This is russian thistle in her glory. Look at her climb a ladder of carbon to the sun, with precisely placed synapses to receive the wind. The colour of her sepals (not petals) are for the sun, not to attract insects.
The human brain is more complex than hers, but hers is a brain as well.
She too is conscious, but in the context of the world, not of herself.
We shouldn’t be greedy. We can praise intelligence where it finds us, right?
