First of all what are fungi?

This diagram explains the different parts of fungi: the mushroom: the fruit and reproductive body that we are well aware of and consume.
And the hyphae + mycelium: the vegetative part of the fungi, they are composed by a vast underground network that provide the fungus with nutrients. The branches can extend as far as kilometres, making mycelium a particularly interesting phenomena.

According to leading mycologist (study of fungi) Paul Stamets, mycelium can be applied to different scenarios that can clean up our current climate crisis. Also researchers at Utrecht University have developed FU, fungi that converts plastic into food.

  1. Clean up oil spills
  2. absorb farm pollution
  3. fight off disease: eg the flu
  4. combat pests: termites, carpenter ants
  5. re-green the planet
  6. create a sustainable and alternative to fuel: econol

3 ways psilocybin can heal us

Psilocybin mushrooms are also known for their colloquial name: magic mushrooms, can heal our current mental and climate crisis.

  1. The dissolution of ego
  2. A connection to nature
  3. Climate action

The dissonance we have created between man and nature is fostering an unhealthy society, one that celebrates consumerism and the destruction of nature. Humans today have completely neglected their natural origins and abandoned their values for the perpetual race to material goods. Ironically this has not led to an increasingly happy populace, rather it has instigated a mental health crisis.

Yet ingestion of psilocybin can brings us back. Help us reevaluate our decisions, reconnect with nature and instigate climate action. Feel the deep connection we humans have with nature.

Perhaps it’s high time for a transcendental experience. One that can enlighten a movement of systemic change.
