Could Earth Be Sentient?


Just so's you don't think Kitty has cornered the woo-woo department... emoticon

It began a few years ago as idle speculation - a possible story idea - but lately I've considered the possibility that the planet is sentient.

Is it really much of a stretch to consider that the world which gives birth to, and harbours all known life, could have evolved a form of consciousness along with all its billions of life forms, perhaps via a sort of osmosis? Unlike us, who've managed to evolve our own sentience within the span of a few million years, Earth has had billions of years to do so.

It might help explain why it seems so ticked off lately. We've not been very good guests the past couple hundred years or so.

I guess you knew at least one member of the choir might agree with you, Frank. emoticon

I believe Gaia has a soul/consciousness, just like the rest of us. And yes, she's been hurting a lot lately. From what I've heard, she desperately asked for help from the "others" over 70 years ago (atomic bombs very destructive to her). Since then -- although it may not look like it -- she's been been receiving it. And things are about to get much, much better for her/all of us.

A search will pull up:

Gaia has feelings too!

She must be pleased with some of her inhabitants, nevertheless:

I see no reason to dismiss the notion out of hand. After all, our consciousness rises from chemical and electrical transfers between cells, so why couldn't all the connections between all the life on Earth give rise to a 'super-consciousness' if you will.

Life is cool.
