I think there’s probably an issue, intuitively anyway, for calculating the computational complexity, for doesn’t it utilize an assumption of a linear calculation completing in a particular time-frame? One of the reasons the slime mold (and possibly my basic rubber-band solution from a few years back, although I might have just stumbled upon something more basic than I realize) works quickly is that each step utilized physical properties such as hyperelasticity which can get awkward to calculate using standard means ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cauchy_stress_tensor on basic geometric forms) but in reality is a basic property of many materials, such as rubber and in a more complex fashion, the workings of the slime mold collective intelligence, which I *suspect* could be simplified to elasticity, although with its ability to replicate, its tightenings and loosenings are far more flexible than processed rubber.

Or, perhaps my solution is ridiculous and doesn’t work :P I don’t think it’s a generalized solution that would work in all situation or even many, but a solution that can work on a 2D plane with a circumscribed solution built of a known set of destinations, is to me logical to work with a “water always finds the hole” type solution. It might not solve thought experiments or database problems but it can solve real world problems which include gravity, properties of materials (or complex life form behaviors) as a sort of free lunch.
