http://www.scientificblogging.com/howard_bloom/who_s_smarter_chimps_baboons_or_b acteria_the_power_of_group_iq_part_iii. The topic 'rears' its ugly "head" in SF many times, such as in "advanced intelligence," superior races," etdangcetera. Yes, it is an old topic, but are we prepared for what we might encounter "out there?" I really, really don't think so... (But I luv "cliche" topics that might result in something new. Think of this as an 'idea generator.' Hey, I'm bored in my old age! ;#) )

That's freaking fascinating.
I like baboons better than chimps anyway; always have.
