Interesting prospect

I followed some links on a Wiki page, and found their Mycelem networks to be interesting. Strange how things (brain, Internet, filaments in space, etc) all resemble one another.

If they are invading: are they attacking?

Several hunded species of fungi are human parasites.

The Spectrum of Fungi That infects Humans

Among the estimated 1.5–5.0 million fungal species on planet Earth (O’Brien et al. 2005), only several hundred cause disease in humans, and very few are able to affect healthy people.

One of my fav topics. In case anyone is new to it:

Of course, Terence McKenna discussed this,
Are Magic Mushrooms a Gateway to a Different World? Elves, Spirits, and Extraterrestrials

According to McKenna’s research, small insulated and secure mushroom spores can journey through space by jumping on board of comets, then cultivating planets, creating synergetic relationships with advanced species with the goal of extending their consciousness throughout the universe.

Don't forget panspermia,

This isn’t the first time we have heard something of this nature. Nobel laureate Francis Crick was the first to state a similar notion that life travels throughout the universe through the implantation of warm, egg-like ocean planets, via chemical amino acid chains inside of sperm-like comets. This belief is called “directed panspermia.”

There was a man living simply on a small patch of land in Devon, England. He said psilocybin mushrooms know how to make spacecraft, and if you agree to take some of their spores with you they will tell you.

Suddenly one day he was gone.

Anyone hear heard of Kilindi Iyi? African martial arts teacher, philosopher and advocate of ultra high psylocybin mushroom dosing (40g dried. 8x Terence McKenna’s heroic dose), Kilindi credits psilocybin mushrooms with helping establish contact with the original intelligence and creators of the universe residing at the planck scale.

at 40g dried... I have little doubt aliens would be on the menu as well.

Mushrooms are the fruiting bodies of the fungus.
They are neither animal or veg.
They are one of the most important organisms on earth.
The fungus breaks down molecules of chemicals so plants can absorb and feed off nutrients which would otherwise have too large molecules for the plant to take in.
Every plant has its own fungus associated to/with it.
As far as i can remember. They were a split in the way life evolved on earth.
As for if they can survive space. I hope so. As, i don't see any future for humans and long term space travel. Unless all the other important microbes and small organisms that (if they can also survive space too) break down matter into nutrients available to the plants.
They are not the only natural substance to contain psycho active/hallucinogenic properties.
I do believe they and the other substances are responsible for many of humans advancements. And, not only taken by shaman's.
I would also go as far to say. Buddha himself found his way via one substance or another.

Fungi rule the world already...but no not aliens..but they are everywhere and most other life depends on fungus to live.

The author of the video linked in the original post seemed reasonably serious about his proposal that mushrooms could be an extraterrestrial life form. ET mushrooms? Probably not. Genetically speaking, animals on Earth, including humans, have a common ancestor with mushrooms, back around a billion years ago.

We are actually more closely related to mushrooms than we are to plants. If we and mushrooms originated on different worlds, this genetic kinship would not be expected to exist.

The suspicion that any odd-seeming form of life found on Earth originally came here from the stars can presumably be scientifically confirmed or refuted. We need only examine its genetic make up, and compare it to that which all life that began on our planet has in common.

hello intrepidmind

i have information that you and the crew may find interesting. it is quite long and I have no source/link/author to attribute it to albeit the name hamilton.
if content let me know as I would rather get your blessing on displaying some history perhaps unknown to many.

I highly doubt just aliens would be on the menu with 40g of P. Subaeruginosa's... More like a terrifying one way ticket to meet your maker!

Her name is Caterpillar Woman.
She is terrifying.

I have researched a fair bit on psilocybin, September to first frost every year, would love to see what you got.

i have no clue as to who wrote this. i read it a number of years ago and happened upon it this evening.

in lieu of intrepidmind and consent a section

as follows....

In July 2011, on the hottest day of the year, I received a fragile-looking Maxell compact cassette from a
retired psychology professor and gerbil-aggression researcher named Gary Davis. I had been told the cassette
contained a recording of two police officers discussing their involvement in the robbery and murder of one
Steven Pollock, a physician and pioneering mycologist who — despite invaluable contributions to the field,
including an improved technique for growing psychedelic mushrooms on Purina Dog Chow — remains largely unknown.
Carefully labeled police crook 6/17/81, the cassette had for thirty years been stored in a toolbox under

two dozen inoperative WWII-era Geiger counters in Davis’s mother’s house. I had offered to pay for the tape
but Davis refused, insisting he just wanted it to be heard by as many people as possible, then backtracking
and suggesting he wouldn’t mind terribly if I sent him twenty dollars for beer. I was worried about the tape’s
integrity and had been reading anxiously about the myriad problems that befall aging magnetic media — binder
embrittlement, remanence reduction, even fungal contamination — and the transaction was further charged by a
stern warning from another source: “This information should be treated with due caution. Some of these cops,
if still living, could be very dangerous.”

They're fungi. They live off other organsims, either dead or alive, depending on their specific species. I know many types of edible ones and have collected them for years. I leave the poisonous or inedible ones alone.

That's all.
