Post #1: Theory


"I am Ant-drew Ryan, and I am here to ask you a question. Is an insect not entitled to the sweat of his brow?

'No,' says the mantis in the brush, 'it belongs to the female.'
'No,' says the ant in the hill, 'it belongs to the queen.'
'No,' says the worm in the garden, 'it belongs to the earth.'

I rejected those answers. Instead, I chose something different. I chose the impossible. I chose...



Ant-ture.

A city where the black would not fear the red,
where the male would not be bound by his expectations to impregnate,
where the worker would not be constrained by the soldier.

And with the sweat of your brow, Ant-ture can become your city, as well."


This is an experimental idea, where-in I use the game "BioShock" to give me an excuse to submerge an ant colony underwater, and observe how the creatures thrive in a different environment.

As of now, it is in the conceptual stages. I am broke, and need to acquire the fund to purchase what I will need to forge The Great City of Ant-ture.

This will be where I update the masses with my progress, when work begins.

By the sweat of our brow, Ant-ture will become a reality.

  6. They say you can't do it. They say that it's impossible to build a city of ants in an aquarium.

    But it is not impossible to build Anture under the sea. It is impossible to build it anywhre else.

  12. This is easily one of the best things I saw today. You should open up a paypal because I imagine that someone feels the need to pay you large amounts of money to build this city, this dream, this vision.

  18. I want you to know that this is the first blog I've ever bookmarked in my entire life. But that wasn't enough I figured, so I deleted the bookmark and you are now my homepage. My hope for the future rides on you.

  19. Janitor didn't delete it, the thread long since hit bump limit and slid off to page 10.

    It got archived anyway.

  20. I'm not sure what the link to the Archive is, I didn't catch it before the thread 404'd.

    Working up a list for how much this is going to cost, now.
