>>7847728 >Once they hit the mainstream there will be huge development of biotechnologies and biomimicry. That's what concerns me; there won't be. Most of it will be dedicated to evolving fungi, since they already compose a complete apparatus. Rather than merely mimicking nature, it'll be easier to simply use existing nature, but breed it for a specific purpose. It'll work wonders on pollution, but I'm afraid it'll stagnate at that point and we won't have true information control. If we just stick to controlled breeding, we won't really understand the actual chemistry behind it. We'll just assume nature is magic because fungi and the research angle might become irrelevant.
Can you hear me? We're not sure how this message will be interpreted by the dream state your mind is in. You've been in a mycotoxic induced coma for 10 years that was brought on by the xenogenic fungi you encountered at T̝̻̘͖͂̊o̶͇͚̱̱ͨ̈͂̉ͦ ̷͍̱̪̮̫̐͆ͭͪ̌̉̀ͬ͞ḯ̷̬̲̠̜̬̼̣̽́̄ͨ̀̀̚n̷͚̹͇̱̯̲ͦ͞v̵̫̞̥̻ͪ͌ớ̴͓͔ͣ̈͞k̵̛̻͚̖͕̣ͯ͒̈ͥͨͮ͢e̿ͣ̃͋͗̅̈̎. We're experimenting with new a new procedure to reach you and others like you. The dream world is communicative or shared if you prefer. So if you can hear this and understand it please let the others in there with you know we're doing all that we can and we haven't given up on you.
A couple years back I took a lecture from Gary Strobel, and he talked about how he is working on an endophytic fungi that produced diesel hydrocarbons. This means with some bioengineering this fungus can be used to produce diesel from plant waste materials.
He also talked about fungal volatile materials that has shown incredible antibacterial activity. This stuff can be used in place of antibiotics, but obviously more research is needed in this area.
We've taken fungi ability to fight bacteria and weaponized it claiming the discovery for ourselves only we didn't make the weapon. The fungi did all the work. Now that bacteria are adapting and turning into super bacteria we're unable to create a new weapon to combat them. Maybe instead of trying to recreate what we didn't create in the first place we should put fungi to work and encourage them to create super fungi. Bacteria and fungi have a shorter lifespan than us, and if you pardon the meme word, are able to evolve faster. Why not just get them to breed really fast, give them a bacterial invader to adapt to, and see what happens.
>>7852423 antibiotics are enzymes, I was talking about volatile oils.
>>7852841 there are such studies where they basically mutate organisms with mutajens and look for new compounds, but doing this for antibitoics would require someone to be researching about new antibiotics in the first place. because antibiotic compounds are not very profitable, not many people are looking into new antibiotics now.
>>7853052 This is basically the plot to Nausicaa. Are you telling me that movie wasn't just a protect the environment PSA? The science is real?! Are you saying killing mankind with deadly fungi that consume toxic waste is a practical solution to land restoration?
>>7852988 every heterotroph feeds on decay. metabolizing shit equals decay. decay is just bacteria metabolising stuff.
>>7853052 partially true, some fungi metabolise petroleum products like diesel and such, and some fungi accumulate heavy metals, allowing you to remove the metal contamination with the fungi. however, the current method of heavy metal contamination removal is through plants. I've heard sunflowers being used widely.
>>7853096 for many of the nasty toxic chemicals the current leading way of bioremediation includes bacteria.
>>7853096 >Are you saying killing mankind with deadly fungi that consume toxic waste is a practical solution to land restoration? Absolutely not. You'd need an entirely different type of fungus for that. Toxic waste doesn't have quite the same composition as the human body.
>>7853126 >metabolizing shit equals decay. Only when you're metabolizing organic components. When you're literally feeding on the minerals in a rock, it's not a form of decay. It'd be erosion, if that.
