The Tree-Huggers Are Right!

Measuring electricity in trees

Ever wonder about the phrase “Tree Hugger”?
I believe that it comes from the practice of “Tree meditation”. If you stand next to a large tree in a calm environment and place the palms of your hands about an inch from the trunk, under ideal conditions you can actually feel the energy of the tree.
Now, according to this article, scientists are detecting measurable amounts of electricity in trees:

“Researchers at the University of Washington have discovered nature’s alternative to the power outlet: living trees.

That’s right, living trees. UW engineers Babak Parviz and Brian Otis have invented an electrical device that can be plugged directly into any tree for power. “As far as we know this is the first peer-reviewed paper of someone powering something entirely by sticking electrodes into a tree,” said Parviz.
The research was based upon a breakthrough study last year out of MIT, when scientists found that plants generate a voltage of up to 200 millivolts when one electrode is placed in a plant and the other in the surrounding soil. Those researchers are already designing devices which act as forest sensors powered entirely by this new method. But until now, no one has applied these findings to the development of tree power.”

Now, this “tree energy” has been known for thousands of years by people that use fresh tree branches to dowse or “water witch”. I have been using dowsing rods to find buried water and electrical lines for over ten years. Usually I just take wire and bend a pair of “L” shaped rods and hold them like a pair of pistols. As you pass over a water or electric source they will react like crazy, spinning in your hands. With practice you can get really good at this. I myself have successfully located three well sites; when they were dug, they all produced plenty of water. Historically, this is why you see stage magicians use “magic wands”.
The use of freshly cut tree branches, usually a forked branch held in the hands, also works really well. I had a long talk with a well driller about this when he dug a well at a site I had witched. His explanation is this: everything has an electrical charge in it. Take underground water for example; the water has charged particles in it, and as it flows over minerals in the ground which also have charged particles an electrical exchange can be felt through the metal rods or the living energy of the tree branch.
It’s very likely that primitive man used to be able to feel these sensations without tools like metal rods or tree branches, allowing them to locate water or deposits of ore. Now, our world is blanketed with electric energy, radio and cell phone disturbance that confuses our senses.
Try a little experiment on your own – bend some wire rods and look for your water lines, or simply find a nice big tree and make friends!

  • Covid Dreams
    Covid Dreams This rambling post is simply the wanderings of my mind as I have worked through Covid. If you don’t care to read it, fine. I’m just working through some thoughts, and believe me, I’ve had a full week of isolation to think about shit. First, let me say I have (until last week) […]
  • Ray Crowe: Bigfoot Behavior
    While taking another break from reading dystopian books on the state-of-the-world, I picked up my copy of “Bigfoot Behavior”, by Ray Crowe. Let me begin by saying that I met Mr. Crowe and spoke with him many times. I bought armloads of books at his tiny used book store in the St. John’s neighborhood on […]
  • Larceny Games; Sports Gambling, Game Fixing And The FBI
    Let me start by saying that I played a lot of sports in High School, some I liked, some I didn’t. When the coaches kept chasing me down I agreed to try Football, even though I didn’t give a shit about Football. One of my good friends was a star on the team. He decided […]
  • Review: “The Socratic Method” – By Farnsworth
    Review: The Socratic Method By Ward Farnsworth Many months ago, I decided I needed to get into some classic books that I had never read in school. One such book was “The Republic” by Plato. Well, that didn’t last long. I was overwhelmed by the archaic language and ancient Greek names. I can be pretty […]
  • Reviews: Sea Monsters & Sasquatch
    Regular readers might know that I can’t just do dystopian analysis of current events all the time; sometimes I have to get into something completely different. With regard to that, I have reviewed a few Bigfoot books, and picked up some classic novels as well as books on philosophy. Today we take a look at […]
