Bees, ants, and foxes use mathematics in a way that is far more sophisticated than we ever imagined. Slime mold remembers the shortest routes to food without a brain. Moisture-loving fungi make rain. Plankton create clouds when the sun burns too hot. Squid and octopus edit their own brain genes. And wild dogs use sneezing as a collective decision-making process to organize activities.
