Is Thought Evident in Plants?
Who would have thought that a plant could be a witness to a crime - and even testify against the perpetrator? Well, it is true! In the early 1970's experiments were done on ordinary houseplants, by researchers who connected a polygraph machine to a plant.
An interesting thing happened - the researchers discovered that their plants actually recognized their owners, they responded to being talked to and praised, and they also fainted when exposed to negative thoughts or words, or violence directed at them. One experiment involved two plants in a room and an anonymous person was instructed to go into the room and violently destroy one of the plants. Later, the untouched "witness" plant was connected to the polygraph machine and the researchers had several people, one at a time, come into the room where the plant was hooked up to the polygraph machine. When the guilty person entered the room the needle on the machine went crazy!
Plants do have some kind of thought process, and they react to love and hate, and physical violence. But thought also has another vital purpose; evolution.
An example of thought and evolution being connected is the African elephant. The matriarch of the herd has ivory tusks that are highly prized by hunters and demand a large price tag on the black market. The survival and well being of the rest of the herd depends on her maturity and experience to lead them across the African plains each season. In the last fifty years there has been a trend in the female elephant not developing tusks; and a BBC News report dated September 25, 1998 reads, Elephants 'ditch tusks' to survive. "Experts?say elephants are losing their tusks as a rapid and effective evolutionary response to escape slaughter by ruthless and resourceful poachers who kill elephants for their ivory trophies." We don't know what or where our thought process comes from, but perhaps it is as tiny as the cell itself. It has always been easier to see the results of thought in animals and to believe that only they and us could possibly have this attribute, but we have to be able to think outside the paradigms of ordinary everyday life.
God created everything, animate and inanimate. We are all connected, plants, animals, and even the inanimate objects in our universe. It all came from the same "mixture" that Jesus spoke about in Pistis Sophia and the Bible. It all has "life". The problem seems to be that we don't define "life" to encompass all.

June 2005: Weather Forecasts for Vacationers
If Johannes Kepler, the renowned 17th century astronomer and discoverer of the planetary laws of motion, could speak from the heavenlies, he might have a few words of wisdom to share with the National Weather Service. Although Kepler's name is not normally associated with meteorology, he was quite the weather forecaster in his day.
UAV Blimps Powered By Hydro-Electric Motors Using Hydro and Fluid Dynamic Theory
I believe it is possible to design a pilot-less hydro-electric blimp which would have a propulsion system which never requires fuel and would be based on a Perpetual Motion Machine which uses fluid dynamics in a hydro-electric. First the shape of this thing would be similar to the new shopping mall shade cover on the Las Vegas Strip.
Hyper Sound Wave Emissions to Quiet Helicopters
It is possible to disrupt the sound waves coming from a flying helicopter and re-direct those sound waves up. This would mean on a day with no clouds you would not be able to hear the helicopter from the ground.
Aerodynamics and Hydrodynamics of the Human Body, Birds, and Boeing
The aerodynamics of the human body are very interesting indeed. This may sound somewhat funny, because human beings can't fly, however our desire to fly has enabled us to adapt and innovate to achieve the same purpose.
If we are having difficulty getting recruits into the army; lets hire some robots? General Patton's famous quote goes "?an army moves on it's stomach" and if you look at the needs of humans to complete a mission they require much in the way of logistical support, where as robots do not, sure some, but much less and we are not just talking about chaplains, psyche councilors, medics, recruiters, human resource personnel and cooks. Any component under the Joint Chiefs is full of a complexity of needs.
N400 Brain Wave to Assist in Learning and in Performance
In any important task you need to stay alert and in some professions someone could lose their life ifyou are not staying heads up or cause a serious accident where someone else has to pay with theirs. Not good, so what is the solution here? Here is a thought on learning, safety, brain waves and winning.
Drought Worsened in Some States in 2004; 2005 will be very telling
The drought of the West appears to be the worst in over 500 years. This is what the scientists at the U.
Stem Cells (The Truth)
The much publicized stem cell research debate focusing on moral arguments is off target with the goal of real progress in the direction of human physiological benefits potential. No matter what side of this issue you come down on, practical considerations ultimately trump this emotionally clouded subject.
Controls - The Building Blocks of Automation
As man learns to make machines that no longer rely on animal or human power, he finds that he has to develop some means to manage and control them. Powerful machines let loosed by themselves will create havoc and destruction.
Movin On: Taking Transhumanism in Stride
Back in the seventies, we watched "The Six Million Dollar Man", a popular television show about a trained agent who was critically injured and given the gift of technology--bionic legs and super vision.Lee Majors portrayed a man capable of leaping tall buildings and scanning the landscape at night.
Crop Circles and Genetic Knowledge
The crop circle enigma is not always a hoax. I am not able to see how someone could do a massive design overnight in the cases where the plants have their stems broken from within.
Building an Ice House on Mars
There is ice at the Martian Poles, one of the poles has water ice in abundance. Such an ice over region could easily be converted into a habitat for a Martian Colony of human explorers.
Tactile Pressure Sensors for Future Robotics
Scientists and Robotic Researchers are attempting to design human type personal assistance robots. As they work to develop algorithms, which most resemble the thought processes of the human brain others are attempting to make them more life like thru human behavioral techniques of mirroring and facial features.
Positive Effects of Carbon Dioxide for Plant Growth
Many articles have been written about the negative effects of carbon dioxide. Sick Building Syndrome, loss of concentration due to high levels of carbon dioxide, asphyxiation in breweries or wine cellars, all these things spring to mind when we hear the magic phrase carbon dioxide.
Acoustic Transducers and Light Waves for VSTOL, a Concept
Is it possible to use many acoustic transducers underneath an aircraft in a crisscross fashion to make the air much thicker. Almost like a platform that a VSTOL aircraft using low pressure could use to push off of? Although the amount of energy to be required to do this might be substantial; it seems to be possible.
Debunking the Debunker
In History and Science:INSPIRATIONAL COMMENTS:"Everybody was glad that I was living; but as I lay there thinking about the wonderful place where I had been and all that I had seen, I was very sad; for it seemed to me that everybody ought to know about it, but I was afraid to tell, because I knew that nobody would believe me. - John G.
Troubleshooting Pump Problems the Easy Way
In any problem analysis, we have to specify the problem, check whether there is any deviation from the normal condition, identify the possible causes, evaluate the possible causes and then confirm the true cause.Pumps or other machinery will give tell tale signs when they are not working properly.
Bio-Rhythm Disruption Frequency Identifier for Human Intentions
It appears we have found many identifiers for Bio-Metrics to identify people. In this new age of International Terrorism with bad guys trying to get Pilot's Licenses, HazMat Driver's Licenses, get onto airlines, step onto buses and sneak over our borders we need a fool proof system.
America and its Collision Course
Energy ESP #7 - America and its Collision CourseCrude oil explodes through $46.50 as the problems are growing -It's bigger than Iraq, bigger than Bin Laden and even bigger thanthe next election.
We Have Come Along Way in Our Exploitation of Transportation
We sure have come along way since the horse and buggy or the first Model T that left the assembly line. We have attempted to build unbelievable transportation items and prototypes for instance; the Spouse Goose, jet powered bullet trains, under water autonomous vehicles and those X-Planes.
