    Amazing. Gives me goosebumps.

    In the 1930s, British ornithologist Edmund Selous – also fascinated by Starling flocks – attributed the tremendous variety of their formations to telepathy! ,,, This recent discovery of a ‘non-local’ (beyond space and time) ‘quantum compass’ for birds has made the idea of ‘telepathic birds’ not such a ‘bird brain’ idea after all:

    Quantum compass for birds – January 2011
    Excerpt: In the new research, physicists at the University of Oxford and the National University of Singapore calculated that quantum entanglement in a bird’s eye could last more than 100 microseconds — longer than the 80 microseconds achieved in physicists’ experiments at temperatures just above absolute zero,,, The new prediction interprets data from earlier experiments that hinted at a quantum basis for magnetic navigation in migrating birds. In 2006, researchers in Frankfurt, Germany, netted 12 European robins migrating from Scandinavia. Researchers locked the robins in a wooden room and applied small magnetic fields tuned to a frequency that would disturb entangled electrons, if the birds indeed relied on entanglement to navigate.
    The magnetic field, at 150 nanoTesla, was about 300 times weaker than Earth’s magnetic field, so it wouldn’t be expected to confuse the birds in the absence of an entanglement-based navigation system. But with the magnetic field on, the birds flew randomly instead of all flying in the same direction.

    Those birds were probably having a great time. I would bring an umbrella.

    Makes me want to create my own flock of flying machines that can behave like that (as well as replicate, nurture offspring, regenerate components, find its own energy, etc.). Shouldn’t be too difficult seeing that the laws of physics stumbled there on its own.

    For a human designer it should be a piece of cake, right.

    All you have to do is come up with the design from first principles without using any trial and error in the process of design.

    This phenomenon is fairly common in fish, so we have seen it before. I’ve seen it in red-wing blackbirds, only with lesser numbers.

    Petrushka,

    Did you type your post by trial and error? I didn’t notice the millions of failed attempts.
