A “dome-shaped structure” could also be described as a 3 dimensional bell curve with normal distribution… which can only mean that someone’s been teaching all of the bees how to use statistics. But who?

We need to follow the money. What’s their endgame? Why is this so important that they’re willing to infiltrate every hive? How high up does this thing go!?

No, we must think “cui bono?”. Who has an advantage because of this?

high enough for someone to try to eliminate the bees. what stakes does roundup have in the game?

That’s very impressive given that even a tiny amount of motion results in motion artifacts in CT images.

"Getting bees to sit still for their X-rays took some work, noted Olga Shishkov, lead author of the study and a postdoctoral researcher in the Peleg Lab at BioFrontiers.

First, the researchers relied on honeybee queens to coax thousands of worker bees to join into swarms in the lab—these structures, which often hang upside-down, look a bit like a wriggly Jell-O mold. Then, the team rotated those swarms in front of a small CT machine originally developed for veterinary hospitals."

The magnetic field is more important than the brain.There's a lot more complicated information in it

close, but not quite. it's literally hive mind, where the term originated.

>following surprisingly sophisticated mathematical rules

Surprising? Yes, because our assumption on what is capable of what we might be able to comprehend is wrong.

Do Bee's follow the rules, or do sophisticated mathematical rules, follow the Bees?
