Sensory Potential and Intelligent Organisms

Please allow a little fun in describing this group.  Woody Allen said he would not join a club that would allow a person like him to become a member.  Here, Mr. Allen probably not need be concerned because group membership is neither by invitation nor self-selection.  The first members will join as a group of three, an arbitrary number.  Membership is currently restricted to those who have at least one time realized sensory potential of perceiving and understanding communication from an…See More

"Leon,  I think you’re asking, “Could we have turned out differently?”  Our intelligence essentially is the intelligence of mold.  Can we return to the seemingly unaffected decision making ways of mold?  We agree…"

I think we humans have something of a tunnel vision when it comes to projecting the components of our homeostasis because we see our well-being and future as being achievable by following a linear path to a particular goal, i.e. a good mate, nice dwelling, social status, car, clothes, recognition, etc. However, psychology, economics, anthropology and other social sciences are plagued with examples indicating that not to be so and that upon obtaining one goal humans in modern society instantly replace it with another that seems to be just as immediate for long term well-being and satisfaction. So, what does that have to do with our little friends eating preferences? I would love to see oats being replaced with  good mate, nice dwelling, social status, car, clothes, recognition, etc. and see how it behaves. 

Obviously, I postulated a pipe dream of being able to draw parallels between the behavior of one dimensional small creatures and that multi-faceted humans. However, seeing the choices these small fellows make would certainly be fascinating and definitely make us feel like feel like Greek gods.
