Can Plants Think?

Find out in our latest video how incredibly intelligent plants really are! Not only can they smell, hear, and touch – they even store memories!

Let’s face facts here. Your plants are probably smarter than you are. Scientists have measured interactions between plant roots (which are interconnected in the soil through mycelium) that are almost identical to the action potentials happening in the human brain.  And since the plant roots are interconnected like floral neurons, it is really creating a giant brain that stretches through the soil in all directions When will we realize the plants are really in charge here?

Watch this TED talk from Stefan Mancuso for more info.

I wanted to point out this asapscience video is speaking about plant intelligence and communication through chemical signaling like ethylene and others, which implies plants might be reacting slowly as chemicals diffuse passively from areas of high concentration to areas of low concentration. The action potentials discovered by Stefan Mancuso are electrical signals that are able to transfer information much, much faster. Plants are very aware of their surroundings.

Yesterday, Lupita Nyong’o was named the most beautiful person of 2014 by people magazine. This is so important to me because when I was a young girl living in Ghana, I had a shaved head an dark brown skin. I never felt beautiful or worthy or talented enough….

He designed this special shoes, shared between him and his paralyzed daughter just to make her feel the sensation of walking.

WEEP DAFEELS PENETRATE ME

Oh my goodness

This is probably so good for her body, too! Imagine her muscles getting moved in ways they don’t normally and she is upright and hopefully not having any pressure spots! This is lovely in so many ways!

This is a wonderful invention, but the man in the picture is one of the testers. He is not the inventor. The inventor was an Israeli woman named Debby Elnatan who developed this with an Irish company for her son.
