The Mushroom

11/20/2016

Waldog

"What we call a mushroom is only the tip of the iceberg of a much bigger and essentially invisible organism ... The mushroom is the 'fruiting body' of a subterranean network of microscopic hyphae, improbably long root-like cells that thread themselves through the soil like neurons ... [one such network] recently found in Michigan covers an area of forty acres underground and is thought to be a few centuries old."


- Michael Pollan
