The Secret Life of Plants (Full Film)

Rare documentary from 1979 taken from the book of the same name. Even on the lower levels of life, there is a profound consciousness or awareness that bonds all things together. A fascinating account of the physical, emotional, and spiritual relations between plants and man. Essentially, the subject of the film is the idea that plants may be sentient, despite their lack of a nervous system and a brain. This sentience is observed primarily through changes in the plant's conductivity, as through a polygraph, as pioneered by Cleve Backster. The book also contains a summary of Goethe's theory of plant metamorphosis.

I would suggest also turning the sound down and listening to music while watching the images, such as the 1997 classix Fat of the Land by Prodigy

Shine on Star Children!! We are not alone.


I can teach you
A secret geometry
Beyond skin where
Everythis is a version
Of everythat, where
We live and lie
Beside ourselves,
And beyond what
Is called love,
That joins the stars
With our shadows,
Where desire spreads,
Light becomes truth.
