Paul Stamets Speaking On The “Magic” Of Mushrooms

I was again blown away hearing yet another talk from Paul, this time speaking at the Bioneers conference in 2003, in Australia. Paul starts talking at 6 minutes 30 seconds but the introduction is worth listening to though if you have the time.

Paul discusses a huge range of topics surrounding the benefits of Fungi/Mushrooms. The solutions to a huge range of problems is literally under our feet. He’s discovered many new species of fungi/mushrooms and is an advocate for saving the “old growth forest” for as he sayings “as a matter of national security”, they are still countless fungi to be discovered and we can only really dream of what benefits they could also have for humans and the biosphere as a whole. He says that we are closer to fungi than we are to plants due to things such as that fungi take in oxygen and put out carbon dioxide, same as us. He believes that fungi are intelligent and we need to team up with them to solve the problems we face using things such as bioremediation, curing diseases, natural pest control, natural hygiene and many, many more!

There’s so many things to mention but are few are:
Used to carry fire for first humans
First clinical trials with mushrooms in america
Using mushrooms as a potential cure for aids
Internets setup the same as fungi networks
Using fungi to breakdown oil spills and soil contamination
Regarding finding worlds first cure for ecoli
The advantages of burlap sacks as best to establish fungi
… and so much more!
