"I wonder what would happen if there were a United Nations of Organisms, where each species gets one vote.Would we be voted off the planet? The answer is pretty clear. When we irresponsibly exploit the Earth, disease, famine and ecological collapse result. We face the possibility of being rejected by the biosphere as a virulent organism. But if we act as a responsible species, nature will not evict us. Our fungal friends equip us with tools to act responsibly and repair our shared environment, leading the way to habitat recovery. So knowing how to work with fungi - by custom pairing fungal species with plant communities- is critical for our survival" - Paul Stamets - 'Mycelium Running'
