ioCulture,(Swarm)Culture And Intelligence
A. "Rooting for swarm intelligence in plants" Researchers argue for a type of vegetative group decision making usually associated with humans and social animals, and go out on a limb by also proposing that information may be transmitted electrically. http://www.sciencenews.org/view/generic/id/67424/title/Rooting_for_swarm_int elligence_in_plants
B. BioCulture,(Swarm)Culture And Intelligence http://pulse.yahoo.com/_2SF3CJJM5OU6T27OC4MFQSDYEU/blog/articles/53061
The core (wordnet.princeton) definition of "intelligence" is "the ability to comprehend, to understand and profit from experience". These surviving abilities are different for different cultures, for the different phenotypes within a genotype, therefore each phenotype has its own specific "intelligence".
All biological entities are intelligent. It takes intelligence to survive, i.e. to temporarily constrain more energy in order to postpone the self-constitutional energy fueling the cosmic expansion.
C. Multicellular organisms, including WE, - derive from communities of cooperative monocellular organisms, that - derive from cooperative associations of DNA (or RNA) genes, genomes, which are also organisms, that - were evolved, are produced and employed by RNA genes, which are Earth's primary base organisms. - All Earth's organisms are evolved RNAs.
D. Shock yourself: - Imagine plants upside down. Their root system are their head/brain complex. - Other, non-self-replicating mass formats, f.e. black holes, are "intelligent", too. Even if they do not have "comprehension" and/or "understanding" mechanisms, they do, too, "profit from experience" and try gobbling mass or energy to prolong their temporary survival, to postpone sharing the fate of all spin-array mass-formats as fuel for expanding the cosmos, for reconverting the mass resolved at the big-bang back into energy.

Dispel Some Figments Of Present Science Imagination
"Galaxies pin down dark energy" http://physicsworld.com/cws/article/news/44468
- Dark energy and matter YOK. Per E=Total[m(1 + D)] all the energy and matter of the universe are accounted for.
- Higgs Particle YOK. Mass begins to form below some value of the above D.
- Sleep is inherent for life via the RNAs, the primal Earth ORGANISMS formed and active only under direct sunlight in pre-metabolism genesis era.
- Natural selection is ubiquitous for ALL Mass Formats. It derives from the expansion of the universe.
- Epigenetics: Where Life Meets the Genome http://www.bionews.org.uk/page_66997.asp?dinfo=rWfnKzZO4tkhJf38jsJ5EeJo
Epigenetics = a) the study of heritable changes in gene function that do not involve changes in DNA sequence b) the science of enduring changes in the pattern of gene activity, during embryo development and beyond, that do not involve alteration of the DNA sequence.
The "heritable or enduring changes" are epiDNAtics, not epigenetics. Alternative splicing is not epigenetics, even if/when not involving alteration of the DNA sequence. Earth life is an RNA world.
It's the RNAs that evolve proteins. AND IT'S THE RNAs THAT HAVE EVOLVED AND PRODUCE AND EMPLOY THE DNA ( and RNA ) templates to carry out life processes, for enhancing Earth's biosphere, for augmenting and constraining as long as possible some energy by augmenting its self-propagation, constraining some of the total energy of the universe, all of which is destined to fuel the ongoing cosmic expansion.
IT HAS ALWAYS BEEN AND IT STILL IS AN RNA EARTH LIFE.
Science should adjust its vision, comprehension and concepts.
