How do spiders learn to make their web???
I went out for a walk in the cool summer night; on my way I found a local spider has managed to build a huge web that wasn't there a few hours ago.
How did it learn to make it?
Let's say it's in their genetic information. The instructions on how to build a web.
But how did the first spider figure it out?
I mean, it was born, and suddenly found that it has mutated, and can unleash this weird sticky thing unlike it's peers. And what does it do? Knowledge is not genetically transferable, and spiders can't speak.
Imagine yourself as a spider. Suddenly, you are a spider, and you need to build a web. Frankly, I think I would struggle with it at first.
And do spiders ask themselves pointless philosophical questions as well? What about dogs? Or monkeys?
