PhotonQ-Exploring the Fall

Exploring the forest this morning, falling and turning gold, orange, brown, red... Colourfulyfun Nature !!! Trees poping out of the Earth, expending and inviding the neurons as a forest of collective intelligence...


As I walked through this part of the forest, it reminded me of Stefano Mancuso 's talk I saw this week, on the roots of plant intelligence . Explaining how plants behave in some oddly intelligent ways: fighting predators, maximizing food opportunities ... But can we think of them as actually having a form of intelligence of their own?


Stefano Mancuso is a founder of the study of plant neurobiology, which explores signaling and communication at all levels of biological organization, from genetics to molecules, cells and ecological communities. Brilliant research !!!
