Good point. Didn't mean to exclude plants. Still, our flavor of consciousness is not a product of plant experience. Of course eating other animals is considered pivotal in the development of hominid intelligence. That may not be the case, but we certainly eat a lot of animals now. Plants don't seem to have developed much of a consciousness that we can relate to. -- You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google Groups "Everything List" group.
