OK - just kidding, BUT I saw a very interesting recent study of plant life's consciousness. There really is very strong evidence for it, and a even for communication or "awareness of other" among plants.

The study utilized techniques developed for animal non-verbal detection (similar to lie-detector gear) to indetify and measure responses of plants to their enviroment. They meant to understand why plants responded positively to certain musical stimulii. They discovered that plants responded with significant 'emotion' to being cut or trimmed - and amazingly with almost the same response when a plant near them was cut or trimmed.
