Ok, just to shortcut through having to edit all our conversation here, I'm going to paraphrase.

DHW, you seem to equate not dying with learning. They are not the same thing, not by any stretch. You know this. You know that is NOT what we are discussing, either. Being the lone survivor does not mean you have learned anything, only that you survived.

What's more, that does not leave any room for the kind of complicated pre-planning that your hypothesis requires. Further, an unpurposed cell community does not equate to the brain, with all of its spatial shape requirements and special tissue type requirements and chemical requirements.

In short, I think you danced all around those points, but didn't actually address any of them with any legitimate evidence of a singe cell doing the things you claim they can do. And it MUST be at the individual cell level, because to get from point A to wherever you are going with it, you have to start with a single cell. That means no cell communities to act as a data store, even if that were possible.

What is the purpose of living? How about, 'to reduce needless suffering. It seems to me to be a worthy purpose.
