Slime Intelligence

Physarum polycephalum is a single-celled organism invisible to the naked eye. However, in its ideal conditions-dark, wet, and bacterial-it multiplies into a visible bright yellow mass that spreads ostentatiously, fanning out in veins or erupting in polyp-like protrusions. The population of autonomous cells acts like a single being, moving and spreading with efficiency and coordination to find food and avoid light.
