Hi Merlin. I bought your book for my kindle and sat up till 2:00 in the morning reading it. I got as far as all the introduction, and look forward to read the rest of the book.
I might get the actual book too, but at the moment it is not available. (Sorry, the paperback is, and I ordered it just now).
So far your adventures in the jungle are fascinating, and your description of your research work with all the specimens are equally so.

That we are all little planets for other life forms is a thought I have often had, although it is a bit creepy.

That fungi has intelligence is something we read about in January this year, see here:
Welcoming Louie Schwartzberg of Fantastic Fungi as our featured author for January 2020

What you mention about the Physarum, not possessing anything like a nervous system and yet showing "intelligence" by forming a network almost identical to Tokyo's existing railway network in an experiment by Japanese scientists is amazing.

In similar experiments slime moulds have recreated the motorway network of the United States and of the Roman roads network in Central Europe, and, blimey! Of the floor plan of a IKEA store!

There is an intelligence in nature, whatever we think intelligence is or comes from. That is my own conclusion, but let me read on and discover all your fascinating tales of - of all things, mould, slime, fungi, the things house wives use soap and scrubbing brushes on!

GG.
