    • Imagine being a bee and going back to the hive just find out that all the circles have become hexagons and the rest of the hive is chanting O P T I M I Z E D

    • Bees know that hexagons hold the most volume with using the least amount of material when making the hive. Well I guess they don’t really know but they’re instinctually able to create them.

    • What’s truly awesome is that the hexagon is nature’s strongest shape and it’s not uncommon for rock formations to be long striations of hexagons. There are actually entire mountain ranges that are tall hexagonal tubes. Check in California.

    • Bees are programmed to rotate on an axis while laying down the honeycomb. Tightly packed circles compress into hexagons under the weight of the ones on top of them. Hexagons just happen to me more efficient. The bees don’t know anything about geometry. It’s an accident.
