# SWARM /// Ants, termites, bees, birds, fishes etc.

Here are two articles to introduce the swarm as an intelligent animal group. One is from the National Geographic, it is very complete and tries to see very much the human application (see also the photographs gallery) and the other is from the New York Times and even if it more concise, it proposes those two diagrams which are very important to understand how those colonies of ants and other animals evolves as swarm to create a collective intelligence.

Hi friends, I'm very happy today because my result came out negative with the help of Dr Helios, i have been suffering from herpes virus for over 2 years, and i have been taking normal medicine, i spent time and money but still, there was no solution. (a problem share is a problem solve) it was a friend of mine who introduced me to Dr Helios, i have no choice but to contact him and told him my situation, he sent me three types of herbal medicine and also the instruction on how to use them day and night, i did as he said, but to my greatest surprise i came out negative for the last test.
i know that so many people are going through such virus, so if you have been taking medicine from pharmacy or from the hospital and they are not working then give a try to herbal medicine, forget about who, or where is he from (what matters to you is good health and life).
if you wish to give a try here are his contacts Email: drhelioseghemeno@gmail.com or WhatsApp him on this Number +2349155254974
