“There has been an exciting new biological discovery inside the tomb of the Chernobyl reactor. Like out of some B-grade sci fi movie, a robot sent into the reactor discovered a thick coat of black slime growing on the walls. Since it is highly radioactive in there, scientists didn’t expect to find anything living, let alone thriving. The robot was instructed to obtain samples of the slime, which it did, and upon examination…the slime was even more amazing than was thought at first glance.

This slime, a collection of several fungi actually, was more than just surviving in a radioactive environment, it was actually using gamma radiation as a food source. Samples of these fungi grew significantly faster when exposed to gamma radiation at 500 times the normal background radiation level. The fungi appear to use melanin, a chemical found in human skin as well, in the same fashion as plants use chlorophyll. That is to say, the melanin molecule gets struck by a gamma ray and its chemistry is altered. This is an amazing discovery, no one had even suspected that something like this was possible.

Aside from its novelty value, this discovery leads to some interesting speculation and potential research. Humans have melanin molecules in their skin cells, does this mean that humans are getting some of their energy from radiation? This also implies there could be organisms living in space where ionizing radiation is plentiful. I’ve always been a big panspermia proponent, the idea that life did not originate on Earth but is actually common in the cosmos. Organisms that can live in space certainly gives more credence to this idea.

Possibly this could also be used to create plants or mushrooms that could grow in space, serving as a food source for space travellers. Maybe these fungi could be modified and used somehow to clean up radiation contaminated environments. There’s quite a few of those, in fact the disposal of radioactive waste is still a huge and unsolved problem. Now the fungi couldn’t actually eat the radioactive isotopes, I’m not saying that, but if they can live in radioactive environments they might be used to somehow scour out or concentrate the radioactive isotopes in such a way as to facilitate their clean up.

Imagine, there’s fallout from a nuclear accident and what do the guys in suits do? They show up, spray mushroom spores over everything, and a few weeks later the mushrooms are harvested and disposed of while the contaminated area is now radiation free. It would certainly be useful, the picture at the top shows the still abandoned town of Priyat, Ukraine. It was built to house the workers at the Chernobyl nuclear power plant, and was evacuated within hours of the accident.” source: https://unitedcats.wordpress.com/2007/05/29/major-biological-discoveryinside-the-chernobyl-reactor/

Ok. So awhile back scientists discovered plants could communicate with each other through fungi in their root systems. 

“Researchers in the UK have discovered an extensive underground network connecting plants by their roots, serving as a complex interplant communication system… a “plant Internet,” if you will. One organism is responsible for this amazing biochemical highway: a type of fungus called mycorrhizae. Researchers from the University of Aberdeen devised a clever experiment to isolate the effects of these extensive underground networks. They grew sets of broad bean plants, allowing some to develop mycorrhizal nets, but preventing them in others. They also eliminated the plants’ normal through-the-air communication by covering the plants with bags. Then they infested some of the plants with aphids. The results were remarkable.” source:  http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2013/08/10/mycorrhizae-plant-communication.aspx

So here we have a strange new fungi found at Chernobyl. I wonder what the message is? What is being communicated to/from the plant kingdom around it? It eats radiation. Feeds on it. Thrives on it. Will the health and balance of our plant be determined by the plant kingdoms? While we drop the ball in getting things done, the plant kingdoms around us are already on it, and will continue the job until the balance is resorted. Why? because they care about their survival. We say we do, but do we really? I mean really when no one is looking? The plant kingdom is wise. Tree elders. Emotionally stable. Spiritually strong. Mentally clear. Physically ok with what they are, able to stay still for their whole lives. You wait for saviors to appear, while you have some in your own back yard. What we normally call weeds, hold great power and medicine. My Grandmother Miriam taught me that. My Shima Maria continues too. 

I believe this discovery is extremely important. It will teach humanity something grand about the world around us. How nature coordinates itself globally already. If we tap into that stream of consciousness we will find a global state of mind that already exists. But it is not a manmade state of mind, it is not a computer generated state of mind, or an ET state of mind. It is the plant world state of mind. A world that responds carefully to what is around it, in its space, it can see into you better then any oracle. It is a kind of oracle. In the plant kingdom this kind of oracle is omnipotent. It thrives and lives within all. This is what we share in common. Humanity and plants. Among other things.  It’s intelligence is better then ours. They also never do anything except be themselves, through it all. A rose doesn’t wish to be a lily. An oak doesn’t pine to be a pine. They thrive in all their glory because they are always only what they are. This makes their medicine strong. No issues leaking out, no psyche cracks to fall into or dig up. No trying to fix other things that don’t belong to them. Just a simple knowing of who they are, and they stand still in their roots as such until death. Maybe now and then someone or some thing will come by and visit it, maybe even see it for what it is. Maybe even have an exchange of love, if lucky nowadays. Imagine if we all understood the realms around us here on Earth like we understand the sunday night football lineups. Or the next big sale at MACYS. How many of us walk around with our roundup killing them where they stand (not my readers! I know you all know Monsanto is a big fat no no) but what about your neighbors? Where is the honor?

The Voynich Manuscript has taught me to appreciate the magic and wonder of the plant kingdoms. My psyche has been busy soaking up it’s magic and  my dreaming is showing me where to go next. I know with all my heart this medicine is one of the elements we on this planet are out of synch with. Big time. This was not always the case as centuries ago this powerful medicine was known and respected, and today still is by many indigenous cultures. But mainstream highly ‘civilized’ cultures have lost their roots with the knowledge for the most part. With the exception of a small minority who are working to bring it back. But either way, whether we know it or not the plant kingdom goes on doing what it does, whether you pay attention or not. Whether you are on FB or not. It is out there. Working around the clock with nothing else in its way other then being true to itself and those who do the same. Taking care of our planets out of control self sabotaging spoiled minded humans. Taking care of us without any judgement. Balancing the scales. Working effortlessly. Without one ounce of whine. And they still love and support us when we spend time in nature. We are charged, revitalized, cleared, loved, held, inspired by a realm that holds the magic. Powerful in its purity. 

I am in awe of this discovery of a powerful radiation eating fungi, and thankful for it. The plant kingdom has given us a great gift. It will help with Japan. It will help with all other sites and it has given us a solution to a problem naturally. When will mankind learn to trust again? 

And if this is not all enough to get you to think try this on for size. Yale students discover a rare plastic eating fungus in the Ecuadorian rainforest.

I believe in the healing power of the Earth. And all its realms. I believe in the Cosmic Conspiracy.
