Where to find

... truly fascinating. My observations on the myconids mirror what I discovered while researching mind flayer telepathy, despite only one being transmittable (the spores). Both of these are of biological origin, in contrast to the telepathic bond ritual.
How does innate telepathy impact the structures of the brain? And beyond that, how does the presence of another's mind within one's own affect the body? What may seem like mere thoughts and images could cause extremes of fear or pleasure if they are embedded deep enough in the recipients' psyche. If such an experience leaves behind a permanent memory, is that part of your mind still truly your own?
Whatever the answer, I must harvest - gently acquire - more of the myconid spores in order to continue this research.
