Is attention evident in plants? - discipline

 

Who would have attention that a plant could be a witness to a crime - and even bear witness adjacent to the perpetrator? Well, it is true! In the early 1970's experiments were done on commonplace houseplants, by researchers who coupled a polygraph apparatus to a plant.

An appealing thing happened - the researchers exposed that their plants essentially acclaimed their owners, they responded to being talked to and praised, and they also fainted when exposed to damaging feelings or words, or violence going to at them. One conduct experiment complex two plants in a room and an dull character was instructed to go into the room and violently annihilate one of the plants. Later, the safe and sound "witness" plant was allied to the polygraph apparatus and the researchers had quite a few people, one at a time, come into the room where the plant was hooked up to the polygraph machine. When the guilty anyone entered the room the needle on the automaton went crazy!

Plants do have some kind of brain wave process, and they react to love and hate, and brute violence. But brain wave also has a different vital purpose; evolution.

An illustration of brain wave and evolution being associated is the African elephant. The matriarch of the herd has ivory tusks that are decidedly cherished by hunters and call for a large price tag on the black market. The survival and well being of the rest of the herd depends on her development and come across to lead them diagonally the African plains each season. In the last fifty years there has been a trend in the female elephant not increasing tusks; and a BBC News article dated September 25, 1998 reads, Elephants 'ditch tusks' to survive. "Experts?say elephants are down their tusks as a rapid and efficient evolutionary answer to avoid carnage by cruel and capable poachers who kill elephants for their ivory trophies. " We don't know what or where our attention course of action comes from, but maybe it is as tiny as the cell itself. It has continually been easier to see the domino effect of belief in animals and to accept as true that only they and us could perhaps have this attribute, but we have to be able to think exterior the paradigms of average everyday life.

God bent everything, alive and inanimate. We are all connected, plants, animals, and even the impassive stuff in our universe. It all came from the same "mixture" that Jesus spoke about in Pistis Sophia and the Bible. It all has "life". The catch seems to be that we don't classify "life" to cover all.
