The Zombie Post-Apoc You've Never Seen Before: The Hive Mind
A hive mind is when creatures form a kind of collective consciousness. Usually it’s when the population reaches a certain number of individuals. Their minds become linked, like a computer network system, working together as if they were a single entity. Ants are creatures that can do this.
We’re lucky in the UK to have really fantastic nature documentaries made by the BBC. Sir David Attenborough has been educating the British public on nature for over fifty years, and it was while watching one of these shows that I learned about the ‘hive mind’. The number I’ve most often seen quoted is 50 million individuals.
I took this idea and applied it to a post-apocalyptic series called Blood Memory. The larger the horde zombies form, the more intelligent they collectively become.
And of course, every hive has its Queen…
You deserve a treat.
