This quote touches on something I have said here before:
Vlatko Vedral, ... "I would also be excited to see whether something like this is already at work in nature," he says. "After all, you could say that all living systems are 'Maxwell's demons', trying to defy the tendency for order to turn back into randomness."
That is that what we call life is an entropy reduction force in PMR and that there is a difference between rocks, which follow the normal thermodynamic expectations in nature and trees, plants, bumblebees, and people which go against the principles, for a time at least. This is NOT an attempt to revive the "are trees consciously aware" debate. Just an observation.
Thank you Ramon, that is a good observation. That's that "are tree sentient" discussion, correct? :)
I feel what you are saying about plants being living as a living thing is in the entropy reduction business exactly until it dies, which we know means until the stream of Consciousness no longer "goes there", right?
No wait, that's not right. For plants it is until the stream of Consciousness going to the sentient being measuring (seing) the VR plant starts receiving "dead" data to interpret. That would also then possibly mean a sentient being could receive a stream of data interpreted as "dead" towards a not dead VR rendering. That would be freaky. This is a really weird thought, so if you don't get it, it may be a good sign. :)
