Thinking, All Over Yer Body.
“They are very good at diffusing the same function all over the body.” You can remove 90% of a plant without killing it. “You need to imagine a plant as a huge brain… diffused everywhere.” – stefano manusco in the guardian.
All sorts of creatures ‘think’, or make sense of the world – brains or no. Making decisions, sensing, and so on – happens across many levels of life, including cells, plants, people. When I see plants move like this, I remember this. And I play around with feeling inside of my flesh, to feel what I can feel about how all of these cells of me are making sense of this world.
