Pleasure is a complex feeling that need a complex central nervous system. In my opinion they turn to the sun only because of instinc

For me feelings is the ability to read some inputs. In humans we can read the input caused by a cut because of our nervous system. So the act of feeling is not to transmit harm, is to read the harm. There is a deformity that cause the patient to not feel pain. But he can be harm as well only because he doesn't feel doesn't meen that the body has not been damaged. The act of feeling is more like a regulator for more important processes on our body. The pain is the warning created by our body to show where is the problem.

Due to plants cadence of brain or nerves the plant can't feel

I agree plants are alive but they have no brain so do not have emotional feeling but they can feel their surroundings I believe

Plants are alive they live and they die and they reproduce. So yes they are alive.

yeah, not to say it doesn't have feelings. Usually how we know if something has feelings if you inflicted harm or some sort of thing to it. IDK. We can tell by usually the sounds they make. or the way they look.

Well, it can't speak. That doesn't mean it doesn't feel.

Of course, obviously it can't feel like humans or anything

Fealings is not a thing.

well, growing towards the sun is a good example. But they also easy sunlight so to not grow towards it would cause the plant to perish. And it's defiantly alive as it can die. And it communicates with other plants and can choose how it reacts to stimuli.

i think plants feel pleasure from the sun light , this why when they place the plant on side 90 degree from the sun , the plant will grow turning back making 90 degree angle to get the lights
love = movement

reacting to stimulus is a basic requirement of life in general, one can see that even in the most basic of bacteria. however what was really mind blowing is the complexity of our internal cells. in particular the immune system seemed to be far too variable and adaptive to be purely reactive.

a simplified and animated description of it here if your curious:

this is actually a really interesting topic because of the recent discoveries on plant behavior. They wished to see if anything would change under variables and discovered that when traumatized by being cut or attacked by imsects the other plants would know and respond by increasing their defenses.

they also know that when around plants that they are related to they know and are less competitive then unrelated plants.

also, there is the Venus fly trap and the fact that it has to have to hairs pushed in order to close it's trap to catch bigger insects.

this is a lovely topic and albeit i doubt that plants have cognitive function I do believe that they have the ability to feel certain emotions. They likely don't remember things truly, but they do react. So it would be a middle option for me (:
