In a time of expanding networks and unpredictable growth and stasis, a booklet comes from a place beyond our understanding, the Kingdom of Protista. An illustrated essay which gently argues for the use of Physarum Polycephalum (the “many headed slime”) as a model for human learning. This booklet outlines the terrain which slime mould currently occupies in art and science, provides descriptions of Kindergarten classroom interactions with slime mould, and offers a path through the pedagogical theories of Friedrich Froebel, the inventor of Kindergarten. While Froebel invented “Gifts” of carefully systematized blocks and templates, biomimetic entanglement with the yellowy-orange plasmodia, slime mould, offers Gifts of insight into emergence and the umwelten (the “world as experienced”) of other-than-humans and humans alike.
