    Seeds - Tips and Experience, Raising Plants, Any Farmers Around Here?

    Hello, for I guess obvious reasons on this forum, I think most of us has a certain negative attitude toward seeds as a food resource. But I would want to turn to their, I suppose, functional, or more appropriately, meaningful goal in nature. I would want to learn more about conditions and...

    This is perhaps one of the most impactful studies I have come across since I started following Peat and his work. It not only suggests how anesthetics likely work, but also provides evidence in favor of the argument I have repeatedly made on this forum - i.e. that having consciousness does NOT...
