Stephen Axford: How fungi changed my view of the world
"He that plants trees loves others beside himself" -Thomas Fuller
I watched a bit.. It seems like he's escaping his personal problems through mushrooms. Looking down, instead of up. It'll work for a while, maybe for a very long time, but eventually he'll have to deal with the loss of his wife, and the reasons for his own illness. The fungi are fantastic. I've heard that they comprise the largest organism on earth, namely the fungus in the soil which feeds the roots of redwoods.. The live action film Super Mario Bros. said it all, really. Truth is, humanity stomps over this beauty in our collective quest for commercial hogwash. We don't even notice it. So maybe he's focusing on the microcosm, and that will help him along toward understanding macro. The devil is in the details, but God is always there, too.
