Janis Miglavs, while seeking Truth in the Hyland Vineyard near McMinnville, Oregon, is oblivious to the ancient ghost wolves flying overhead. Obviously, this is a simple case when Truth was within sight, yet he didn't see it.
The idea didn't sound crazy at 3:04 this morning.
Yesterday I read that plants can distinguish predator insects from pollinators. OK. But get this, plants also give off electrical impulses in response to threats.
To test this, a polygraph expert and former CIA interrogation specialist, hooked up a tropical dracaena–a common household plant–to a polygraph. Then he threatened the plant with a flame. (No water boarding here.) The interrogator reported that the plant displayed the same electrical signals that people do when they lie. Then he tested other plants–from lettuce to bananas. The results were similar.
Initial conclusions for wine lovers:
1) Check out how the vineyard manager and workers treat the vines before buying the wine.
2) Then on a personal note, the next time you walk past a vineyard, don't yell at the vines lest you ruin the future wine.
But wait, there's more.
While researching for my Vineyard Light book, I found that vines and humans have a long history together on earth:
• 130 to 200 million years ago Scientists estimate that Vitis vines first appeared on earth. (That's some serious old vine.)
• 6000 BC Radiocarbon dating of grape pips found near Tbilsi, Geogria. (For Rush Limbau fans, that's not a state in the USA.)
• Ancient Mediterranean cultures believed that the vine sprang from the blood of humans who had fought against the gods. (These predate the Christian Eucharist.)
• 5400-5000 BC Dating of resinated wine in a jar found in northwestern Iran.
• 4100 BC The oldest known complete wine producing facility in a cave outside the Armenian village of Areni.
• 2150-2000 BC The first written accounts of grapes and wine found in the Epic of Gilgamesh.
So if vineyards have coexisted with humans for at least 8000 years, and the CIA-trained interrogator proved that plants respond to stimuli, do the vines then pass on their stimulated responses through their DNA? Is there a collective pool of vineyard DNA response? Is there a collective vineyard conscousness? Have they been watching us humans (with amusement) all those 8000 plus years? Do they have a collective DNA knowledge of the human race?
Finally, can you taste this collective vineyard knowledge/consciousness?
