Consciousness of Plants

Cleve Backster has done some very enlightening experiments with plants. After noticing that a plant was a little droopy and needed water, he decided to try an experiment to see how long it would take for the plant to receive the benefits of the water. He attached a pair of polygraph electrodes to one of the plants and noticed an immediate reaction.

He wondered if the plant would react to a threat to its safety, and decided to try burning one of its leaves. Before he could even locate a match, the recording pen went wild. It was clear that the plant had, in some manner, perceived the threat to its safety.

Backster has also done research with vegetables. Electrodes were attached to three different kinds of fresh vegetables. Then someone chose one of the vegetables to be dropped into boiling water. The one selected registers on the graph paper a sudden upward sweep, followed abruptly by a straight line indicating ‘unconsciousness. ’ In other words, it faints. The other vegetables show no change until the first vegetable is boiled, then they respond with sympathetic agitation. Eggs also ‘faint’ when it has been mentally decided to pick them up and break them - and they register a ‘nervous’ response when another egg is actually broken nearby. Because of this response, he believes that one should notify the food in advance that it is about to be eaten, so that it can put itself into a protective and painless faint. Ancient Tibetan monks used to apologize aloud to the food before they prepared it or ate it. Perhaps this is why.

One day Backster had an appointment with a woman who wanted to observe some of his plant demonstrations. when he hooked the plants to electrodes there were no readings on the graph paper. It was as if they had fainted at the moment the woman had knocked on the door. In talking with her he discovered that her job was to collect plants and bake them in the lab to get their dry weight. The frightened plants had picked up this information and fainted at sensing danger from her. Immediately after she left, the plants began to exhibit normal patterns on the graph.

In one experiment, six police officers drew lots to determine who would be the ‘killer. ’ He then uprooted one of the two plants who had been next to one another for several months in the lab. The ‘killer’ ripped the leaves off the plant, and in other ways violently murdered it. A few hours later, five of the officers entered the room, one at a time, where the ‘witness plant’ was attached to an electrode. The plant continued to trace it's normal pattern on the chart, showing no response. But when the officer who murdered the plant's friend entered the room, the witness plant immediately reacted with a strong ‘agitation’ response.

Although plants have no nerves, they have been shown by Backster's testing to exhibit definite and sympathetic responses to the beneficent or malevolent events occurring to living plants, animals and humans in their vicinity, and at a distance. Because they lack ‘sense’ organs, their responses cannot be defined as ‘sensory impressions. ’ They must be defined as evidence of a life force field as yet unsuspected and unrecognized by orthodox scientists, but known for eons to metaphysicians.
