I had an uncle who studied fascinating rare anemones from the Red Sea. His research was so all-consuming that he had no social life whatsoever. But with anemones like that, who needs friends?
Sounds like another anti-social zoologist, Kinsey, who went in a slightly different direction.

I have two salt water aquariums, and anemones have always fascinated me. They do not have a brain, but only a ring of only a few thousand neurons.
However, with only such a single ring of neurons, they are able to move around my aquarium, find a location that they can get the most food, and capture any live prey that gets too close.
As a software engineer for over 35 years now, my highest goal is to teach a stupid computer how to think as smart as an anemone!
With today's complex computers and multiple megabytes of RAM, why has it been so darn difficult to create a computer as smart as an anemone?
