    [E–pub] Verde brillante AUTHOR Stefano Mancuso I really felt disappointed with this book because I was expecting much science and content The writing wasn't as mature and elouent as I've come to expect with science and nonfiction books even pop science The majority of the book is spent talking about challenging our own belief systems and rethinking the way we view plants but

Free download Ç PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free ê Stefano Mancuso Stefano Mancuso ê 2 Summary Verde brillante Characters  PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Stefano Mancuso a leading scientist and founder of the field of plant neurobiology presents a new paradigm in our understanding of the vegetal world Combining a historical perspective with the latest in plant science Mancuso argues that due to cultural prejudices and human arrogance we continue to underestimate plants In fact they process information sleep remember and signal to one another showing that far from passive machines plants are intelligent and aware Through a survey of plant capabilities from sight and touch to communic. This is not as kooky a book as it appears I really like one of the fundamental ways this is argued we are intensely anthropocentric and so we really define intelligence as most like humans We might not say it in so many words but that s really the beans of it That s a pretty circular definition when applied to ourselves isn t it Thinking about this reminds me of Ender s Game a bit The buggers Because people perceived them as unthinking and unintelligent and most importantly unfeeling they were to be exterminated like the bugs they were thought to be But in actuality it was just that the hive ueens were the only real decision making minds and the buggers existed in a very different kind of consciousness and communicated in ways humans weren t aware of but they were no less intelligent something only Ender was able to recognize The author mentions a Star Trek I think it was episode in which an alien species who lives and moves on a much faster time frame than us much as we live and move faster than plants who take weeks to say move into sunlight instead of seconds comes to earth and thinks we re no sentient than rocks simply because they don t perceive us as even moving we re to them what plants are to us Plants are not intelligent like us No one is intelligent like us because we made up the word intelligent and it only fairly applies to us since we define it by ourselves But every species if they had words would define intelligence as most like themselves So judging any other species by ours is clumsy egotistic and pointless That s a major prejudice that we have to be aware of when dismissing plants as little than rocks It s a prejudice that for thousands of years prevented us from recognizing that animals have rights admittedly a few people persist under the delusion that there is nothing immoral about vivisecting a dog but for the most part even people who support animal testing recognize it s a necessary evil or something along those lines I also loved the puns just casually thrown in and unacknowledged A most FRUITFUL correspondence We hope this will help PLANT some doubts Charming thought provoking credible little book

Free download Ç PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free ê Stefano Mancuso Stefano Mancuso ê 2 Summary Verde brillante Characters  PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Are plants intelligent Can they solve problems communicate and navigate their surroundings Or are they passive incapable of independent action or social behavior Philosophers and scientists have pondered these uestions since ancient Greece most often concluding that plants are unthinking and inert they are too silent too sedentary just too different from us Yet discoveries over the past fifty years have challenged these ideas shedding new light on the extraordinary capabilities and complex interior lives of plants In Brilliant Green. Thanks to NetgalleyThe book asks us sometimes repeatedly to step outside of our preconceived notions Fair enough I m not a member of an old boy scientific network so I have no vested interests besides learning for learning s sake So what does Mr Mancuso ask us to swallowEasily enough it s just the idea that plants are intelligent No biggie actually I was convinced pretty early in the book especially when we throw out prejudices such as the need for a brain or eyes or any of the traditional sense organs we animals possessThink about it Plants make decisions all the time not just in hunting for water discovering new pockets of phosphorous or other trace elements competing with other plants defending against and entering into agreements with bacteria insects and animals Even the way they decide to propagate themselves show a remarkably diverse toolset from communicating by delicious ripe fruit chemically uniue and heavily directed pheromones that entice very specific animals and insects and mimicry And when they choose to do any of it is based on a very complex decision plot But they re plants you say Just dumb plants I m paraphrasing the the author s imagined critiue crowd I mow the lawn It doesn t seem to complain How smart can it beActually pretty damn smart The tips of even a small plant s roots can number 15 million discrete sensory apparatus and larger plants like corn can have upwards of a hundred million Think of the tips of the roots as the neurons They make all the decisions This is real And real communication takes place across same species of plants over great distances just as real communication is possible and even likely across speciesTrue non human non animal intelligence right here on Earth Sure I m sold Look at how plants have learned to communicate with us If we re so damn smart then why have plants started preening themselves like courtly lovers trying to land a hot mate with humanity Hell they still think that ants are pretty hot shit Whole colonies will violently defend trees We are cultivating orchards food crops medicinal plants by the hundreds of scores and in return these plants THRIVEThey re alive They think If they give us pretties we take very good care of them I would not be surprised if in the next 100 years assuming we haven t killed off all the rest of the intelligent life on the planet most of the plant life turns into one gigantic catering service to humanity After all as long as their root systems survive and they re given comfy environments they re just fine with being eaten They re not reliant on us but they sure as hell know how to exploit us Believe it or not all of this is proven science Just because some of us don t believe what is obvious such as the fact that than 95% of the world s biomass is plant matter and it ll go on being the dominant life form even if all the animals including us die doesn t mean it isn t trueThere s an interesting anecdote that paraphrases that we nonchalantly ignore the importance and intelligence and motive and sensory capabilities of plants JUST because they re slower than we can readily perceive They re not less complex In fact they have all of our senses plus a much wider capacity to sense Theories have most plants linked up to at least 20 full blown senses Not just our five Hell I d LOVE to be able to sense gravity Oh wait I do It s that way Okay so perhaps his definition of senses needs a bit fleshing whether its animal or plant flesh but I am convinced on the intelligence An interesting unproven hypothesis speculate that they work together as emergent properties rather complicated than simply transmitting through the roots either chemically spatially or even through the tiny clicking sounds that all roots make whether or not it s the cracking of the cellular wall or it s a method of communication Swarming intelligent emergence within a root system That s so totally awesome Discussions of AIs and Other Computing Models are also touched in this bookThe only reason I knocked a star was in the total page time spent exhorting us to just uit it with our animal prejudices looking for intelligence that s just like us instead of what is apparent all around us Systems Theory should have put a nail in that coffin of thought but alas the opposite is apparently still going strong I wanted even facts and even wild theories not persuasive arguments Stop sitting around like a vegetable people
