»Samalla kun mieleeni tuli polttaa yksi kasvin lehdistä, se reagoi hätkähdyttävästi. Kojeen piirrin heilahti puolelta toiselle. Vaikutti siltä kuin kasvi olisi lukenut ajatukseni.»
Tässä kirjassa kerrotaan monista vastaavista koetuloksista, jotka osoittavat, että kasvit pystyvät omalla tavallaan kommunikoimaan ihmisten kanssa. Kirjan luettuanne ette enää suhtaudu ikkunalaudalla olevaan kukkaanne samalla tavoin kuin aikaisemmin. Ette katso sitä enää vain tunnottomana kasvuautomaattina vaan olentona, jolla on oma persoonallisuutensa ja omat sielulliset erikoispiirteensä. Kokeet ovat osoittaneet, ettei kasvit pystyvät tuntemaan kipua, että ne voivat olla peIoissaan tai jopa nauttia musiikista. Kun iukee mitä kaikkea tiedemiehet ovat saaneet selville kasvien elämästä mm. rikostutkimuksessa käytetyn valheenpaljastustekniikan avulla alkaa uskoa tai ainakin tempautuu mukaan tähän mielikuvitukselliseen seikkailuun. Kirja on saavuttanut valtavan myyntimenestyksen mm. USA:ssa ja Saksassa.

Secrets they were when I picked up this book for the first time (in January 1988), and secrets they have remained. Tompkins covers the known history of the Great Pyramid (including all the major pyramidologists--Greaves, Taylor, Smyth, Petrie--and their theories), but what is known unfortunately doesn't amount to much. The fact is that we have no idea how the Pyramid was built; records of its construction have not survived. That's why there are so many books and hypotheses. This particular book relies heavily on a complicated geometric theory by Prof. Livio Stecchini (which Stecchini himself outlines in the appendix), but this primarily concerns the measurements the Egyptians used and fails to address the elephant in the room. How was the construction of the Great Pyramid accomplished? How, in terms of sheer physical scale, can it be accounted for? No, we don't have to fall back on the ancient astronauts catch-all, but we do need a better theory than any thus far proposed. That the Pyramid exists, and that we still cannot explain it, means our understanding of human civilization is fundamentally incomplete. It's not just an interesting ancient ruin: it may be the key to the entire puzzle. Astronomer Richard Proctor (basing his conclusion on the work of the effectively forgotten Greek philosopher Proclus) argued that the Pyramid was an observatory, and there's evidence to suggest that he was right, but consider what this means: the Egyptians not only practiced astronomy, but had the wherewithal to erect a massive, flawlessly engineered monument to that practice. What happened to the technology that enabled an achievement such as the Great Pyramid? How can it have been lost so completely?

Full of stunning black and white photographs, engravings and drawings, Secrets of the Great Pyramid makes a beautiful coffee table book if you can find a copy in near-mint condition. Sadly, there isn't a lot of substance in the text itself.

> LES TOURS D’ÉNERGIE — Tel est le titre du chapitre vingt et un du livre " La vie secrète du sol " de Christopher Birdet et Peter Tompkins paru en 1990 aux éditions Robert Laffont et qui nous propose de sortir des sentiers battus. Ce chapitre sur les tours d’énergie nous ramène aux siècles passés et ces tours semblent être les témoins de connaissances extraordinaires oubliées au fil du temps.

While there is some good information in this book, for the most part this book gives plant people a bad name. Yes, plants communicate, but why harm plants while studying this?

If you love plants, this book will likely make you cringe hearing about the cruel scientific experiments on plants. And if you don't love plants, this book may make you think that all of us who love plants are a bit crazy.
