THE SECRET LIVES OF PLANTS

There is a book that was published in 1973 entitled, “The Secret Life of Plants.” It was written by Peter Toimplins and Christopher Bird. In their book the authors talked about how plants have feelings and can react to music and other stimulus. In other words, plants are constructed much like humans in the respect that they are energy based and have their own form of a nervous system and “brain.” One of the “proofs” to their theory was auras that were emitted when plants were photographed using Kirlian photography methods. Another experiment included hooking up a plant to a polygraph with astonishing results.

Technology has advanced quite a bit since 1973, and so have the experiments with plant life. In this video, (URL Link below), scientists have recorded plants making their own music. The music they create is not always the same and is somewhat affected by attention they get from visitors.

Researchers in this video use a variation of the Wheatston Bridge, which is a device that measures the reactivity of the plants to their environment. This device also measures the plant’s capacity to learn and to communicate. The Bridge uses an electrical circuit to measure electrical resistance by balancing two legs of the bridge.

Proof once again, that ANYTHING is possible!
