The moss is not propelled by a slope, the wind or the sun, but the group moves in sync.

The glacier moss balls move together across the ice. Bartholomaus compares this to a school of fish or a flock of birds.

Bartholomaus said he hopes future generations will one day "sort out these great mysteries."

Recent scientific studies show that plants physically have what is needed for consciousness.

The root system of plants contains many neurotransmitters that are also present in the human brain, including dopamine, norepinephrine, serotonin and histamine. Recent discoveries indicate that the root system of plants can grow many billions of cells at the tips of the roots that function in the same way as brain neurons. For some plants, it would result in a number of neurons that rival those of the human brain.
