No holds barred discussion on the Buddhadharma. Argue about rebirth, karma, commentarial interpretations etc. Be nice to each other.

Found a new article on plant memory Move over elephants – mimosas have memories too

Plants may lack brains and neural tissues but they do possess a sophisticated calcium-based signally network in their cells similar to animals' memory processes, they write.

Cool article about plants reacting to future events and plant memory

The Barberry, it would appear, has evolved a strategy where it's able to adaptively and selectively abort its own seeds to prevent parasitic infestation. It's considered the first ecological evidence of such complex behavior in plants, showing that they're capable of structural memory, the ability to discern between inner and outer conditions, and anticipate future risks.

Plants certainly seem to be "sentient" or have a "will" to live. Many scientific studies proclaim to prove that they have stress responses and act sentient in a number of ways. Wisdom and logic could not inform us otherwise even without said studies. They are living and desire to live without harm, that is evident. Even if we where to doubt this, the compassionate thing would surely be, to give them the benefit of this doubt and regard them as sentient.

Whether they have neurons or not, is just word-feud about taxonomy. :namaste:

The Dharma of The Buddha is illuminating beyond compare, cold, diamond-hard and so very austere. It will be touched by nothing, but the strictest of reasoning and the deepest of contemplation.
