Plants, Bio-Communication, & Memory

Show Archive
Date: Tuesday - March 18, 2008
Host: George Noory
Guests: Gerald Epling, Richard C. Hoagland

Scientist and researcher Gerald Epling discussed his work on plants and bio-communication. He's been able to replicate and extend the experiments of Cleve Backster, measuring the responses of one life form to another. Epling's experiments have shown that plants can respond to things that happen to other plants, as well as react to a person that is approaching them. One dracaena in particular responds more to him than other dracaenas when he enters the room, he reported. He hooks up the plants' leaves to a portable battery-operated device which measures differences in their baseline signals.

Epling shared some of his studies of neuroscience and memory. People can tune up their minds and set out to make the memories they want to have by focusing on specific things, he noted. Certain supplements can improve memory such as lecithin, and Phosphatidylserine can be beneficial "when your colors go dry," he said.

He also touched on his work with structured water. Epling compared the effect of untreated water and water that was heated in a microwave oven on seeds and potting materials. The plants that received the untreated water grew faster and healthier than the ones that received the microwaved water, he detailed.
