Das geheime Leben der Pflanzen : Pflanzen als Lebewesen mit Charakter und Seele und ihre Reaktionen in den physischen und emotionalen Beziehungen zum Menschen by Peter Tompkins( Book )

38 editions published between 1973 and 2014 in German and held by 103 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Durch wirklich bahnbrechende wissenschaftliche Versuche wurde inzwischen bewiesen, was Aussenseiter unter den Pflanzenforschern schon vor Jahrhunderten zu behaupten wagten: Pflanzen reagieren wie Menschen. Sie haben Gefühle und Erinnerungsvermögen, nehmen optische und akustische Eindrücke wahr und unterscheiden zwischen Harmonie und Dissonanzen. In Experimenten wurden Pflanzen an empfindliche Messgeräte angeschlossen. Diese Geräte zeigen an, dass Pflanzen erschreckt reagieren, wenn sie sich bedroht fühlen, und freudig, wenn sich ihnen ein Freund näherte. Die Entdeckung der Pflanzen als beseelte Lebewesen und ihrer physischen und emotionalen Beziehungen zum Menschen eröffnet atemberaubende Perspektiven für unser gesamtes Naturverständnis. Was wir über die>>Blumensprache<<wissen, wie ihre Bio-Signale zu verstehen sind und wie all diese revolutionierenden Erkenntnisse sich praktisch nutzen lassen, haben die Autoren in diesem Pionierwerk über die neue Wissenschaft von dem Verhalten der Pflanzen hier erstmals dargestellt.

La vida secreta de las plantas by Peter Tompkins( Book )

18 editions published between 1974 and 2017 in Spanish and held by 72 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Las plantas son seres vivos maravillosos. Son las únicas criaturas que, en medio del silencio, producen su propio alimento y, sin duda, constituyen la mayor fuente de riqueza de nuestro planeta: incluso el carbón y el petróleo fueron vida vegetal en el pasado. Los estudios y experimentos sobre la comunicación de las plantas indican que todos los seres vivos --el hombre, las plantas, la Tierra, los planetas y las estrellas-- se relacionan íntimamente entre sí: lo que le ocurre a uno de ellos afecta a los demás. "La vida secreta de las plantas" recopila una serie de logros y hallazgos relacionados con el mundo vegetal realizados por diversos investigadores, exponiendo las diferentes relaciones físicas, emocionales y espirituales que se dan entre las plantas y el hombre. A través de sus páginas descubrimos que las plantas pueden ser fiables detectores de mentiras y eficaces centinelas ecológicos, que tienen la capacidad de adaptarse a los deseos humanos e incluso de comunicarse con el hombre, que responden a la música o que tienen importantes poderes curativos. Peter Tompkins y Christopher Bird sugieren que la revolución más trascendental, aquella que podría salvar o destruir el planeta, puede venir desde nuestro jardín
