You’re a Bee. This Is What It Feels Like. – The New York Times

This is a great text/visual piece on bee-life. It also suggests that boundary that was brought up in 3B class today about knowing the inside of another, knowing another’s consciousness and how that connects to personal knowledge vs shared knowledge. A whole host of similar questions spin off of this wonderful piece. So try your hand at bee-life. Be the bee.

ps. if you really groove on this kind of thing, there is a really famous philosophical paper that explores the question. It’s by a philosopher named Thomas Nagel and it’s entitled, “What’s it like to be a bat?”. It’ll put the hurt on your head but in a good way.
