A mind-bending thought was proposed by a group of researchers: If Planet Earth is living, can it have its own mind?
The team of researchers published a report where they explored this strange question in the International Journal of Astrobiology. They presented “planetary intelligence” which explained the ideas about cognition of Planet Earth.

Can Planet Earth Be Really Intelligent?
This might seem like it has come from a sci-fi movie but this concept will actually assist us in dealing with climate change and other such global issues and can even aid us to look for extraterrestrial life.
They pointed out proof that underground networks made from fungi can actually communicate with one another and form a large-scale intelligence that could profoundly alter the conditions of our Planet Earth.

One of the major species that can drive the change at this moment is humans, and looking at the plastic and climatic issues, we might be changing the balance of the environment, irrevocably.
Adam Frank, who is a professor of Physics at the University of Rochester, stated that they do not have the ability to respond, communally, in the best interest of our planet.
The group of researchers believed that a thought experiment like this can help human beings understand the impact they leave on Planet Earth and can act as a compass on how to improve it. The researchers also believed that such a thing can help us in the search for extraterrestrials.
Frank added that the technological civilization that they might ever see, or expect to see, are the ones that didn’t kill themselves and had reached the stage of “true planetary intelligence”.
He added that it was the power of this kind of thought, as it would unite what we require in order to survive the climatic crises and what might happen on any other planet, where intelligence and life had evolved.
