An anthill can be described as a superorganism, with behaviours and interactions much more complex than those of an individual ant. We could find analogies between the superorganism and other living organisms, as memory for instance. Chemicals that ants use to mark paths, could work as a gigant memory for the superorganism.
Multicellular organisms can be seen as superorganisms compounds of many individual cells too.
Among cells, they recognise certain patterns in their surrounding and behave accordingly to play specific roles, that is why most of us have all our body's parts in their place.
Humans, are multicelular organisms that recognise patterns with a different level of complexity and change their behaviour to fit within specific roles in a group of individuals or society.
I'm sure that cells lack the level of comprehension that humans have, which brings me to the question...
Are we part of a more complex superorganism, that we lack the level of conprehencion to identify or even understand?
