Never Underestimate the Intelligence of Trees
By Brandon Keim
Posted January 12, 2021
Consider a forest: One notices the trunks, of course, and the canopy. If a few roots project artfully above the soil and fallen leaves, one notices those too, but with little thought for a matrix that may spread as deep and wide as the branches above. Fungi don’t register at all except for a sprinkling of mushrooms; those are regarded in isolation, rather than as the fruiting tips of a vast underground lattice intertwined with those roots. The world beneath the earth is as rich as the one above.
For the past two decades, Suzanne Simard, a professor in the Department of Forest & Conservation at the University of British Columbia, has studied that unappreciated underworld. Her specialty is mycorrhizae: the symbiotic unions of fungi and root long known to help plants absorb nutrients from soil. Beginning with landmark experiments describing how carbon flowed between paper birch and Douglas fir trees, Simard found that mycorrhizae didn’t just connect trees to the earth, but to each other as well.
Simard went on to show how mycorrhizae-linked trees form networks, with individuals she dubbed Mother Trees at the center of communities that are in turn linked to one another, exchanging nutrients and water in a literally pulsing web that includes not only trees but all of a forest’s life. These insights had profound implications for our understanding of forest ecology—but that was just the start. More…
Are You Energy Sensitive? 6 Telling Signs
by Andrea Schulman
Posted January 7, 2021
As you’ve probably noticed before, there is a range in our sensory abilities. Some people can see very well, others not very well at all. Some have excellent hearing, while others are deaf. The same applies to energy sensitivity, or as they call it, your “sixth sense.” Are you energy sensitive?
When you break down reality, everything is made up of one thing, and that is vibrational energy. Some people are very aware of the energy that surrounds them, and they can tell when energy is high and when it is low. They easily sense “good” and “bad” vibes. Other people, not so much.
As I am energy sensitive and work with other energy sensitive people, here are a few signs I see time and again. Not all energy sensitive folks will carry each of these traits, but if you carry a few of them, you are probably quite sensitive to vibrational energy. More…
Redeeming the Black Pill
by Charles Eisenstein
Posted January 3, 2021
Earlier I used the term the “Black Pill.” Nihilism, of course, is no mere philosophical position, but the intellectual expression of a psychological state of despair. In fact, this despair is always latent in modern society, because (1) its reigning reductionism renders the universe into a meaningless scribble of atoms and void; (2) its reigning theory of life tells us we are here to survive and reproduce; (3) its reigning economics directs our creative energies toward unfulfilling work and mindless consumption, and (4) its dominant social patterns cut us off from nature, community, place, and the experience of belonging.
For a while, rapid increases in wealth and dazzling technical achievements kept the despair at bay. But it was there all along, a gnawing void at the heart of the ideology of progress. It was there all along, an inner poverty mirroring the destitution progress had wreaked upon other cultures and beings. It was there all along, our own shadow that followed us as we raced toward a Utopia ever just at the horizon. Now as the glamour of progress dissolves, as our exhaustion mounts, and as we face the sobering realization that the horizon grows no closer no matter how fast we run, despair overtakes us at last.

I Refuse to be Microchipped
By Fred Dodson
Posted January 10, 2021
If current trends continue, within the next 20 years, almost everyone will be microchipped and dependent on electronics for their survival. Unless we start counter-acting on it now.
There are numerous reasons I won’t allow myself to get microchipped or implanted. Nor will I allow all of my data to be stored in one place. Nor will I make all of my buying and selling dependent on one device or on electronics. If someone pulls the plug, where does all the money go? Having all activities, purchases, sales, movements stored and tracked in one place makes a person exploitable, controllable and hopelessly dependent. There is nothing old-fashioned about not wanting to be a slave to technology. That’s reason number one.
Reason number two is more metaphysical: Metals and electronics interfere with my spiritual energy-field. As if it’s not enough to be surrounded by laptops, cell phones and broadcasting towers at all times almost everywhere in the world, you won’t connect my body to electronic devices! It’s not going to happen. More…
