“At a certain point in their careers, great jazz musicians are almost bound to disappoint their fans. Think of John Coltrane venturing into free jazz in the late 1960s or Miles Davis going electric a few years later. The vision that made them great the first time pushes them into new territory, and the magnitude of their early accomplishments—and the number of admirers they have attracted—makes their public’s sense of betrayal all the more bitter. All they can do is keep playing, undaunted by the dissent.”
Thus opens a review of Edward O. Wilson’s “The Social Conquest of Earth.” What caught my eye was the accompanying photo (included here with a link to the article) and what it seemed to say about groups / teams in the insect world. At least I think that’s a subject. Again, I like the photo. The article also references a work by Paul Gauguin.
Just a kind of fun / what if / here it is post.
