The third video, hell why should I bother explaining if you cant be bothered watching
I for one appreciate the breakdown of what is in the videos..
Despite the era of fiber optic high speed internet, there are still those of us who are still stuck in the prehistoric digital age
I call my setup Hillbilly broadband, which is merely a tethered blackberry attached to a signal amp/antenna to squeeze out sub 3G cellular service..
Please, carry on with your summaries?

This article posits that fungi and mycelium are the Earth's Natural Internet. It has a lot of quotes from Stamets' books and has the TED video as well
I thought this was interesting
In 1998 scientists discovered that fungi split from animals about 1.538 billion years ago, whereas plants split from animals about 1.547 billion years ago. This means fungi split from animals 9 million years after plants did, in which case fungi are actually more closely related to animals than to plants. The fact that fungi had motile cells propelled by flagella that are more like those in animals than those in plants, supports that. -- Science Daily
so mushrooms could possibly an even better medicine than some herbs. Nice find

I watched this video a few years back and have found it again. This guy has a pretty good theory on Mushrooms being "Manna" from the Bible. Give him a few minutes of your time and you'll see he has a pretty good point by using the Bibles description of Manna.
We may be just a few years away from going to our neighborhood pharmacies for our monthly supply of medicinal mushrooms. From the Independent: Magic mushrooms could one day be prescribed for depression after Professor David Nutt, the controversial sacked government drugs advisor, claimed research on healthy volunteers proved what a mistake it was to abandon therapeutic psychedelic drugs more than 50 years ago. The first clinical trial into magic mushroom therapy could start by the end of the year after two small studies suggested the active chemical, psilocybin, had a profound affect on key regions of the brain.
