I don’t really know how to start writing this article, perhaps the only sure thing I know is that I want to tell it from my heart. I will start by telling you the story that marked a before and after in my life, the story that opened me to the knowledge of the Universe. It all started the day I met the magical and wonderful world of Plants… This so enigmatic and surprising Kingdom of which I still know very little of everything it is and everything it represents.
It all started the day I met the magical and wonderful world of Plants…
I am a computer engineer and I have a great desire to go beyond what I see and what I think, my great passion is Nature and Technology, and my ideal life purpose would be to unify these two parts, or at least try!
One day the creation of a machine that works with our thinking came to my mind, integrating the laws of the Universe with all the Kingdoms of Nature, and I began to think, question and feel it more deeply:
How could it be a machine that works with all the Kingdoms of Nature?
How to make a machine that works with human thought?
Well… the answer came to me without warning and quickly like a sudden intuition: Plants are the great teachers of human intention, Of course! Those Plants, those ‘immobile’ beings of which we hardly realize their existence because apparently they ‘do not’ emit any sound, or hardly any movement… but that give everything and contribute so much to develop our mission as Humanity… Plants (when I speak of Plants I mean the entire Plant Kingdom) are the great interpreters of the human mind, they are the great teachers of our thinking (among many other things!).
Plants are the great interpreters of the human mind, they are the great teachers of our thought
I started with the readings of Cleve Backster’s experiments, verifying my point of view that Plants react to our thoughts and are connected to everything around them with an evolved perception. Cleve Backster called it “primary perception” at the cellular level. This researcher was an expert in professional polygraph techniques and a CIA agent, in 1966, and it occurred to him to connect the truth machine to the blade of a Dracaena massageana to check if it reacted to well-being/satisfaction. With his test, he discovered that it reacted to both well-being and danger stimuli just as a person does, only in this case he realized that Plants perceive the threat of the evildoer even if he is only thinking about it. This first experiment forever marked his life and he dedicated himself to looking inside this phenomenon even though it was not recognized by the scientific community. He produced exciting documented experiments showing that Plants are sensitive to the death of bacteria or to the detection of the killer of a neighboring Plant, they are also capable of memorizing repetitive events, and of course, that they can receive signals from human thought over considerable distances.
Let me go into a little more detail. As soon as this revelation came to me I began to study more research and experiments on the qualities and properties of the plant kingdom. I began to study in depth about the senses of Plants, how they perceive the environment, what their characteristics are, how they live, how they communicate with each other and with other species, and even how they communicate with us. I found different studies like those advertised by Stefano Mancuso and Paracelso.
According to the studies of Stefano Mancuso, neurobiologist at the University of Florence and founder of the International Laboratory of Plant Neurobiology, he considers that Plants are intelligent beings (as beings with the ability to solve problems) and that they possess the same senses as human beings (sight, smell, taste, touch, hearing) and 15 other additional senses that they have developed for reasons of necessity (such as the ability to accurately measure the humidity of a terrain and identify water sources despite distance, the detection of the key gravity for its growth, or detecting the magnetic fields of the place and the earth due to their influence on its growth), in short, they are capable of recognizing and measuring an immense number of chemical gradients present in the air and/or on the ground.
Stefano Mancuso and Alessandra Viola have also shown in their research that Plants communicate with each other and with animals. They sleep, memorize, and have an intelligence distributed throughout their completely interconnected organism.
Also the studies of Theophrastus Bombast of Hohenheim , better known as Paracelsus, a Swiss physician and alchemist of the 16th century, instructed me about the vision of Plants in a more mystical sense. Paracelsus never rested, constantly moving in search of universal knowledge, he wrote different books in the field of medicine, alchemy, nature and botany. He refuted that medicine was the fundamental science thanks to the complete union that exists in it between the knowledge of Nature and the art of manipulating it. His study refers to the correspondence between the outer world (‘macrocosm’) and the inner world (‘microcosm’).
