I agree with AliceD. This question should not be closed as "personal medical question".

comment Identify ~6-7mm long green creature
Yep, I know that feeling! This is all good! Thanks for the extra info. I personally have no idea what it could be but I am not a good naturalist!

comment Identify ~6-7mm long green creature
Welcome to Biology.SE. Can you please try to add some information. For example: Where do you live? What size are those? Can you tel us more about their behaviour? Are the browns things alive or is food or is it just stain on your light bulb?

comment Can plants feel pain?
You suggest to define pain as any signal of having impaired tissue. This seems like a perfectly valid definition to me. It seems a bit counter-intuitive but it is valid. I'd suggest to restrict your last paragraph to this specific discussion instead and to get rid of the term pain to say "sensing impaired tissue" instead. It might interest you to open a post on Philosophy.SE to ask for definitions of pain that would be easily apply to any living things.

comment Can plants feel pain?
I am not quite sure the close vote "primarily-opinion based" is a good fit to this specific case. I definitely meant that the whole question circles around what you mean by pain. It is like asking "is a squirrel a big animal?", it depends on what you mean by big.

comment Can plants feel pain?
Welcome to Biology.SE. The whole issue is around the definition of pain. Tell us what pain is and we'll tell whether plants do have this sensation. I am voting to close as primarily-opinion based.

comment Is there a schema for how human behavior is genetically determined?
The standard is to group any phenotypic variance such as variance in behaviour in a population as being caused by environmental or genetic variance. I don't have a good understanding about the difference between your two first points. Brain is a predisposed feature of our bodies causing a behaviour.

comment What is variation in Speciation
I never heard of the concept of anachronism in evolutionary biology and the grandfather paradox is related to time travel, so it definitely has nothing to do with evolutionary biology.

I added an UPDATE to my answer. Let me know if this answers your question.

comment Does Lucid Dreaming decrease the regenerative effect of sleep?
If you can't edit it, you could make a comment out of the answer. Those kind of comments can be very helpful.
