>Democracy is the rule of the people, 

freedom is gained from the fact that not any size scale is intrinsically 
more basik or important or complex than any other size scale.

one often is pressured into feeling that the concerns of
the majority are more significant than one's own immediate personal concerns.
this is based on the fallacious assumption that select sizes are in one absolute sense
larger than others.  it is this assumption which the circular scale undermines.

It's a sure sign of a weak constitution when one is as ugly 
as "Michael Gogins" <gogins at pipeline.com>

So short piles were at a competitive disadvantage.
As a result, the number of piles declined more quickly than before. 

In the original program, 
without any protection for tall piles,
the termites produced 157 piles after 1,000 iterations, 
With tall piles protected, there were only 85 piles after
1,000 iterations. 

But this rapid convergence to fewer and taller piles comes at a price.

After 2,000 iterations, the number of piles had shrunk to 82. 
But all 82 piles had at least 10 wood chips. 
So all of the piles were protected. 

The termites could not find any more wood chips to pick up. 
The number of piles would stay frozen at 82 forever.
