The Slime Mould Collective

An international network of/for intelligent organisms

I found this article about how slime molds have developed an external chemical memory to help them avoid areas they have already explored.  When they come across an old slime trail they detect a chemical in it that tells them "look elsewhere, no food here".  The slime mold will follow this programing unless starving.

This reminds me of a robot programming game called Robozzel.
