           The Secret Life of Plants (released 1978)
The thesis of this visually stunning documentary feature is that plants have feelings, too, and that they have a variety of ways of expressing them. Based on the best-selling book by Peter Topkins and Christopher Bird, the custom of talking to one's houseplants is strongly recommended by the filmmakers.  Though scientific in tone, the film does not air the opposing view advocated by, perhaps, a majority of scientists. One highlight of the film is its original musical score by Stevie Wonder.                                                ~ Clarke Fountain, All Movie Guide

The Book

The Secret Life of Plants - The Book
Excerpt from: Chapter 2
Plants Can Read Your Mind
   Two young Californian students of humanistic psychology and Hindu philosophy, Randall Fontes and Robert Swanson, have now pursued Vogel's quarry into unbeaten ground.  Using sophisticated equipment  lent them by the IBM researcher, they have made a series of discoveries so surprising that despite their youth they have been granted funds and equipment by established universities to further probe the mysteries of plant communication.
    Fontes' and Swanson's first discovery came virtually by accident when one noticed that the other's yawning was being picked up by a plant in  the form of energy surges. Instead of ignoring the phenomenon as improbable, the two students followed up the clue remembering that in ancient Hindu texts an exaggerated yawn was considered a means by which a tired person could be recharged with vivifying shakhti, a postulated energy filling the universe.
    With the help of Dr. Norman Goldstein, a professor of biology at State University in Hayward, California, Fontes went on to discover an electrical potential traveling from cell to cell in the ivy philodendron which gives a strong indication of the presence of a hitherto unsuspected simple nervous system.

Randall Fontes, M.A.
worked with the twice nominated physicist for the Nobel Prize 
Dr. Harold E. Puthoff and
Russell Targ at Stanford Research Institute (SRI International): 

CIA-Initiated U.S. Government
program to investigate paranormal abilities; code name "Star Gate"

When Dr. Harold Puthoff and Russell Targ began research at SRI they applied for and received a research grant  to probe plant sensitivity. They brought Randall Fontes to Stanford Research Institute (SRI) to conduct Plant and Human Consciousness Research, also known as Primary Perception or the Backster Effect.

Randall worked with Remote Viewers Ingo Swann, Hella Hammid and Pat Price.

One day Randall asked Ingo Swann if he could affect a plant by concentrating on it. Ingo looked at the plant and the plant monitoring equipment showed no change. Ingo went to the office 2 doors down the hall to think about it.

After a few minutes the pen on the strip chart recorder became very active and was pegging. Then the voice of Ingo came from down the hall. He yelled "I think I got it"! 

The product of this work culminated in a final report "Organic Biofield Sensor" by H. E. Puthoff and R. Fontes dated November 1975. 

Randall Fontes is currently conducting research on the effects of light and sound on human consciousness. He plans to soon reintroduce plants as an Organic Biofield Sensor.

Journey into The Play of Light

The Play of Light is about the Beauty of Light, of Sound and of Form. As each of these is deeply resonant with the other, the underlying unity that they share is revealed within their dance; and can be realized through direct experience. Within this experience, the mind becomes still and spontaneous Meditation arises. I have developed this technique over a period of 45 years, and this is as effortless and joyful a path into meditation as I am aware of.
