    Yes, plants don't have a mind but still conscious and are living. (Report) Reply

    Plants, Protista and other forms of life are living. I can neither confirm nor deny a state of consciousness within them

    Somewhere down the line, thinking is becoming a lost art and merely acquising to doctrines that make little sense is apparently the norm... It amuses me how little we understand and yet how much we brag about things that are, at best myths or superstitions, and blatant lies at worst.. (Report) Reply
