I have done an experiment with tomato plants. I did this because I was taught that plants are living creatures and living creatures are living because
of vital functions. I study electronics and, I tell you, if the definition of "alive" is "capable of doing vital functions", robots could be
So I said NOO, I can't create a living creature. So I redefined "life" as "soul" and "living creature" as a body that has a soul. So, how am I
going to confirm plants are living creatures with this definition? Well, this is what I did:
The soul is belived to be independent of the body. As it connect to the world, it should be cappable to receive information from another soul or
things of the world and hopefully react to it. I planted 13 plants. The 13th died (so funny), and I named them after they had about 5 leaves. I named
them depending on the way I found them that day: Big, Medium, Mudmal (it was very dirty), and so on. I named none "small" or anything negative. I
was very jealous with my plants: I cheched them every day and even scolded the bugs that stuck on them before killing them. Harvest time came, and Big
gave big tomatoes, medium medium tomatoes, Mudmal strange tomatoes (they looked like clown shoes) and so on. Note that the only ones with names
according to sizes were medium and large, but all seemed to respond. Let's say that doesn't proof anything, ok?
I was commanded to kill my beloved plants to plant some more after harvest time was over. I cried over them, but an order is an order. We planter more
plants, but then I was resented and didn't name any. What for? I would have to kill them later! So we had no harvest that year, even though the
plants did grow. That proves nothing, ok?
So now we planted again more tomatoes than ever before. After planting, they all were watered excepting for 7 special ones that I reserved for my
ends. I named them instead, this time also before they were born. I named them mentally and went to greet them every day just looking at them, careful
not to breath on them. The others were regularly watered, mine never watered ecxepting for the days it rained. Mine were the furst to be born, the
strongest and they ALL were born. From all the others only about 8 (from about 30) were born. Their names? The have names of some saints (I wonder
what kind of tomatoes will I harvest?) as they were 7 (a beautiful number) and were only fed from the water that comes from the sky (the heavens fed
them!). We can still say this proves nothing, but so far the score is perfect. I'll keep planting until I can say it proves something. For now, is a
very interestnig fact.
I'm planning an experiment with the tomatoes, but maybe you can help me by doing it? As the plants are flowering, but harvest time is kinde far...
this is it: take 2 tomatoes and look at one every day with dislike, thinking about bad things it doesn't even have. Just hate it. Do the opposite
with another tomato. Idealize it. The second tomato should last a lot more. Maybe then repeating the experiment could proove something about life and
souls. See ya! Answer me please!
