I can't remember the author, but its an amazing book about plants and their responses to our energy(and even *thoughts*). Its really such a good book. Pretty much an in-depth look and study about the common knowledge of talking to your plants makes them grow, etc. but way more than that.<br><br><br><br>
It really fascinated me.

i haven't read it, but i've heard a lot about it, and i've heard it's a load of nonsense.. No one's been able to reproduce the studies in it, and even the author himself refused to do so....

Fascinating. Thanks for the link. I was eager to learn about the reality surrounding the observations.<br><br><br><br>
I've always felt that all molecular life is linked energetically/spiritaully, and I also believe in alot of metaphysical theories so knowing this still doesn't convince me that plant life doesn't respond to our collective energy(but not thoughts), etc.<br><br><br><br>
What do you guys think of the plant studies involving music, the owner's attention? I might go try to google some links about those, as I'm not too informed on the actual studies.

That book is nonsense and pseudoscience. One may as well claim that your cotton shirt can read your mind.<br><br><br><br><div class="quote-container"><span>Quote:</span>

While we are all made of atoms connected as molecules, there's no such thing as "molecular life" per se. I don't know why you think energy and "spirit" are related. I'd like to see somebody explain what "spirit" is beyond a vague notion.<br><br><br><br><br><br><div class="quote-container"><span>Quote:</span>

Just to get definitions down: there's no such thing. People abuse the term the word "theory" all the time. To be a theory, an idea has to withstand withering scrutiny and be verified to the hilt. What you're perhaps talking about is a lot of Shirley Maclaine stuff that really has no evidence. We call it "wild speculation". Plants being aware of anything is barely a failed hypothesis.<br><br><br><br>
It's like that cult-promo film "What the Bleep Do We Know". It's not the least bit credible. In fact some of the scientists referenced in the film were reportedly unhappy with how their statements were distorted.<br><br><br><br><br><br><div class="quote-container"><span>Quote:</span>

Why on earth would you think this?<br><br><br><br><br><br><div class="quote-container"><span>Quote:</span>

If proven it's nothing really. Sound is just pressure peaks and troughs in a medium (air). Different types of pressure waves at varying amplitude and shape might effect plant cells.<br><br><br><br><br><br><div class="quote-container"><span>Quote:</span>

Which is why you want to look at <b>actual peer-reviewed studies</b>, not google. The net in 96% bullcrap.<br><br>
That book is the biggest screed of pseudoscience I've ever seen.

You do realize you bumped a 6 year old thread, and the OP is no longer a member, right?

I read it in grade school. (No, really, my school library had a copy.) Don't remember anything about it other than I thought it was boring and silly.
