This means that even lower levels of life, there is a deep consciousness or awareness that all things Bond. Published in 1973, The Secret Life of Plants was written by Peter Tompkins and Christopher Bird. It is described as “a fascinating account of the physical relationships, emotional and spiritual between plants and man.” Basically, the theme of the book is the idea that plants can be sensitive, despite their lack of a nervous system and brain. This sensitivity is seen mainly through changes in the conductivity of the ground, as through a polygraph, as pioneered by Cleve Backster.

The book also contains a summary of Goethe’s theory of the metamorphosis of plants. That said, this book is much more than just plants, but also delves deeply into topics such as aura, psychophysics, orgone, radionics, Kirlian photography, magnetism/ magnetotropism, bioelectrics, dowsing, and the history of science. It was the basis for the 1979 documentary of the same name, especially with a soundtrack recorded by Stevie Wonder.
