Meaning, that it does not matter if a being was culled from mammalian descendants, insectoid or reptillian, or whatever, that there is going to be a standard evolutionary outcome that will work the best no matter what. Considering what we are, mammalian bipeds, I would think that bipedal or something very close to that is prettry much all that is out there
for "intelligent" life. As of right now it doesnt look like that anything else has the adaptability and longevity of bipedal evolution, until something new comes along anyhow.
I could definately be completely wrong about it, but hey, I'm no evolutionary scientist either.....I'm just lucky to be a biped on this planet.

I dunno...Im no evolutionary scientist either but what about crocodiles/alligators, or the coelacanth. They are definitely "intelligent" and not bipedal. Their longevity is strong, their adaptability is strong, and their evolutionary scale is minimal. I guess this could go in part with sea turtles too.
