Are you a plant? Here’s the way to become an artist!

Plants communicate

Even though we are only realizing it now, plants have been communicating in many ways, with awareness and intentionality, for millions of years. Plants have learned to communicate accurately and precisely in many ways because of their sessile nature, which does not include escape as a defense strategy!

Plant Neurobiology

Today, a new science is finally clarifying the incredible potentialities that have been expressed by Plants over millions of years of evolution (even though they appear, to our superficial gaze, motionless and silent beings). This Science is Plant Neurobiology, represented in Italy by Prof. Stefano Mancuso, Director of the L.I.N.V. International Laboratory of Plant Neurobiology. He is also the author of many books in which he describes the ongoing research of Plant Intelligence.

Communication between plants

Plants communicate through the production of B-VOC (Biogenic Volatile Organic Compounds), which are thousands of aromatics, smells, essences, etc. produced and perceived by the roots, leaves, trunk, and flowers in the form of Aromatic Compounds, Essential Oils, Resins, etc. These BVOC are released into the air and transported even thousands of kilometers away, allowing plants to acquire and disseminate useful and valuable information.

Plants communicate through a root system via hormones and diffusible compounds that are carried by very small fungi (Micorrize) that connect the roots of many Plants in a forest, creating a sort of Wood Wide Web, equivalent to a Social Internet Network.

 

Plants produce electromagnetic fields

Plants also communicate through the variation of Electromagnetic Fields produced by the Neurobiological Activity that takes place between the roots and leaves. These Electromagnetic Fields are very dynamic, constantly changing and adapting to everything that happens in the environment, soil and wind in response to variations in sunlight, air movement, the presence and quality of water, and also in response to interactions with animals or people. These variations are perceived by insects, bacteria, fungi, animals and other plants, creating a social fabric from which we humans, risk being excluded.

 

Can plants communicate through music?

Plant Neurobiology has taught us how to detect, in real time, these subtle variations in Electromagnetic Field, which can be processed by specific software and transformed into Variations of Musical Notes. This allows plants to communicate with us humans in an intelligent way! Since the 1980s, the research group referred to as: Solera’s “Music of The Plants”, has collected thousands of sound testimonies from Trees, Plants and Vegetable Organisms, creating Plant Music Concerts, deepening the research in communication skills of the plant world.

A.I.Me.F. (Italian Association of Forestry Medicine) and Prof. Stefano Mancuso, Director of L.I.N.V. (International Laboratory of Plant Neurobiology) create an artistic group in 2018, thanks to a Project shared at the Master “Vegetal Future” at the University of Florence. They gave birth to “The Plant Players“, which literally gave a Voice to Plants!

 

How plant communication is translated

Thanks to the Music of the Plants devices and the team, Italian Association of Forestry Medicine, hundreds of “Musical Scores” have been recorded directly from the Plants. These scores have been generated from Plants in excellent health, during experiences of interaction with Experts in Forestry Medicine, Experts in Plant Osteopathy, Botany and Herbal Medicine, in Certified and Healthy Places (such as the Pimpinella Garden in Bologna, or Villa Bardini in Florence), transmitting to us humans all the Wellness that each Plant can offer.

The musical tracks are elaborated by means of special sensors able to detect the variations of the electromagnetic field produced from the roots in the soil to the leaves on the foliage of the plants. These signals are immediately transduced, by means of special algorithms and software, in a sound format, pre-setting only the scale, the timbre and the execution times. The application of the sensors is absolutely non-invasive and non-traumatic for the Plant. The Music can be immediately received thanks to a special amplifier and can be simultaneously recorded in real time on MIDI track by means of software and appropriate digital instrumentation.

 

Plants have Intellectual Properties and Royalties!

Thanks to agreements with CDBABY and SIAE, the Plants have Intellectual Properties and Royalties!

The recorded Musical Track is particular and specific, since, on one hand, it follows the electromagnetic variations linked to the physiological mechanisms of the given Plant via their xylem flow, phloem flow, root pressure, evapotranspiration, communication mechanisms, hormonal production and BVOC. This sequence is recognizable as a Fundamental Track present in all the Plants of a given species (usually a sequence of 4 or 5 specific notes). On the other hand, the elaborated Musical Track is also connected to individual variations linked to the surrounding environment and to the context with which, at a specific time and in a specific place, while the Plant is interacting with wind, air, sun, animals, insects, other plants, human beings, etc. These individual variations change continuously, even in the same Plant, “recorded” at different times.

