    I think ancient predecessors of humans had more neurotransmitters going than we do today and that it acted as a catalyst for brain development. As we evolved ,the need for these transmitters waned and they slowly disappeared leaving behind the receptors without the firing mechanism. While it may be possible and likely that some contact with fungi occurred I don't think enough continuous exposure would have happened to cause such a rapid change. Add to that the fact we have both persons who enjoy fungi and those who fear it, and it's more likely ancient man would have felt the latter than the former. My opinion anyway.

    I am interested in and open to the Stoned Ape Hypothesis, but I think it's also possible that the sudden increase in human intelligence and brain complexity can be explained simply by developing the ability walk upright. All of a sudden, the mouth, which for quadrupeds must be available at all times to explore the world, to carry things, and to attack, is freed up completely to explore vocal noises, and to develop ever-subtler vocal noises which allows for complex human language. And then our hands are freed to explore their potential: no longer used for walking, they become ever more subtle and complicated (few animals have a hand as dexterous as a humans'). This allow the hand to start building ever more complex tools. The hand, after the early hominids began to walk upright, became very complex, and it makes sense, because now the hand has nothing to do BUT invent things. So the Stoned Ape Hypothesis will have to take this into consideration.

    To all the commenters that say no to fungal intelligence:
    Start here, I know it's Wikipedia, but it is common knowledge.
    Not sure where all the hate for the fact that we don't know much about the World around us came from, but Mr. Stamets is speaking on some groundbreaking topics, we'd do well to listen and apply critical thinking to it!

    I think Jordan Peterson's idea that human cranial development was driven forward by sexually selective females that pick their mates from the tops of hierarchies established by competition amongst males is a much better explanation. We really don't understand much about epigenetics at this point, especially in relation to the development of the human brain, so it's a pretty big leap of faith to give this theory as much credit as it's given here. It could have some truth to it, but then again Paul literally calls the hypothesis "untestable."

  • denijane
    denijane 4 days ago

    Graham Hancock also claims the evolution of the brain as we know it was kick-started by hallucinogenic plants. I tend to agree with them. As anyone who creates stuff for living will tell you, the biggest problem is the beginning. The moment when you have to fight inertia, fight trivialities, to get a moment (or more) of peace and quiet and start thinking in a non-trivial way. Nowadays we just sit and lock the door and turn off the net and start brainstorming, or just wait, but that's because we're fed and warm and safe. If you lived in pre-historic times, that's not the case. You were almost never fed, warm and safe in the same time, you had to overcome a lot of distractions which may have been crucial for your survival. That's not given. But if you take a hallucinogenic, your survival instinct drops, your distractions die out and suddenly your brain discovers it can function in other modes and do new interesting things - like dreaming and analysing data and planning ahead. So who knows, maybe that's how it happened.

    So yes this is to round two.Brittini Jean Cartwright claims to be a hoe but she has a boyfriend that has a little dick and who is a one pump chump. She met me and threw herself at me and we had sex in less of ten minutes of meeting. We had unprotected sex all over Sacramento from 11pm to 7:30am I paid for her gas protected her and bought her flowers two days later. She claims she is a hoe, whore or slut but she is embarrassed that she had sex with me, an innocent sex offender. She told me that a if I would of hid the truth from her, a relationship could of been possible, well you have been hiding for quite some time. I don’t lie to those I care about. I have nothing to hide that’s why I ask people to read my paperwork. P.S Your boyfriend is a one pump chump because you were all over me like bees on honey.

    So if this is not evidence of intelligent design, I don't know what is. That said, Intelligent design doesn't require a holy being to be responsible. This also suggests that we live in a simulation, because how could fungus be intelligent, the parts of the cells act independently for their function, and the culmination of efforts for each part of cells result in a combined effort to organize in a way that benefits the total community of cells. This is insane. Also, Paul S. annunciates the word Millions, in much the same way C. Sagan used to say Billions and Billions.

    I think a lot of people mistake the word "intelligence" in this context with being "concious", this is not what the guy is saying, intelligence just means it can solve problems here, not meaning it is sentient. Just like in artificial intelligence a lot of people often keep thinking it always means it's a andriod that is self concious but that's not the case, it just means you can train it by feeding it some data, and then it will adapt itself and solve problems in an efficient manner without you needing to hard code the algorithms.
    In this case, it is very similar with AI because the planet has been "training" these fungals with "evolution algorithms", meaning only the offsprings of the fungal that use efficient ways will survive, this is also a very common AI algorithm. And the whole planet acts as a testing/training/input field for this training, of course fungals are gonna have efficient ways to manage themselves. The only difference is in computer AI we use silicon semi-conductors to do the "calculations", but on the planet it uses various materials to do the "calculations" and is done on a planet scale, it's like the planet is acting like a super-duper computer for training this "fungal AI".

  • Kai Keeper
    Kai Keeper 6 days ago

    In a way the plant is kinda like an AI, which the planet has being "training" on the scale of the planet through "evolution algorithms" for a very long time, to find the most efficient way for the Fungal to manage its resources.

    Also... yeah stop partying with mushrooms. If you're into spiritual experiences, healing yourself, or generally using them as a tool I'm not going to try to stop you from diving deep into that well, but just to party and have a good time? That is a terrible idea. It's too easy to have things go a bit south and with perception so dramatically altered anything can happen. Please avoid that and use whatever substances you're into with responsibility, trust me that won't make you a "bitch" or "wussy" or whatever derogatory word peer pressure uses to compromise your judgement.
    I'd like to see more scientific research done (so we can get rid of a lot of the hippy nonsense psuedo-science that gets spouted and back what we do know up with real data) and more acceptance of the fact that humans use substances and it should not be stigmatized or treated like a live hand grenade. It's a knife. Every adult has used a knife (if you haven't and you're an adult, you might consider your life choices up to this point... seriously... how did you eat???) and we've all got a fairly good handle how to safely enjoy the benefits of knives both recreational and functional. (I throw knives for fun and I guess you could count wooden/foam knife combat if you wanted to? I dunno, but you get the idea here.)
