Recology is the second largest religious philosophy after Tau’ism. Worship of ecology was encouraged during the Slave Epoch, during which massive overpopulation necessitated food gardens as sustainable life-style. The slogan ‘food is money’ was common. A formal system of worshipping ecology developed and then mutated with the introduction of Biohab life forms to Earth. It has incorporated the practice of Transmigration. It is a reinvention/continuation of Druidry, in fact the priests call themselves Druids and Dryads (male and female). The Great Temple of Recology is on Mars where advanced Biohab technology is distributed from. There, reincarnation is taught as a practical system; souls are identified by esoteric methods. The Biohab is designed as an artificial body capable of sustaining transmigrated souls. The colours of practitioners of Recology is Green and White for plant and spirit. Recologists on Earth are wild individuals preferring to find their own Tau in the jungle rather than to work as temple acolytes of biodome food gardens.
The original ecologies of planet earth are long gone to pollution.
Genetic Modification has given us new species, both intentionally and by accident.
Polyps are slug-like creatures that turn into plants. Both flora and fauna.
There are many sub-species but they all generally follow the same pattern of emerging from dank places as slug/leech/worm creatures and traveling to their desired ‘home’. Individuals have been know to travel many km, absorbing nutrients on the way. Generally they absorb toxins and chemicals from the atmosphere. Once they find ‘home’ they metamorph into plant species, sometimes ferns, other times tendrils; the range is enormous. Some types are edible others are toxic or psychedelic. They are by far the most common life forms on the planet.
It is thought that Polyps are related to Sleech.
Tendril-lillies. A type of Polyp that anchors itself by suction onto ledges and ceilings, sending out syphon shoots that drop down to rain catchment surfaces below. The ‘root’ blooms into ‘torchids’; fluorescented flowers that continue to glow even after cut and dried although they eventually crumble into dim and dust. Some species have tiny ‘teeth’ in their roots that bore up through walls to secure them; hence the name ‘drillies’. These plants are one of the main light sources in the subzones and come in many shapes, sizes and colors.
There is a sub species that uses its tendrils to catch small animals such as rats and small sleech using its flower as a mouth, where it secretes a digestive venom that is used to cause a paralysis and sleeping fever. Water is the curative for ‘blue fire’ as both the venom and fever are known.
