An international network of/for intelligent organisms
Task: Will the slime mould find the shortest route to its food source?
Result: No! Well, they found the source of food but couldn't reach it. Oats were placed on a small piece of felt, which dried out before the agar base of the maze. Therefore the physarum was reluctant to leave the moist agar floor to reach the oats on higher drier ground, so it went hungry.
