Paul is absolutely brilliant and when I booked him as a speaker for PV2 I knew that, I but I don’t think I realized how brilliant he actually was.
He is a true genius and he over-delivered in this talk exceeding everyone’s expectations which were already very high.
This talk is dense. This talk is both mind expanding and mind blowing.
The subject is BioDiversity is BioSecurity: Strengthening Foodwebs using Mycological Solutions.
Paul’s central premise is that habitats have immune systems, just like people, and mushroom forming fungi are the foundation of the foodwebs of land based organisms.
Our close evolutionary relationship to fungi can be the basis for novel pairings that lead to greater sustainability and immune enhancement. As w e are now fully engaged in the 6th Major Extinction (“6 X”) on planet Earth, our biospheres are quickly changing, eroding the life support systems that have allowed humans to ascend. Unless we put into action policies and technologies that can cause a course correction in the very near future, species diversity will continue to plummet, with humans not only being the primary cause, but one of the victims.
What can we do?
Fungi, particularly mushrooms, offer some powerful, practical solutions, which can be put into practice now. Paul will discuss his groundbreaking research utilizing their cellular networks to create molecular bridges governing the evolution of sustainable habitats. The implications of his research are far-reaching and could spark a paradigm shift to a better future.
This presentation was recorded live at PV2 in March 2015.
