Plants feel pain, are telepathic?

Sorry if this has already been posted somewhere, I couldn't find whether it has or not as my search option doesn't seem to want to work at the moment. I came across this today and I found it absolutely fascinating. Apparently modern science has proved that not only do plants feel pain, but they actually show signs of telepathy as well.


Can plants actually have feelings? This was the conclusion of Cleve Backster back in the 1960s. He’s the former CIA interrogation specialist that connected polygraph sensors to plants and discovered that they reacted to harm (i.e. cutting their leaves) and even to harmful thoughts of humans in proximity to them. Backster decided on impulse to attach his polygraph electrodes to the now-famous dracaena in his office, then water the plant and see if the leaves responded. Finding that the plant indeed reacted to this event, he decided to see what would happen if he threatened it, and formed in his mind the idea of lighting a match to the leaf where the electrodes were attached. And that was when something happened that forever changed Baxter’s life and ours. For the plant didn’t wait for him to light the match. It reacted to his thoughts!




I've always loved making things grow and have always had lots of herbs and plants growing where I live. Always thought there was a lot more to them than what they're given credit for though this really makes me wonder about the few plants that I have killed over the years
Makes you wonder about a lot of things.. for as long as I can remember I've been one to think there is a lot more to life than what we're aware of, so much more energy and interconnectedness that what we like to think or what we're comfortable acknowledging.

Science Proves Plants Feel Pain and Have Telepathy!

I came across this last night. I do believe plants have "feelings" and "intelligence" of sorts that we can't begin to comprehend. Consciousness (on some unknown level), I think, would be a better word for it:

This is awesome thankyou for sharing! I too have always thought that plants are conscious just like every living thing on this earth,to grow i believe you have got to have some level of consciousness. Fascinating stuff!

…modern science has proved that not only do plants feel pain…


…they groan when they die, too.

I read about that a few years back. The guy knew the trees had intelligence but could not get them to do what he wanted to. So the government cut his job since he couldn't enslave the trees.

I talk to the trees and they do communicate with me, I just can't understand what they are telling me very well. They might as well be talking to the wall. I did my own testing on the trees, the tic tester I have sent a signal to all trees in a twenty foot area around the test tree that could be picked up at the branches. The electrolytes in the trees and soils seem to conduct the signal better than a copper automotive wire.

So the trees can possibly communicate with all other trees in the forest, anything they perceive can be communicated to other plants. If a deer is chewing on one tree, the tree can tell all other plants about it and they can boost their plant defense chemicals almost instantly.

Absolutely fascinating subject! I always felt there was more to plants that meets the eye.

It's already been known that when animals grouse on vegetation, the plants release a chemical and even a photochemical signal to neighboring plants.
The only most cunning plant life is the common property lawn. In evolutionary standards, this grass has become the most adaptable racing horse in the word.
Short grasses will rule the next millenium...

Well what are Vegans going to eat now?

Perhaps this will free them by helping them to understand the ecosystem as a whole and that food is food. Either that or they are going to starve.

But doesn't grass have feelings too?

Or are you one of those Anti-grass racists?

Soleynt Green is probably a little fatty this days based on what I see...lol

They do and they ARE SPOILLED!!. They get showered every morning and Pablo/Pepe comes in every morning to keep the greens looking good for us "golfers". I am Pro-green, and there is a new Soylent nutrient shake roaming around.

Absolutely excellent post, this very topic has been on my mind for sometime now. Far too many people quickly deem plants as nothing more than simple and sadly do not take the time to truly think about what they are, as well as come to the understanding that these vastly complex organisms literally work miracles every single day. They capture and harvest light with perfect efficiency, and here is the part that boggles the mind: a photon of light reaching the plant can be compared to you running blindfolded, hands bound behind back, through a dense forest, and you safely exiting, without running into a single tree along the way. Now here is the question I have that pertains to the purported feelings and telepathic capabilities of plants: what if they are intermediaries of sorts, which were created and put here by either God, gods, or highly advance intelligent life (whichever one you choose to believe in) with the specific purpose of being "Watchers" or something of that sort, to keep tabs on the development, wrongdoings, etc. of humanity, then report back to the creators. I mean nobody would suspect such a thing, they would be perfect for carrying out such a task. I would really appreciate some feedback from the ATS community, I'm very interested 'n exited to hear what you all think of this... whether it be agreement or argument, both are welcomed. Thank you for taking the time to read what I have to say and thank you for posting this great thread.

I can think of one plant that may be an intermediary between God and man. Or at least man and the desire for pizza.

Thanks for this! My family makes fun of me because I treat my plants as pets. This morning I gathered my houseplants outside because it was overcast and tickled them with them with the hose. It was like a plant party.
It has always seemed clear to me that they are interacting with us and the environment in many ways.

Zooey Deschanel and Mark Wahlberg- "The Happening".

Plants begin excreting a substance into the air which causes people to kill themselves.

This makes me wonder. If plants have a type of "consciousness", then why wouldn't crystals? They grow and change?
Just wondering out loud.
