If the opponent has a few copies of Cooperation, they might want to have creatures cards in a chain line, so that one red token feeds the whole line with one blue token each. This will be conveniently mean their creatures will be laid out laterally in the desired network line order.

Now, if I have three or more Trematodes say, what happens to that layout now if they end up with two sets of networking rules which leaves a player in the situation of not being able to place tandem pairs adjacent to one another, where one creature has a creature to its left and a creature to its right,with a third requirement or more to adjacency which will break a layout? How can you mark out tandems where one creature exists across three, or even more, separate pair tandems? This can happen with any one pairwise trait named card Cooperation in multiple copies, but could include Communication, Symbiosis, Trematode all on top of each other. Is there a specific policy for this spaghetti noodle mess scenario, or is there a hard rule, or even the general policy, to never try for this on one's self or the opponents, and just to not do that and generally "play nice"?

Well, you may connect any animal with any animal using the pairwise trait, unless this pair already have this trait. Yes, sometimes it leads to a great layout changes (you have to move your animals on the table to connect it properly), but it is not against the rules and there is no specific policy about it. If you want to connect three of your animals with COOPERATIONS. you would need to make a "circle" of animals to place three COOPERATIONS on them.

But this isn't really going to fit ad infinitum, with lines and loops crossing lines and again, with four pairwise traits that are diffferent.

Golly!
