Plants Use Sound Waves to Communicate With Each Other

A study published in BMC Ecology shows that plants can communicate with each other using “nano-mechanical” sound waves. They use these signals to encourage each other to grow, and to keep track of where spatially another plant may need room. The sound vibrations signal the other plant where they are and to grow accordingly.

Scientists at the University of Western Australia found that even when they isolated two “paired” plants from light, scent and touch the plants were still able to communicate with each other. When they planted a chili pepper next to a basil plant, and then separated them from all known methods of plant interaction, the chili plant still grew as if it knew the basil was there.

Cleve Baxter, the polygraph scientist who did controversial experiments with plants, showed that plants could sense human intentions and communicate. Gardeners have known for centuries that certain plant pairings, such as basil and tomato, encourage plant growth and health. Now researchers hope that these new findings will help scientists increase crop yields in the future.

Research Mapping Emotions Shows Strong Mind-Body Connection

Love makes us warm all over, and now scientists are creating body maps to prove it. A team of scientists in Finland has used a topographical self-reported method to reveal the effects that different emotional states have on bodily sensations. After five experiments and over 700 participants from Finland, Sweden and Taiwan, who reported where on their bodies they felt different emotions , the scientists discovered surprising consistencies. Their research findings were published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences

If Plants Are Consciousness, What Happens When We Eat Them?

| by Cheryl Shainmark

Not too long ago The New York Times ran an article, Sedate a Plant, and It Seems to Lose Consciousness. Is It Conscious? The new evidence that plants have a type of “conscious,” joins a host of other research indicating that plants are intelligent, understand where they are in space, respond to threats and obstacles, and communicate with each other. We’ve known for years that plants grow faster and lusher when you play the right music or speak nicely to them, but now there is evidence that plants form memories. Does that mean they remember that you were kind to them? And what does it mean now to eat them? What, if any, are the moral or ethical implications?

Remote Viewing: Perceiving Information Non-Locally

Remote viewing (RV) is the practice of seeking impressions about a distant or unseen target using subjective means, in particular, extra-sensory perception (ESP) or “sensing with mind”. While ancient texts and shamanic traditions have emphasized this ability for thousands of years, it is only in the last century that modern science began to take it seriously. Since the 1970’s researchers such as Russell Targ (video) have published data that corroborates perceiving information in non-local ways. In the 1990’s it was popularized with books about US military experiments called “The Stargate Project.”

Merlian News Podcast Interview with Dr. Dean Radin: Parts 1 & 2

| by Merlian News

Dr. Dean Radin served as a scientist on a highly classified program investigating psi phenomena for the U.S. government. His book The Conscious Universe won the 1997 Book Award from The Scientific and Medical Network, and it has been translated into eight languages. The majority of Dr. Radin’s professional career has focused on experimentally probing the far reaches of human consciousness, primarily intuition, gut feelings and psi phenomena. Dr. Radin has also appeared in the movie What The Bleep Do We Know?!- Down The Rabbit Hole

New Thinking Allowed: Dr. Jeffrey Mishlove & Parapsychology

A few years ago, Jeffrey Mishlove, PhD. restarted his groundbreaking YouTube show with a new name, “New Thinking Allowed” (video). Dr. Mishlove, who ran the original series from 1986 to 2002, interviewed more than 200 leading intellectuals, including Joseph Campbell, Jean Houston, Terence McKenna, Michael Talbot, and more. In his introduction to the new series, he explains his motivation for starting anew, as a desire to “leave a legacy of the best thinking out there for those who desire to understand who they are and what their potential is.”

Klaus Heinemann On Orbs & Entities

| by Hazel Courtney

‘If you change your TV channel, you switch to different frequencies, which contain different information. It’s illogical to think that what we cannot see is not real, because the human eye is able to receive only a very narrow part of the light spectrum. Many animals can see in spectrums invisible to us.’.. As Professor Heinemann summarised: ‘Research into orbs is only in its infancy. But the photographs of these spirit emanations offer evidence – as close to scientific proof as we have ever come – in proving the existence of spiritual reality.’

UFO Coverage Hits the Mainstream

This week The New York Times reported that two Navy pilots saw “unidentified flying objects” almost daily throughout 2014 into 2015. While the government is not saying that these objects are extraterrestrial in origin, neither do they have an alternative explanation. According to the report, “the objects persisted, showing up at 30,000 feet, 20,000 feet, even sea level. They could accelerate, slow down, and then hit hypersonic speeds.”

Increased Hope for Alzheimer’s Patients

As the American population ages and the peak of the baby boomer generation move into their 70s, there has been a huge increase in the number of people diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease. Fortunately, there is a growing body of research into cause, early diagnosis and treatment, that shows great promise.
