A student of mine a while back created a conceptual book about contagion. It had beautiful and seemingly blank white pages and was bound in a deep black velvety paper binding. On each page was printed very subtle white-on-white imagery, almost imperceptible, which you had to carefully hold in order to view up close. What wasn’t evident through either sight or touch was that the black covers, front and back were impregnated with dirty black pigment. As you leafed through the white pages, you left the residue of your touch throughout the book. The object became an archive of its own use, a concrete illustration of the imperceptible virulence of contagion.

Mycelium Drift

The multidimensional nature of the culture of the root is little recognized to this day within task and technical-advisory groups. Root culture is seen to improve (and ensure) coordination among various organizational strata. “Hyphae-running” is known to disambiguate formulation strategies while hairy root spawn rewards stakeholders by fostering innovation leading to deeper level interrogative. Questions frequently asked include:

        • What were the implications of mass running?
        • What results accrued through “wood-shed” methodology?
        • How did observational speed affect recorded results? (see “micron-signaling”)
        • Was there an effective use of known root resource?
        • Should objectives, frequencies, or methods remain unaltered for septic spawn situations?
Psychosis Participants

Little recognized to date is the unique, multidimensional nature of the response to root culture treatment. The two psychosis participants in first-episode therapy identified their experiences as both traumatic and familiar. They acknowledged uncomfortable throat constriction due to fungal inhalation within aseptic chambers. These case studies indicate individual difference and needs and demonstrate important areas for early sporebag intervention. Grass of Janet is suggested as curative, though further study is advised.

Sporebag Intervention

Burrowers commonly inhabiting manure piles and rank decaying vegetation are sometimes seen tunneling through sand. Distinguishing features are a humped back, and a wild jerky run. Adults have large mouths with seven visible teeth, and females in estrus are known to lay live eggs in earthen jars. Such groupings are often cosmopolitan and are represented by 32 distinct soundings. Echolocation is suspected though not confirmed. The segmented body passes from head to posterior. Morphology could be casually described as small-large-large-small, and so on throughout sedimentary instars. Neighbors to burrowers are seen typically foraging in open spaces above vegetation, and are fast, agile fliers covering great distances and reaching considerable heights. After grouping, they communicate through hyphae networks within old compost, which are subsequently broken down into soggy, sodden masses, no longer suitable for signal stimulation. Care must be taken with incineration as spores are easily erupted from the sporebag.
