The Confusing Ball is an agent coded by Malkin to go by a concept by Ettina, for testing instinctless creatures' learning abilities. It is deliberately confusing, as creatures see the ball as either 'seed', 'fruit' or 'food', but it behaves exactly like a toy - to be precise, the hi-bounce rubber ball. 'Seeds' are blue, 'fruit' is yellow, and 'food' is red.
It is available to download at Malkin's blog.
