Indeed you have missed much. They now know that dolphins are the second smartest things on Earth, and that they are as intelligent as human children.
Bellow that is the common American crow, which builds spears and traps, and is a problem solver, much like early man. Bellow that are apes, our most
common modern living relatives, who do similar things.
The list continues there on out pretty far. These species each have their own personalities.
Humans alone, and no other species, has spread across the world and done nothing but make the world its slave. We rape the Earth's resources, we
exterminated Neanderthals because they were in our way, in fact we exterminated our own common species until only our tribe remained 50,000 years ago.
The rest were starved to death because what resources remained we sucked away from our relatives. (and indeed, 150,000 - 50,000 years ago, there were
many more than just us and Neanderthals).
The most comparable behavior of ancient man is the common crow, who actually has battles with other birds. 5 or more crows will invade hawk territory
and hunt them down. They'll do this to squirrels, and even rarely a cat. They fashion spears to hunt down insects, they know traffic lights and their
meaning, and they are extremely clever creatures. However they do not seek to exterminate and change the environment like we do. Dolphins, though
smarter, have a radically different behavior. They are much like children, in par with their intelligence.
Thus, we will meet aliens. None of which will look like us.
