Exploring The Spectrum
A fact of life is that many people who love nature are turned off by the word electromagnetic. Any naturalist; amateur or professional must have a down to earth understanding of the electromagnetic spectrum. The entire spectrum is covered in this book, everything from the short radioactive waves used to sterilize male screw flies so the female lays sterile eggs; to the long-wave radio frequencies that penetrate the soil, control and enhance root growth and the immune system of plants and animals. Explains not only the visible-light spectrum, but also the invisible high-energy nuclear and low-energy infrared and radio portions of the electromagnetic spectrum.

To me this is a great 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.

This book was disappointing, not what I was expecting anyway. There was very little information regarding how insects see things, from a spectrum stand point. I would not recommend it.
