Plants rule the world.
Plants might be smarter than we give them credit for. They have been here long before animals. They really could have set up a lot of the rules.
What if human consciousness was manipulated as part of a great scheme by plants to rule the earth. With no voices or opposable thumbs, they had to do it with flora and fauna. The ulterior motive is to make life better for plants.
There is the distinction between the wisdom of the tribe and the life force that surges through a plant? We still don’t quite know what the process is that kick-starts the life we take for granted. We can see it function, feel the affects and understand that sunlight’s radiant energy makes things grow.
There is a mystery that remains.
Consciousness is at the fringes of understanding, How did we get here? What are we supposed to do now? Where are we going to end up? The plants may know. The results of our hunting and gathering imbue us with wisdom that feeds both our body and mind? We, the victims of their manipulation, live blissfully taking care of them.
This wisdom is beneficial to the plants so it is in their best interest to take care of us. There are hidden agendas and instincts that transcend human consciousness. Michael Pollan in a TED talk asks “How do plants see us and other species in their worldview?”
What if we were just unsuspecting pawns in a clever game played by plants. Is there a defense that the culture has. In the best selling book on the fundamentals of food, he explains what makes the good and bad parts of the complex system beneficial to mankind.
