It has become a scientific understanding in the modern world that music has the power and ability to accelerate the growth of plants and crops. Does it ever become an occurrence to people that the song and dance of the pagan culture perhaps had the same effect on their environment? And it perhaps was more effective since the energy of the people can be harvested in their rituals and celebrations.
In their worldview, everything was alive and animistic. This book, which goes by name of "The Secret Life Of Plants: A Fascinating Account of the Physical, Emotional, and Spiritual Relations between Plants and Man
clearly demonstrates that plants have a psychic sentience to them, that they can respond to pain and emotions. The pagan psyche was more attuned to the natural environment than we are today. Their psychic faculties weren't atrophied by a materialist-scientific paradigm, like ours. This is a science we have to rediscover. Well, please, give it a paganistic contemplation and speculation if you will; The rhythms of the dance would undulate the terrestrial earth, the songs of the instruments and vocal singing would respond emotionally to the plants, giving them an energy which would help them accelerate their growth.
