But it seems true that plants do react on influences from outside, and this pretty fast. That makes me optimistic that once we know about the biochemical pathways and we learn about kind of an intelligence and will be able to develop methods of communication.
It's just that it might be a bit difficult to communicate with a being that knows a half a dozen words or so, such as "up", "down", "light", "wound", "predator".
As we have discussed endlessly before, it probably does not even know the word "ouch". and definitely not "hello" or "hug".
