Learning from bees

So what they do is for the function of the whole unit. They all come. They do their job, and then they pass as they should. But everything is done for the sustainability of the hive, and they don't fight with each other. They chase their certain Bee bouncers at the front to keep out predators and other types of bees. And so, by functioning individually, they make the whole unit stronger in the world. And we could certainly learn how to do that better

Restoration efforts ?

I do have a follow up question, which is the obvious one that we're all worried about. They talk about bees being really the domino effect, the fact that some of them are dying off in droves in different areas of the world, and what that means for the ecosystem that they're part of. Are you aware? I know people have been paying attention to this. Is there any success in that?

Bee The Best!

Every house has a box, which they keep as a Beehive, they don't really do much, but keep a clean hive. And once the bees are done with it, they very humanely. Without disturbing the bees, without killing the bees, they take out the nectar and they still leave some so that the hive can survive for the next season

Collaboration & living with a purpose

Hey, thank you for sharing these fun facts. Some of them I have come across earlier as well, but when you kind of talk about them and it kind of comes together very well, one thing that struck me the most was how collaboratively they work, helping each other grow and living with a purpose, a vision, even for the brief time that they have on Earth. In a way, I guess they are nature's best team players so much that we could learn from them

I do admit, bees have always really freaked me out. I've never been stung, but there's just something about the look of them. The Crawley, creepy crawly, little weird appendages. They're fuzzy, but they can hurt you. Anyway, I've known for a long time that they're actually very gentle, intelligent, beautiful creatures

Saving the bees @zlisbonZLisbon@DBPardes

That's what they need as they need flowers to get nectar. And the nectar is what makes the honey. We need to save the bees, for sure. And the best way to do that, like I said, is to plant be loving plants. And even though they're scary bees, they do sting. They also pollinate. And that's the most important part of our food system is being able to cross pollinate as far as the honey goes

@bagold4867

And when we were kids, the word a was in the Alphabet was always associated with an Apple. So of course the word a read as read to you. But I think that one is a coincidence. Like the letter H is very Orange to me and I don't know where that would have come from. That doesn't come from the Alphabet anyway. So the thing with bees is like, of course they're very yellow and black and classically yellow and black

Hallucinogenic honey

One of the cool things that honey does when we're in relationship with bees and not extrapolating extracting from them, but more like in Communion with them, honey really helps our immune systems, actually prevents people from getting sick. In many communities around the world, it's been used as a tool to help with it's. Antifungal, antivirus, antiviral, antibacterial. I mean, it's amazing now, like, hospitals are using it literally like in the hospitals. Right
