When spring comes, bee hives divide into two, one group staying in, the other looking for new home. It’s not the queen assigning “home-searching scouts” but older bees. Scouts fly off looking for places and announce their finds by special dance moves, describing routes to their finds – more dancing for better spots.
Similarly for ants. A leaderless, self-directing society that expands democratically and which communicates/transmits messages using pheromone.
Our politicians/businessmen can learn from bees/ants/…:
- Don’t be die-hard/fanatic about your choices/finds
- Focus on your responsibilities
- Forget politics
- Listen to/consider your peers
- Let bygones be bygones
