The Intelligence of Nature

The Intelligence of Nature

with Ethnobotanist and Deep Ecologist Jolie Elan M.S.

Indigenous wisdom holds that the Earth is sentient and intelligence, now cutting-edge science is coming to the same conclusion. For example, when pine trees get over-heated, they release aerosols that create clouds to deflect solar radiation. Tobacco plants overrun by pests chemically enlist helper bugs to eat the pests. The field of Plant Intelligence (A.K.A Plant Neurobiology) shows that plants smell, taste, make clear choices, exhibit learned behavior, and share resources with the sick and needy.  When viewed through a Gaian lens even the coronavirus, which many believe is “not alive,” is highly intelligent, and just might have the capacity change the genetic code of every human on Earth.

Jolie speaks with Herbalist Matthew Wood about the Intelligence of Nature

The intelligence of nature extends far past individual and multiplies through the diverse community members (fungi, bacteria, viruses, animals) who team up in highly intelligent ecosystems. That’s pretty smart. Join Ethnobotanist and Deep ecologist Jolie Elan as we explore some mind-blowing discoveries in the fields of Deep Ecology and Plant Intelligence.

“Jolie guides us through many examples where the intelligence of Nature truly shines and helps strengthen our knowledge that plants show a thought process or make ‘informed decisions’ about their everyday lives. It was a truly fascintating learning opportunity and I am grateful that you’re making this learning opportunity available to us.
