In theory it might be possible.
I suspect that organisms that could do this would probably have to be designed.
They would probably have to have some tiny rigid frame to hang an every changing/learning neural network type structure on.
Also getting refined input sensory data, like an eye or ear would be tricky.
I doubt you could do it in a single cell [but that could just be the limit of my imagination.]
By putting a tiny neural system inside each cell they could link up and make a pretty complex structure with only a small number of cells. I don't
know if you could create a tiny eye or ear in a single cell. With the shrinking microelectronics/devices though, maybe it would be possible to create
an organic version.
In my imagination I always assume the real supermind aliens are micro tiny. When you start playing around with additional dimensions scale may become
Have you ever heard stories of really tiny UFOs? I think those are the guys that know what is going on.
