We are in no position to really claim to understand the potential consciousness of the Earth.

I much like many like to believe that the Earth is our great mother. Gaia and her complement is found in the great father Brahma.

It can go by many different names, but there does seem to be a collective consciousness. How else do we describe the way nature communicates, everything has an innate intelligence.

Research the mycelium network that is found in the soil, they have even found that a certain kind of tree communicate through a fungi network and use it to support each other.

The Earth is more than just the ground and dirt. Ask your neighbor the same thing and you'll get your answer. Every atom in your body came from the Earth and will return to it.

Do not anthropomorphise this chunk of rock and water.

Some thing tragic has happened to society. We have forgotten the difference between the Disney Universe and reality.

In this happenstance i think we should just be happy to be the top of a food chain. It's a bonus that we are on top of lots of food chains and clever enough to debate these imaginary situations.

On the the other hand Calgary Alberta has a problem with rabbits, bears, deer, and coyotes living in the city.

In a sense, though probably not in the sense that we would understand sentience. Is it alive? Certainly. If it weren't, it would be no different than the moon or Mars.

Anthropomorphize

If one wishes to communicate with a consciousness/awareness sometimes it is useful to create an interactive interface built out of our thought-feelings.

Say, the image of a cute girl.

Reason for a "cute girl" is because a girl is non-threatening and something we won't hurt. A non threatening anthropomorphic form that can be animated by our target awareness.

The real fun begins when our cute anthropomorphic form comes to life.

Communication 101, the language of appearance.

Yes ...

Sentient means simply able to feel or sense.

It does not mean that there is a self-aware consciousness present.

Well, seeing that you can't get living things from dead things, the answer would be "yes."

Earth is alive. The creatures living on the surface of the living earth are like the maggots on a dying corpse.

Thanks to GOD and ALLAH, the Earth is more sentient than any planet in the system of Sol.

How do you take more life out of that corpse?

Humans "currently" are made from EA*RTH dirt or are wearing worm suits (depending on how you view arteries-vessels-veins-capillaries) made from EA*RTH & have somewhat gained sentient intelligence?

Sentient - really? If it's alive surely it must have some notion of existence, would it not?


Does a daisy have some notion of its existence? Yet it is still alive. Life is not always sentiment...

Probably has classified discussions with SOL about those who think they are most sentient...

If it is, surely we should have sex with it, one way or another. Some say we have, but still up for debate I guess.

Her ribbons of plasma dance across the sky
And people think 'thoughts' are their own

When researching the word 'sentient', this is what was found -"The living knew themselves just sentient puppets on God's stage" T.E. Lawrence.

The universe is aware of itself.
It is seeing and knowing what it is appearing as - there isn't a separate thing seeing and knowing - the seer and seen are one.
