Is there a magic in simply believing???
I had a teacher named Mr. Ivy, and he said that he talked to his plants because it helped them grow.
So after class I asked him, “Do you really believe that talking to your plants will help them grow?
And I was referring to his actual words and referring to the ridiculous assumption that somehow the plants could somehow understand him.
Yes, Mr. Ivy, responded, because the carbon-dioxide from my breath helps them grow. But it has nothing to do with the actual words I say to them.
Even if I had simply believed that talking to plants would have helped them grow without this logical explanation, the plants would still have benefited just the same.
