Currently reading Stephen Buhner’s book The Lost Language of Plants. While he is truly “hippy dippy mystical” he explores some truly fascinating aspects of biology and life. The complex communication and intereactions even at the simple level of bacteria are staggering.
There is a wisdom to the holistic approach that the western reductionist mindset misses entirely. Buhner seems to take this to the entire Gaia spiritual plane, which is a level I do not share with him. Still I am really enjoying this book.
