Subject: What Thinks About Thought Itself?

The point of the following article is the reduction of our
conceit regarding our own cognition... too often are we held up
by the homocentric concept of our "near perfect" and
"exclusively rare" intelligence...

When one can believe that humankind stands alone because of the
"impossibility" of off an planet intelligence (as a result of
smarts being so *rare*) he should be reminded that there have
been different species of hominids on this planet, alone,
evolving a "reach that exceeds grasp" (Neanderthal's brain was
physically bigger than HomoSaps and apes have learned to sign)
... keen intelligence of a type, forgetting the unguessed
intelligences of whales and other cetaceans, Octopi, and birds
(crows may be as intelligent as a five year old child)... It all
boils down to us learning to pay respect to what gets little if
none now, on this planet, and a vastly increased potential for
what _may_ exist - out there... because there is so much
_evidence_ of it happening down here!

We are not alone - even on (and of) _this_ planet... the sky's
the limit for anything else!
