ok first off me and a friend were driving around sparking some bowls and we got into this huge discussion. I am fore warning you because i might loose some of you here. because I am and you are all probly also. LoL. what if the ants are a far more soupier beings then us humans. if you look at ants they are on a set path to do whatever they do in a orderly fashion with no frill and no fun. they have like 2 things to worry about. Food and reproduction. Back in the day us humans didnt have any technology but as more and more time passes by us, we find more efficient ways to do everyday things like transportation. many years ago people had to walk to go anywhere. then they had a huge advancement in technology. now they could ride horses. Then came the car. Then flight. soon after this we were in space. None of us one can even imagine how more advanced we will get. back to the ants. what if the ants had complex lives like us ie: school collage workforce children retirement. But they all some how found a super efficient way to bypass all of this. Some how they figured out how to beat the system many years before the first humans even populated the earth. And now the ants are so evolved and so efficient they are far more soupier to us humans . but what if they were just like us and as more time passes by they find simpler ways to accomplish there goals until that goal is simply so efficient it is overlooked (transportation in the future might be as simple as typing in a location on the other end of the world and instantly you are there) and they find and tackle a new goal. The ants don't even remember the days when they all spoke out in different ways when they were unorganized and all had free wills. Right now our human population could be suffering from this same predicament as the ants now face. Also what if us humans and our world is simply just a ant colony in the huge vastness of the big picture. Our galaxy! and we are being studied by other life forms who are even less organized and less effecent as us humans who they think of us as little ants in our own little world with no purpose. so yeah if you guys can understand what i am trying to say then you will probly freak out. leave me some other thoughts you might get.
