In the UK and Australia I've seen all kinds of Spiders that I either can't find in library books or find online....Maybe a web designer could create an insect site where people post pictures and the like.

If there is a NWO that wants to depopulate the world why not use giant, insanely fast and bloodthirsty super-venemous spiders? There have been worse plots on the Sci-Fi Channel

A moth once flew in my room one summer and it was huge probably the size of a golf ball a fat and round thing it was, and it was bumping into my light bulb and making it rock about,i evacuated the living room and went to bed it had gone the next day thankfully

notice at the top of the article...


Ancient genes activated by dab of hormones
Ants seem to contain a 'toolkit' for creating monsters
May be a throwback to ancestors from millions of years ago


Why is that impossible for humans to have the same potentialities? some monsters... some 'angels' or 'superhumans'...

I'd think it's at least.. plausible... with this new info about the ants...

Humans having ANCIENT genes 'activated' by certain hormones produced by an 'activated' endocrine system (chakra system)

superpowers via activated chakras \ kundalini...

junk DNA anyone???

Wow that is food for thought! We could be entering a very strange world....I really hope we can step up some frequencies.....maybe the world management team will be left to deal with all these odd creatures whilst we get some relief.....Que the sceptical scorn?

From what I have gathered this is not GMO. This is the application of a hormone native to the ant's system that when applied in this way causes this morph to occur. This is completely within their genome and this phenotype modification is caused by hormonal influences, which can be applied by ants in certain situations, as said earlier in this thread

Okay, I'm failing to see the distinction within that difference. If anything, doing it with a simple method is a bit worse. I suppose true 'GMO' is genetics labs, splicing different genes together from different sources. How is finding and isolating methods to turn specific genes off and on within the same life form not genetic manipulation and engineering?

Different method...but I doubt anyone would see the difference or...will.... when they finally figure out how to carry this little trick across species. If it works on one, I'll betcha it'll work on others...perhaps even humans, if techniques were adapted 'just so' and they have years to perfect it.

So... In the general world of genetic manipulation, isolating the artificial method to flip on the gene that creates a Super-Freak ant is just as wrong as mixing two species to achieve a similar result, IMHO. In both cases, it's changing what that life becomes and doing it at the genetic level. Bad idea...and as I've said before, Nature is nasty about things when crossed.

That is one freaky looking ant I am surprised it can hold the weight of that huge head up.Question is has the brain been enlarged too. Super intelligent killer ants.

Did anyone actually read the article?
They did not create anything.

These supersoldiers occur naturally.

They just figured out how to trigger it.

Anyone reading? It is only a couple short paragraphs.

WHAT? everyone knows what happens when you get bitten by a genetically altered spider......... spandex suit here i come

Ok call it egging on creation if you like.....with a 'special' hormone. What's not clear is how the hormone was created or found. If this technique is mixed with gene splicing then who knows?. Anyway it's normal for people to be excitable.

A better link

BBC

PLEASE... when posting science or nature stories try to find a source that ISN'T the Daily Mail! The BBC or reputable science sites normal cover the same material in a less sensational way...

Wow, have any of you played fallout 3? On there in a post apocalyptic world you meet a scientists that is doing experiments on ants making them giant ants. weird

The ants aren't man mad.
The title is a bit misleading.

The ants already have this capability.

Makes you wonder the role hormones play in the developmental process.
Especially with humans.

I would like some of the Monster Hormones! Wonder if it could be used on any other species, like microscopic ant related species, so we can study them better.

I've been making this point about our species and the stupidity of some of our societal model for a little while now.

The right environmental conditions - OR SOCIETAL ENGINEERING THAT MIMICS IT - has a great likelihood of unlocking primal human archetypes in societies that are there because they are part of our survival programming.

When I think about it, I really start feeling quite savagely primal myself. Les Tetes de Merde.

is this 'special hormone' available for testing on other species?
human embryo? (my lady asks...)
or only limited to a specific ant?

I don't mean to derail, but their is a web site that helps people identify different species. Project Noah allows people to upload photos of living things (insects, plants, animals, etc) and other members identify the creature.
I've used it for a few plants I couldn't identify.
