A Quote by Paul Stamets on consciousness and earth

I see the mycelium as the Earth's natural Internet, a consciousness with which we might be able to communicate.  Through cross-species interfacing, we may one day exchange information with these sentient cellular networks.  Because these externalized neurological nets sense any impression upon them, from footsteps to falling tree branches, they could relay enormous amounts of data regarding the movements of all organisms through the landscape.

A Quote by Paul Stamets on nature

in

I believe that mycelium is the neurological network of nature.  Interlacing mosaics of mycelium infuse habitats with information-sharing membranes.  These membranes are aware, react to change, and collectively have the long-term health of the host environment in mind.  The mycelium stays in constant molecular communication with its environment, devising diverse enzymatic and chemical responses to complex challenges.
