after test to trying to prove that they don’t. We are so limited in our modern thinking, we assume that plants and the rest of the natural world are stupid machines. Most humans need to believe this false belief these days to keep the grief at bay. How else could we deal with all the beings we destroy and kill off on a daily basis? We are always comparing these other beings to being human, but why does a plant need to drive a car? So if corn doesn’t need a car, then corn would never invent a car no matter how smart corn might be. I wonder if can ever get to the place of understanding plants again as we did in the past?
A debate over plant consciousness is forcing us to confront the limitations of the human mind
