In the News (from Science Magazine): “Periodical cicadas have such a strange life cycle that some have argued they can count, and have a particular affinity for prime numbers. That’s because their broods emerge after lengthy periods of time; in North America, they appear en masse from underground every 13 or 17 years. Now, two researchers argue that the cicadas’ cycles are timed to ‘engineer’ the numbers of a mortal enemy—predatory birds. Contrary to what one might expect, these birds’ populations drop significantly the year cicadas emerge in all their buzzing glory, the scientists report in the current issue of The American Naturalist. …
“And yet mysteries remain. ‘We still don’t have a good theory that explains how the cicadas’ resource pulse causes the birds’ populations to reach their low point exactly 13 and 17 years later,’ says Walt Koenig, a behavioral ecologist at Cornell University and the lead author of the paper. ‘We’re still scratching our heads over that.’”
My Comment: Everything is controlled by the same program in which we are all included as a whole, complementing each other in order to bring all that exists to the same goal, when the whole mass, due to the conscious work of humans to unite with their own kind, adheres to the upper governance.
