Resistance Is Futile.

What goes through the mind of a bee? Does a bee have its own thoughts, or is being part of a hive-minded collective like being a part of the Borg?  Can an organism with swarm intelligence have a private identity, or does the community simply add each individual’s biological and technological distinctiveness to its own?

Lower your shields. Resistance is futile.

On this episode, Keera and Kira examine the decision making process in communities of bees, birds, neurons, and slime mold, and discover what life is like as part of a hive mind.
