Evolving roughly 810 million years ago, fungi are the primary reason for the biodiversity we see today. Put another way, without fungus, land plants would not have evolved. And without plants, there would be no forests, which means no you and no me.
The blue planet would look very different. Without the verdant valleys and lush forests, it would be a barren landscape devoid of life.
Hard to fathom, right? But this isn’t purely theory. Renowned biologist and author, Merlin Sheldrake posits that “without fungi, there would be no land plants.” Imagine. We would still be fish, or something else entirely.
First land plants
Fungus, which is a kingdom in its own right, played a pivotal role in plants’ evolution from water to land. The fossil record indicates that the first plants colonized land nearly 500 million years ago during the Cambrian period of the Paleozoic era.
That means these master decomposers have provided plants with essential soil nutrients to thrive for nearly half a billion years. As a result, plants grew stronger and more abundantly paving the way shortly after for the first multicellular animals.
And then there’s us humans with just about 200,000 years under our belts. As the new kid on the block, the mushroom and all it stands for, is an ancient treasure.
Mushroom spiritual meaning
With all this in mind, our fascination with the mushroom is logical. Without ancient fungi, we would not exist. For this reason, the mushroom naturally serves as a symbol for longevity, prosperity, transformation and rebirth.
Heaven on earth
What’s more, fungus has improved our lives in ways unbeknownst to most. For instance, these spore-producing organisms play a central role in making bread, wine, beer, and many cheeses. So fungus first gave us life and lets us divulge in a certain heaven on earth too!
Cannabis root fungus
It’s clear that fungus has a long history of turning the Earth green which extends to the beloved cannabis plant. Specifically, the Mycorrhizal Fungi triples the root system size of the cannabis plant. Moreover, this helps the marijuana plant produce healthy, high quality and dank bud for your smoking pleasure.
