The Slime Mould Collective

An international network of/for intelligent organisms

So you want slime? 

I can give you slime. I'll post physarum to anyone anywhere free of charge. 

"Free?" you say, surely that's too good to be true? 

Indeed it is, I said free of charge, not actually free. This is the slime mould collective, lone oat flakes do not get visited by physarum fairy. You must prove your worth if you want to join and engage with the network. Assimilation doesn't hurt, we promise and you might like it. 

Tell us why you want the slime, what are your hopes and fears for slimekind? Where do you you see your slime in five years time?

A paragraph, a short story, maybe a few lines of verse, how about an expressive dance? We don't mind we just want you to communicate.

In return we will let you have your very own slime sent discreetly in a plain envelope - your friends and family need never know!

Hi Ian, I would love it if I could get physarum! My kids and I watched a TED talk on it and now my 7 year old would like one as a pet (he chose it over ferrets and lizards;). He is excited to experiment and see what it can do. I can’t seem to find a way to order one in Canada- you need to be part of an educational institution - so anything you can do to help would be wonderful! Thanks!
Hi Ian,
Until recently I didn’t know much about slime moulds but after reading about them, wow! They’re fascinating. I’m a biology lecturer and really have to tell my students about them. I’d also really like to carry out some lab practicals to get the students interested in them. If you could send me some P. polycephalum that would be a massive help.
Many thanks,
