plants are amazing

1 post in this topic

this seemed like the best place to post this since there isn't a science section.

http://www.scientificamerican.com/article.cfm?id=when-it-comes-to-photosynthesis-plants-perform-quantum-computation

this boggles my mind. the article's a few years old, but i found it recently. i can't stop thinking about it. and to extend the article's premise one step further, what if there are actually far fewer plants than there looks like, but many plants are actually multiple instances of the same plant?

there isn't an emoticon for how that makes my brain feel.
