LOGBOOK OF FLYING UDDER
August 10, 2023
Alberschwende-Lingenau | A
FLYING UDDER elevation for the potential of fungi as future pointing and natural solutions for many current challenges. Their networks and metabolic functions are capable of correcting numerous man-made imbalances and pollutions. Mushroom tissues are building materials of our future, not only for the health of our soils, bodies and souls, but also in architecture and design. The fungi communicate their presence on earth with 50 million tons of spores per sun orbit - that corresponds to the weight of 500,000 blue whales. The biodiversity of fungi exceeds the estimated number of all plant species by a factor of ten. They were the first on land and will continue to inspire the consciousness of mammals in many ways.
