Intelligence Without Brains

  • Publisert År siden

    World Science Festival

    Runtime: 1:29:12

    How much brain do you need to be smart? Bees and ants perform marvels as colonies, though each insect has barely any brain. And plants-with no brain at all-exhibit behaviors that, by any definition, count as intelligent. Brace yourself for a mind-bending exploration of plants that learn new behaviors and warn their brainless fellows of danger; vines that compete with each other; molds that solve puzzles; and trees that communicate and cooperate through a ‘wood-wide web’ of microscopic mycological fibers. Perhaps the real question is, are we smart enough to appreciate the vast range of intelligence that surrounds us?

Yea, very complex question, if we believe that killing plants is unethical, then even vegan-isms can’t be an ethical solution? It protects the animals of course, but now the plants are being mass farmed into their deaths without a proper life in their natural habitat? Does this contradict our strive for “good” ethics? And does it re-validate the eating of meat because humans evolved as omnivores and always had to consume other living beings to sustain our own life, So humans always have to consume life so why decide that animal life is more precious than plant life? Would love any input

Move away from universal "vibrations", and the supposedly Rational beings mind will live going in circles, like science, throwing out the baby with the bath water in relation with "Divine Creation". Supremacy is more harmful than one can ever suspect.

One of the best discussions I have seen here. Very interesting and I think Natalie did a great job as moderator letting the conversation flow naturally and the participants leading into or allowing another to add their expertise to the discussion. It is also very refreshing to hear participants say, 'We dont know.' instead of filling in the gap with opinion.

I'm kind of wondering if, the adaptation of the mycelia network plants take on; is somehow similar to the way our cells have absorbed mitochondria into the cells structure; adding it into our DNA. If we look will we find that there are markers specifically in plants for utilizing mycelia networks? Not in the way our cells make it themselves, but the cells in the roots actively seek out the network or cultivate for their own needs.

The assumption of science is that we don't know the answer, and requires a kind of humility absent of assumption to carefully look at every possibility without bias. I don't understand why we demonize these people so much when this group more than any other shows us how little we know about the most obvious things...how much we dismiss the very living beings that support us in every possible way. How did we get this far without knowing these things?

So different from political debates. Made me thinks this is typical example of how scientists contribute to progress of human race by cooperation AND politicians undo that by causing divisions among people and make one hostile towards the other. Shocking isn't it? Edit: btw why they got difficulties to describe what they're saying using only words, hence using hands gestures and body movements too? But why political debates never needing more than mouths?

Ha ha... I always KNEW that I could hear the grass grow! Yay! As for intelligence, and the notion of brain, we only fail to recognize the intelligence of different species, because we compare them to us. Why do humans always believe that we are the pinnacle of evolution and intelligence? If that were true, we should have created peace on Earth by now.... where is it? Intelligence may be something different from human intelligence altogether. There are powerful ways and wordless means of communication which we humans have neglected to practice. I am saying that, because I believe we could have very different skill sets, if only we were inclined to admit to them and practice them. I am thinking of telepathy, for instance, and intuitive processing. But no! We are glorifying the intellect as being the utmost "us". I want to remind everybody that the intellect is just a tool, it is not "us", regardless of how sharp it may be. And I refuse to join those who say it is what defines the human being. That's where we went wrong. That's also where lot of science research went and still is going wrong.

Silly laughter spoiled it from the beginning of this talk. Here is a very serious and interesting area of research about plants and how they communicate underground, and also about how slime can find the shortest route to exit outside of a maze, but I found the first two participants very annoying with their laughter and their quite insufficient explanations of what they had found and what they were doing with it. Despite the slides, explanations remained scant. We need a different kind of presentation to explain the subjects broached here more efficiently.

To the question of consciousness, are ants or trees self aware, I personally think yes. Definitely they react to their environment, to neighbors, predators and to grouping. I think, remembering Niels Bors and David Bohm, there is a vibration (like thought energy) that leads to movement, action, reaction, creation and vibration patterns or waves that pervade in Nature and in the Universe.

I know plants can communicate with each other, to insects, and to animals (including humans). For a long time, I had a large number of houseplants. We're talking hundreds of plants inside the house. As well, I had hundreds of plants outside the house. Over time, I began to notice myself being "called" by plants in distress. I still don't know how I got the call, but it manifested itself in me as a "strong urge" to go check out a specific plant or set of plants. Every time when I visited the plant(s), I noticed some cause of distress. The usual for houseplants was needing water or fertilizer. The usual for outdoor plants were pests. It got to the point that I felt like I was "connected" to all my plants in some mysterious way. Well, after a series of events in my life, I no longer have any indoor or outdoor plants, but I do have a lot of fond memories. I still wonder from time to time just exactly how plants communicate and what sort of intelligence they have if they seem to have enough intelligence to call out to a known caretaker of them for help when they needed it.
