The Plant Kingdom

Excerpts from Part Three: The Plant Kingdom --- Intelligence Rediscovered

Look deep into nature, and then you will understand everything better.

Albert Einstein

Next time you stand in a forest, imagine the extraordinary communication network hidden just below your feet that alerts the trees to whether you are a threat to them or not. For thousands of years tribal cultures intuitively sensed that trees could ‘talk’ to each other, yet it has only been in the past few years that scientists became sensitive enough to create experiments documenting the existence and sophistication of a language spoken between trees within forest communities.

Forest communities are “a highly evolved system that works {with} structures that are very similar to our brain,” Professor Suzanne Simard told Scientific American, in a 2021 interview. “They are not brains, yet they have all the characteristics of intelligence: the behaviors, the responses, the perceptions, the learning, the archiving of memory. And what is being sent through those networks are chemicals like glutamate, which is an amino acid that also serves as a neurotransmitter in our brain. I call the system ‘intelligent’ because it is the most analogous word that I can find in the English language to describe what I am seeing.”

Those of you who saw the 2009 movie, Avatar, might recall how all of the lifeforms on the forest moon were connected and communicating through a Bio-Electromagnetic system emanating from the roots of trees. Whether the film’s director, James Cameron, took inspiration from real-life plant science to create his fictional world, I don’t know, but aspects of the plant intelligence he depicted exists on this planet. It’s a really good exercise to enter parks containing many different tree species to listen to the trees and learn to talk to them using instinctive and mental telepathy (listening to trees is instinctive telepathy, whereas talking to trees is mental telepathy.)

There is also science evidence that trees and some plants emit sounds at a frequency of 220 hertz, a level that humans cannot hear without the use of technology. Scientists don’t know yet what these sounds communicate and more research needs to be done to decipher this communication system, but it may be more evidence for a collective intelligence at work. We cannot judge this communication because it exists in realities we have not identified yet. The gamma wave hertz, however, vitalizes and revitalizes all living beings, which is something that we can measure, though it’s not present in plants all of the time, just certain periods of the day as with rapid eye movement sleep in humans.

Do trees and plants possess what we might call as humans a ‘conscious life’? No one knows for certain, yet the evidence is beginning to feel compelling.

  • They communally trade and share food and resources.
  • Warn each other about climate threats and danger from insects and humans.
  • Experience and react to pain.
  • Exchange information about healing from injury, such as recovery from fire damage.
  • Recognize the presence of their offspring and their own species.
  • Store memories about past events.
  • And they demonstrate both a sense of smell and a sense of taste to identify other life. 

What do all of these traits, taken together, sound like to you?!

Throughout evolution the intelligence in all species evolved to maintain a harmonic existence and coexistence. I call this balance struck the Law of Harmonic Intelligent Existence and Coexistence! Different organisms and ecosystems all function on separate frequency spectra so everything isn’t constantly reactive, but rather achieves a resonant harmony. This goes back to the original blueprint of the species, the original pure tone in the bio-photon electromagnetic blueprint of the species.

Every lifeform seems to have its own program channel on the planetary broadcast station of frequencies and human scientists are finally learning how to tune in to these various channels and frequencies to learn what had previously only been recognized and accessed by the highly intuitive among us.

In evolution it started with survival of the fittest. Now as evolution advances, it is becoming survival of the most conscious (or as I like to say, survival of the most conscious conscious.)

The Prayer of the Tree

An old Portugese prayer posted at Tranekær Castle, a popular tourist destination on a lake in Denmark, where trees from all over the world are planted and each tree has a story attached:

You who pass by and would raise your hand
against me, hearken ere you harm me,
I am the heat of your hearth on the cold
winter night, the friendly shade screening
you from summer sun.
And my fruits are refreshing draughts
quenching your thirst as you journey on.
I am the beam that holds your house, the
board of your table, the bed on which you
lie, the timber that builds your boat.
I am the handle of your hoe, the door of your
homestead, the wood of your cradle,
the shell of your last resting place.
I am the gift of God and the friend of man,
You who pass by, listen to my prayer and
Harm me not.
