Ants – we can learn a lot from these 6 legged creatures that we tend to kill at any given opportunity. Having been influenced by the way that they rely on working as a collective, one of the things that struck me was their ability to support 100 times their own weight and make living bridges from nest to ground by linking their bodies by means of hooks on their legs. They essentially have a completely adaptable way of bridging gaps, blocking potholes, and connecting to new nests. Their lives depend on their ability to work together, and by being completely altruistic, they can can survive. This is in complete contrast to the social disconnection of those in Canary Wharf.
