Is cannabis communicating with us?

    When we get high, is this an abstract form of language? Are cannabinoids being used as a chemical way of communicating between phytological and neurological substrates? Analogous to the way that our brain already uses various chemicals and receptors to communicate with itself?

    Plants have already spent a billion years evolving ways to communicate with eachother through complex networks of signalling that we are only beginning to understand. Wouldn't it be naive to think they aren't reaching out in various ways in an "attempt"---consciously or not---to communicate with us? We reciprocate by cultivating the stains that we "enjoy". This feedback loop might be what enables some form of mutual "understanding" between us.

    If so, what are they trying to say? How are our experiences connected? Are they teaching us different modes of thinking? Can we help them teach us more?

  4. I lead by example:

    I'ts winter I'm im my grow room large and very warm

    I'm on GC and read a noob is wanting to de leaf/defoliate his plants

    My blood pressure increases 10 fold as I try to keep calm and compose my prose

    a fan leaf annoying me for the last 10 minutes is no longer annoying me tickling my right eye

    I look toward that leaf it now about 18 inches from me no exceptions

    even the fan should be blowing in yet another direction

    question :"is that communication ..?

    many noobs here will disagree but thru sly observation these last 40 years

    I gotta ask what else..?

    I chill ..plants all types have been doing real well with out mankind for millions of years

    good luck

    ps I still play Mozart(ugh) to my week old veggers..easy

  5. Everything is consciousness thus everything is in communication one way or another, but yes, specifically plant and fungi are quite superior in these forms of communication. Modern man is only scratching the surface ;)

    I saved this a while back still blows my mind whoever shared it <3
    Mushrooms told me a story that they were once like us, humanoid. They advanced their technology to a point to where they could coil the entire evolution of their species into an organic container we call a "spore". They did this by decoding their own DNA. Now their technology, being as advanced as it was, couldn't save their planet from the inevitable dying of their sun. So this species decided to seed the Universe with the spores of their race. Spores which are capable of surviving the harshness of space, land on barren planets (or not barren) evolve to the environment (or evolve the environment around them) and begin the long evolutionary process of becoming conscious humanoid entities again.

  8. Yeah this has definitely been food for thought. We're not allowed to talk much here (what you said is fine, but GC rules prevent talking about that much further) but I've heard similar things out there, and definitely think it makes sense. But I also think there are multiple truths at play, and it only serves to limit ourselves when we reduce our own consciousness to a singular construct, and/or look for one point of genesis. Not saying this is what you're saying, but I sometimes get that vibe from such stories. In my opinion, nobody even knows how to define consciousnesss in any scientifically appropriate way, which is why I tried to carefully leave it out of my original post. But that's really the whole point here isn't it?

  9. Lol, I read that heavy metal makes plants wilt and die, I actually did a lot of research into this stupid shit lol. I'll have to find the link I saw that on when I get on my PC.
