Here's a neat example of mycelium-mediated translocation:
The first image shows a single cluster of Pleurotus ostreatus mushrooms (weighing 380 grams). The cluster grew from a hole with a 5 mm diameter.
The second photo shows the backside of the cluster. The small knob in the center was molded by the hole through which it grew. All that mass through such a tiny hole in the span of 5-6 days.
Network architects would be wise to observe the lessons of the mycelium.
