Real life is still holding me hostage, so here is a book review that you might find of interest. No, I do not think cells are conscious, intelligent beings. But I do think cell’s contain a level of sophistication that is greater than even ID apologists seem to recognize – a level of sophistication that suggests “thinking” has always been in the cards (independent of any convergence arguments from Conway Morris). We’ll get to that, but in the meantime, I also think this reviewer is correct in his core assessment. Check it out for yourself:
BTW, this was from 1918.
