The idea that the roots of neighboring trees can be connected by fungal filaments, forming massive underground networks that can span entire forests, similar to internet architecture.
When people speak of the wood-wide web, they are generally referring to the resulting system of interconnected tree roots called a common mycorrhizal network, or CMN. But there’s very little that scientists can say with certainty about how, and to what extent, trees interact via CMNs.
The idea of the wood wide web has inspired many narratives in books, TV, and other media, despite little or no experimental evidence to back up their claims.
The survival horror video game series The Last of Us uses the idea of a wood wide web to drive its narrative by featuring zombies that are controlled by a fungi host. It’s a compelling story, but many mycologists and scientists no longer believe in the scientific claims about fungal networks that inspired its zombie apocalypse.

"The shadow person" refers directly to the completely random occurrence in which a person will clock a glimpse of an unidentified spooky figure which resembles that of an ominous, dark, slender-man looking entity which flashes past their peripheral vision.
This phenomenon has been widely addressed since, well, the beginning of time.
What is most scary is how everyone, even your friends and family, will most likely be able to relate to this and have experienced this several times within their lifetime, with no explanation or evidence as to how and why - even diverse groups of people around the world have described to have coincidentally seen the exact same figure
Despite the unknown presence of the shadow person, research and theories have suggested that these are “creatures of supernatural origin that appear as dark forms in the peripheries of people’s vision and disintegrate, or move between walls, when noticed.”
Some say that they appear during "phases of emotional trauma, physical reflections of grief and fear" whilst others say it is down to sleep deprivation.
Scary shit huh.
