Feb. 21, 2013 — Flowers' methods of communicating are at least as sophisticated as any devised by an advertising agency, according to a new
study, published Feb. 21 in Science Express by researchers from the University of Bristol. However, for any advertisement to be successful, it has to
reach, and be perceived by, its target audience. The research shows for the first time that pollinators such as bumblebees are able to find and
distinguish electric signals given out by flowers.
The other day I came across the documentary called "Resonance: Beings of Frequency." It delves into how the ElectroMagneticField on earth impacts
all life, and touched on how bees and other insects as well as birds use EMF to navigate and to pollenate.
We've had massive bee die-offs, birds dropping out of the skies, many many species of butterfly now extinict...
yet some people deny that the EMF is affected enough by the "cellular grid" that now saturates EVERYTHING.
We can't just mess with the planet's innate system at will without expecting something ill to happen.. We NEED bees and birds, butterflies and
flowers in order to survive; they are the primary pollenators of our plant life, which is the absolute foundation of the food chain.
By placing electrodes in the stems of petunias, the researchers showed that when a bee lands, the flower's potential changes and remains so for
several minutes. Could this be a way by which flowers tell bees another bee has recently been visiting?
To their surprise, the researchers discovered that bumblebees can detect and distinguish between different floral electric fields.
Also, the researchers found that when bees were given a learning test, they were faster at learning the difference between two colours when electric
signals were also available.
How then do bees detect electric fields? This is not yet known, although the researchers speculate that hairy bumblebees bristle up under the
electrostatic force, just like one's hair in front of an old television screen.
The discovery of such electric detection has opened up a whole new understanding of insect perception and flower communication.
I was going to start a thread regarding that video, but the handy-dandy search engine showed me it'd been covered and summarily SHOT DOWN as woo woo
nonsense. I don't believe it IS nonsense.
"The co-evolution between flowers and bees has a long and beneficial history, so perhaps it's not entirely surprising that we are still
discovering today how remarkably sophisticated their communication is."
Humans are SO BLOODY ARROGANT. It's really sad. We're destroying the delicate balance on this lovely planet and in my opinion once humans are GONE
the planet will repair itself, much like our bodies repair themselves while we sleep.
The earth itself is "alive", and ionization is part of what keeps us all alive and well. Recent science has also established that being in contact
with the DIRT under our grass and between plants, against BARE SKIN, neutralizes the disease-causing free radicals that we absorb every day. That is
a subject for another thread, but I am really concerned that our "wifi" culture is affecting the wildlife on which we depend.
