Dr. Masaru Emoto shows how water molecules even react differently to different types of music. Hes done tons of research on the subject despite receiving negative responses from the scientific community saying it's pseudoscience even though you can do the rice experiment in your own home and watch the results yourself after just a few weeks..
There's so much more to reality than we can even begin to comprehend..
You might want to check upon Mr Emoto and his 'what the bleep' cronies. He now says that his previous findings regarding how water molecules and ice crystals respnd to emotion wasn't meant as proper science, but art. Why? Because he was discovered to have falsified all his findings. The pictures of crystals that he said had formed because of positive and negative thoughts were actually hand picked. He didn't mention this at the time for some reason...
There may well be more to reality than we can (currently) comprehend, but what we can't comprehend does not have to have a spooky cause.
Edit: There is no doubt that playing sounds to plants affects them, but different researchers get different effects. Sometimes rock is better, sometimes classical, but sound in general seems to help growth. Why?:
"...Wind also creates similar vibrations. When plants are regularly affected by wind, a hormone called ethylene is released. This hormone creates thicker, stronger stems and might be the same hormone released when plants are played music.
However, too much of this hormone can stunt plant growth, which might be why music played for more than four hours a day can make plants sickly.
There still has not been a lot of professional research on plants and stimuli, but there have been some new discoveries. In 2007, South Korean researcher Mi-Jeong Jeong studied plant genetics and their reaction to stimuli. He discovered that sounds at certain frequencies (125 Hz and 250 Hz) speed up genetic activity within rice plants..."
It's already known that many plants grow stronger if their stems are shaken regularly, producing ethylene. The right length of shaking via music is bound to help.
