Aggregated Macro-Organism Systems:  
How H. sapiens can Become the Ultimate Keystone Organism in our Environment

James Wieser

In this seminar, we will discuss how to create a macro-organism ecosystem from scratch to remediate your postconsumer waste. This allows one to participate in succession and create abundance like every other organism on earth (except H. sapiens, currently). A number of tools will be discussed to meet this goal:

  1. Mutualism is a well-known natural relationship/phenomenon. Mutualism is the way two organisms of different species exist in a relationship in which each individual benefits from the activity of the other. The highest order of mutualism is a service to service relationship. Strict service-service interactions are very rare, for reasons that are far from clear, according to J. Ollerton’s 2006 "Biological Barter." But being clever monkeys, human beings can understand this type of relationship and replicate it. If one were to put their mind to it. How to use a “rifle” approach to create relationships with specific organisms – mushrooms in particular. See “Why Not Mutualism?”

  2. The Use of Biodiversity as a Tool to Create Abundance – How to use a “shotgun” approach to create relationships with systems of organisms. Bugs and microbes in particular.

  3. How did nature manage to grow plants before humans evolved and showed them how to do it? Plants relationships to the system as macro-organisms.

  4. The Animalia & Soil Microbiota Feedback Loop Theory – How the soil system takes into account the needs of large free roaming animals (end users) not directly attached to the soil. 

  5. Aggregated Macroorganism Systems – How bugs, plants, mushroomsSystem operates on whole, raw post consumer "waste" exclusively. Know your place in the system from nature’s point of view, not yours! The only issues humans face are perception issues, nothing more.

About the Teacher
James Wieser is a self-educated Experimental and Theoretical Mycologist & Integrated Natural Systems Engineer. Published Carbon Negative, Carbon Negative, the 2nd Agricultural & the 2nd Director of the Center for Experimental and Theoretical Integrated Mycology, Denver (CETIM-Denver). He is a leading edge researcher in the introduction of mushrooms into our suburban habitat, working with 95 species in 2017. Specializing in the creation of customized mycelium (aka; mutualistic partners to human beings) for multiple applications, in particular, for the advancement of Carbon Negative Agriculture/ Forestry. Using mushrooms (the “brains” of the rhizosphere) and Biomimicry to sequester CO2 in the soil to create nutrient dense food rather than air pollution as nature intended. He is developing techniques that allow mushrooms to pre-adapt to the habitat into which they will be introduced, allowing for non-sterile propagation techniques.  That means that anyone can create a habitat for mushrooms at home, utilize the mushrooms in enhancing the fertility of your soil by sequestering nutrients and harvest mushrooms for eating/medicinal purposes. It’s called “Natural Literacy”, how an individual can understand, own and implement the solutions to climate change.
