    I watched Fantatic Fungi at the weekend. Interesting & entertaining.

    I am glad you enjoyed it. The resemblance between neural networks and mycelial networks is intriguing.

    I didn't know trees communicated via mycelial networks. I suspect there might be a lot to learn.
    The spores of the mushrooms are taken up into the air by updrafts and act as nuclei for the formation of raindrops. They also transfer electric charge. The "pop-up" kind of air-mass thunderstorms that develop from rapidly building cumulus clouds, rain out in a few minutes and repeat across a mesoscale landscape are a stage in the life cycle of the psychedelic mushrooms.

    Yes, I have become fascinated with

    I think my bigly criticism is that, Gaia would never have allowed us to evolve, much less survive were it all true. Or, possibly that is being corrected at present. Or maybe we are the zygotes of Gaia and we spread to other, dead planets.

    Soon you'll attain the stability you strive for,
    In the only way that it's granted:
    In a place among the fossils of our time.

    In loyalty to their kind
    They cannot tolerate our minds.
    In loyalty to our kind
    We cannot tolerate their obstruction!

    Life is change.
    How it differs from the rocks.
    I've seen their ways too often for my liking.
    New worlds to gain.
    My life is to survive and be alive
    for you.

    It's a comforting thought that the Earth might look after itself irrespective of our depredations. I'm pretty sure it's wishful thinking, though.

    Still, there is a lot of homeostasis in various systems that we ignore at our peril.
    Great fleas have little fleas upon their backs to bite 'em,
    And little fleas have lesser fleas, and so ad infinitum.
    And the great fleas themselves, in turn, have greater fleas to go on;
    While these again have greater still, and greater still, and so on.

    The singers of the song you referenced, Drew. Have you considered adding Lion's Mane to your diet?

    Yup I know. I even have owned the vinyl since the early seventies.

    I was simply curious as to why on earth you'd ask about a band name we both already knew.
    Too much Badger's Tail, perhaps?

    You must have a remarkable collection with your eclectic tastes.

    Sorry, I never heard of them; but, British Jazz was never my thing. Besides, for some reason the Badgers in my mind kept echoing "Smelly Feet".

    I had the pleasure of looking after George, John and the Feetwarmers on several occasions during the late '70's and 'early '80's whilst part of the Ents team at Uni. They were a blast - always ready to spin a yarn, and get VERY drunk, and in no way fazed by the 'YOOF OF TODAY'. Thoroughly pleasant guys, all of 'em. I remember George being asked on Parkinson "What's the most drunk you've ever been on stage whilst performing?" and his answer "Flat out under the piano".....
