Increasingly, we are finding that the web of communication between different species of animals and plants is quite complex and can be described as spheres having much broader influences than we had previously supposed. For generations, people looked at forests and saw individual trees. But what they didn’t see was that the trees were connected below the ground by fungal mycelia that allowed nutrients to flow from one tree to another, as well as other chemical messages. In effect, the fungal mycelia are like the internet connecting trees within a forest, allowing the trees to “talk” to one another.

Ecological communities, or biosemiospheres, are made up of many different species of plants and animals that depend on each other for the flow of energy. There are herbivores, carnivores, detritivores, predators and prey, primary producers such as plants and trees, and the interactions of all the members of an ecological community can be modeled by the flow of energy within that community. While we look at all of the component species of an ecological community and see solid objects in the form of plants and animals, quantum theory tells us that these are really bundles of energy within a broader energetic field, currently hypothesized as the Higgs Field that connects everything. From the perspective of quantum theory, we can look at all of the species as bundles of energy that they exchange as they communicate, eat each other, die, and decompose. In that sense, a biosemiosphere is really a quantum biosemiosphere.

This book will provide you with a lot of delights. First, there is the genius of taking such a breathtaking large view of the biotic world and placing it into semiotic and quantum terms. Then there is a rigorous philosophic discussion of why this is important and why we must take it seriously. Finally, there is a sprinkling of allusions throughout, that are a delight to chase down and savor, the way that you would savor a fine wine over an intellectual conversation with friends who think outside the box.
