Ants show left bias when exploring new spaces

The most baffling aspect of our physical world to me is the handedness which is imposed on most living beings! No explanation for it at all, and how it came about even larger mystery.

Handedness appears in Maxwell's Equations (cross product) which is even more exciting to note.

Even oddest:

Let V be a finite-dimensional vector product algebra, then d=Sum (e_i.e_i) e_i some orthonormal basis of V satisfies d(d-1)(d-3)(d-7)=0

Vector product algebra dimensions

For Real d, then spaces supporting such vector products are limited to dimensions 0,1,3 and 7.

This is one incredible question, that cilia have a concept of handedness!

For the movies in the reference John cited:

cilia spin in embryo

in chemsitry, they also have 'chirality'. in physics, they have baryon assymetry. it may be for ants they have just been indoctrinated by socialist doctrine to be leftists.

Given the way they treat other colonies for their resources, we might conclude they are right-wing under the guise of left tendencies.
