Hi William,

Good story. However I should make it clear that 'non-fiction
interspecies civilization' was an expectation arived at by some
long-term evolutionary analysis - using the 'real evolution' of
Wallace, not Darwin.

As you probably know there's always at least three credible
evolutionary forecasts - short, medium and long-term. I.e you
can attain short-term 'success' by going carnivorous and gaining
in size and speed, but predators tend to go extinct at every
'horizon' (drastic change in conditions as seen by archeology)
while their prey usually survive and adapt, so adaptability and
intelligence are called for in the medium term.

What the long-term demands is a matter for conjecture but if it
involves getting along with more advanced - and technically
powerful - beings of (probably) entirely different evolutionary
backgrounds then it seems that tolerance, tact and complete
sincerity will be necessary. I.e. we wouldn't be well placed if
caught out in deception - even once.

So evolutionary theory tells us that humans like our present
politicos, media, lawyers etc will die out - or else they'll get
us all killed.

BTW - have read a few attempts at this, mostly unconvincing: As
an exercise try to imagine a conference between a carnivore, a
herbivore, a hive-entity, a vegetable being and a plasma
intelligence. See any common ground there?
