Pyramids Power and Plants


The discovery of the effect on plants

Cleve Backster, a former interrogation and polygraph expert with the CIA, discovered that a plant demonstrate an emotional response similar to that in humans.

Whilst endeavouring to measure the rate at which water rose in a plant from the root into the leaf, Backster attached the electrodes of a modified polygraph machine to the leaves of a Dracaena house plant.

He reasoned that when the water arrived at a plant leaf, the resistance would go down and the tracing would go up. The opposite occurred. The plant showed an increase in resistance.

A study of the plant chart revealed a tracing typical of a human emotionally aroused.

He asked the question "how can a plant have emotional responses?".

Intrigued, Backster decided to try the threat to well-being principle by burning the leaf of the plant with a match.

At the instant he thought of lighting the match, there was a dramatic change in the PGR tracing of the plant.

He was several feet away from the plant and had not even lit a match and yet the pen was bouncing all over the strip chart.

Backster determined that he could avoid the possibility of human error by automating his experiments on plants. And was determined to find out how this effect came about and how it worked.

He constructed a mechanism that was programmed to kill brine shrimp on a random basis, with the timing precisely recorded by machines. No human remained on the premises.

Electrodes were attached to 3 separate plants in separate rooms and away from the area where the shrimp would be killed by automatically being dumped in scalding water.

The polygraph readings revealed that the emotional response from each plant occurred at the exact instant of the shrimp's death. Somehow the plant was reponding to the death of the shrimp.

This experiment has been repeated many times since, and the results have always been the same.

The question immediately becomes how can a plant emotionally respond unless it can feel.

How does the expression of emotions generate some yet unknown energy force to which the plant can respond?

How Pyramids Effect plant Growth.



In early experiments with Pyramid models it was noticed a significant difference in the growth rate of the experimental plant and the control plant placed outside of the pyramids.



These observations would lead one to believe that an energy force captured or generated by the Pyramid was affecting the plant. It has been observed over numerous experiments that a plant may thrive inside Pyramids while sometimes it has the opposite effect on the plant. Plants react differently to the effect of growing inside pyramid shapes.

How Pyramid Shapes Effect plant growth.

It has been found that a plant will grow faster inside cone shaped containers constructed to the same dimensions as a pyramid rather than pyramid shaped containers.

It was also found that a plant grows faster at the apex of the pyramid / cone than at the level of the Kings chamber, which is one third the distance from the base of the apex.

Plants grown inside pyramid shapes, in particular, cone shapes, have shown dramatically enhanced aromas for flowers and herbs.

With a corresponding increase in plant mass and growth rate. Seeds that are germinated inside Pyramids exhibit increased vigour and faster growth rate. How pyramids effect plants in this way is still unknown.


Experiments on plants growing inside Pyramids


Bill Schul and Ed Pettit in their book "The Secret Power of Pyramids" (Fawcet books 1975) describe numerous experiments undertaken by themselves and others that demonstrate the effect of Pyramids on plant growth.

Most of the literature on pyramids power suggests that seeds germinate faster and plants grow faster when placed within pyramids.

Max Toth and Greg Nielsen state in their book Pyramid Power Horticulturists have found that seeds which were placed inside a pyramid before planting germinate more quickly and produce a stronger healthier plant in a shorter period of time than did seeds that which had not been exposed in a pyramid.

Pyramid water and plant growth


Several experimenters have reported increased plant growth by treating water in a pyramid for a week or more before using it to water houseplants.

Others have had excellent results with tomatoes by growing them in the pyramid for two weeks before planting them outside. These particular plants far out produced an equal number of control plants.

While plants often thrive inside pyramids some times they do not.

It might be hypothesized that the reason plants do much better and occasionally worse inside pyramids or when treated by pyramid water depends upon the amount of beneficial energy present or generated.

Nor are all locations within the pyramid equal. It has been shown by researchers that the plant closest to the apex had the fastest growth rate.

This observation seemed to strengthen existing theories that energy flows up and out of the apex of the pyramid.

William Reich, who worked with particular energy fields, referred to this energy as orgone a cosmic energy that obeys functional rather than mechanical laws.

He constructed orgone accumulators known as oraccus. With these oraccus, Reich and others demonstrated the existence and effects of orgone energy. He and other researchers reported that plants grew rapidly and vigorously in oraccus. The oraccus is generally a six-sided box with all sides made of alternating layers of organic and non-organic materials. See -- Orgone Energy
