This would be the situation in a flask inocculated with a single E. coli cell susceptible to T2 phages.

Gary, what does theory say about the distribution of intelligence in a bacterial clone? Is theory assuming that all cells contain the same amount of intelligence?
As long as they were well isolated from external information from wild colony conjugation the molecular level intelligence of the clones would be essentially identical.
What does your theory predict will happen if a single T2 phage is added to the culture?
|But the cellular intelligence is the part it develops during its lifetime and depends on environment, resulting in tumblers, swarmers, or even sessile, resulting in very different cellular intelligence circuits.|
