Changing the hashing functions, encryption, and network verification are all built into bitcoin. It's designed to be resilient, and to use consensus when adapting over time.
It'd be really stupid for people to go "oh no, someone cracked sha256 and mined a million blocks, I guess we're done with bitcoin now. Buh-bye money!"
They'll fix it in the case of a noticeable exploit. If someone were clever, they'd mine blocks surreptitiously, sufficiently spaced out over time and different networks so that it looks like normal mining. They could get a few blocks per day for maybe a couple years until the upgrades. The impact to the system would be minimal.
Having mister bottles with spore solutions to inoculate places where the seeds are planted could be a good solution. This would also reduce deadwood, increase the growth rate of the trees, retain water, and anchor more diverse ecosystems. Mushrooms have to be part of the solution. Identifying the various types of mushroom species in local healthy forest should provide a guideline for what's sprayed with the seeds. Blended suspensions of mycelium could be the best way of inoculation, but spores would definitely be better than nothing.
Wildflowers, lichens, and other flora should also be a part, based on the local ecosystems. Monoculture or insufficient diversity could result in making things worse, whereas healthy samples represent local optima discovered by natural growth.
I plan on trying it with friends and family next time we go fishing/camping/hiking. A little bit of practice and repetition should be all it takes.
A little experimentation and I found I can whistle quite a few English words, so it's probably a matter of acclimation to vocabulary limits and practice among enough individuals that things become standardized. Using things unique to whistling could augment vocabulary or add nuance, but I don't see any reason straight US English (or other languages) couldn't be used.
I could be way off base, but this is a pretty cool language format.
What is right and correct thinking, and if there are exceptions, does that tie into some sort of meta-rule about rightness, and how should it inform our own internal storytelling as we manifest our lives?
I'm always left at the zen koan:
Before enlightenment, chop wood, carry water. After enlightenment, chop wood, carry water.
Reality is that which remains after you stop believing in it. Interpretations and narratives with subjective contexts need to tie into the "chop wood, carry water" reality of the author, or your interpretation is invalid.
Mach 33 is needed to escape orbit, so if you were going to launch a ball bearing into space, you'd need something at least 33 times more powerful than the rubber bands and 2x4 trebuchet.
It'd be interesting to run through those parameterizations with assumptions scaled to maximize a payload for reaching orbit using things like modern high strength steel and mechanical advantage and so on. It seems possible.
The amount of energy involved is terrifying - a space launch trebuchet would also be an anti-tank trebuchet.
There are much easier ways to destroy a tank than a 20-billion-dollar centrifuge.
The idea of hobbyist level engineering achieving orbital escape velocities is the scary bit.
The design space equations used by the trebuchet guy could answer the questions, I think.
This has an interesting set of tanning processes, but it's funny how SEO saturated this topic is. There are some video results that are probably useful, but 99% of my searches are turning up commercial garbage, and nothing to do with actually making mushroom leather.
Iirc from a podcast, sodium carbonate is used to soak amadou mushrooms for a felt-like material, which Paul Stamets uses for his hat.
You'll probably need to learn the jargon and terms of art specifying the exact types of mushroom fabrics and materials that can be produced.
