Once upon a time, there was an ant with a dream. That ant realized that the entire colony could survive if they could grow their own food. That ant realized that the food should be kept underground where it was safe from other colonies and anyone that could harm it. That ant realized that the only food that could grow underground was fungus AND that fungus required food for itself. Then, that ant convinced all of the other ants to carry pieces of leaves to feed the fungus.
We will never have a leader like that.