 

Plants can learn to play

We have noticed a Learning Process in Plants. If they are connected to the instrument for the first time, many Plants seem to express themselves in a more “mechanical” way and with wide latencies and pauses, compared to the same Plants that, after some time, return “to make music”. The second or third time they experience more artistic expressiveness, interact with the environment in a more explicit way and seem to have learned how to better manage this possibility of communication.

Plants listen to music

In fact, Plant Neurobiology has shown that Plants are able to listen to music, sounds and vibrations. This listening ability is already used in many contexts to improve the quality of food production and the quantity of the harvest. We have also verified many times how the Plants connected to the sensors and made able to “perceive” the music they produce, quickly learn to interact with musicians who produce sounds or songs next to them with various instruments. The plants can manage the rhythms, pauses and times in a way that appears completely congruous, conscious and sensitive. This incredible experience can be witnessed by participating in one of the Plant Music Concerts realized by A.I.Me.F. in many locations in Italy, including the Garden of Pimpinella (Marzabotto, BO) info@aimef.net.

 

Plants can produce “Work of Ingenuity”.

The musical track elaborated by a Vegetable Organism is, therefore, something unique and unrepeatable, which can be considered the same as a “work of ingenuity” and therefore subject to the same rules for the protection of Intellectual Rights. Law 633/1941 protects “works of the intellect of a creative nature that belong to literature, music […] whatever their mode or form of expression”.

 

What are the requirements for the Protection of Copyright in a Musical Work?

  • The first requirement is the “creative character”, which refers to a “personal and individual expression of an Opera” (Cass. 28/11/2011, n. 25173, in Foro It., 2012, I, 74.1). The Work, in order to be Protected, must contain in itself the expression of the “personality of its author”.
  • The second requirement is “novelty”. A Work must be considered a novelty to be protected. It cannot voluntarily reproduce, in a direct or strongly evocative way, a creation of another.
  • A third requirement is “originality”. An Original work represents the result of the Author’s individual creation.

The law considers Original (and therefore subject to Copyright Protection) work that has been created independently by an Author, as a new and original expression of the author’s personality that contains a minimum amount of unrepeatable creativity. Each of these characteristics have been demonstrated by A.I.Me.F. and The Plants Players Group, through the Musical Recordings of the Song of Plants, allowing the Plants to become a new entity with Intellectual Rights!

 

The serious job of a Plant-artist

From every Location certified as Suitable for Forestry Medicine, The Plant Players make:

  • Digital Music Album, called The Musical Gardens with 15 to 20 tracks
  • The Album contains Songs of all kinds of Plant Organisms: Flowers in soil or in a vase, Plants, Grass, Large or small trees, Roots, etc.
  • During Recordings, the Plants are treated with care by E.O.V. Plant Osteopathy Experts and Forestry Medicine Experts.
  • The scores are registered on the International System of Protection of Digital Music CD Baby (cdbaby.com).
  • The Canto delle Piante is made available on the A.I.Me.F. website, in the Canto delle Piante App and through Digital Music Managers, including Spotify, Apple Music, iTunes, Deezer and many others!
  • For each Plant there is an Information Sheet that highlights specific characteristics, the information on Therapeutic Potential in the treatment of diseases and rebalancing of Emotions, and the historical, subtle, symbolic and magical aspects of each Plant.

 

Live concert of a Plant-artist

Geolocalization is given for each “Scores Authoring Plant”, so that she can be visited by Fans who have received well-being and healing by listening to her specific song, to meet her, thank her and listen to her “Live”!

– For each “Scores Authoring Plant”, there is a Backstage through Photographs and Video stages which share the artistic-scientific-therapeutic experience of recording the Song of the Plant.

– For each “Scores Authoring Plant”, the complete score is transcribed in PDF with notations and execution times, made available on the website and in the APP.

In this way, from the Digital Music Servers, the App, or the A.I.Me.F. website, anyone who wishes can listen to a Song from their favorite or therapeutic Plant can obtain benefits and promote their health!

