There may be another piece in the pie of communication that is important. It’s hard to fathom and well I even don't always come to complete
understanding and terms with it, but some scientists believe and are studying dolphins, whales, and bird’s usage of telepathy to communicate with.
We know that when we think we generate images and sounds within in our inner minds but what if other creatures are able to widely transmit this form
of thought and communication.
We sort of have our own form of this communication with film and TV, but perhaps other creatures are able to use projected images and sound in ways
that we have not developed or are capable of yet. Scientists and teachers believe that images and sound enable us to learn at a faster rate then text
so maybe these creatures are actually using a higher rate of communication then we give them credit for. Perhaps we are moving more towards projected
thought ourselves. We certainly have developed the tools for it, and you are using one of them right now to read this-
Tool usage and language are two forms we currently measure intelligence by in other animals and from time to time we are startled by the fact that
more and more animals are effectively using both. But we are still basing there intelligence on our relationship to them. This is part of our god
complex in my opinion, it is what enables us to justify using them as resources much like we have justified using slaves as lesser’s to help
maintain our positions over them. There may come a time when we are looked back upon as archaic in our beliefs and relations towards other living
creatures, just like we look back on Hitler and say he was a mad man and barbaric.
