Deeper dimension…

There is a much deeper dimension to life than what most people think or consider.

[These are a form of bracket fungus called Polypores on a fallen log (with some leaves of fall upon them).  Most Polypores inhabit tree trunks or branches consuming the wood, but some soil-inhabiting species form myycorrhia – a symbiotic relationship with the roots of trees, wherein they blend with the roots intracellularly (i.e., within the wood-root cells) or extracellulary.   Polypores and their relatives, corticioid fungi, consist as part of the most important agents of wood decay. Thus they play a very significant role in nutrient and carbon cycles of forest ecosystems.]
