You are only scratching the surface (har, har) of the subject. A few decades ago, a fellow named Cleve Alexander--I believe that is right--did some amazing work with plants. He demonstrated that they felt pain, that they felt pain produced in other organisms in the vacinity and responded to--get this--being hooked to a lie detector unit. He found that plants literally scream in their own fashion when damaged or even threatened!
As far as I know, no one proved him wrong, crazy or a liar. There was at least one book on the topic perhaps more.
However, you will find a lot of correspondingly supportive data has developed over the subsequent years from conventional studies that detail about how how plants react to various factors that interact with them.
One can jump to the conclusion of a basic metaphysical "law" that claims that everything, a speck of dirt, a rock and especially living organisms have a sense of being even if that state is restricted according their particular circumstances.edit on 21-4-2011 by Aliensun because: (no reason given)
