A solitary ant, afield, cannot be considered to have much of anything on his mind; indeed, with only a few neurons strung together by fibers, he canít be imagined to have a mind at all, much less a thought.He is more like a ganglion on legs.Four ants together, or ten, encircling a dead moth on a path, begin to look more like an idea.
