It almost looks shopped.

Aw, they look like a tiny spiral galaxy. I bet Ant Carl Sagan put them up to this.

Yea, dude; dark matter at work.

The ant galaxy lacks a dark matter halo, you can tell by the rotation difference between the center and outer edge. Instead, it's fear that holds them together, the fear we all feel when we ponder them in our eyes.

They're warping in a pylon.

This is a perfect image for a horror movie poster, only lacking a hand reaching up from the center, crawling with ants and covered in bites.

They are forming an ant singularity.

I'd imagine this is a problem in the field of swarming AI because engineers can't get away with "half of them just die of stupidity" like God can

hey fluffy!

care to activate my "that shit is alive" tag?
fluffy - 2010-09-15
I would but I still try to adhere to the "no profanity in tags" rule, not that anyone gives a shit anymore.

One of the related videos on YouTube is basically the same thing, with Russian subtitles and what sounds like a Rammstein sound track.

Fluffy done fucked up when choosing the video is what I'm saying.

For those of you who are interested:

This is sometimes known as an Ant Vortex. It occurs when a number of ants within a colony marauding army ants accidentally crosses its own path and identifies the existing chemical trail as the route defined by those ahead of it in the column. They follow the misidentified trail, now a closed loop, and reinforce it for other ants.
The confused ants will circle continuously in a slowly tightening circle until they die of exhaustion.

Australian army ants circle counter-clockwise.

fluffy - 2010-09-15
These can also be induced by placing a circular barrier around a large troupe/herd/whatever of ants long enough for them to establish the pattern. Remove the barrier and they'll keep on going.
