That's Right- Your Balky Plants May Need Pep Talk SANTA JOSE, Calif. (AP) Your plants aren't doing well you say? It could be the petu- nias simply need a pep talk, says chemist Marcel Vogel. Vogel, author, inventor and researcher with Internationa] Business Maclunes' Advanced Systems Development Division, says he has proved plants re- spond to the emotions of hu- mans. "We tram dogs and other Vogel said in an in- terview. "Has anyone thought of training In a recent 10-week course he conducted for colleagues Vogel said he scored a break- through in "contacting" plants through bioelectricity. Man emits a minute electri- cial field, as do plants because of their moving protoplasm. When man's electrical field cuts that of the plant, he said, a measurable response can re- sult. Vogel described an experi- ment in which he wired a plant to a device that measures elec- trical impulses. Vogel said when he thought intently thai he was about to burn the plant, the device showed a plant re- action. In a sense, said Vogel, it is extrasensory perception by the plant. He said he has repealed this experiment before witness- es several times. A major use of this pheno- menon, he said, would be to use plants "to catalog the ab- errations of people." Thus standard could be developed in which certain reactions mea- sured in plants indicate human mental condition, he said. What Vogel is suggesting is that a catalog of standard plant reactions to various human emotions could, for example, point to specific maladies: schizophrenia, paranoia, manic states and the like. Vogel said he is preparing a scientific paper for a technical journal on his plant experi- ments.
