Plants Talk To Each Other

"All forms of life communicate through chemical emissions, frequency vibrations, and in some cases, ultrasound. The study of plant communication is still in its infancy, but scientists now know that plants do communicate with one another above and below the ground. Human to plant communication is still considered impossible by most people, but there have been some case studies that show humans can pick up vibrations from plants, and translate them into words. I don’t claim to be one of those people, but I don’t doubt the fact that some people can pick up some sort of signals from plants." Gabriel Krabb: Black Orchid Night

The Orchid Is More Than We Think: Excerpt From Black Orchid Night

“Somehow orchids managed to spread their beauty over six continents. They have successfully found a home in every conceivable terrestrial habitat. They earned respect in the botany world not only for their delicate beauty, but also for being the most diverse family of flowering plants. There are more than 25,000 species of orchids in 880 genres. The secret to their success in a word is sex. Not what we term normal sex. It is more like really weird sex. The Bucket Orchid is no exception. This pesky flower captures unsuspecting bees and uses them for its rather ingenious sexual ritual.

The Australian hammer orchids are also cruel beauties. The wingless female wasps that become sexual prey have no idea what’s in store for them. The flightless female wasp waits for a male wasp at the top of the stem. The male will pick her up and mate with her in mid-air. The hammer orchid effectively mimics the female wasp, and excites the unsuspecting male wasp to the point of ejaculation. The dupe male wasp is utterly fooled. He is so convinced that the orchid is a female wasp that he even extends his genital claspers into the orchid. The sexual scam is a double victory for the orchid. The natural deceit makes the female wasp reproduce asexually. That sexual behavior produces only male wasps. Female wasps are the result of actual wasp-to-wasp mating. When the male wastes his sperm on the orchid, more females become asexual, which means there are more male wasps to pollinate the hammer orchid.”

Soul Expansion: An Excerpt From Black Orchid Night

“You made an agreement with certain souls. Those souls project basic units of consciousness — we call them individuals — into our material reality at the same time your soul performs that creative act. The individuals involved learn lessons from each other and help each other experience mass events. You must realize we are experiencing a mass physical dream in one point in time, and other individuals from other souls experience the same dream in other points in time. But there are many dreams for souls to experience, and we creatively choose which souls to experience them with. The fact that they play different roles in these dreams is the result of individual choices. If they played the same role, there would be no expansion of the soul.” Buy the Here: http://www.amazon.com/Black-Orchid-Night-Novel-Idea-ebook/dp/B0190PUIFC
