Hi, it’s Stephen Wolfing, science expert at the Greenygrey. I saw an interesting story about plants recently. It reported that photosensitive molecules in their leaves gather intelligence about sunlight, and make stems grow in a certain direction to reach light and reap its benefits. They will also compete with other plants and living organisms to survive and grow.
Growth is one of the 3-Ds of Y
I found it intriguing to think that something that seems so random and accidental as plant growth actually has a kind of ‘thought’ and ‘knowledge’ about it. These are of course the three dimensions of the greenYgrey Y.
And the dissecting of the greenygrey Y into its three dimensions, which I think is a first in etymological science, is reminiscent of the advances in nanotechnology.
At the tiniest levels of life scientists are finding traits such as competition for survival and prosperity that still rule human society, which is considered the most advanced (by humanity), and some claim special (special humans), amongst Earth’s life.
Growth D Representative
As we think most of our readers are humans, we thought we’d provide a D human representative to epitomise growth.
We have chosen Debbie Harry. Debbie had a hard early life, being adopted, but grew into the icon of her generation as the lead singer of Blondie. And not only was Debbie a beautiful and brilliant singer, but she also stuck by her long-term partner and bandmate, Chris Stein, when he suffered a debilitating illness for several years.
So not only did Debbie have to fight and learn to survive, but she also grew up with strong personal morals.
