._SYSTEM_.

Links. Names. Translations.  

“Unlike trees or their roots, the rhizome connects any point to any other point, and its traits are not necessarily linked to traits of the same nature; it brings into play very different regimes of signs, and even non-sign states". (A Thousand Plateaus: Capitalism and Schizophrenia –Gilles Deleuze and Félix Guattari)

 Mycena interrupta, Philosopher Falls, Tasmania, (photo on field)   "Mycena interrupta is a saprotrophic mushroom, found on forest litter in the damper areas of south-east Australia, New Caledonia, New Zealand and Chile in Eucalyptus and Nothofagus forests. Presumably a very ancient and widespread parent "Mycena" split into separate lineages, in Pangaean times, with the various lineages evolving separately in Gondwanan and non-Gondwanan areas".
