About this book

Language: French

Neither animal, nor plant, nor mushroom, the blob is a yellow mass of slime mould with a spongy texture and astonishing capacities! Without a mouth, eyes or stomach, this one-celled organism nevertheless manages to see and digest. Cut into pieces, it heals in two minutes, is able to reproduce (it has no less than 720 sexes), to communicate, to solve puzzles and to have different personalities even though it has no brain. Devoid of limbs, it moves and adapts its size to its environment. Its only enemies are drought and light, which it flees by "hibernating". Behind its alien appearance, this species promises major scientific advances: answers on the origins of intelligence, solutions to extend our longevity, cancer treatment, the discovery of new drugs, improvement of our transport networks... you have not finished hearing about the blob!

Summary in French:
Ni animal, ni plante, ni champignon, le blob est une masse Jaune à la texture spongieuse et aux capacités étonnantes ! Sans bouche, sans yeux ni estomac, cet organisme unicellulaire parvient néanmoins à voir et à digérer. Découpé en morceaux, il cicatrise en deux minutes, est capable de se reproduire (il présente pas moins de 720 sexes), de communiquer, de résoudre des énigmes et d'avoir différentes personnalités alors même qu'il n'a pas de cerveau. Dénué de membres, il se déplace et adapte sa taille à son environnement. Ses seuls ennemis sont la sécheresse et la lumière, qu'il fuit en "hibernant". Derrière ses allures d'ovni, cette espèce promet des avancées scientifiques majeures : réponses sur les origines de l'intelligence, solutions pour prolonger notre longévité, traitement du cancer, découverte de nouveaux médicaments, amélioration de nos réseaux de transports... Nous n'avons pas fini d'entendre parler du blob !
