Did you know that ants and termites farm fungi?
Primordium, mushroom fungi of the Termitomyces sp., are carried two to three and even four feet underground into the nest of termites. It then begins to grow as a long "taproot" up towards the service, where it will then fruit into a large mushroom. Termitomyces sp., is a highly favored delicious edible type of mushroom. Paul Stamets explains how termites cultivate this mushroom is actually unknown and "befuddles the best mycological minds in the world".





















Did you know that mycelium helps trees to grow? In one case a tree with a deficiency in sugar was actually provided sugar through mycelium, that brought it in from another tree who had a surplus. Mycelium branches out like a web and can grow very fast created large networks that can become huge mats just under, or on, the forest floor. Mycelium uses these branches like roadways transporting nutrients where its needed. Mycelium also can, and does, protect plants and their roots from harmful bacteria. In a study, two Big Leaf Maple saplings where grown side by side, one with mycorrhizae (mycelium inoculation) and one without. The difference was more than noticeable, as shown in the image to the right.


Mycelium actually creates dirt. Much like yeast creates alcohol as a bi-product, literally the waste of the organism is what we consume as alcohol in beverages; mycelium manufactures dirt from things such as dead plants and animals. Different strains of mushroom fuzz, mycelium, prefers different substrate. One strain recently discovered brakes down toxins as deadly as nuclear waste at the atomic level, literally turning such harmful waste into organic dirt!

"Magic mushrooms, which are potentially dangerous and widely illegal. Even when they provide the health benefits described below, they're typically used in a controlled clinical setting, often with counseling or other guidance from medical professionals. That said, however, they are also natural wonders of our planet that we would be foolish to ignore. " -mnn.com

"Although magic mushrooms are widely outlawed as dangerous drugs with no medical value, a growing body of research casts them in a much less nefarious light. Psychedelics have "negligible habit-forming potential," as neuroscientist Nick Jikomes wrote for a Harvard science blog in 2015, and they've even been shown to help treat addiction to habit-forming drugs like cocaine and nicotine." -mnn.com

"Magic mushrooms are also increasingly seen as a potential psychiatric wonder drug. Research has shown promising effects on depression, for example, such as a 2017 study that found psilocybin "may effectively reset the activity of key brain circuits known to play a role in depression." The compound seems to boost emotional responsiveness in the brain, another recent study found, suggesting it could relieve depression without the "emotional blunting" often associated with traditional antidepressants known as selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs)." -mnn.com

"Psilocybin has brought transformative relief from anxiety, too, including in people diagnosed with life-threatening cancer. In one 2016 study, researchers found that moderate doses of psilocybin — combined with psychotherapy — helped cancer patients overcome anxiety and depression related to their diagnosis, leading to a long-term rise in quality of life and optimism. Six months after a single dose (which only lasted four to six hours), about 80 percent of participants still showed significantly reduced anxiety and depression, and 83 percent still reported higher life satisfaction. Two-thirds even described their psilocybin session as one of the top five most meaningful experiences in their lives." -mnn.com

There is a lot more to mushrooms than the magic effects of the mostly illegal psilocybin shrooms. Mushrooms in general can be terrifying and deadly, mystical and "magical" as well as beneficial to human health. Some people believe mushrooms used to grow 30 feet tall back in ancient times, and it is certainly true that the fungi called mycelium of which the mushroom is only the fruiting property of, is the largest organism on earth. One of the mycelium mats, as they are called, is 400 acres large; Oregon, USA.

Many believe a lot of knowledge has been lost in regards to mushrooms, and today in modern times with centuries of research we are literally only starting to understand the true power and benefits of mushrooms and more over, mycelium.
