QUOTE:"The brain of a honeybee is vastly simpler than that of a human. To put it in perspective, your brain has about 86 billion neurons while a bee has under 1 million. So, the fact that bees can—on some level—grasp the concepts of zero suggests other animals might be able to do the same. At the very least, it shows that a bee’s modest brain is capable of some surprising feats.
“'Their brains are probably processing information in a very clever [i.e., efficient] way” Dyer said."

The evidence for autonomous organismal intelligence mounts with every one of these natural wonders. Thank you again.
