Let's just say I think this is bunk:

> As for cows, the first question to ask, is why do you think cows think at all, and then work up from there. If lack of intelligient behavior is taken as a sign of deep contemplation, then you'll have to allow the same to rocks, perhaps the most pensive of all.
Granted rocks aren't in possession of any sort of neurons....
I guess your plant argument boils down to (no pun inten....) to: Is 
cruelness only limited to those who are aware?
A fair question. Lets stand it on it's head: Is it cruel to maim and 
otherwise inflict pain if the inflicter is not aware of their acts?
