What If There Were Another Technologically Advanced Species?
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.
