Mold, Fungus, & Politics

Newsweek published an interesting article written by Hannah Osborne entitled “Fungi Appear to Talk in a Language Similar to Humans” (link below). This is along the same lines as last year’s news in Nature magazine that slime mold, which is a large yet single-celled organism, without a brain, can learn to navigate a maze (second link below).

Pretty amazing, don’t you think?

I wonder if they lie and scream at one another the way our elected officials do.

It would be sad (but not surprising) to find out that mold and fungus are more civilized than Congress.
