The simplest explanation? (Evolution)

dhw asked me for my opinion on "cellular intelligence".
I did a search and came across this article on the subject:

http://www.basic.northwestern.edu/g-buehler/FRAME.HTM

He says in the last paragraph that his views are based on experimental evidence
and not on philosophical assumptions.

It does seem from this that cells, at least in the form of bacteria,
which are self-contained life forms, do have sensors and a control centre,
which I suppose can be thought of as a sort of "brain",
but I would be reluctant to call it "intelligence", since it just reacts to stimuli.

But this is not a subject I've looked into before.
