A group of researchers in biology at the University of Bielefeld (Bielefeld, Germany) made a scientific breakthrough, showing that plants can use alternative sources of energy from other plants. Perhaps this discovery will seriously affect the future of bioenergy and, ultimately, provide evidence that people are similarly "charged" energy from other people.
The research team, led by Prof. Dr. Olaf Kruse (Olaf Kruse), first received confirmation that one of the plants — green algae species Chlamydomonas reinhardtii — not only involved in photosynthesis, but also uses an alternative source of energy, getting energy from other plants. The results are published this week in the online edition of Nature Communications, which produces the renowned journal Nature.
Colors are needed for the growth of water and light, and people are no different. Our physical body is like a sponge, absorb what surrounds them. "That's why there are people who feel uncomfortable in certain group conditions when infused energy and emotion," — says psychologist and psychotherapist Dr. Bader Olivia Lee (Olivia Bader-Lee).
Photosynthesis, plants use carbon dioxide, water and light. In a series of experiments, Professor Dr. Olaf Kruse and his research team grew microscopically small green alga species Chlamydomonas reinhardtii and found that these single-celled plants can compensate for the lack of energy, "charged" from plant cellulose neighbors. The algae secrete enzymes (so-called cellulose enzymes) for "digestion" of cellulose, breaking it into smaller simple sugars. Then the sugar is transported into cells and converted into a source of energy: algae can continue to grow. "For the first time this behavior has been confirmed in the plant body," — says Professor Kruse. — "The fact that algae can digest cellulose, contrary to all existing textbooks. To a certain extent what we see — a plant-eating plants. " Scientists are now busy looking for this mechanism in other species of algae. Preliminary results indicate that it exists.
"With the development of energy research in the coming years, we will eventually arrive at a projection of human behavior," — said Bader-Lee. "The human body is very similar to the plant, it attracts the necessary energy to fuel the emotional states that may significantly increase the cells to increase the concentration of cortisol and cause cell catabolism, depending on the emotional triggers."
Bader-Lee believes that bioenergy as a branch of science is now steadily growing, and that in the near future in the world of plants and animals will be conducted studies that show that the metaphysicians, studying energy, has long been known: people can heal each other simply through the transfer of energy like plants. "A person can be charged and heal through other people, animals, or any part of nature. That's why so many people often experience improved mood and energy recovery, when are close to nature, "- concludes psychologist.
