Cleve Backster and Plant Meditations is there a connection?

Have you ever thought about talking to plants? There is scientific evidence that we (our thoughts) are in direct communication with plants, even if they are separated from them by thick walls. I have direct experiences of similar events while conducting 'Plant Meditations'.


Cleve Backster is a polygraph expert who began his career as an Interrogation Specialist with the CIA and best known for his controversial experiments with bio-communication in plant and animal cells using a polygraph machine in the 1960's which lead to his theory of 'Primary Perception.' He is currently the director of the Backster School of Lie Detection in San Diego, California. In the 1960's he claimed to have discovered that a polygraph when attached to a plant registered a change in electrical resistance when the plant was harmed or even threatened with harm.


He argued that plants perceived human intentions, thoughts and emotions and their reactions were recorded on a polygraph this sensitivity he termed as 'Primary Perception' and published his findings in the International Journal of Parapsychology. This met with wide criticism Backsters work was inspired by the research of Sir Jagadish Chandra Bose, who claimed to have discovered that playing certain kinds of music in the area where plants grew caused them to grow faster.


His bio-communications work is most famously discussed in The Secret Life of Plants by Peter Tompkins and Christopher Bird. Backsters work is discussed in his book, titled Primary Perception published in 2003.
