Interesting facts

  • When two or more slime mould cells meet they dissolve the membranes that separate them & fuse together. They become two individuals existing within the same body. These then join with others to become a multitude of individuals; a collective. This collective starts moving as one, changing shape, developing a heightened sensitivity to the world around it and if it wasn’t limited to its size, it would take over Life on Earth.
