“Was not their mistake once more bred of the life of slavery that they had been living?—a life which was always looking upon everything, except mankind, animate and inanimate—‘nature,’ as people used to call it—as one thing, and mankind as another, it was natural to people thinking in this way, that they should try to make ‘nature’ their slave, since they thought ‘nature’ was something outside them” — William Morris

Quantum Plants

Thank you Cliff. I read the first few articles on this topic in Nature a while back and they convinced me  that quantum phenomena can be present in all kinds of systems, some of which are much bigger than you might expect. It's just that you need to become quite subtle to see them. In this case, laser pulses.
