Tfa says when administered anesthesia, plants react similarly as humans, but no one could figure out the details of what exactly is going on. Is that any different from our knowlege of how anesthesia works on humans? Last time I checked I thought it was still one of the great mysteries of life.

Plant Rights Activist: plants should have the same rights as humans


Vegans are just as guilty of consuming sentient organisms as carnivores are. Not that they'll take the time to reflect on their kingdomist prejudice, what with all the self-congratulations, proselytizing, and such.

yes, they react to people approaching them for harvest, too.  It's sad.  Everything we do as humans is murder.  Joseph Cambell has a lot of neat things to say on the subject.

I feel like plants are extremely conscious even while "sleeping". There's so much left to learn about ourselves and our connections to the living world around us and the stars in the sky it's very exciting to me to see what the future holds in that regards.
