Food for thought

Postby SecretAgentMan on May 11th, 2013, 7:47 pm

I wanted to share this excerpt from a video documentary on studies done with plants. The first interview is Dr. Cleve Backster, the pioneer of the polygraph (lie detector test). He tells the story of how he inadvertently discovered how plants seem to be far more aware of their environments than anyone ever gave them credit for. The video then goes on to show other experiments done to validate/explore this phenomenon. The video is only 10 minutes, please consider watching it with an open mind.

The reason I wanted to share this with the forum is to help demonstrate the power that our thoughts have over our lives and our environments. Everyone is conditioned to believe that what goes on in their head does not matter one little bit to anything other than them and how they feel. The world of quantum physics and experiments such as Dr. Cleve Backster's paint a different picture though. There is a phenomenon that is little understood, but demonstrate in the laboratory, that our thoughts do indeed have an influence beyond just our own heads. Two particles like a photon, electron, proton, buckey ball, or even small diamonds can become quantum entangled by just physically contacting each other. From that moment on they are linked by some mechanism that is not measurable, but they communicate information instantly, faster than the speed of light. The communication is non-electromagnetic and cannot be screened out by a Faraday Cage. This quantum communication phenomenon has been demonstrated in human brain waves as well. This video demonstrates that all of life seems to be in a constant state of this quantum communication completely outside of our awareness. Our intentions matter though and our moods and attitudes do make a difference. Just watch the video and see for yourself.

If our thoughts impact plants in this manner, imagine how they impact us...

Weird indeed, but also profound when you consider the implications. Although the brief video here does not go into it, Dr. Cleve Backster's experiments also showed that plants and vegetables that normally seem to react in terror to being cut, cooked, or consumed calm down dramatically when people pray or mentally express gratitude for their food prior to preparation or consumption.

The lesson I hoped open minded members of the forum would take from this is not necessarily how plants feel, but more how everything we think, say, or do has an energy associated with it that directly affects our physical bodies and our physical environment. The plant experiments just highlight a scientifically measurable demonstration of how our thoughts and emotions have this affect/impact external to what goes on in our mind. It makes you consider just how much influence a negative attitude really may have on the cells, organs and tissues of your body. Indeed Dr. Cleve Backster also did experiments with living white blood cell samples taken from people and measured in the laboratory via polygraph while the host would go on about their daily life (in some cases traveling up to a few hundred miles away). The white blood cells in the lab registered strong reactions instantaneously corresponding to emotional events experienced by the host outside of the lab, as though quantum entanglement communication was taking place.

In light of the works of Dr. Cleve Backster and my own experience, I do not believe we develop illnesses by accident or at random. It more seems to me that everything in the physical manifests to address the balance of the energetic, and our intentions and attitudes have a lot to do with setting the tone for the energetic. Just my 2 cents...

I agree. In fact I believe that everything, with out exception, is the result non-physical forces. Clearly I am an idealist. :)

I saw this post a few days ago, and by "coincidence" it was literally right after I got finished reading a book on hypnosis and the power of the subconscious mind. The author gave many examples, most of which I was familiar with, but he also mentioned the experiments done by Cleve Backster, and I had never heard of him. Right before I saw this post I was thinking about all the posts I've seen here about different types of diets to try and thinking that no matter how significant the effects may be that the effect of the content of your mind (conscious and unconscious thought) is ten times more significant, and 10 times harder to change than your diet. So the "Food for thought" post caught my eye. :)

Cheers,
