Cleve Backster is the founder of the Backster Research Foundation and currently teaches at the Backster School of Lie-Detection. He is also on the teaching faculty at the California Institute for Human Science and serves on the advisory board at the Institute of HeartMath.
Cleve is an international speaker on the subject of Biocommunication and has been a professional observer of human psycho-physiological tracings since 1948. Since 1966, Cleve has conducted extensive research related to observed electrical responses in plant life and at a cellular level in other living organisms. His research into what has been called “The Backster Effect” has attracted world-wide attention.
International speaker on Biocommunication, Cleve Backster returned to the show to share details of his years of research related to electrical responses in plant life, human cells and living foods. In various situations, these substances have shown reactions on such tests as the Galvanic Skin Response when hooked up with electrodes, he said.
Cleve Backster presented an overview of his 37 years of research related to electrical responses in plant life and at a cellular level in other living organisms. Even the tiniest living organisms such as bacteria can demonstrate reactions to their environments in a kind of "primary perception" that comes before the five basic senses, he said.
