The Plants Respond; and Death and Awakening Summary

In the chapter "The plants respond," Jensen writes about a plant that shows a response on a lie detector test when the experimenter thought about burning one of the plant's leaves. Jensen also talks about an experiment with brine shrimp in which these shrimp also reacted to the stimuli of a human. Jensen writes that these experiments have not gotten far in gaining credibility in the scientific community because scientists do not want to damage their credibility and thus their ability to get grants to assist with their research.

In the chapter "Death and Awakening," Jensen writes about the first time his bees died. He also writes of his struggle with Crohn's Disease and the healing, physical and emotional, that he found during this time in his life.
