Inter-Organism Communication Structures

Two major cell structures remain to be explained; these are the Received Message Store and the inter-organism Communications Working Memory. These two structures are both concerned with communications between organisms. The former is used to store incoming messages from other organisms, and the latter is used to compose messages to be sent out to other organisms.

The communications aspect of these structures is described in more detail in Section 4.6.1, but the part they play in the functioning of the cell is explained here.
