Plants DO have feelings!

https://www.sciencemag.org/news/2018/09 ... aign-21433



Plants may lack brains, but they have a nervous system, of sorts. And now, plant biologists have discovered that when a leaf gets eaten, it warns other leaves by using some of the same signals as animals. The new work is starting to unravel a long-standing mystery about how different parts of a plant communicate with one another.

Animal nerve cells talk to each other with the aid of an amino acid called glutamate, which—after being released by an excited nerve cell—helps set off a wave of calcium ions in adjacent cells. The wave travels down the next nerve cell, which relays a signal to the next one in line, enabling long-distance communication.

I don't get why anyone would ever have seen the world as a binary separation between entities that "have feelings" and those with "no feelings at all". It's all a sliding scale of varying capacity to sense, interpret and express responses to external stimuli.

Of course plants have "feelings", for a certain interpretation of the word. They have a desire to live, grow, thrive, and reproduce. They react to changes in their environment and adapt their behaviour based on coming into harm and sustaining damage. A plant is never going to cry or scream out in pain but as a living organism it is obviously going to be aware that this is happening and on some level would rather it didn't!

I talked about this a little some years ago and was laughed out of the thread. :x

Vindication! :D

Fetch me old brown trousers, bring them to me now, I'll wear them in the rigging as they fire across the bow. Fetch me old brown trousers, I fear we may be hit, for even if they shoot me now, they'll never see me... ;)

Anyone who thinks plants don't have feelings have never been given a venus fly trap.. and killed it.

Cabbage whines could be human cries
Closer comes the screaming knife
This beautiful plant must die
This beautiful plant must die
A death for no reason
And death for no reason is MURDER

And the onion you so fancifully fry
Is not succulent, tasty or kind
It's death for no reason
And death for no reason is MURDER

And the carrot that you carve with a smile
Is MURDER
And the nutroast you festively slice
Is MURDER
Do you know how plants die ?

Kitchen aromas aren't very homely
It's not "comforting", cheery or kind
It's sizzling foliage and the unholy stench
Of MURDER

It's not "natural", "normal" or kind
The onion you so fancifully fry
The peas in your mouth
As you savour the flavour
Of MURDER

NO, NO, NO, IT'S MURDER
NO, NO, NO, IT'S MURDER
Oh...and who hears when plants cry ?

I enjoy a bit of Smiths every now and again, Moggy... although this one is pretty heavy going. Heaven knows I'm miserable now.
