The Stoned Ape Theory and a Biologically Appropriate Singularity
I've envisioned a self-sustaining temple of humanity... I've wandered the dream palace of our mind and conversed amicably with three-eyed plant priests in a mycelium-rhizo-mausoleum. Figments of our evolutionary imagination all say the same thing. Humanity will merge with fungi and plants. The mushroom kingdom will be a plantae paradise. Phyto and fungi based energy will transform our way of life.
Your Next Electrical Source: Bionic Mushrooms
Just add some cyanobacteria and mix.
“In this case, our system—this bionic mushroom—produces electricity. By integrating cyanobacteria that can produce electricity, with nanoscale materials capable of collecting the current, we were able to better access the unique properties of both, augment them, and create an entirely new functional bionic system.”

Plants, Electrified: Scientists Just Grew Conductive Wires Inside Real Roses
Stavrinidou's research team tested countless conductive materials before they came across a winner. Their aim was to get plants to soak up materials that could later harden into wires through the plants xylem, the vein-like system a plant uses to transport water and nutrients. However, most materials (for example, two molecules called pyrrole and aniline) either simply wouldn't uptake, proved toxic when it came down to the hardening phase, or would clog the xylem. In the end, the winning material was a transparent, organic polymer that basically acts like conductive plastic. It's a flavor of a material called PEDOT—short for poly(3,4-ethylenedioxythiophene).

AS we evolve, humanity will need to stop using entropic energy systems. Instead of death, we will use life to generate fuel. Imagine a living organism that is also a vehicle. Imagine a home that is also a garden? Fungi & plants will give us fuel and food, clean our air, and medicate us. Wow, wow, medicate, RT? Yes, medicate. See, collectively, humanity is schizophrenic.
The symptoms of Schizophrenia may vary depending on the individual and they usually include:
Hallucinations and illusions
Lack of emotional expression
^Yep, that's the human family. Hence why we need to accelerate and expand consciousness. We need a noo-morphic phyto-fungi-cracy, a fully realized living singularity.
Turning algae into diesel fuel
The Department of Energy has said algae holds the potential to produce billions of gallons per year of renewable diesel, gasoline and jet fuels. And that contribution could prove crucial to meeting Renewable Fuel Standards. By 2022, 36 billion gallons of transportation fuels sold in the U.S. must come from blended sources. Only 15 million of those can come from corn-based ethanol, leaving a sizeable gap.

Psilocybin Could Be Legal for Therapy by 2021
The psychoactive ingredient in magic mushrooms could soon be legal to use in a clinical setting
For the first time in U.S. history, a psychedelic drug is on the fast track to getting approved for treating depression by the federal government. Late last month, Compass Therapeutics, a U.K.-based company that researches and develops mental health treatments, announced the FDA granted them what’s called a “breakthrough therapy designation” for their trials into psilocybin, the psychoactive ingredient in psychedelic mushrooms.

Information transmission in microbial and fungal communication: from classical to quantum
Bacteria understands that being united they stand, divided they misunderstand. We accumulate major portion of bacterial quorum sensing mechanism (experimentally, theoretically) and quorum sensing regulated behaviors such as extracellular polymeric substances and biofilm development, swarming, virulence together with recently discovered potassium ion-channel mediated communication system. In case of bacterial electrical communication, we still don’t know what are the exact informations bacteria can process through this mechanism. Stochastic fluctuation (noise) can also play a very significant role in biochemical conversation. This ongoing research on bacterial collective behavior is highly significant for our every day life as we are surrounded by bacterial world. Even, the numbers of bacterial cells are ten times more than human cells in our body. Thus different kind of bacterial infections are quite common and can be life threatening. (National Institutes of Health 2007) stated
"Biofilms are clinically important, accounting for over 80 percent of microbial infections in the body. Examples include: infections of oral soft tissues, teeth and dental implants; middle ear; gastrointestinal tract; urogenital tract; airway/lung tissue; eye; urinary tract prostheses; peritoneal membrane and peritoneal dialysis catheters, in-dwelling catheters for hemodialysis and for chronic administration of chemotherapeutic agents (Hickman catheters); cardiac implants such as pacemakers, prosthetic heart valves, ventricular assist devices, and synthetic vascular grafts and stents; prostheses, internal fixation devices, percutaneous sutures; and tracheal and ventilator tubing.”
We also demonstrate some key facts of fungal quorum sensing system, which has a major role in agricultural research and food science and technology. Synthetic bacterial communication can reveal different unseen phenomenon in biochemical communication, which is applicable in biotechnology, biocomputing and medical sciences. Bacterial nanowires, ion-channels and quantum approach (including quantum information) of this conversation game are till now has been explored. Researchers can design their experiments based on the proposed quantum phenomena. We extend the subject matter with a new perspective of quantum synthetic system and aim towards the cellular quantum Turing test, which can be one of the major challenges for future research in this context and hopefully will be able to disclose unfinished symphony of microbial communication.
