Intelligence of the plants. Dissemination 93rd
The hypothesis of circular plant DNA, as primitive molecule of the origin of life on Earth, and as a precursor and expression of a circular animal DNA molecule requires multiple checks before becoming a theory of circulating plant DNA.
In previous blogs we talked about the evidence of unique ability, which only has circular plant DNA to generate the mechanism of production of oxygen, carbohydrates and shikimic acid. We also have provided evidence linking normal embryonic development of some animal organs (eye, bone system …) with the presence of certain plant nutrients in food from the mother (fish, birds and mammals). This information is not closer to confirm the substances of vegetable origin, whose production is regulated by circular DNA, directly has an influence through meta- genetic mechanisms in the expression of the animal DNA.
In this blog we will bring provide more details of this relation between plant DNA and animal DNA.
Until now it was believed that the plant did not have intelligence and this was a major problem in proving the hypothesis of a circular DNA. If the plants do not have anatomical structures that support intelligent activity, hardly animal genetic information, which supports it, can come from plant genetic information. However in recent years the plant neurophysiologists are advancing in obtaining evidence showing that plants are endowed with ability to understand, memory, decision capacity and even similar circadian cycles, even more basic than those of the animals.
If we consider by intelligence the ability to understand, assimilate, problem solving and storing of information we can say that plants have a certain degree of intelligence sustained by primitive anatomical structures that work by identical molecules to those used by animals.
Vegetable neurophysiologists base on the assertion of Darwin (1880) known as "root brain" which states that the apex of the root is similar to the brain of animals and is capable of receiving signals from the environment and coordinate a response function by the movement of the roots.
We can briefly summarize some of the evidence in the study of the behavior of roots and branches:
(1) Dr.Michel Thellier has shown that algae rhizoids and the apices of the roots of higher plants are called stromatolites formations that allow them to direct the roots towards the ground sensing the gravity.
Otoliths are structures that perform these same functions in animals, reaching its vestibular system, and are bases of the sense of balance.
(2) Dr. Frantisek Baluska has shown that there are cells at the base of the root of the plant, similar as the neurons from animals, in which can locate the auxin molecules, actin and myosin. These molecules have effects on elongation and contraction of plant cells and have the same function in animal cells.
(3) Finally Dr. Peter Folckman has shown that plants have certain memory resources especially in decisions regarding the direction of growth of the branches.
All these functions are based on certain anatomical structures and molecules, but whatever they are, they must all be regulated by a vegetable genetic code that could be the origin of the animal genetic code.
