    In this video I show you how I made an ant think it was dead by putting a specific chemical on it that ants use to signal when they have died. This is how ants know to put the ants that have passed away into the ant graveyard.

    It doesn't actually think it's dead. It thinks that it smells like oleic acid, which it does, and that smell triggers a certain behaviour. I wonder if they are even aware of the concept of death.

    The ant must have told the ants about this. They must think that after death you just join the colony as a new ant
