"But no, that's a that's a fair a fair criticism. And I think that's certainly a conflict in in China presently in the you know, there are other motivations as well. Such as with, you know, the US sort of taking a a lesser role in the environmental leadership that there's a place for someone like China to step up and assume power. So there's power here as well. Yeah. It's it's steak, but as the this article by havi era, see Hernandez points out. There's there's more of an emphasis in these resulting environmental movements. Living in harmony with nature rather than what is perceived as western take on saving the earth to come back to the distinction. We were talking about earlier. So it's don't kill the whales. Not save the whales. Right. Yeah. And I think this is interesting in light of by filial because I think it's very in keeping with the message of of stewardship understanding biodiversity. But at the same time, we see that that very save your message, you know, invoked in materials promoting Edward Wilson, and by affiliate that like that Harrison Ford video you're talking about he describes it quote as an epic battle to save our planet. And it will involve swords and magic staves. And yes. And then, you know, there are some people will actually bring technology into this argument as well. Wilson himself said that the more we understand organisms through science the closer we become to them in while technology can arguably distance ourselves from nature as well. It can bring his closer molecular biology and genetic engineering, for example, bring us closer to nature because it's a greater understanding, and you can even argue that the search for extraterrestrial life to is a bio Philip endeavor. Oh, I mean, the SETI is almost a perfect example of bio feely, if there is any merit to the idea because like there are millions of planets out there that we could be interested in and what are we interested in? We're interested in the ones that have life on them right now. Could you could say that there? There's just sort of like a cognitively recognized self preservation instinct, right that we we say. Okay. If there's another planet with life on out, there could be a threat to us could help us. So that we have motivations based in our cognitive capacities to understand that life has this this value out there, but that's not the only kind of life. We're interested in people have been looking for microbes in the soil of Mars for decades now, and we scoop up the soil of Mars, and we wanna see things alive in it. Why do we care so much about that? I mean, and that's not just scientists who care I understand why scientists care because it's part of their life's work. But but the average person really does care usually whether there's life on Mars. That's an interesting question to them. Why? Well, because the answer ends up saying, I mean, ends up saying something about ourselves and about life itself, you know. But but also, I think just because life is interesting. Yeah. The the presence of life somewhere makes that place so much more fascinating than an otherwise dead rock covered in loose, soil and stones. This makes me wanna see more sort of darkly. Edward Wilson type characters and some of our Sifi Har, you know, someone who's going to really just reach out and touch the Zina morphs and loved them. I guess we do see characters like that in the various alien films and red dwarf comes to mind in resurrection. Can't speak any anything positive alien resurrection. Let's move on. All right. Well, let's move on. Let's take one more quick break. And when we come back, we'll get into measurable bio-, biological evidence for bio Phileas as well as some evidence against it. Investigators have been desperate to figure out how that family flew off that cliff in California, and whether it was on purpose early the morning of March twenty sixth rescue workers repelled down the cliff where they lifted the dead bodies of three children arm to the point where I no longer. I'm calling this an accident. I'm calling it a crime who are these women, and how did they come to adopt six children two sets of three black siblings..

"Check out and try and find the Queen. So if it's Edward Wilson. In center. I would expect there to be aunts. There are aunts. Yes. There's a huge display on ants. A giant ant that you can crawl on. Yeah. So it's it's it's really wonderful stuff. I I recommend going like, Honey, I shrunk the kids scale. Yes. Well, so before we get into the bio feely, a hypothesis, we I guess we should talk about Edward Wilson himself because one of the so he's got this book from nineteen Eighty-four. I believe is from the nineteen eighty s cold by feely aware, he first star ticky lates this idea. Now, he would explore it more and in a later book. But the this book by affiliate is a is a book I've read and it's a really enjoyable scientific memoir. A lot of what he talks about is like his research on aunts and his field work in places like Surinam and Papua New Guinea, and so he weaves together these themes from his life and from his work in science and his thoughts about what the role of science and society is the the idea that ties this all together is this idea of bio feely a- are innate affiliation with or desire to focus on other living life forms and natural landscapes. So or lifelike processes now there's some ambiguity in there. And we can address that MB giddy later in any probl-. That might cause for this as a hypothesis, but he definitely has a personal way of expressing his feelings about this idea. Right. It very much connects back to stories throughout his life. Yeah. So it's important to know that. Yeah. Edward Wilson is he's the real deal here. He is he's is a an acclaimed scientist specifically in a demolished, and he is in his very accomplished author. Like, he he officially retired in nineteen Ninety-six. But he's just continued to write books like on almost every year. I mean, he's bibliography is incredible. And his books are good. He's one science writers who who is actually a very very good writer. He's expressive and poetic, but he also gets to the point. I think he's one of the better scientists slash science writers in America. Yeah. And then and he's also very relatable, especially when you see him, you know, in person or video or a Ted talk. He's he's Alabama born he's very folksy. And he he describes himself as being essentially still a child at heart, and he has that kind of enthusiasm for nature. So I mentioned he was born in nineteen twenty nine an earlier biographical detail that often comes up in he attributed to being what sort of steered him into studying ants is that he was seven years old, and he blinded himself in one idea fishing accident. Yeah. What he pulled up a fish in the Finn got him red spiny fan got him in the eye and blinded him, and so he this led him to focus more. He says on little things things that he could actually get up, you know, get up close to with an eyeglass, so he turned to ans- into Malla. Gee, there's a game is key area of research. He attended the university of Alabama and earned his bachelor's and master's in biology, and he identified fire ants as an invasive species in reported on the first US colony fire ants that was while he was in college in college the early days for him. And this is we were just talking about this before we went on the air here. There's a video on YouTube, and it was. I believe it is aligned with the Wilson center. But it starts off narrated by Harrison Ford. Anne Attenborough comes in and talks about how how hell amazing Edward o Wilson is. So this this video is weird for multiple reasons. And one of them is that you hear Harrison Ford trying to sound in Tuesday's pastic about something which I don't know if I've ever heard before. Yeah. The most chronically board and unenthusiastic actor in the history of cinema, and we love him for it. Yeah. But he's he's talking about the greatness of the work of Edward Wilson. And he's still kinda has that lay. Connex sad not very excited edge in his voice. Yeah. Even though this is this is clearly like, he's clearly passionate about it. Like this for a reason? But later on in the video you're following Edward o Wilson like recent Edward o Wilson old Edward o Wilson. Wandering around in the Florida wilderness, coming up to a fire ant colony. He's reaches down with his bare hand stirs..
