Plant communication across the cosmos

That plants are an intelligent species, here on Earth, is obvious, to those familiar with the literature (and studies) extant.

For example, a new book, reviewed, by Harriet Baker, in the Times Literary Supplement [6/24/16, Page 27], Lab Girl by Hope Jahren [Fleet, £16.99] has this about the plants that author Jahren studies:

“They emerge from her memoir as much more than a bundle of biological processes, but beings with strange, secret lives, supported by astonishingly elegant machinery. [Bold print mine]

“A tree in distress signals to other trees …”

Such observations show up in other books I’ve provided here, What a Plant Knows: A Field Guide to the Senses by Daniel Chamovitz, Ph.D, [Scientific American/Farrar, Strauss and Giroux, NY, 2012] and The Secret Life of Plants by Peter Thompkins and Christopher Bird [Harper & Row, NY, 1973].

Dr. Chamovitz is cautious about plant consciousness, calling plants “aware” while Thompkins and Bird offer that plants communicate, consciously, with each other and us.

But what has this to do with UFOs?
If there is an advanced, evolved species of intelligent plant life on a planet in our galaxy or the Universe itself, and they are mobile, traveling the cosmos, or able to, one can imagine that plants here communicate with such a species, not using a iPhone or other technology but via telepathic communication, using the quantum principle of non-locality, the non-local principle as defined by Bells’s Theorem:


"There is no need for a faster-than-light signal to tell particle A what measurement has been carried out on particle B, because the universe, including particle A, already ‘knows’ what that measurement, and its outcome, will be." [Wikipedia]

That is, if the behavior of a particle on Earth is known instantaneously, by a particle at the far reaches of the Universe, cannot a thought process or thought generated here be known by a thought receiver in our galaxy or at the far-reaches Universe instantaneously also?

I’m positing that consciousness – information – is non-local, Ryle’s “ghost in the machine.” That is, consciousness is not constrained by the thinker or the space that the thinker resides in.

This is explained eruditely by Michael Talbot in his book, Beyond the Quantum [Bantam Books,Toronto, 1987/1988, Chapter 4, Page 83 ff]

If plants communicate here, on Earth, with other plants, as the “evidence” shows is the case, is it conceivable that plants here can communicate with like species elsewhere, a species that generated plant life here eons ago, or just happened upon a like species here while traversing our solar system?
(We all know that UFO entities have been reported to be inordinately interested in the flora of Earth, often spotted picking up plant specimens, or saving a fellow-creature in distress, perhaps.)
My point, again, is that plants may have evolved elsewhere and now travel the cosmos, in search of its plant brethren, who have sent signals – thoughts – indicating distress or how wonderful it is here, on Earth.

(UFOs with sentient plant life would come here purposefully, with a mission, allowing a caveat about my concern that UFOs would not be coming here in force just because Earth seems to be unique or special as some UFO buffs believe.)
