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? Cheers Ray D Listen to 'Strange Days...
