The Insane Biology of Slime Mold

The idea of slime molds solving the complex exponecial tasks lineraly, really reminds one of quantom computing.

It brings to the front the idea that organisms are natural quantom computers capable of compound computation, even on the smallest of scales (the whole idea of microtubuli)

If that's the case, than computer parts using slime molds are essencially the most efficient quantom computers that humanity has made so far
