The Beekeeper’s Daughter – Part Nine

Part IX of The Beekeeper's Daughter, a story about Caleb, a humble beekeeper, and his daughter Jessica.

Part IX:

A strange thing about bees is that there is no good estimate of their population on the planet Earth at any given time. If we are to assume that the forces of nature are better in control of the bee population, then it likely isn’t growing as exponentially as the human population. Although the world population only doubled from 1 billion to 2 billion in 127 years, the doubling from 3.5 billion to 7 billion people took only about 40 years. Left unmitigated by disease and plague, the population of our great planet may soon outgrow its ability to properly serve itself.
With his daughter in tow behind him, Caleb was pondering this very odd nuance of population growth. He thought how much easier it would be for bees to continue to double, since there is no established social order in the world of insects. On the bike ride, Caleb and his daughter passed by several varieties of deciduous trees, which served to shade them effectively from the sun. In between shafts of light, he observed their beauty.
“If I gave you one penny and it doubled every day,” Caleb called back to his daughter, “do you know how much money you would have after 30 days?”
“Definitely more than I could carry!” Jessica called back, in her usual silly response, with a bit of a snicker.
