Ants despite nil ability to abstract are smart. Humans despite relatively great ability to abstract are way too often stupid. Ants attention is probably almost entirely on the moment. Humanity’s attention is so often distracted from distraction by distraction that they miss not only the incredible detail available to experience directly in the moment in their present time environment but become so habituated to abstraction that they’re stuck inside their own heads…and barely experience the moment let alone perceive it as the vibrant and by all accounts by saints and poets like Blake, the place where wisdom and ecstatic experience can only be had. Do I advocate pre-frontal lobotomy or something? No, only to heed the following two quotes: “The mind is a wonderful servant, but a terrible master. “The intuitive mind is a sacred gift and the rational mind is a faithful servant. We have created a society that honors the servant and has forgotten the gift.”
