CCD: The Mission?

"If the bee disappeared off the surface of the globe then man would only have four years of life left." - Einstein.

The "scientific community" is so far unable to fathom the astonishing, mysterious, and catastrophic destruction of the honey-bee population over the last 12 months. U.S. beekeepers are reporting losses up to 70 to 90 percent of their bees in a phenomenon that has been termed Colony Collapse Disorder (CCD). In May of this year US Congress held hearings and funded research to solve the problem. I read about this recently, and dimly recalled hearing about it late last year.

I'm sure plants can be pollinated artificially, but as it stand right now I don't know exactly how critical bees are to civilization's production line. Are they the ones that pollinate crops, fruits and vegetables, plants for livestock feed?

I think Jung would say that I need to ask of my dreams, "Why bees?". It's true that whoever the agents are, it is unlikely that they are bees. So why did they take the form of bees in their communiques?
