A crazy hypothesis: mushrooms could be extraterrestrial species coming from the Universe to colonize the Earth. When you look in a dark night and see the unknown stars scattered in the sky, it’s easy to think of the universe as infinite. Perhaps we will have to spend our lives asking ourselves about the true nature of the dimension of the universe. It is a mystery, like many others, that comes with an exciting attraction that draws our attention, but never offers real answers.
Whether you struggle with the great universe or how life has appeared on Earth, our existence multiplies with a bizarre turning of nature that we can not explain or understand. These questions can disturb us and feed us for our entire lives – but they are also a key part of human experience. Our planet is full of trees, herbs, birds, and bees. It also has a lot of bacteria. Everything is life and they all reproduce to preserve their lives.
But how did life begin in the world? How has a mass of cells moved from an inert collection of organic molecules into a being that is sometimes even intelligent?
The short answer is: we do not know exactly how life has appeared. There is a chance that, 4 billion years ago, aliens escaped a few microbes and let it run wild. And of course, many religions have supernatural explanations for the origins of life. Many scientists believe that life is a natural progression for planets containing the ingredients required for biologies, such as carbon, hydrogen, oxygen and other fundamental blocks. With the right spark – say, a flash of lightning – these foundation stones slowly develop into cell walls and DNA that are suited for reproducible life. Researchers continue to perform such experiments in laboratories, hoping to discover the formula to make life.
In my life of an amateur researcher in the field of paranormal events, I have encountered many insane theories of conspiracy, one more incredible than another. Well, among them is the one that I describe in the following article: namely that … mushrooms could be highly advanced alien species that would have invaded Earth. Are mushrooms an alien species that invaded the Earth and conquered the rest of the known universe? It seems like a crazy idea, but before rejecting this idea, let’s explore this possibility.
Did you know that mushrooms grow in a special area of theirs, away from other plants and animals?
They do not have chlorophyll, take oxygen and produce carbon dioxide, having a wide variety of shapes and colours.
There are 75 mushroom species that shine in the dark.
Did you know that the largest living organism ever found is the “honey fungus” in eastern Oregon (USA), covering an area of 2,200 acres?
But what do the mushrooms have with the stellar journeys? Compared to other forms of life on our planet, mushroom spores are almost perfect for space travel. They can survive in the vacuum and are resistant to extremely cold temperatures. The cover of the mushroom spore is one of the most resistant in nature. It is made of chitin, a highly resistant material.
Interestingly, mushroom spores have been found in all atmospheric layers. Their outer layer looks as if it’s metallic, allowing it to reflect ultraviolet light. In addition, the spores can be hibernating for a long time and still germinate. It seems that mushrooms have found a way to survive under the harsh conditions of outer space.
- Every year we spend billions of dollars to find alien life, but can we recognize it?
- And if the mushrooms were anything but extraterrestrial species that were highly evolved and found a way to modify their DNA so they could explore the whole universe?
These mushrooms are very resistant and easily adapt to the most environmentally friendly conditions. Under certain circumstances, mushroom spores could travel from one planet to another. This could allow them to colonize every planet that would provide them with oxygen. We have a preconceived idea that an alien should look like us: head, hands, feet. If these mushrooms were life-forms in a smart way, then they might consider us humans as inferior and less evolved species.
It is true that until now, as far as we know, no mushroom has written a 1,000-page novel or composed any musical symphony, but perhaps they have another way of expressing their creativity. What we know so far about mushrooms is that they have created a vast neural network of mycelia, very similar to the neural network of the human brain. Could these mushrooms have their own version of the Internet? Research on fungi has increased a lot in recent years, so it would be very interesting to learn more about these possible alien visitors.
What do you think: mushrooms come from outer space, are our space masters, or are they just good as a roasting lining?