 

Plants are selling music tracks

Those who wish to purchase an entire piece of music (lasting from 3 to 10 minutes) and acquire the rights to use the Scores for their own arrangements, can do so through dedicated Sites. It is possible to acquire every single piece for a donation of 0,99 € (discounts are possible for the acquisition of an entire Album). Each donation produces Royalties, which are provided by A.I.Me.F. directly to the Authorship of the track, through the representative  of the “Curator”, who will be responsible for protecting the health of the Authorship of the track, or to encourage the dissemination of plants of the same species, thus complying with the biological objective of every living being: to stay healthy and disseminate their genome.

Your Donation is a small and important step to change the way you think about Plants and so you will change the whole World!

 

Do you want to register the musical score of your Plant?

If you are interested in registering a Song from the Plants in your Garden, please contact info@igiardinimusicali.it!

After cataloging the score and acquiring the Intellectual Rights in the name of the Plants, you can receive a Digital Album from Your Musical Garden for individual and group listening to promote Meditation and Health!

A big change is taking place: Covid-19, humans and nature

We are experiencing a great moment of change. Life is change. Nature changes constantly, as do we and our body. Plants know the law of change, adaptability and cooperation, but we cannot say the same for human beings.

 

For some months now we have been experiencing conditions of forced change. A change imposed by a virus, by something external to our will, which perhaps facilitates a process that, on our own, due to laziness and comfort we would not have chosen for ourselves. 

 

These moments that off set our usual balance change many things-structures, priorities, and even values. What before seemed obvious, now is not. What has always seemed important to us, may now be futile. If before on our scale of values health, self-sufficiency, solidarity were not at the top, now perhaps they are conquering a new position. Will all these current world events be useful?

Right now it’s up to us to choose to see the glass half full or half empty.

 

At the time of this blog’s publication we are in the season of Spring, and thanks to the quarantine we are locked up at home with the possibility to observe on the internet various testimonies of how nature is breathing in a new way.

 

“When sea traffic is significantly reduced,” explains biologist Valentina Braccia, “sea creatures, especially cetaceans, benefit from it. Noise pollution caused by maritime activities, together with chemical pollution, represents one of the main threats to dolphins and whales. “Maritime traffic in the Mediterranean continues to rise.” From 2002 to today – underlined Braccia – it has almost doubled. With a growth rate of 3/4% per year”. This emergency that has stopped many human activities is good – at least – for the ecosystem.

The water of the canals of Venice have become so clear that schools of fish can be observed with the naked eye. Even dolphins have returned to the silent ports of Trieste and Cagliari in Italy, just wild boars have been seen in the center of Sassari.

In the deserted streets of Milan hares have been spotted reclaiming possession of their natural habitat. People are not seen in the city, the streets are empty and silence reigns, broken occasionally by ambulance sirens and few sporadic cars. 

 

Meanwhile, satellite images also show a significant drop in pollution levels during this quarantine time. A new analysis, released by BBC conducted by researchers from Columbia University of New York, confirms that air pollution levels have dropped in areas of the world where the spread of Covid-19 is greatest, including China to Northern Italy.

Satellite photos of NASA and the European Space Agency (ESA) have already shown this several times. Both China and Italy have lost much of their gray coat, made of fine dust, carbon dioxide and nitrogen dioxide.

Due to the aviation blockade and millions of people working from home, emissions are expected to drop in other countries of the world that are now more affected by the virus.

Although people working from home are likely to result in greater use of home heating and electricity, the containment of commuters and the general slowdown of the economy will likely have a positive impact on emissions.

 

Nature is always here and responds to human needs. One positive side to this situation has been the decrease in pollution for her to respond in gratitude, “here I am, I am here, take care of me too”. Who knows, perhaps everyone will come out of this Coronavirus emergency improved, finally aware of the universal value of health, both for mankind and for nature too.

All Consciousness Matters - Yoga ion nature

All Consciousness Matters

Our Earth is an intelligent organism composed of beautifully diverse life forms and various elements, each with a unique consciousness. 

 

On this Earth, life forms are meant to live in symbiosis with one another. When all is in balance and respected, plants, animals, humans, the elements and even crystals are all meant to serve each other for all of our greatest healing and evolution. 

