	Thanks for this refreshing and post Spike.  Good to read something
other than the arms, punishment and creationist posts!

Thanks Natasha.  The ant experiment is kinda sorta about arms, punishment
and creationism, in a very indirect way.  What the experiment asks is if
ants can go deep within and come up with just a little more collective
insight to solve an intractible problem with an elegant alternative method,
taking the nontraditional and anti-instinctive path.  If the ants can do it,
humans can do it.
