About the Author

Dr. Philip S. Callahan is a philosopher as well as a top-grade scientist. An internationally famous entomologist and ornithologist, he has been responsible for breakthrough discoveries in both areas.

He is also an explorer who has walked across mainland China and the Syrian Desert, observing the intricate ways of man and nature wherever he went.

He entered the U.S. Army Air Force in 1942, and served two years in the European Theater of Operations during World War II. Hiking around the world after he war, he worked as a freelance photographer and writer. Later, he attended Fordham University and received his B.A. and M.S. degrees from the University of Arkansas and his Ph.D. from Kansas State University. He served as assistant professor of the Entomology Department at Louisiana State University and later joined the U.S. Department of Agriculture, Southern Grain Insects Research Laboratory as Project Leader for Insect Biophysics. He was also Professor of Entomology on the graduate faculty of the University of Georgia. In 1969 he transferred to USDA Insect Attractant and Behavior Laboratory at Gainesville, Florida. Callahan served as a full professor on the graduate faculty of the University of Florida, and on the staff of The Olive W. Garvey Center for the Improvement of Human Functioning, Inc. as an infrared systems and low energy consultant.

His research involved the utilization of nonlinear far infrared radiation by biological systems and its applications to insect control and medicine. He has developed theories of insect communication based on the waveguide characteristics of insect spines and has postulated that such spines are thermoelectret-coated dielectric waveguide aerials with the ability to receive short wavelength IR and microwave frequencies. His work in biophysics might best be called studies in insect molecular bioelectronics.

He is the author of more than 100 scientific papers and numerous books, including: My Search for Traces of God; A Walk in the Sun; Nature's Silent Music; Ancient Mysteries, Modern Visions; and Tuning in to Nature.

Green Gold has integrated the Callahan Recognitions with homeopathy, nutrition, and paramagnetic growing into a total approach to Houseplants, Gardening, Horticulture & Agriculture. We highly recommend buying this book, a small Green Gold houseplant formula, and watch this amazing book in action in your own home. Dr. Callahan's work is used extensively in sustainable natural growing circles. These principles have been used in China for milleniums and are know there as the Yen & the Yang and the Chi of Growing. The medical and agricultural applications are a major breakthrough and just waiting for global debut.

I bought this book because I am a gardener and am always interested in new, possibly useful ways to garden better. I believe in the role of energy and frequencies in enhancing health, so I was hoping to find something useful to add to my knowledge. Unfortunately, there is NONE in this book, in spite of the author believing it will "save the world's agriculture". He has proven through his experiments that energies exist. He has created a $400 meter to measure them (which obviously is much better than the existing $4,000 meters for the average gardener or farmer). He says these energies exist in SOME rocks, particularly volcanic ones, but that they vary significantly based on the origin of the rock, so you can't just buy granite dust or Azomite or whatever and put it on your garden and expect results. He says that 60-70% of the world's agricultural land is deficient in this energy, which is required to release the nutrients in the soil. But most of the book is about how he discovered and measures these energies, pretty much Greek if you don't understand radio waves, etc. I kept waiting for his conclusions or recipe or recommendations about how to use this information, but it never came.

I think Dr. Callahan is/was a fascinating person and that he probably made a major contribution by trying to reconnect chemistry, physics and biology as they relate to agriculture. But as a gardener, I found this book to be totally useless.

If you have never read Philip Callahan you are missing out on the most brilliant insight of earth and insects availabke. Phip Callahan is the modern day Thomas Edison. Also, read his book, Tuning into Nature. It will change the way you view your world.

This is one of my favorite organic gardening books on energy, his most important work ever for organic gardeners. He lays out a lifetime of research into forces in nature and his discoveries regarding the force of paramagnetism and the amazing effects it has upon soils, plants and people.

This book looks back to how our the ancestors farmed and uses today's technology to find the answers. There is more to what is influencing our planet than simply the moon and the stars. We haven't began to understand our planet!

Callahan's own words telling that this is his "most important book" tells much. This was fast read and opened insight to level of reality which we mostly are not aware of. Very good perspective on agriculture, how three things are at the very basis of healthy plant growth and generally at the basis of health of soil; Composting, micro-organisms and paramagnetism. This book covers only paramagnetism, out of those three, and does it very well.
