Now, this fucker doesn't have any legs, limbs or doesn't have any muscles. It's baffling enough to understand how they move around and chase stuff but how does it move so fast ? It's ridiculous.
Have you read about slime molds? Another example of an unintelligent, simple life form that does some pretty amazing shit.
They can solve mazes, when separated they find each other again and reunite, really strange.
The other two cells that freak out. I have no idea how they can move so fast.
Even multicellular organisms like the tardigrade has completely evolved a multipedal muscular based system for walking as well as functions like eyes, respiratory and digestive tracts. And we're talking about an organism with 1/6th size of a sand crystal. This is bullshit.
Thats fucked up. Check this TEDx talk about slime moulds.
Apparently they create some sort of neural net that transmits information wihin the mould.
It's because they are actually alive and they where trying to escape
I find it weird, and kind of freaky how the Paramecium are single-celled, which means they should not have any sort of intelligence, or even know that they exist. Yet, they react as does anything trying to escape a predator.
I know right? The fact they can learn patterns is especially crazy I think. They seem to anticipate and take action to avoid negative conditions that occur on a regular basis. Shouldn't they need a memory to do that? How do they have memory?
Do you people fail to realize DNA is knowledge. Knowledge procured using a scientific method known as trial and error or process of elimination. In a very long term or grand cosmic scale of things all living creatures are intelligent thinking creatures. Each individual species belonging to a hive mind that communicates through reproduction and stores acquired knowledge in DNA. No different than us, just experiencing time at a MUCH slower pace than us.
how do you have memory? seriously does anyone really know how memory works?
You are completely ignoring the fact that it knows how to walk, look and investigate those chemical signals. What you said doesn't explain tardigrades behaviour without a primitive level of consciousness.
This sound read something like
>i get the same reaction watching this video as when watching anything trying to escape a predator
The perceived awareness and intelligence is something you're layering on the video.
You've said something more annoying than a creationist or flat earther argument. Does that mean you win?
>how do they move so fast
>how do they move
they are covered in thousands of cilia, tiny hairs that they use to row around with, that you cant see because they are too small and move too fast at this resolution
dont forget that the length scale you are looking at is in the micron range
