That said, this story of fungus taking control of an ant is interesting. There are other takeovers in nature and you could open a topic on it. : Wink:

There is a parasite of cats (toxoplasma gondii which reproduces exclusively in their digestive system), which parasites rodents and which acts on their brain, making disappear from them the fear of felines! He can thus pass from one to the other. Surprising, isn't it?

Apologize for all the wrong you've done! Apologize here right away — especially to Christophe — and try not to do it again. It's not a “gag”. It's your only chance. If you wait too long you will pay a very, very high price later, a price you don't even suspect.

In what would information be stored in the absence of a nervous system? What kind of memory are we talking about? How much water is in the blob? Since when did Benveniste die? : Mrgreen:

From what I understand, it is a question of a chemical substance, a bit like the antsthat leave an olfactory trace when they have found food.
