Scientists Conduct an Experiment to Discover if Plants Respond to Pain



Source: Collective Evolution | by Arjun Walia

If you told somebody that plants can feel pain, you might think they are nuts, but the truth is – an enormous amount of research has been conducted by plant scientists, and much of it clearly shows how plants have some remarkable abilities to react to and sense the world around them. Some plant scientists insist that yes, plants are intelligent, they learn, remember, and again, react. So, it's not far off to suggest that they might even feel pain. There are also studies suggesting that plants can learn from experience.

"They have ways of taking all the sensory data they gather in their everyday lives… integrate it and then behave in an appropriate way in response. And they do this without brains, which, in a way, is what's incredible about it, because we automatically assume you need a brain to process information." – Michael Pollan author of "The Omnivore's Dilemma" and "The Botany of Desire" (source)

Plants respond to anesthetics. As shown in the video below, you can put a plant out with a human anesthetic. What's even more remarkable is the fact that plants can even produce compounds that are anesthetic to us!

All of this is fascinating, but again, many scientists are still reluctant to go as far as saying that yes, plants feel pain. On the other hand, some scientists do feel that way.

There is no doubt that they do posses intelligence, but then again, I guess it depends on your definition of intelligence.

Personally, I feel that all life on Earth is conscious, just because we do not communicate in the same manner, does not mean we should assume right away that there is nothing there. I believe that all life is perceiving, thinking, reacting and feeling in some sort of way. There have also been some interesting hypnotic regression cases, where people claim to have had past lives as a plant, or a tree, expressing that there is consciousness, and there are feelings, but that is a completely separate subject.

It's also interesting to note that there was a study published in 1968, in the International Journal of Parapsychology by a CIA veteran that claimed to show evidence that plants respond to human emotions and thoughts. This suggested that plants were actually telepathic. This experiment also claimed to have definitive proof that plants feel pain.(source)

Whether or not plants feel pain is an interesting topic, and it's experiments like the one below that continue to raise these questions. There is still much we don't understand, but the fact remains, nature was put here for a reason. It's vital to our survival and for all life to thrive on this planet. It's important that we begin to develop a relationship with it, rather than destroy it. We are all interconnected, and if the human race does not pursue a path that is more harmonious with all life on the planet, we won't be around for much longer.

About The Author

Arjun Walia

I joined the CE team in 2010 shortly after finishing university and have been grateful for the fact that I have been able to do this ever since There are many things happening on the planet that don't resonate with me, and I wanted to do what I could to play a role in creating change. It's been great making changes in my own life and creating awareness and I look forward to more projects that move beyond awareness and into action and implementation.
