Zoom call with long time colleagues about the development of business cases based on changes in agricultural and agronomic practices that would likely improve the performance and productivity of farming operations in the American Midwest. Topics included: holistic management; cooperation-related traits in crops; and food waste reduction. Had we kept going we could have delved into countless related topics like farm to plate (food supply chain) track and trace blockchain systems ;-)
Here’s another one of Astral Prospecting’s mushroom pics — a turkey tail (Trametes versicolor) …
Its antioxidative properties are the subject of ongoing research. Because Trametes versicolor contains Polysaccharide-K (PSK), an extract from the mushrooms is used in Japan as an “adjunct therapy” for cancer treatment.

This volume, covering the first nine years of the ministry of Bahá’u’lláh in ‘Akká, is an attempt to catch a glimpse of this mighty Revelation. But how puny and feeble are the mind and vision of man, how poorly they equip him to venture into the arena of Divine Revelation which is far above his ken. It is obvious that we are unable to fathom this deep ocean of the Word of God in this age. We can only pass over the surface. The aim of this volume is to describe some of the contents of the Tablets of Bahá’u’lláh. To achieve this, the author has followed the same pattern as in the two preceding volumes. He has outlined some of the main topics of a Tablet and elaborated on certain points which are in his opinion helpful for understanding some basic truths of the Faith. The aim has not been, however, to write a book of history. It is only to provide a background to the revelation of the Word of God that the author has dwelt at some length on the life of Bahá’u’lláh, the circumstances of His imprisonment in the barracks and later in ‘Akká, and has also given brief accounts of the lives of some of the early believers involved.
The study of the Writings of Bahá’u’lláh is a never-ending spiritual experience; the many significances contains in His utterances and the power of His words are inexhaustible. The reader, therefore, will discover in this book only a drop out of the ocean, for only through a deeper study of the Writings of Bahá’u’lláh can we see the immensity of the Knowledge of God which Bahá’u’lláh has bestowed upon us in this day, a knowledge which will continually expand and unfold itself with the passage of time. 1
