This bit about termites is so amazing, that it completely altered my understanding of the social order and man's supposed dominance of it. This termite colony's complex and unlikely construction is truly a testament to the incredible power of natural selection. The structure has air conditioning, a sewage system, food storage, fungus cultivation, and would be over a mile high if built to human scale. Truly astounding. Watch for the creepy shots of the termite queen near the end to see James Cameron's obvious inspiration for the queen at the end of Aliens.
