Looking at electrical activity in plants it is clear that they react to things going on around them. How aware are they? Do they experience pain? Perhaps new techniques in science will reveal more?
We are very anthropomorphic and judge any and everything by its similarity to us.
Plants are very different to us.
Because of the way they feed they do not require specialised organs. They do not need to move.
But plant cells are extremely complex – much more complex than any animal cells. They are much more evolved.
Our brain, which is the seat of our consciousness, works on ionic balances creating changes in cell polarisation.
All plant cells utilise the same system.
Is it possible that the whole of a plant operates like our brains?
Do plants think?
If so this has great implications for vegetarians and salad eaters.
To be eaten alive cannot be pleasant.
