The productive secret of the ants

«If you can emulate nature, then you will be able to understand why it survives, does not starve and what is the reason for its success and thus you will know what to learn from it»

Now you will understand something that it was not easy for Painani to understand, the love for ants of his partner Hora; their respect and affection for that society that was sustained based on agriculture and a series of hierarchies where structured work strengthened them against the onslaught of nature, Hora, was reciprocated by them, they indicated the places where the mushrooms grew with the which they fed; They also pointed out the risk areas since their altruism determined them to be gregarious and obey the group rather than themselves as individuals, and this behaviour helped them to put aside the ego that characterizes us, humans.

When Painani returned that afternoon and sat down to eat with her loved one, she recounted the moments she shared that morning with the children of the communities she had visited and told her that two adults needed his support due to a very strong pain of tooth.

Later, she asked a little irritated:

– How did you do with your friends, the ants? Hora seriously replied:

-My love, you must see beyond the appearance of things and beings that surround you, in the ants, there is an inexhaustible flow of wisdom; their success on the planet makes them animals of exemplary value, the ants imitate their elders, they learn the layout of the land where they go to work, the workers are the ones who start the day’s work, they contemplate the figure of the mother as a value to conserve, their matriarchy does not obey the laws of the stronger sex, but of the one who fulfils the task of conserving the species.

Of course, their communities are very numerous and their intelligence is limited to supporting the group, in that we are different, but each power animal in the wide territory that we tread and the one that we do not know has something to tell us and we do not know which of them has chosen the beings we love, that is why it is good to be foresighted, observant and grateful.

Painani smiled and admitted that her way of seeing the world fascinated him and recognized that at that moment she had received a teaching that she would carry forever in her memory.

Sometimes the humblest work of a living being can give us reasons to look at life from another perspective.

Entomologist Ted Schultz found that these ants feed fungi in underground gardens on decaying or plant matter, depending on the species, and even grow a bacterium on the outside of their body that acts as an antibiotic against fungal diseases. «By themselves, ants cannot produce their own food, but when each one does its job, they create something as complex as agriculture,» explains Schultz.
