Modern Humans Behave like Ants and Bees, not like Other Primates
Have you ever watched an ant colony as the ants scurry to feed, or defend, the colony? Have you ever studied bees in the hive, as they work to take care of the queen? Have you ever studied primates in the wild? While we are closely related to primates, an observation shows that we have more in common with the ants and bees than we do with our nearest living relatives, the other primates.
Have a look at ants - see them rushing off on some purpose, often forming lines as they go. If we watch them for long we wonder how each one knows where it is going. Ants actually do make "roads" for each other – these are called scent trails. We think of them as worker ants and each have their own jobs, or roles, some serve to collect food, others are workers, building and repairing the ant hill, other ants defend the colony, some are used to "maintain the roads", others cater to the needs of the queen, and so forth.
Ants even have their own form of agriculture, with some ant species raising, tending, and “milking” aphids.
Bees also work for a purpose, their queen. Some bees serve to collect food, others to process the food, and within the bee hive there are many more roles. Busy bees, we call them, as we see these tiny insects fly from flower to flower collecting pollen to bring back to the hive. Within the hive these bees work, work, work, to serve a purpose, that is for the betterment of the hive, and their queen.
Bees show a “teamwork” effort communicating with each other in ways we are only learning, as they tell each other “go here, go there, the food is this far”.
Although most of us have not seen primates in the wild, many of us have seen them at zoos. We note that they seem to have a leisurely life, eating bananas and swinging from the trees.
Sometimes they have nothing more to do than sitting around picking bugs off each other! What a life!
When we look at modern humans, we see them rush in the morning to get off to work, they enter rush hour traffic, everyone going someplace, much like the ants in the colony, how does each one know where they are going?
We, as humans, think we are free compared to the ants and bees, but if you were to watch a city from a distance it would look no different than an ant colony or bee hive. You would see people rushing off here and there, and if you were to get a bit closer you would see we are not working for ourselves, but for another force. People work for their boss, but ultimately for their government. Even bosses work for somebody as they rush around just like our friend the ant, or the bee.
From a distance a modern human society is far more similar to an ant colony, or bee hive, than to our nearest relatives, the primates.
Ask yourselves, is this the way our life is suppose to be? Are we all meant to be worker ants and drones feeding the queen?
