Monkey's are the 4th smartest animals on Earth. Why not?


So what are the other three?

My guesses would be:

1. Dolphin
2. Chimpanzee (Or are including that in the monkey category?)
3. Ant

Actually, ant should probably be #1 IMO, but their type of intelligence is so vastly different from ours, it is hard to categorize.

Other choices would be octopus, coyote, crow.

I wonder how much trial and error went into their attempt?
You can't tell me they were sucessful on their first try. Oh the mental images of the monkeypult is a funny one.

Human, dolphin, crow, ape actually. Elephant next, I think. It's a close call between elephant and Whale. Elephant gets first because it can do things with its intelligence. Whales would be more or less emotional intelligence, and a bit of linguistic intelligence.

That would be the rate.

Indeed there are many kinds of intelligences. However, the ant would not be considered anything beyond elevated linguistic intelligence.

The ant has a 40 something character language, and that's about it. In order for it to have anything even really significantly intelligent, it would first have to evolve the ability to create and record new characters, and even more, attach meaning to them.

The 40 something language of ants essentially allows it to move, find food, attack, defend, and reproduce. Oh! And most interestingly, "bring out your dead" character.

However, although something to marvel at, it is no more intelligent than essentially a toy remote car. It is cool, yes, but not anything to say intelligent.


The intelligences of importance would be emotional, innovation, and tool use. Humans have all three plus linguistic intelligence, all in extremely high levels.

Crows would have exceptional tool and innovation intelligence. Dolphins would essentially be human children with elevated emotional intelligences.

So yea, there are a lot, but linguistic intelligence would only really be cool in ants when they have enough characters, and the ability to make new ones, and associate meaning to them. This cannot happen until brain development.

So sorry, ants don't even make the top ten.

I suppose it is entirely determinant on how you define intelligence, and really, I don't disagree with you because ants are not capable of music, art, or language. I still feel however, that there is something to the ant peoples intelligence that mankind is largely unable to comprehend or duplicate.

I, for one, welcome our new ant overlords.

I think this is a perfect example of mental slavery. The monkeys escaped only to find that they were too dependant upon their captors to take care of themselves. It happens with our judicial system all the time.

People are not taught how to think for themselves, they're led in the opposite direction to be controlled and kept in line.

Unfortunately it's happenning to the majority of our population. People are so dependant upon our government that they wouldn't know what to do without it.

How cool that they made an escape - they are smarter than a lot of people I know. Hope they manage to escape again, take more of their buddies with them and live happily ever after in the forest!

Actually we do understand the ant language. In fact, we have mastered it.

Also some other goodies for you're interest in ants.

Enjoy:

They must have left a ninja video running by accident or something. Monkeys are damn smart and I wouldn't doubt they'd pick up techniques form that or maybe they watched the summer Olympics on ESPN!
