You've been sitting there awhile, huh? Take a moment to relax and loosen the muscles in your neck and shoulders. Then sit up straight, flex your spine, and relax your back muscles. You'll appreciate it when you don't ache later on. β˜€οΈ

β€œSimard specializes in the underground relationships of trees. Her research shows that below the earth are vast networks of roots working with fungi to move water, carbon, and nutrients among trees of all species. These complex, symbiotic networks mimic human neural and social networks. They even have mother trees at various centers, managing information flow, and the interconnectedness helps a slew of live things fight disease and survive together.”

It’s funny. I’ve seen a bunch of people post that meme with the long monologue about how β€œI hate small talks [sic]. I wanna talk about science, death, aliens, sex, the meaning of life...” etc. But every time I try to start a conversation with them about the heat death of the Universe or how the Great Filter could doom us all, they stop talking to me...

My #terrarium is still going strong after 6 months. Today the worm showed itself for the first time. Also pissy the isopod is hard at work.
