Last updated about 1 year ago. What is this?

To Sophie Strand, mycelium is the deeply intricate, sprawling network of fungal threads that serves as the living, breathing tapestry of the forest floor. It's the hidden architect of ecosystems, weaving an underground web that connects trees, plants, and microorganisms in a symbiotic dance of nutrient exchange and communication. For Strand, mycelium is more than just the vegetative part of a fungus; it’s an emblem of interdependence and resilience, illustrating how life flourishes through cooperation and subtlety. Underneath the surface, mycelium whispers the language of the earth—reminding us that existence thrives not in isolation, but in the artful embrace of communal interconnection.
