    They are living thing like every organism on earth.Taste depends on chemical elements they contain the most.

    Strange post.

    What is the real question?

    I don't think there is any "real question." Like most of his other posts, this one appears to be just another cry for attention.

    I would say it is self regulating but, since it is not self-replicating, it cannot be considered "living" by most common definitions of an organism.

    The self-regulating aspects are known as the Gaia hypothesis.

    Gentlemen!
    Enough of the troll pictures. Responding to a thread is entirely optional. Treating each and every member with the same degree of respect is not optional.

    I agree!

    It's one thing to call out someone as a troll when they are posting in someone else's thread. But when it is THEIR thread, they have a lot more latitude in topic selection. Others have the option of ignoring the thread. If you don't and, instead, post troll pictures or other disparaging remarks, the question of just who is playing the role of troll can legitimately be asked.

    Then neither are you! What makes you think plants don't replicate? You should see the weeds in my garden.

    Thank you for bringing this question about plants and your College Level engineering degree to an electronics forum. At first glance, I would think a 6 year old girl would ask this kind of question, but I am sure you intend some learned project which will change he course of our future. Please elaborate on which aspects of plant life you intend to interface with electronic devices so that we may understand better how to serve you.

    If he were going to interface it to an electronic device, then it would be off-topic for the Off Topic forum! This forum is explicitly for topics OTHER THAN electronics. You, yourself, have started numerous threads in this forum that are not in any way electronic related. So have I. So have most other members. Why can't RITTESH?

    If you don't like a thread that someone starts, particularly in Off Topic, you always have the option to ignore it.

    Some questions leave open for interpretation as to exactly which aspect is being questioned. See this one from yesterday:

    http://forum.allaboutcircuits.com/threads/transformer-and-bridge-rectifiers.118722/#post-938306

    Three senior members had completely different (and valid) beliefs about the subject matter and they offered three very different answers which might or might not be useful, depending on what the Thread Starter actually intended.

    I humbly withdraw my inquiry about any connection to electronics. I am also fairly good with carpentry, but I don't think that is the correct interpretation, either. I will leave this matter for others to decipher.

    Wood is a plant, no? Or, at least it was once.

    If it is not living, how does it grow ?

    And plants are a critical part of the self-regulation of the planet. They can do a lot but it all takes time if the extremes that they need to regulate get too severe.

    The plants can suck the water, absorb sunlight, can grow up, can generate next generation, if you study deeper and deeper then you will find they can feel scare, can feel heat, can feel everything surround them, and they have their own will.

    I will doing the energy exchanging with the trees sometimes, normally they will fellow my will to do, once I was doing the energy exchanging with a tree, but it won't fellow my will, it's quite strange that I still don't know why, in the normal way, I will send my energy through my left hand to the tree and absorb its energy to my right hand, and the energy has a circulation through my two hands and my body to the tree, and next turn I will send my energy through my right hand to the tree and absorb its energy to my left hand, and the energy has a circulation through my two hands and my body to the tree again, after doing that several times then I can absorb its energy through my two hands to my body.

    But that times the tree refused to let me absorb to my hands and it through their roots and to my two legs, and the energy has a circulation through my body to my two hands and to the tree again, that is a big cycle that I did it in other place before, and that is my will, but I was not start plan to do that, but the three did it, how does it know my mody can do that kind of circulation, it is still a puzzle, this is my real experience, it was not listen from someone or the story from other people.

    I wonder how a wooden stake feels when driven into the heart of a vampire?

    This sounds extremely dangerous. Especially during a thunderstorm.

    Oh. And possibly a violation of the TOS.
