Imagine a world where cars don’t just drive themselves, but also chat with each other.
This isn’t a sci-fi scenario, it’s the imminent future of self-driving technology.
These vernacular vehicles promise to revolutionise our roads by optimising routes, scheduling travel times, easing traffic and elevating safety.
It’s a thrilling (and yes, a bit scary) prospect!
Less scary are… bees.
A single bee has a measly million cerebral neurons. Not the cleverest chap and a rubbish pet.
But consider a whole bee colony – it’s a super organism with a staggering hundred billion neurons, functioning with incredible coordination, knowledge-sharing and a hardwired instinct to collaborate.
Then there’s you.
The average person reading this message has 86 billion neurons. 🧠
And let’s face it – you’re above average. Right? 😉
Imagine if just you and just one or two others teamed up.
What honey could you make?
Your own mini hive.
The hive mentality works because of a key feature. Sharing.
When you share EVERYONE becomes better.
The sharer and the receiver.
The teacher and the student.
Take Christmas. The best bit of presents is not just the receiving, but MOST OFTEN the giving of gifts.
What are you doing to create a hive mentality?
