Virtual Mycelium Precense / collective virtual neural rewiring

From Our Networks 2047

We are excited to introduce Myconets, our new way of speaking-with and hearing-from Mycellial Networks. After much tinkering, we now understand that within our new connective computational paradigm, in which we recognize the already advanced languages of other species, mycellia can have a voice of their own. And there are so many diverse speakers to hear from in the mycologcial world. We don't have to compute in echo-chambered boxes anymore, we compute with the superstructures of the mycellial networked world.

The earliest work on this project started in roughly 2018, https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/30443330/ ... but was still very focused on adopting mycellia into the object-oriented chip-designs of human-centered computers. What would it mean for network infrastructures to serve mycellia, for example? What are the computational needs of the hyphae? To become a connected network and befriend the fellow networks under our soil, we needed to answer these questions. We have finally found a way to translate their languages into our own understanding, and they have a rich world of soil types that they learn to think with. We'll share some of their ways of thinking, their advice to us, and more.
