In 1995, Mycelium Network™ was founded by Antonio Fignes, a scientist studying the medicinal effects of S.Commune (Split Gill Mushrooms) in indigenous regions in Mexico. He found a link between S.Commune and respiratory infections. Using indigenous records, he discovered that boiling the Split Gill Mushrooms created a lightly colored tan tea. In 2009, Fignes conducted clinical trials on indigenous women with leukemia, which led to the world’s first cure for cancer. Backed by global partners, Fignes created Split Gill Mushroom™ Farm, a processing facility that employed farmers to sort dead logs, harvest mushrooms, and process and brew tea. In 2011, Split Gill Mushroom™ Farm created Teapop!™, ‘the world’s first cure for cancer in a can’ and shipped primarily to cancer patients in the United States of America.

The Department of Archival Memories, a division of Mycelium Network™, was created by little-known researchers and AI archivists, determined to use Split Gill Mushrooms to find a link between human memories and mycelial networks. Through experimentation, the researchers and AI archivists created 1491 by assembling bio-composite material, soil from New York State, and pieces of the American™ flag into a memory capsule, forming what they dubbed as “a living memory.”

1491 is currently undergoing its transformation process in the Mycelium Network™ processing facility.
