You may have heard stories about organ recipients who took on personality characteristics of their organ donors as in the romantic comedy film, "Return to Me" -- but have you ever heard how scrapings of cells from a man's mouth reacted as he sat some distance away looking at pictures in a magazine? Perhaps you know that dogs can tell when their owners are coming home -- but have you ever heard that plants become excited at the exact moment that their people decide to come home? THE SECRET LIFE OF YOUR CELLS describes these and many other startling research findings of polygraph expert and consciousness researcher Cleve Backster. Cleve Backster's familiarity with lie detector equipment and curiosity about how plants would respond when hooked up to a polygraph have led him to discover some amazing facts about plants. Not only do they seem to be aware of the intentions of people from a distance, but they also can tell the difference between a person simply thinking about burning a plant leaf and actually intending to set a leaf on fire. When they are warned that cells will soon be dying in their vicinity, they do not react in alarm, but if they have no such forewarning, they react with great agitation to the unexpected deaths. What is it that allows plants -- or even cells which have been removed from a plant or human being -- to know what is happening nearby? How can simple cells appear to show some kind of primary awareness? THE SECRET LIFE OF YOUR CELLS asks many such profound questions as it describes many of Cleve Backster's fascinating experiments. If you have an open mind and a genuine desire to know what's going on in the world, you will absolutely love THE SECRET LIFE OF YOUR CELLS. Seldom has one book managed so successfully to address the non-local nature of consciousness in the form of describing very concrete experiments, nor managed so clearly to convey the significance of those experimental findings in our lives. As I read this book and mulled over the fact that all cells are aware and conscious, every moment of my life took on a fresh, new feeling of awe. Part of Backster's genius as an experimenter has been his ingenuity in devising original experiments -- and another aspect of his genius has been his ability to create experiments which are capable of testing plants and cells for their awareness of their surroundings without psychically tipping them off to the intentions of the experimenter. Backster's experiments depend upon spontaneity and real feelings (just like what happens in the real world), rather than artificial and repetitious redundancy (what most scientific researchers study). Anyone who is seriously interested in better understanding the field of consciousness research needs to read this classic book. Anyone who wishes to understand what their cells are aware of needs to read this amazing book. It will change your view of the world forever!Was this review helpful?
