Yes, Scientists Really Are Trying to Create a Human Out of Slime

September 18, 2017 — 
From 2001: A Space Odyssey to The Terminator to The Matrix and more, we are acutely aware of the alternate reality in which computers and AIs take over the world. But what we fail to consider a threat is Mother Nature herself.

In The Creeping Garden, a fascinating documentary exploring the potential of slime mold, we discover alongside some of Britain’s most curious minds that despite slime’s lack of organs or even a microscopic brain, it has primitive intelligence, a term which is being redefined and reinvented every day.

Watch as these rebel fringe scientists apply the intelligent patterns of plasmodial slime mold to the humanities, and begin one of the greatest experiments of our time: creating a human slime mold. Could The Toxic Avenger really come to be?

 If you think that sounds complex, wait until you hear the whole story as told by some of the world’s most forward thinkers and set to a score by Sonic Youth producer Jim O’Rourke.

The Creeping Garden is available to stream on Amazon Prime.
