What Plants Talk About

Originally posted on The Toltec Path:

They don’t have eyes or ears but they can find their own food. They lack a brain but some scientists think that they can collaborate, communicate and even wage war. From nurturing their young to eavesdropping on their neighbors, it seems plants are doing and saying quite a bit. We just need to listen. ~ What Plants Talk About – PBS Documentary

This is such an amazing documentary! They discuss how tests have confirmed that tree/plant systems create hubs of awareness and recognize family members. Plants are able to integrate and organize information without a brain or nervous system. They can shape-shift and transform in order to attract different pollinators.

The Heart of Synchronicity Is In The Bag

People have asked the question if synchronicity exists if no one is there to observe it. I wondered if the family members who were noticing the coincidence of the gifts were also searching for meaning behind the coincidence. Is a synchronistic event still synchronistic if we don’t see the meaning? This question made me take another look at the Fibonacci series. I had to know if the Attractor had a purpose. Was there more to the gifts than simply coincidence?

Dead elephants, plagues, and rats: Why the sixth extinction is bad for you and everyone you know

Hey, remember the dinosaurs? Yeah, neither. All it took was one massive asteroid, and all the dinos were wiped off the face of the planet. Well, there’s a new asteroid in town: us.

New research published in the journal Science lays out the scope of the destruction we’ve wrought — and suggests that it’s going to come back to bite us. Not only will the so-called sixth extinction make that wildlife safari you’ve always wanted to take a lot less interesting, it could increase disease and make it even harder to feed our own ever-growing population. Happy weekend!

The Leader of the Unfree World

How large is America’s prison problem? More than 2.4 million people are behind bars in the United States today, either awaiting trial or serving a sentence. That’s more than the combined population of 15 states, all but three U.S. cities, and the U.S. armed forces. They’re scattered throughout a constellation of 102 federal prisons, 1,719 state prisons, 2,259 juvenile facilities, 3,283 local jails, and many more military, immigration, territorial, and Indian Country facilities.Compared to the rest of the world, these numbers are staggering.
