    When considering how exploding termites could evolve, instead of thinking of individuals or the colony or the queen, think of the gene. In evolutionary terms, individuals or communities are both just means of reproducing the genetic material.

      That is such a simplistic view of genetics that it doesn’t even deserve a response. Reproduction of genetic material is a primary driver for organisms but you say that like the gene has control. That is clearly false.