 

The diversity of the consciousness among all forms on Earth is part of the complexity and beauty of this planet. This means that every form is a teacher and a student, even inanimate forms. We all have much to learn from each other because each being and elements is so different from another. 

 

There is a tendency for many humans to believe that we are a superior species because we express ourselves in very obvious and loud ways to us, when in reality all forms are expressing themselves. And all forms play an integral role in the existence of this planet. In reality, another way to measure intelligence is by examining which beings are sensitive, receptive and able to interpret all of the information presenting in every moment. 

 

With time, technology will continue to be developed that allows us to better connect with and understand other forms. Just as humans will return to a state of greater sensitivity to all beings and things such as when we lived closer to Nature. This was a time when a greater symbiosis between all things existed and this is the goal of the creation of the new Earth. 

 

The good news is we are returning to this way of interconnected conscious cohabitation with all that is with a more modern twist. We can celebrate the break throughs that have already come to fruition with one example including the research and inventions by Damanhur, our spiritual community who over the past decades has developed a device that measures the change in resistance of plants in real-time, similar to the lie detector test, and then this data is converted to midi notes, which produces sounds and ultimately music. 

 

Much research has been done on plant consciousness and behavior using this technology, which has allowed for us to better understand plants at a much deeper level including that they too feel pain and they too are social beings. 

 

If you’d like to get to know your plants at home more deeply, The Music of the Plants device is a convenient and entertaining way to connect to the consciousness of your plants and listen to their self expression. May open your mind and heart to receive how they wish to communicate with you.

Plants feel and have a Consciousness too

It’s interesting when people choose to become vegan for the sake of animal rights. “But what about plants?” I often think. 

 

Much of the decision is based upon not hurting the animals and that they should have a say in their life. The same for plants too!  

 

For those who communicate with animals in a deep way, we can receive the same level of response from a plant if you choose to do so and you know how to listen. We will go deep into this in another article.

 

For many years, studies have said that plants do not have a nervous system or neural receptors and because of this concluded that plants don’t feel. But this is absolutely not true too.

 

Plants also feel and are conscious to pain. They are also highly intelligent and know how to regulate themselves for the sake of protecting themselves against predators. There have been several studies that have demonstrated this. 

 

Humans tend to be quite ego-centric and often use their logic to extrapolate the explanation for all things. And recent evidence suggests otherwise–that even though plants don’t have a nervous system that indeed they can feel.

 

Plants know when they are in Danger of being harmed

There exists technology, such as the music of the plants device that can measure the change in resistance in plants, which can then be converted to data. Plants can also be hooked up to devices that measure this resistance, like the lie detector test, in order to witness and measure their responses to the environment.

 

If you do a google search of “plants connected to the lie detector test,” you’ll find that back in the 1960s Cleve Backster performed numerous experiments with plants that revealed through the lie detector test that they do indeed register pain the moment it is inflicted onto them. 

 

What’s even more fascinating is that they show a response even when someone thinks about harming them, and plants have a similar fear response as humans do when he took matches out of the drawer. The plants also displayed the spikes on the lie detector test when others were harmed too hence demonstrating their empathy and high level of consciousness. 

 

Plants feel it the moment they are hurt

In a recent study in 2018 at The University of Wisconsin-Madison, it was demonstrated that plants have a nervous system-like response when they are harmed. Using technology and genetic modification they were able to measure and show that when a caterpillar bit a leaf, the plant released glutamate which is a neurotransmitter that humans also release in a moment of feeling pain. In the plant this resulted in a cascade of calcium release, which is similar to a nerve signal in humans. This process then signaled the plant to release its defense hormones that can be toxic to those wanting to eat the plant. 

 

Plants respond to Pain and take measures to protect themselves

There have been several studies done with deer and trees in areas were the deer tend to go overboard and eat too much of any one tree. They found that plants release an increased level of tannins which are bitter and toxic to the deer so that they stop eating the plant. 

 

This is fascinating because it reveals that plants are much smarter and well adapted than most people give them credit for. If we think about our planet, however, the evidence is there. Plants tend to overgrow humans and man-made structures and even outlive humans too. 

 

Perhaps now you’ll think twice whenever you come in close contact with a plant, mistaking it for “just” a plant.