These studies were decisive for me to understand the complexity of the operation of a Plant and the relationship with those around us. Empathizing with them, recognizing the difference that separates us and the close bond that unites us.
Synchronicity meant that as soon as I started to study, some friends told me about the existence of a device that allows communication with Plants through music. I could not believe it, I was facing one of the greatest discoveries of my life, which opened all my senses and consciousness by making sure that there is an infinite to discover.
This device connects to the Plants, and the machine lets read the electromagnetic wave of the plant, transforming it into musical notes. It is called the Music of the Plants (www.musicoftheplants.com) and it was born in Damanhur. Dammanhur is a spiritual community in northern Italy that began its journey more than 40 years ago. At the end of the 70s he began to investigate communication with the plant world, creating various instruments capable of perceiving electromagnetic variations on the surface of leaves and their roots, and they have ended up translating it into music, and even movement. The creators of the Music of the Plants today are dedicated to performing concerts around the world integrating a very varied orchestra between humans and different species of plants and/or trees.
Without thinking too much, I decided to start my own research with this device and delve into the study of human intention and thought through Plants, and how they affect our thoughts (observing it through their reactions), just as Cleve Backster did. with the polygraph.
Following the studies of Stefano Mancuso and Suzanne Simard, I discovered that Plants have different communication systems, they communicate with themselves (their own body), with those of their species, and with other species through electrical, hydraulic and chemical signals; at the same time they are independent and complementary systems.
Suzanne Simard’s research is very interesting, she has developed theories and conducted experiments to demonstrate how trees are able to communicate with each other. It helped to identify the concept of “mother tree“, which are the largest individuals within the forest and help younger and smaller plants by infecting them with fungi and supplying them with nutrients that it needs to grow.
She also discovered that Douglas firs supply carbon to young firs and showed that trees sent carbon to firs that descended from a specific mother tree, and did not do so to young firs that were not related to the mother tree studied.
Suzanne Simard‘s studies have provided valuable information on how trees change the structure of their roots to make room for young trees, and how there is a communication network underground, where all trees work interconnected, sending each other a lot of information and nutrients. as if a forest were a single individual.
I began to investigate how Plants react to different stimuli, to see their behavior and their reactions with the daily routine of my thoughts, my routines, my actions… I began to approach that World, unknown to me until then, with the capacity for observation and non-observation, innocence and enthusiasm. And so one day without more I realized that my perception had changed, my consciousness had opened (to more than I could imagine), they are Beings, wonderful and incredible beings with an almost infinite amount of characteristics to discover.
According to the concept of primary perception, there is a communication at the cellular level, which is a basic form of communication between all life, including bacteria and the cells that constitute the largest organisms. Therefore, it can be “primary” when compared to commonly recognized forms of perception, such as sight or touch.
Backster began by experimenting with Plants, but ended with human cells. By taking a sample of human cells in a test tube and testing remotely, he observed that the cells are in tune with the donor. In effect, he discovered that cells respond to our emotions when they are outside our body, even if they are as far as 160 kilometers (100 miles or more). When the donor experiences an emotional change, there is a coupled reaction in the cells that manifests itself electrically.
Backster went on to investigate bacteria, finding reactions similar to those of Plants. He also measured electrical activity in the eggs, finding that they too appeared to respond to the environment. Ultimately, it measured activity in human cells, such as white blood cells.
In the theories of quantum physics we find an existing phenomenon that helps to understand the concept of primary perception that is known as ‘non-locality‘.
“Non-locality” is a phenomenon predicted by quantum physics that Einstein called “ghostly action at a distance,” the idea that particles are somehow connected to each other through space.
The reaction of a pair of photons (packets of light) that are emitted from an excited atom has been shown in experiments. When experimenters change the polarity of one photon (by passing it through a filter), the polarity of the other is also affected, and the change occurs in less time than it would take light to travel from one particle to another. It implies that both particles are still linked (entangled) with information that would possibly be transmitted at speeds greater than of light.
