In late February 2018, I inoculated two mycelial networks, contained in the boxes seen below – on the left, a simple soap container from muji (also used for this project), and on the right, a shiny little green metal box.
This post tracks the progress of the mycelium growing within the containers.
Inventions such as animal husbandry, irrigation, writing and mathematics are viewed as the hallmarks of early civilization. These advancements separated us from other earth species by taking advantage of our ability to self-organize and further ensure our survival.
Yet these advancements – and the many that followed – required humanity to develop a deep bias and obsession with order and classification.
