With electrical signals, cells can organize themselves into complex societies and negotiate with other colonies

 

This cooperation between single celled bacteria appears to be the beginnings of cooperative same-cell behavior in animal organs like skin cells, the same kinds of cells with different functions, maybe even cooperative behaviors of ants within an ant colony, for that matter. Evolution has created amazing instinctive cooperative behaviors.