The ‘non-locality’ implies the existence of the entanglement of particles and would become a link that lasts in time even when two or three particles are in different positions in space.
One might ask: how far does the principle of ‘non-locality’ go? Is it only involved in small particles? Or is it also involved in large systems? And if life forms could be involved with each other, what would it be like?
If the concept of ‘non-locality’ is extended to the standard of living and mind, then what has been called primary perception may be evidence that Backster’s findings show a signal that does not appear to be affected by distance or matter involved. .
One aspect that I consider important in the experiments that I carry out, and that Backster also affirmed, is that you should not look at the result of the study of the Plant (or anything else that one studies) or wait for a result to occur. While it is happening, observing it in the course blocks the responses and conditions the results by the same principle that we are talking about so far, our primary communication communicates with what is being experienced (whether we are conscious or not), in short: our expectations determine reality.
Our expectations determine reality.
Despite the fact that most of science confirms the existence of a new phenomenon by obtaining repeated results under the same conditions, the hypotheses and theories related to consciousness, and to mental phenomena, cannot be confirmed in that way because they are governed by other laws, derived from quantum laws.
According to Backster, all living things are sending out these very subtle signals, which are microvolt signals. Also according to Stefano Mancuso‘s studies, human beings “do not hear” Plants because they communicate with infra-sounds, the frequencies are very low. According to physics, everything vibrates and produces sound (the propagation of sound being the transport of energy without transport of matter, in the form of mechanical waves that propagate through an elastic solid, liquid or gaseous medium), it is one of the channels of communication at the primary level, and in energy terms, a Plant spends less energy emitting sounds than emitting chemical signals…
Therefore, I have no doubt that Plants communicate through various channels and even though we “do not hear them” we have the ability to receive this information at the level of primary perception (as the studies I have mentioned also indicate) .
Yes, Plants feel, Plants perceive, Plants think, Plants communicate… it is true that in a way different from the one we are used to, that is magic. They are capable of surrendering to us body and soul, and giving us so many things so that human beings fulfill their mission on Earth, even if so far most of us have not perceived them properly. They are Beings with a soul similar to ours, in a different body than ours, and they are waiting for us to recognize them as Brothers in this joint mission that we have on Earth.
Taking a deep dive into it, it made me really think what technology exists for. The Music of the Plants has meant for me a bridge to know that there is a World beyond, that we have at our disposal a great infinity of Plants that take care of us and that teach us, that communication with Plants is possible, but not only through an electronic or electromagnetic device (which also), but through the most perfect machine that we have custody since our birth, of which we have little developed those innate qualities that it has: our body. Through the development of our internal qualities we can discover other Worlds, another knowledge beyond traditional science, the truth why we are here on Earth, our mission as Humanity.
From the fruit of my experiments I also discovered that the perception in the Plants about our thinking is due to its own nature, the Plant Kingdom perceives time in a global and non-linear way as our mind is designed. They are able to see beyond space and time. From space, because they are an interconnected collective soul, a whisper in a specific location on Earth is echoed at the other end of the Planet, the Plant Kingdom has an active collective consciousness. And of time, because their perception of time is global, the past, the present and the future at the same time. They see the Whole, as a sphere. You have to think that the future is a case of probabilities, it is not that they predict things or events, but that among all the probabilities with the events of the present they know the nearest future.
One of my reflections after all these studies, and the brief path that I have traveled, is the deep feeling of knowing that if we are aware, accept and develop this type of communication, surely this is one of the keys to evolution. The Plants are there, watching us, taking care of us, listening to us, feeding us… in short: waiting for the day when we stop to listen to them and really start a dialogue with them.
Nowadays whenever I look at a Plant, I smile when I contemplate how was before, and seeing the Great Gift that they have given me.
I am deeply grateful, and it is an honor to share this life with them, my dearest advisers. The most precious loyal friends and Teachers. THANKS.
