Do you imagine that trees and other plants feel? That they experience sensations, just in a way that we humans and our egocentric way of thinking are incapable of understanding? When the wind blows, or birds make their homes in the branches, or lightning strikes, do you think that maybe there’s some semblance of pleasure or pain?
Too, what do you imagine a tree feels if it is uprooted and transferred to another location? Excited for a new environment and surroundings, perhaps, or anxious about leaving the only home it has ever known?
At least it doesn’t have to worry about packing, moving all its stuff, changing its address with the USPS, transferring bank accounts, and all that mess.
