Well, doing a bit more research, I finally found some potentially important and inspiring information about applying free/alternative (electric) energy techniques to crops for more yield and other benefits.

I'll list a few important links for reading.

Here is a forum link full of great research/PDF links of academic papers. The main ones here deal with "Improvement of Mushroom Yield By Electric Stimulation." https://mycotopia.net/forums/fungi-magic-mushrooms/65286-improvement-mushroom-yield-electric-stimulations.html

Here is a link to Hemp Husbandry via electric stimulation in ElectroCulture: http://www.rexresearch.com/hhusb/hh5elc.htm

Here is an article about how Lightning (natural electric plasma phenomena) stimulates mushroom growth, and then how the Japanese scientists utilized this by producing "lightning devices" to simulate the effect on wood surfaces. http://news.nationalgeographic.com/news/2010/04/100409-lightning-mushrooms-japan-harvest/

Here is another article verifying this phenomena and then being applied to other various crops: http://www.pyroenergen.com/articles10/lightning-mushrooms.htm

Here is paul stamets, a renowned mycologist explaining in a lecture how mushrooms are the ultimate conductors of the plant world; they are the ultimate guides for the growth and stimulation of the other plant species. Wherever we have many mushrooms, we naturally have rich vegetation, from the cover crop to the tallest of trees. This covers the psychedelic mushrooms, for the benefit of humanity as well. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wr35ynTvkPg

Here is a treasure trove of "free energy" devices developed over the years by a number of people. You can also find US government patents on some of them. http://www.rexresearch.com/index.htm

Chromographics Institute, which deals with many phenomena, including plasma: http://www.chromographicsinstitute.com/

Article from Christopher Dunn, highly qualified credentials, who describes in a nutshell, how we can even find evidence of utilized electricity in ancient Egypt: http://www.gizapower.com/Anotherrobot.htm

Nikola Tesla and pyramid power, by independent researcher Hrvoje Zujić: http://www.scribd.com/doc/13030581/Tesla-and-pyramid

And last but not least for this post, the Thunderbolts plasma cosmology research scientists in their video presentation, "Thunderbolts of the Gods." - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5AUA7XS0TvA

Enjoy!

Here is another great source. I'll be compiling more and more research material here.

Here is Yannick Van Doorne, an electroculture/magnetoculture pioneer, who has been marketing his research and inventions for awhile now.

And here are some websites he has contributed to: http://users.belgacom.net/gc681999/Onderwerpen/Info/Ecosonic.htm

Here is his website: http://www.electrocultureandmagnetoculture.com/index.html

Enjoy!

Hey Joseph,

Thanks for the great links - I am especially interested in the mushroom-related ones because I'm not much familiar with them.

With regards to integrating electricity into permaculture practices, I think there are many possibilities. One of which is taking advantage of the phenomenon of electrokinetic action soil nutrients. By applying an electric field across an area of soil, charged nutrients are be transported from towards the electrode of the opposite charge. This can be capitalized upon in a number of ways:
* First, I think that companion planting methods can be modified to allow plants that work well together to be more separated from each other, since root exudates from each of the plants can be transported across large distances, electrokinetically.
* Second, I think that nutrients can be gathered / attracted towards the plant(s) of interest from a much larger surface area of soil. In my mind I think of this as having an effect like turning the ground into a hydroponic medium, allowing a denser amount of nutrients to come into contact with plant roots. Historically, (I cannot think of the person who discovered it), someone found that a field can be fertilized electronically by placing one electrode next to a manure pile, and another electrode at the far end of row.

This is all for DC-based stimulation, of course.

What do you think?

If you had "free energy" you could just run a bunch of grow lights. People (potheads) have been growing things quite successfully for years in areas with no sunlight.

Hell, if you had free energy you could build a lightning maching to cast lightning bolts into soil, which is how nature adds to the Nitrogen cycle.

One problem, though. Energy is not free.

Hi David Wechsler,

Thanks for checking my posts out!

And thanks for your website. Looks pretty cool!

The DC methods seem pretty simple and accessible to me. AC is a bit more complicated, don't you think? Nikola Tesla comes to mind when I recall AC techniques today. I think he did a tremendous thing for society, although there are some major setbacks. For one thing, we seem to be "overstimulated" as a society by high frequency currents. Perhaps we need to "tone" the technology down a bit. Of course, this implies getting back to the resources that nature provides, perhaps.

Maybe you have a bigger picture of what's going on with our technology these days.

Dave Turpin,

What I mean by "free energy," is that we can build conduit type devices that can harness the already existing natural "free" energy that flows throughout nature. There are things we can build to "direct" natural lightning for man-made endeavors.

We don't create or invent free energy. What I mean is that the "free energy" is already present. Check up in space or in the ionosphere, for example. There are charged particles just waiting to be used positively. Haha.

If you direct yourself to the research links I provided, like the Thunderbolts Project, for example, you will find that Space Weather is defined by the highly electrical plasma phenomena happening in space.

We already have natural plants, growing in the wild, like mushrooms, for example, that charge and discharge electrical particles. The mushroom discharges it's spores out into its surroundings at 25,000 G-force, which is about 10,000 times the force of a rocket launch. These are electrically charged particles at work here. See Paul Stamets, mycologist - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wr35ynTvkPg

The energy is already here. We just need to learn how to work with it more efficiently.

Hey Joseph,

Sorry for not replying earlier... I guess the response got lost in my email bucket...

I agree with you that AC is a bit overstimulating - in my day job, I work with smart meters and when I occasionally have to perform tests in the meter room, a room filled with electric meters, I start getting sick. I think it's a real problem in our society. In fact, when there is a power outage, it makes sense that all feels well in the world.

That's what I like about DC electroculture - it's inherently safe, uses minute amounts of current, and works well. AC and high voltage systems bother me and seem to be unsafe (in the hands of the un-initiated or electrically sensitive).

Hi Joseph, glad that you conclude with the admission of how electricity/radiowaves/microwaves overstimulate the plants (as with us as humans, it overstimulates the central nervous system). Lots of people quote Tesla but don't realise his own technology made him very sick. He became Electrosensitive and bedridden. His system was tortured by the vibrations (think like the Heisenberg principle) it's like your entire system is breaking apart. So....in that vein...think of what it is doing to the plant's cell structure, and to our earth. All life has a natural resonant frequency which needs to be maintained for optimum health. If you go electrifying everything, especially nature you are in essence making everything artificial and away from the intentions of permaculture. Here are a few studies about the effects of emfs (electromagnetic fields) on our trees and plants.
