A new form of chemical communication has been discovered and may well be the fundamental proto-model for the later "hive-mind" in insects, etc. This excellent lecture demonstrates how bacteria form sentient superstructures (hive-minds) Makes me wonder if we are complex patterns of simple organisms and our higher senses are all fundamentally based on the language of bacteria. We are not just hive-minds, we are a hive- organism. Quorum Sensing , Intra- and Inter-species bacterial communication. An interesting phenomenon is the function of "incubation period". IMO, this is evidence that all functional organisms on earth are inherently sentient and posess an internal mathematical language based on chemical properties. After all, we are some 97% bacterial............Please Register or Log in to view the hidden image!..............Please Register or Log in to view the hidden image!
