    Marvelous mushrooms and mycelia

    Paul Stamets has made appearances here and there on the forum. He helped to bring renewed interest in fungi for myself. Shadowself shared valuable information about supplements.

    Here's a trailer for a movie about these biological forbears.

    Is that Aiawanese for ayahuasca? I haven't done that. I haven't done any sort of tripping since college. I have no idea what the experience would be at this age. But I'm not planning on doing it. Maybe DMT.

    DMT can be quite intense so ayahuasca... Well, that's whole another level.

    Also I find it really funny that Stamets' hat is literally made out of a mushroom.

    Personally, I like my mushrooms with a creamy sauce. And maybe mashed potatoes on the side.

    Paul was recently on Joe Rogan's show. He has developed a bee feeder with his mycelium honey which helps them to resist the viral infections which debilitate hives.

    Paul maintains that the number one issue which brings people across the spectrum together is concern over bees.

    They also talk a lot about micro-dosing with psilocybin.

    I just discovered that Sprouts carries Paul's supplements. That's convenient since I never got around to ordering any.

    Those things are totally weird ... not to mention a very interesting trip ... I wouldn't and don't eat them for nutrition.

    However, nature is depressingly and disappointedly messy ... check out all the truly useless DNA we carry around. Intelligence? Intelligent genes are a subject that has been discussed. Are they so intelligent they refuse to go away even when they have no function or even practical form. I really don't like the idea. It messes with my worldview of nature, dare I say it even God as examples of perfection.

    Non-anthropormorphic intelligence is another huuuggge subject.

    It isn't my final thought that's for sure

    Now this is quite something! Not sure if Stamets has mentioned it before.
