Do you think trees have conciousness?
Oh, that was a joke. Some shrubs are just fine. I do think that plants have feelings. Hell, they like classical music.
What a naive question. Haven't you ever heard wood squeaking on a log fire ?
I would imagine that the trees have no sense of time. So the life of a tree, from a trees perspective must last a short instant.
If they don't have perspective, then they are merely a highly complex chemical reaction.
OK, this went over my head. And when I'm on tour I make choices from a rather large repetoire.
Trees talk when their leaves rustle and cry when their leaves shed.
Care to explain?
Some humans don't like classical music but they have feelings, what a conundrum.
I appreciate your humour, but I want serious answers my good Irish man.
If they have no sense of time, how do they know when to shed their leaves, when to produce buds and so on ?
Expect a serious answer to a serious question. Fire away !
You do see the logic problem in your argument. No human that does like classical music lacks feelings. You post is implying that my argument would say other humans would not have feelings. That is hardly a logical conclusion.
Did you vote?
If so, explain your choice.
I didn't conclude anything.
That will teach you all to ignore my advice about the need to define one's terms. So, from the top, feelings are ...
I never vote and I never explain why. Sorry about that but some things are meant to be kept private.
Your thoughts on whether trees have feelings should be kept private? :bugeye: yea ok...Please Register or Log in to view the hidden image!
You obviously know what feelings are, so why expect everyone else to be ignorant of them?
