Communication is very mysterious

                          Between the sun and the earth also there are communication bridges like this, and every moment messages are being passed across these bridges. And similarly, communication bridges exist between the earth and man.But that communication is very mysterious; it is inner and subtle. Let us understand something about this also.

Tree rings:

                           There is a research center in America known as the Tree Ring Research Center. If you cut down a tree you will find a number of rings or circles drawn across the cut surface. The beautiful decorative designs in the grain of wooden furniture are due to these circles. This research center has been working for the last fifty years on the formation of these rings.

Age of a tree can be calculated from its  rings:

                            Professor Douglas, the center’s director, who has spent a major part of his life studying them, has discovered a number of facts. Ordinarily, all of us know that the age of the tree can be calculated from the number of these circles. Every year one new ring is born; one new layer is made within the tree every year. If the tree is fifty years old, if it has seen fifty autumns, then there are fifty rings formed inside the tree.

 But it is surprising to know that these rings also indicate what sort of seasons there were in a particular year. If the seasons were more hot or wetter than usual, the ring formation
is broader. If the seasons were cold and dry, the ring is not so wide. It is possible to know when there were strong rains, when there was drought and when the seasons were very cold.

 Rings are wider every eleventh year:

                      The tree ring will be wider or thinner, indicating the type of season that particular year. While conducting his research, Professor Douglas reached still another conclusion which was far beyond anything he could have anticipated. He observed that the rings are wider every eleventh year – and every eleventh year there is maximum nuclear activity on the sun, the sun becomes more active. It is as if it has a periodic rhythm and its radioactivity is at a maximum then.                     

  During such a year a tree makes a wider ring – not in one forest or in one place or country, but all over the earth all trees behave similarly in order to protect themselves from the intensified radioactivity. To protect itself from the excessive power that is released by the sun, the tree grows a thicker skin every eleventh year.

Climate of the earth:

                     Due to this phenomenon, a new phrase, ”climate of the earth,” has been coined by scientists. The seasons are different at different places: somewhere it is raining, somewhere it is extremely coldand somewhere it is very hot. But with regard to this eleventh year, this new term, ”climate of the earth” was coined by Professor Douglas.

 Due to the sun’s radioactivity every eleventh year, there is a similarity of experience all over the earth. We might not notice it, but the trees do. There is a gradual decrease in the width of the tree rings that are formed after the eleventh year, and after five years there is again a gradual increasing in width up to the eleventh year.

Oldest tree:

               Tom Harlan knows of a tree somewhere in the White Mountains that might be even older. “There is one that Schulman cored, but he died before he could count the rings,” says Harlan. “It’s the oldest thing he ever collected, older than Methuselah and probably older than Prometheus.

   If the trees are so sensitive that they can carefully record an event happening on the sun, then isn’t it possible that in the mind of man also there might be some layer indicative of the sun’s activity?But till now its not found and its a mystery.
