King Solomon, Pheromones and Congressional Legislators
Why should Congress Presidential Inauguration no shows smell? What are pheromones?
Definition of Pheromones
A chemical substance that is usually produced by an animal and serves especially as a stimulus to other individuals of the same species for one or more behavioral responses. For example, musk perfume lotions to attract mates or bees to seek out fragrances to obtain nectars
I have referenced below a Smithsonian scientific article of how bees are attracted by pheromones.
King Solomon and Bees
I referenced a poem written about King Solomon and Bees below which contains these verses.
While thus he pondered, presently he sees, Hard by the casement,—so the story goes,— A little band of busy, bustling bees, Hunting for honey in a withered rose. The monarch smiled, and raised his royal head; “Open the window!”—that was all he said.
I referenced below some origins of wise sayings related to smell. These sayings pertain to make a person be realistic or aware; to abandon a naïve or foolish notion. For example:
Wake up and smell the roses.
Wake up and smell the coffee.
Purpose of this Post
Scientifically, we know there is a chemical correlation to smell and brain functions in bees and mammals. Humans are mammals and as of yet, e do not know everything in regards to our same capabilities.
The reason I am bringing this up, is because the 2016 election is over and a new 45th President won and will be inaugurated tomorrow. They should “fess up” and accept (smell) the will of people’s choice and not act like a bunch of pouting sore loser kids instead of grown up leaders.
If they cannot, perhaps they need to learn about the bees who emit a chemical substance to help them find their way back to the beehive and do what bees are supposed to do as members of a beehive.
In My Opinion
Congressional members need to behave like adults and do what they were elected to do. That is to behave like grown up leaders of our nation (beehive).
In other words, their rose (party) has faded, yet they still are required as members of a beehive to gather to help produce honey. If not, they will instead help end the beehive (Nation).
You decide if my mammal olfactory glands are connected properly (wisely) to my thoughts on responsible behavior of Congressional leaders.
