I would have never heard of it if it hadn’t been for Scarlet Imprint’s post of it on Twitter. I made a crack not long ago about how they should have called the drive on the new Star Trek show, Discovery, the McKenna drive, because Terrence McKenna often talked about interplanetary and inter-dimensional mycelium networks. Turns out that the scientist/character on the show who was successful at getting it to work was named for the living genius from whom they got the idea, mycologist Paul Stamets.
I knew there was someone by this name but had no idea that he had a website, or how absolutely brilliant a scientist he is. Please visit the link to his website, here or to the right of this post, and enjoy the podcast!
