Of course, we can’t know (yet) how insensible a fungus is, but until we learn otherwise, what a memorable way to convey a loss of wonder. Apologies to all wondering fungi.
And may wonder never become extinct in you, whether or not you resemble fungus.
‘Will wonder become extinct in me? Shall I become insensible as a fungus?’ 1 Dec 1856
