Fabulous Fungi Timelapse: Why Mushrooms Are Necessary to Life on Earth [VIDEO]

Without the fabulous fungi in our life, the earth and humanity as we know it would have difficulty surviving.

Mushrooms play an essential role in the health and survival of life on earth. Even human beings owe their quality of life to the fungi that regenerate the soil that gives life to our food crop.

Watch as noted mycologist Paul Stamets explains how we must learn to communicate with nature in order to survive. Living in harmony with our surroundings is directly related to our ability to “read” what the earth is telling us and this is how.

We need to have a paradigm shift in our consciousness. What will it take to achieve that?

This beautiful timelapse video is part of Louie Schwartzberg’s eco-documentary “Fantastic Fungi.” One of the main points of the film is how we as a race need to be conscious of life on earth and how our surroundings sustain and nourish us.

The path that we face today is to understand the language of nature.

Mushrooms are one of our most edible, delectable, and misunderstood sources of life. Collecting them can be a way to share community and it can even be profitable.

Understanding them and where they come from is paramount to grasping the nature of things we all take for granted.
