Monica Gagliano—Part 2, The Conscious Lives of Plants and What They’re Telling Us

Self-actualization is a function of consciousness where the inner-self is recognized and expressed in one's life. When conducting a pea plant experiment to test associative learning, Dr. Gagliano used a classical conditioning experiment similar to the "Pavlovian Dog" experiment to reveal the pea plant was capable of projecting into the future, imagining dinner. "I was doing a process called the Deitas, a deep plant meditation, and during that time I was literally dictated this experiment. I found myself writing down notes in my diary and realized, oh my god, this is an experiment. The plants gave me details about everything." You'll never look at your house plants the same again.
