Mr Hasegawa, please reconsider!

“Please reconsider!”; the ant said.
I was listening to a radio talk show when the host mentioned a research identifying 20% of an ant colony as being lazy.
Indeed, even in mainstream news, there was an article about it.
However, I beg to disagree with the scientist.
It is just not scientific to equate appearances of idleness with laziness.
Moreover, you are from a hard-working culture that appreciates silence and economy of action.
Furthermore, we have been here before when some evolutionary biologists coined the phrase “junk DNA” and went around advertising it to the world. They thought non-coding DNA were non-functional. How wrong they were! Without non-coding DNA, there would be no cell.
Some creatures do work by moving their physical body while others rack their brains.

“And you see the mountains, thinking them rigid, while they will pass as the passing of clouds. [It is] the work of Allah, who perfected all things. Indeed, He is Acquainted with that which you do.
Quran 27:88 [Chapter on Ants ]
