“The life of man is the life of a moving being, and it would not be sufficient for him to develop body alone.  A plant is rooted: it stays in one place and cannot move.  It would be very surprising, therefore, to discover that a plant had a mind; or at least a mind in any sense which we could comprehend.  If a plant could foresee or project consequences, the faculty would be useless to it.  What advantage would it be for the plant to think: ‘Here is someone coming.  In a minute he will tread on me, and I shall be dead underfoot’?  The plant would still be unable to move out of the way.  All moving beings, however, can foresee and reckon up the direction in which to move; and this fact makes it necessary to postulate that they have minds or souls.”

And with that said…are you taking advantage of your capacity to think?!?!
