Massive Super-Organism Is Devouring The Titanic

In 2000 Roy Cullimore, a microbial ecologist and Charles Pellegrino, scientist and author of Ghosts of the Titanic, discovered that the Titanic was being devoured by a monster microbial industrial complex of extremophiles as alien as we might expect to find on Jupiter's ocean-bound Europa. What they discovered is the largest, strangest cooperative micro-organism on Earth.

Scientists believe that this strange super-organism is using a common microbial language that could be either chemical or electrical - a phenomenon called 'quorum sensing' by which whole communities 'sense' each other's presence and activities aiding and abetting the organization, cooperation, and growth.
