Plant consciousness & Biocommunication

Research is being conducted to understand Plant consciousness & Biocommunication.

Research still is in progress, but some suggest –

Plants may not have feelings but they are indeed alive and have been described as sentient life forms that have “tropic” and “nastic” responses to stimuli. 

Plants can sense water, light, and gravity — they can even defend themselves and send signals to other plants to warn that danger is here, or near.

Plants are able to feel vibration, heat, cold, moisture, drought, and touch.

In the 1960s Cleve Backster, believed that plants can communicate with other lifeforms. He performed Polygraph, because a polygraph or ‘lie detector’ can measure electrical resistance, which would alter when the plant was watered, he attached a polygraph to one of the plant’s leaves. Backster stated that, to his immense surprise, “the tracing began to show a pattern typical of the response you get when you subject a human to emotional stimulation of short duration”.

“This is the only book by Cleve Backster himself, describing 36 years of research in biocommunication, observed electrical responses in plant life and other living organisms. All life forms have the capability of responding to one another, from plants and bacteria to foods and animal cells. Most amazing is his work with human leukocytes. These discoveries have opened up a new paradigm in science, ecology and healing.”

Abstract – Hypotheses
“The drive to survive is a biological universal. Intelligent behavior is usually recognized when individual organisms including plants, in the face of fiercely competitive or adverse, real-world circumstances, change their behavior to improve their probability of survival.”
