Plants learn, remember and decide, without brains. The slime investigator suggests that Christianity has put too big a divide between humans and other organisms, and the Western mind is very very reluctant to cross. Narby starts to use a Japanese term instead of intelligence; since, as the Japanese scientist says to him, "I feel that behind this term, there is Western Christian culture, in which intelligence is a gift from the God to humans only.

My gut alone contains about one hundred million neurons capable of learning, remembering, and responding to emotions, just like the larger brain in my head. Bacteria communicate - and shamanship has always recognised that everything communicates.

Intelligence in Nature

My sense has always been that he was acutely aware of the dangers of such a convincing weaving-together of the worlds of animism and science — that if too successful, the book may engender a muddy confluence of the two rather than a fruitful new relationship where the distinct values of each complement rather than lose their power in some swirling half-way meeting point. The Cosmic Serpent delved into the world of indigenous shamanism with the rather unscientific but fertile attitude that we should try taking the perspective of shamans at face value, to see where this led. Intelligence in Nature, positioning itself as something of a follow-up, something of a counter-balance, finds Narby travelling into the heart of the Western scientific tradition — literally into its labs and offices — in order to discover where our tradition is leading us with regard to the capacity for non-human organisms, both plant and animal, to intelligently adapt to the varied conditions of life. Many readers here will have ambiently absorbed, or perhaps followed with interest, the ever-flowing tide of recent scientific news revealing more and more hitherto undocumented examples of animal intelligence, most famously the tool-using crow and the maze-solving slime mold.
