Is the propensity to build an innate yearning? My grandson Aiden was here the other day. He pulled out the set of Dominos I keep in an old oatmeal box. With quiet intensity he built and built.
First it was a fenced in corral for the domino horses. Then it was a hotel. Finally a tower with a microwave doohickey on top and a crowded parking lot below.
Bees build honeycomb. Kids build towers and parking lots. Grannies build (sometimes lopsided) trellises and planters.
I’ve never heard of bees taking down what they built. I’ll have to do some research. What happens if a honeycomb isn’t well-anchored? Do they just wait for it to collapse under its own weight, the way my grandson’s third tower keeled over when it was 27 dominoes high? Or do they somehow or other reverse the building process, chew up the wax, spit it out, and start over again?
I don’t know. Do you?
