Waves in Dark Matter

Plant Communication

In our early work with W-waves (see the Wagner paper W-Waves and Plant Communication published in Northwest Science in 1989) we found that if we damaged one tree of a particular species such as by chopping or cutting with a knife we could record a signal from probes in the same tree above the wound. What was more interesting, however, was that surrounding trees put out a corresponding, delayed signal. We used signals from three trees to determine the velocity of signal travel between trees. Insect attack on one tree has previously been observed to be detected by surrounding trees by other researchers. The effect was attributed to the movement of pheromones (see, for example, the references at the end of chapter 3 in Waves in Dark Matter) but they didn't double check to see if the signal traveled faster than the pheromone hypothesis indicated. The velocity of the signal (approx 25 m/s; corrected 1989 value) doesn't fit any earthly phenomanon so far observed. We used the idea that the waves involved were waves in dark matter since dark matter is everywhere. Pheromones may also provide a means of communication. There is much recorded data around, that includes communication between plants and people, that has likely been taken too lightly. The w-wave theory makes communication effects much more feasible. See Waves in Dark Matter for much more detail. Also see 1/f Noise and Dark Matter Waves in Trees, Samples, and air
