I would agree with you here, Rose. People don't tend to talk about it. I have seen surprising reactions from people simply seeing his books in my house. And yet, Buhner has had a huge impact on me, along with others like Martín Prechtel (especially his latest book on plants
), Paul Astin and David Abram. I don't know if I just marked myself or not. I don't think I'm looking for unicorns and faeries just because I believe plants are more than mere biological machines and that they communicate.
