now that seeker1 has shown us that we all should be equally intelligible.
let me ask, does that same argument hold for other species? where do
we draw the boundary between intelligibility between us and all the other
species? between us+apes vs everything else? between all mammals and
the rest? because the same arguments apply as seeker used. probably
for humanoids/anthropoids the grey matter is likely very similar, so we
should be intelligible to apes assuming we can communicate with them.
but where does the difference become too great???
