Comments: Wikipedia and Search Experts "Notability" Kerfuffle

Termites are not deliberately inscrutable - they simply have no idea as to who the architects of their mounds are.

Pluck a single termite from the mound and it's a vicious, self-centred little blighter with utter contempt for those who created the raw materials upon which it builds its demesne.

Seth, there is no 'architect'.

They only created an 'architect' in the Matrix movies because the audience would otherwise have created one.

Byzantine politics are inferred only because the hive is too terrible a prospect to countenance as an explanation.

There is no god.
