Humanity has always been involved in a symbiotic relationship with plants.  Fungi are more than a delicate, intricate and beautiful life form.  Ethnomycology (the study of human-fungal interactions) has consciousness expanding qualities, and therefore deep roots embedded in the religious traditions, writings and indigenous knowledge of mankind.
