Tuning in to Nature
Learn how plants and insects communicate through emissions in the infrared frequency range and why poisonous pesticides do not solve the real problems facing agriculture. In this breakthrough book Phil Callahan uncovers why certain insects are attracted only to certain plants, the role of pheromones work in nature, and how plants under stress literally signal insects to come devour them.

To me this is a wonderful book. The essence of it is about Callahans deep research into how insects are communicating on the infrared band of frequencies, how they can "read" the plants from a "birds perspective", choosing those plants to feed on, which are weak because those plants have a weaker infrared emission. This, to me, implies a totally new consept and knowledge on insect/plant relationships, and points to a whole new way of understanding the socalled "insect problem", which, in fact, really is no "problem" at all. We just have to give our plant produce the optimum conditions to grow strong and healthy, which in my view implies the application of "stone meals" or rock dust or unrefined sea salts, or deluted sea water. When all minerals (especially the trace minerals!) are present in the soil, plants will have a better immune system and thereby repell attacks from insects. I think Philip Callahan's research ties very well into the theses of John Hamaker, who wrote the book "The Survival of Civilization" in 1982, focusing on mineral deficiencies in soils all over the world.
