From my notes: Paul Stamets:
“The task that we face today is to understand the language of nature. My mission is to discover the language of the fungal networks that communicate with the ecosystem.
“I happen to believe nature is intelligent. . . .
“If you knew that every breath you took would save hundreds of lives in the future had you walked down this path of knowledge, wouldn’t you run down this path as fast as you could?”
