Bio-luminescent Brain Trees

Immediate differences in bulb structure were noted, with the adolescent having a more elongated bulb, with a clearly defined root line, were-as the adult plant, maintained a more compressed bulb structure, with additional lineage. The same sloped sub-soil line patterns, at angles to the bulbs, were noted in all plants; regardless of age.

Testing continues to find the exact mineral composition, allowing for their bio-luminescent properties. Bio-luminescence has long been considered a form of both communication and protection, for species.

It is with interest that similar compounds appeared at other xeno-biological sites, namely Sulfur and Phosphorous; both known to be macronutrients. Whether they are used by the various entities or not, has yet to be determined.

Though little is known about the exacts, of many of these plants, what is for certain is they are biological, making use of various forms of celestial radiation, and varied planetary geological events, for as of yet known processes. Though suspected of being resource gathering mechanisms, this view is rejected by this researcher in that, variation does not equate to efficiency of function. Though planetary listed materials can be found in the different species, it is believed to be that of what was dredged upwards, during the saplings growth cycle; a not so rare occurrence of our own agriculture.

Due to the variation of types, and the patterns of their seeding, throughout the currently known boundaries of the ancient civilization, it would is more apt to view them as staple crops, versus biological miners.

Learning more about them, will allow us to learn more about the dietary requirements, and perhaps a better view from that angle, into the remains of their once thriving civilization.

Variations were noted in the above sample, taken in system HR 4220. Though macronutrient remains constant with this particular species, variations were noted.

Clearly defined surface root-structure was readily apparent, consistent with tellurium deposits.
Sub-soil noted the same tellurium deposits.

While examining sub-soil deposits, banding variations were noted in this species, with clearly defined banding on both adult bulbs. Further inspection above the soil layer showed variations in the flesh and bark of this now hypothesized sub-species; if this group has capacity to breed with the previously investigated group, without penalty, then a firm finding of sub-species can be noted.

What is not yet known, is the life-cycle of the seven known tree species. What can be determined, through general observation, is a simile to a few, of the up-to 700 earthen fig tree species. Using that as the measuring stick, a clear separation of growth-stages, can be visually observed.

Variations and coloration of the root-ball, speaks of stage of maturity.
1. The adolescent having a singular root-ball with a distinct separation zone; indicating its budding duality. Fruit produced at this stage is 7.
2. As the tree matures a clear separation is noted, though specific banding coloration has yet to take place. As the tree matures and its fruit matures, the tree will enter into its next life-cycle.
3. The mature tree is at its apex, with a clear blue banding. Fruit produced is a consistent 12.
4. As the tree continues to age, and progresses through its life cycle, its root-bulb coloration changes to that of gold, indicating advanced maturity; fruit remains consistent at 12.

No deceased tree or remnant has yet to be found; searching continues.

Figs are a shallow fibrous root species; location dependent. In certain conditions the roots can spread laterally or even vertically; Note: Roseum Brain Tree with lateral root spread.
Certain Fig tree species can live as long as 200 years.
It is common for most Fig species (not all) to not require pollination for fruit to begin to set.
