That headline caught my attention. It’s a bit unfathomable that ants can communicate, go to war, migrate and feed their queen. But I’ve never seen them as tiny architects either. So now I learn that they create the underground chambers and interconnected suites using their bodies and pheromones as blueprints. No thought at all. But in a sense the blueprints they follow are blueprints in their tiny brains.

One of the comments on the blog entry was interesting too. Can we hijack the ants to build for us? Like little robots. Maybe they could have built the pyramids.
