Natalie Wolchover What if Neanderthals, who bit the dust just 28,000 years ago, had instead wised up and were now living next door? Or what if, during all these millennia that humans have been evolving, some unrelated creature had evolved cognitive and technological prowess in keeping with our own? Another scenario: what if humans had split into two separate species =97 the original gangsters, and a successful evolutionary offshoot? These are all perfectly reasonable histories of the world that would have resulted in two advanced species of Earthlings living side-by-side today. They're just not the histories that happen to have happened. But what if they had? Would we break bread with our brainy cohabitants or be locked in a constant battle for supremacy? Oh, them =96 just ignore them In this hypothetical world, there would be three possible relationships between humans and "others," said William Harcourt-Smith, a paleoanthropologist at the American Museum of Natural History. The most likely one is that competition for resources would cause us to fight, constantly. [More at site... thanks to 'The Norm' for the lead] Listen to 'Strange Days...
