It means even on the lower levels of life, there is a profound consciousness or awareness that bonds all things together. The Soluna Medicinal Gardens, found in San Pellegrino, Italy, produce some of the highest quality homeopathic spagyric remedies in the world - The Solunates. Back home, entitled to the GI Bill of Rights, Carlson spent many hours in the University of Minnesota library, studying plant physiology.
Please note: If you are not familiar with the idea of nature spirits (?devas?), I strongly suggest that before reading this note you read ?Excerpts from To Speak with Angels ??a tight summary and compilation of what I found most pivotal in Dorothy Maclean?s (1980) autobiography telling the story of why and how she learned to communicate with the plant spirits (which she came to call Devas ) at the Findhorn Gardens in Scotland.
By way of beginning, I suppose this story should commence with a remarkable experience that happened, as a retired professor now living on the Hawaiian ?garden island? of Kauai, when I was fortunate to find a lovely retreat ?hermitage? cottage in a region of high intensity spiritual energy?the Kapahi district surrounded by Kahuna Road, immediately below the sacred mountain of Makaleha.
At first I didn?t give this energy any particular notice, other than to make a mental note to visit the nursery soon, so as to see what is happening there.
Steven "Stevie Wonder" Wonderful-Hardaway is a freak of nature of the most fantastic variety: a man who, though crippled from irreperable blackness, found remarkable success in the music industry.
Stevie Wonder was born Little Stevie Wonder in 1950, to Caucasian parents Tony Wonderful and Lula Mae Hardaway.
His parents tried to make the best of the bad situation by propelling Little Stevie into the field of comedy at an early age, in hopes that he become the next Bill Cosby or Redd Foxx.
In the '70s, Stevie was a hotter hit than Miranda July, which is really just a silly comparison. Motown head Berry Gordy, hearing of the performance, signed the black boy as a novelty act and forced him to ape the style of Ray Charles, that other successful black pianist. Consumers thought the association was being hammered in a bit too hard, and sales subsequently suffered. The deeper darkness around Stevie's eyeball area begat more than hilarious slapstick antics involving tripped-over ottomans, as the musician began songwriting with greater clarity than ever before. Though an abstract discourse on the importance of libraries in America for 8 out of 9 tracks, Talkin' Books included future radio staple "Superstition," catapulting the album to multiplatinum status. He struggled for some time, first attempting to recoup his losses via playing bar mitzvahs and hosting an ill-fated game show, before the moment of clarity revealed itself before his perfectly functioning eyes. Luckily for Wonder, the smooth inoffensive quiet storm of adult contemporary R&B was a commercial juggernaut in the soft-focus 1980s. Wonder's critical relevance never recovered from Plants, but his Golden Era releases still resonate around the globe.

All told, Wonder has 22 Grammys and over fifty charting singles, with ten hitting number one.
Published in 1973, The Secret Life of Plants was written by Peter Tompkins and Christopher Bird.
It was the basis for the 1979 documentary of the same name, with a soundtrack especially recorded by Stevie Wonder. Struck by the idea that certain sound frequencies might help a plant breathe better and absorb more nutrients, he experimented with various frequencies until, with the help of an audio engineer, he found one range that was consonant with the early morning bird chirping that helps plants open wider their stomata, or mouth-like pores. One dealing with nature spirits (?devas?) and their capacity to help human concerns?phenomena that are part of the mythologies of most traditional cultures, but which are dismissed by modern day scientists as ?mere? superstition, even though considerable evidence exists that they can be real. To get to the cottage, I had to drive by a nursery called ?Growing Greens??a place that totally got my attention because, before even getting within sight of the nursery, I could always discern a very large and intense energy surrounding the nursery?an energy that I could only associate with the type of nature spirits called plant devas by the people at Findhorn Gardens in North Scotland. Owing to his being born six weeks premature, the blood vessels in the dermis layer of his skin did not have ample time to fully develop. While his standup act wasn't a smashing success, as the eighteen-month-old could barely stand (let alone perform comedy), Little Stevie accidentally discovered his virtuosity for the piano during a Jerry Lewis-style Ray Charles impression.
He released album after album of envelope-pushing funky music, incorporating conscious themes into dance-ready soul tunes, utilizing new musical technology in ways unseen since Milton Babbitt's sultry affair with synthesizers.
By eliminating his pesky blanched sclera from the eyeball equation, the wonderglasses granted Stevie an incorruptible pair of ebony eyes to match his darker shade of skin, releasing the ultimate essence of pure black soul in the process. He followed it up with the even more successful Innertubin', an introspective album inspired by a near-fatal manatee collision Wonder experienced while floating down the Missouri River.
The public began to credit the sunglasses, not Stevie, for his prodigious gifts, and paranoia subsequently mounted. Wonder's post-Golden era releases recouped the losses of Plants quickly, tapping into the vast markets of saxophone aficionados, corny uncles, and the coveted "Menopause Belt." The evolution of Wonder's sound and shift in target audience opened the mantle of Black King of Soul to younger artists such as Prince and Michael Jackson, though the latter would have trouble maintaining that title for several reasons.
He plays exclusively at weddings, in white rhinestone-encrusted tuxedos, many times giving half-hour toasts to couples he knows little to nothing about.
It is described as “A fascinating account of the physical, emotional, and spiritual relations between plants and man.” Essentially, the subject of the book is the idea that plants may be sentient, despite their lack of a nervous system and a brain. In Korea as an enlisted soldier he was obliged to watch, impotently, a starving Korean mother lay the legs of her small child beneath the rear wheel of an army truck: crushed legs created an authentic cripple, entitled to a family-saving food subsidy.
During dry conditions, the stomata close to prevent a wilting plant from drying out completely.

Something that totally got my attention, and made it imperative that I connect with the nursery for more than a cursory visit. They quickly shattered, sending waves of color-altering melatonin throughout the bloodstream, transforming Little Stevie into a fully black child. By the age of four, Little Stevie was already overcoming his second heroin addiction and third wife, and though he was not physically capable of siring twelve illegitimate children as Charles had, his parents picked up the slack where Little Stevie dropped off.
He attempted to rectify this with a blowtorch and some permanent marker, but a compromise was reached over a darker shade of sunglasses. The decision to embrace his negroid ailment paid dividends, and his career entered into its classic "Void Era," so-called for its literally darker tone and abyssal lack of abysmal output, beginning with 1972's Talkin' Books. Though the album reached higher ground, Wonder did not climax until 1976's Songs in the Key of Life.
In fear that he might lose his talents the instant the shades slipped, Wonder refused to remove his glasses for even a second, even stapling the ends to his temples while he slept. This sentience is observed primarily through changes in the plant’s conductivity, as through a polygraph, as pioneered by Cleve Backster. This came as a small surprise to Judkins and Hardaway, whose mailman was also Black; this misunderstanding created some strife in Little Stevie's childhood. Unfortunately, these protective measures backfired when a tawdry rumor began circulating: because he was now never seen without the sunglasses, people began to suspect that Stevie was blind. The petunias spilling from your window box, the maple tree shading your patio, the oil you use to saute your onions, and yes, your onions, too—all from seeds. Instead of desperately trying to preserve his youth with forced sexuality and a series of poorly advised groupie corrals, a la The Rolling Stones, Wonder embraced his advancing age by embracing the musical maturity that came along with it: he became a mediocre adult contemporary artist.
In the ground, the Egyptian Walking Onion plant produces a small onion which can be harvested.
