What a passionate guy. Kuddo + 1
I do understand what he is trying to say. However...
We are only now starting to realize animals are way more intelligent then we give them credit for. They will never close the gap either until we stop
with comparing animal intellect with ours.
Just look at Dolphins.
Dolphins have huge brains and easily learn everything we teach them what is physically possible for them to do. Regarding the fact that they
understand what we want them to know but we, don't have a clue what they say to us.
Maybe they try to show us by corporation because we are simply to dumb to understand them. Animals aways have to reach human standards but there
are only few who can do it in an opposite way.
If we were talking about aliens and if our understanding of evolution is correct.
Any intelligent species first had to become the best fit and any starting point would probably be similar to ours. The intelligence and the
capability to construct.
Humans don't have any kind of instinctive knowledge and we have to learn everything by experience. Only the ability to understand two different
things and then use this understanding to combine them and implement it is special and you probably experienced yourself that when you gain an
understanding in one thing it gets utilized among everything else you know making something difficult easy. But any ofspring would not know this. But
it learns it way urly in life and essentially does not have to learn how you got to that point because it already understand because it understands
the workings of the new that came from the old. It starts with a pole position so to say.
Let the baby live with dogs and it will behave like a dog.
Do I make any sense at all
