Ik had het al eerder zien liggen bij een vorig bezoek aan de groothandel, opaal serpentijn, een hardere steensoort dan speksteen maar toch nog gemakkelijk te bewerken. Ook bedacht ik dat het misschien wel mooi zou worden om een aantal delen van de steen onbewerkt te laten. Nu het beeld in de lijnolie staat komt de groene kleur goed tot z’n recht en glimt de steen me tegemoet, ja het spreekt me wel aan. Dit bericht is geplaatst in Nieuws met de tags Bruin, Groen, Opaal serpentijn, Secret life of plants. In this imaginative, beautifully illustrated work the book's authors explore the possibility that plants are emotional beings, capable of experiencing pain and fear like we do.
This book is as fascinating as it is fantastical and the thought that plants are sentient beings has long interested some of our greatest thinkers. For years, we had been mystified by the Stevie Wonder album of nearly the same name, because the movie was nowhere to be found. Time-lapse photography documents the pain and joy plants experience and how they communicate it. The book was the basis for the 1979 documentary of the same name directed by Walon Green and featuring a soundtrack by Stevie Wonder, later released as Journey through the Secret Life of Plants. Stevie Wonder created the soundtrack for the documentary The Secret Life of Plants (directed by Walon Green) in 1979.
Profound conclusions were drawn with a few simple experiments: cutting his own finger (plants have a strong affinity for their owners), the death of brine shrimp in boiling water (plants care for other animals) and eating a yogurt (plants recognise lower life forms such as bacteria).


On visiting Bose's laboratory in Maida Vale, London the vegetarian playwright George Bernard Shaw was shocked by the convulsions of 'so stolid a vegetable' as the cabbage when submerged in boiling water. Now, with the power of the internet, we have discovered this fascinating unreleased and rare movie, The Secret Life of Plants, which features a mysterious soundtrack by Stevie Wonder. The book, which is generally regarded as a pseudoscientific work, discusses the alleged unusual phenomena regarding plants such as plant sentience, as well as alternative philosophy and alternative farming methods. The film made heavy use of time-lapse photography (where plants are seen growing in a few seconds, creepers reaching out to other plants and tugging on them, mushrooms and flowers popping open, etc.).
The album was released by Motown as the sequel to Wonder’s 1976 Grammy Award-winning Songs in the Key of Life.
From the release of Songs in the Key of Life through the release of Plants, Wonder had been active, actually, but only as a collaborator, working with Ramsey Lewis, the Pointer Sisters, Minnie Riperton, Syreeta, Ronnie Foster, and Michael Jackson. En zoals het zo vaak gaat kies je een steen uit waarvan je denkt dat wordt wel wat en vervolgens duurt het weken voor je eraan begint.
Onder mijn handen werd de steen opnieuw vorm gegeven , hier en daar de aanwezige vorm volgend, elders ingegeven door mijn eigen intuitie. During these experiments Backster left the laboratory and employed a randomiser so that his consciousness did not effect the results (plants can read your mind). If plants breath without lungs, move without muscles and digest food without stomachs who is to say that without a central nervous system they cannot feel? Although The Secret Life of Plants was not as well-received as Songs in the Key of Life, some critics still found it compelling.


Anticipation was so high that this release peaked at number four on the Billboard 200 and R&B album charts. Door aan een kant een stuk van de steen af te zagen werd eigenlijk al bepaalt dat het een “staand” beeld zou worden. It quickly slipped to footnote status; when Wonder’s 1972-1980 albums were reissued in 2000, it was left out of the program.
Aan de ruwe steen was moeilijk te zien welke kleur er uiteindelijk uit tevoorschijn zou komen.
Though it is dominated by synthesizer-heavy instrumental pieces with evocative titles, there is a handful of full-blown songs. The gorgeous, mostly acoustic ballad “Send One Your Love” was a Top Ten R&B single, while the joyous “Outside My Window” registered in the Top 60. Beyond that, there’s the deep classic “Come Back as a Flower,” a gently lapping, piano-led ballad featuring Syreeta on vocals. Otherwise, there are playfully oddball tracks like “Venus’ Flytrap and the Bug,” where Wonder chirps “Please don’t eat me!” through robotizing effects, and “A Seed’s a Star,” which incorporates crowd noise, a robotized monologue, and a shrieking Tata Vega over a funkier and faster version of Yellow Magic Orchestra.
The album is not for everyone, but it suited its purpose and allowed its maker an amount of creative wiggle room that few major-label artists experience.
