i am a mechanical engineer (university degree, europe)
Recently i came across the following TED video:
The author compares various shapes of the honey combs, and finally concluded, that bees ‘agreed on’ the most efficient shape (hexagones ) for the maximum storage capacity…
from the video:
“they (bees) agreed on an ideal size (shape) and returned to work…”
Why the author of the video speaks to me like i was mentally ill ?
"Bees agreed on ? "
from the video: “Hexagonal-shape is probably the result of trial and error … long evolutionary history… bla …bla …bla…bla…bla…bla…”
Bees agreed on ?
Trial and error ?
Where are all the errors ?
CAN ANYBODY SHOW ME THE ERRORS ?
Where are some circle / triangle / rectangle - shaped honeycombs ? Was something like that ever found ?
Where are all the trials and errors ?
An engineer asks:
There are like 10,000,000 kinds of species on Earth right now, how many ‘errors’ did you biologists and other experts find so far ? like 5 or 10 ?
Can someone explain to me ?
