Of Mushrooms and Robots
What do mushrooms and robots have in common?
Mushrooms, magic ones, have the capacity to connect directly to our psyche through some hard to understand primal connection to our brain chemistry. And the wisdom they bring, if you want to call it that, is a form of tearing down old assumptions.
Robots, fictional or not, are mirrors of human experience, and have the capacity to challenge our understanding of ourselves.
Natural + artificial.
Body + mind.
What do mushrooms and robots have in common? They are both instruments for mind expansion.
