It basically said that with new research, we now have evidence that Chimps are significantly move evolved than humans. Do you think that there's a tendency in humans, to presume that we are the superior being, whether it be evolution, or intellect? Are we the most intelligent being?
The only intelligences that we can measure is intelligence which is similar to our own, and us, being an unique species, makes it seem a little arbitrary to think the only way an animal is as evolved or as intelligent or as savy as us is to see them doing human like things. Do you think that there may be another animal on our earth which can conceptualize and comprehend things beyond our wildest dreams, yet has no way to express its thoughts?
Most of what humans accumulate intelligence wise we are taught, and to say a daulphin is not as smart as us because it doesn't do certain things, things that humans can only do because they were taught to, seems a little unfair. Do you think there could be a better way to see past our human nature and measure intelligence equally and fairly?
