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 sky...like 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 !!!
