Primary Perception


Since 1966 Cleve Backster has lead the investigation of communication between humans and other life forms and plants. His remarkable discovery and related research provides evidence supporting the contention that there are extra-sensory modes of communications among living systems, most likely not electromagnetic in nature, and suggesting that consciousness may well link all forms of life, from single cell organisms to human beings.


Backster's research and finds were first popularized in the 1973 book, The Secret Life of Plants, and have more recently been documented in his own book, Primary Perception.
