How Plants Help Each Other Grow By Near-Telepathic Communication

How Plants Help Each Other Grow By Near-Telepathic Communication
Michael Forrester, Prevent DiseaseWaking Times Plants have scientifically been show to draw alternative sources of energy from other plants. Plants influence each other in many ways and they communicate through “nanomechanical oscillations” vibrations on the tiniest atomic or molecular scale or as close as you can get to telepathic communication. Members of Professor Dr. Olaf Kruse’s biological research team have previously shown that green algae not only engages in photosynthesis, but also has an alternative source of energy: it can draw it from other plants. His research findings were released in the online journal Nature Communications. Other research published last year, showed that young corn roots made clicking sounds, and that when suspended in water they would lean towards sounds made in the same frequency range (about 220 Hz). Germination rates were fairly low when the seeds were grown on their own, lower when grown in the presence of fennel (as expected). What Can Humans Learn?

Earth's Internet & Natural Networking: Mycorrhizal Fungi run the Largest Mining Operation in the World Up to 85% of plants depend on fungi to survive. Plants and fungi depend on each other for nutrient cycling and water absorption "If you sift the mineral particles from conifer forest soil, wash them, and examine them under a microscope, you will discover a startling detail: tiny tunnels, three to ten micrometers across" "The tunnels curve and branch and sometimes more than one pierces the same particle. What could have created these microscopic boreholes?" When Dreams “Bleed” Through I had one of the stranger experiences of my life this morning, and that’s saying something, given my unusual life! David’s alarm went off at 4:45 as usual, and, since we had both gone to bed early and slept through the night, I felt fully rested, too. After he got out of bed, I stretched my back a bit and fully expected to join him in the kitchen a few minutes later. The next thing I knew, I was in the middle of a lucid dream, wandering around my garden in the middle of snowy January. At first, everything seemed similar enough to “reality” that my dream self thought I was still awake and just thinking about my garden.

Biodynamic Organic Farming - What is it? Share by Shauna Willetts – Eco 18 Organic, pesticide free, GMO free and parabens. These are some common terms heard, or seen on a day-to-day basis, but what about the term “biodynamic organic farming”? 16 Of The Most Magnificent Trees In The World How do I love thee, tree? Let me count the ways; you change carbon dioxide into the oxygen we breathe, you sequester carbon, and you provide shelter for countless critters. There are many reasons for which we should all be tree-hugging hippies, but within the scope of this article, all we’ll focus on is how amazing some of them look. Granted, not all of these amazing beautiful trees are trees (the Wisteria is a vine, Rhododendrons are shrubs, and bamboo technically belongs to the grass family), but we’ll give them a pass because they are amazing, huge and beautiful.

Subversion Without Violence Bill Mollison once said, “I teach self-reliance, the world’s most subversive practice. I teach people how to grow their own food, which is shockingly subversive. So, yes, it’s seditious. But it’s peaceful sedition.” Applying design to growing makes for good permaculture. 10 Steps to Starting a Community Garden In Vancouver, developers discovered that turning their vacant lots into community gardens while they waited for their next project to be ready could save them hundreds of thousands of dollars in city taxes. Putting a garden on a commercially zoned site allows it to be reclassified as public park or garden, resulting in an 80% tax saving — even if it is known that the garden is temporary. In one downtown property where a hotel parking lot was converted to an urban farm, the property owner is saving $132,000 a year in taxes. Given the realities of real estate land values in cities, this policy at least rewards developers for setting up gardens and managing some of them — however temporarily.

Plants Exhibit The Same Senses As Humans And See, Touch, Smell, Hear and Even Taste By: Daniel Chamovitz, Director of the Manna Center for Plant Biosciences at Tel Aviv University In Israel, Guest Contributor Have you ever wondered what the grass under your feet feels, what an apple tree smells, or a marigold sees? Plants stimulate our senses constantly, but most of us never consider them as sensory beings too. Susun Weed, Herbalist Amazonian shamanism is, among other things, a form of herbal medicine. People who focus on the healing and transformative powers of ayahuasca may sometimes overlook the sheer size of the shamanic pharmacopoeia and the role that plant medicines play in healing. But to understand curanderismo in the Amazon, we have to understand these healing plants — their selection, preparation, indications, and application.
