why not, they can swim, they can disguise themselves as anything, they can communicate their feelings sometimes in a complex way, sometimes they can even hold two 'conversations' at the same time which i know i can't do, they can walk on land, they're predators which are always much smarter than herbivores (compare us to gorillas, polar bears to panda bears, and so on), they have an infallible memory, they can see patterns so well that they can predict the future (but probably not haha), they use tools and plan how they'll be using their tool, and so on, i reckon they have a lot of potential

or maybe this "dominance" that we exert on the world is a humans-only trait.

Sun, 07/17/2011 - 10:48am

yeah that's what i was thinking because every other species is able to maintain balance with its surrounding environment except for humans. so if humans were gone then there wouldn't be a dominant species, everything would be in balance

But human beings weren't always intelligent; we did, during a time, play proper push and pull with the earth. Any species technically has the potential for intelligence.

If it was the planet of the apes would they become humans?

Wed, 02/18/2015 - 4:44pm

Cant say for sure but according to my beliefs, no. An intelligent species other than human would have to come back and mix their dna with a primate to create a neanderthal again.

the apes would evolve to not have hair anymore similar to humans and eventually look the same becoming basically human, right?

like someone's said i think that nothing except us thinks in terms of dominance, and not even all humans think that way, it's just specifically us barbarians in our part of history who think like that.. it's because we think in terms of dominance that's why we have vegetarians and environmentalists and other people who have forgotten that we've never not been of the earth, but we've always been part of the system like everything else is, actually we're not the dominant life form, we're just one of them, we're answerable to greater forces just like everything else is.. like grass for instance, grass changed the world in ways we can only dream of.. it raised us up on two feet, made mammals grow massive, gave the horse its hooves, and so on.. and even grass is answerable to other things, and there's no end of the chain of dominance and submission because it's not a linear chain to begin with, it's a tangled up net, everything affects everything else

but you probably mean what'll be the next thing to make its own high technology.. what i think about that is that it'll be bees or ants or something similar, i think they have a lot of potential.. an inect colony can be as big or as small as it wants to be, it can build incredible structures (even as primitive as they are now termites can build climate controlled vertical megacities), they can achieve anything.. i think mammals have had their day, humans have shown the world how far a brain like ours can get us, the human brain is as smart as a brain can be in a body that works like a mammal's, and if the world wants to become smarter it'll have to look somewhere else.. insects, or maybe cephalopods, for some of the same reasons, their brains are spread out rather than localized like ours are, and they can become really small and enter tight holes, plus some of them are already as smart as dogs.. smarter even, i mean they have brains as heavy as dogs but they can do things that dogs can't, their brains are better than ours and it may be because they have them spread out over the whole body.. the other reason i think we're the last technological mammal is that only other primates have grasping hands, pongos or chimps might well take our place but dolphins never could.. but octopuses can grip things precisely too so it'd be between them and chimps unless it'll go the way i think where the earth destroys all mammals like it did to the dinosaurs, which had also reached the end of their potential and couldn't do any more for the earth

who say's we're dominant? more ants exist than us, so maybe they're the dominant ones...

This is one of my highdeas from awhile back. So if dinosaurs still existed and like everything else in history happened that needed to happen for humans to still exist. Who would be the dominate species? Cause humans may be able to communicate and create weapons but a dinosaur is like 40 tons and a lot of them have sharp claws and teeth with an all meat diet. It would probably be them. So what would we do as the secondary specie? Would we still be able to develop our resources as well as we have now in order to manufacture things and produce weapons that would be able to kill dinosaurs effectively? Probably not because dinosaurs would be to busy occupying, attacking, stampeding, etc. in all the places that humans would need to set up in order to mine and stuff. So in other words our intelligence may get us far but if there were giant beasts roaming the earth we would probably be fucked. An alligator has been around since the time of dinosaurs and it has evolved to the point that it has one of the most sophisticated immune systems ever. People? We may have some smarts to us but over all it does not take a lot to kill us. A spider can kill us, a cut that is left un cleaned can kill us, so many minor mistakes or wrong turns can kill us. But some freak act of nature happens and dinosaurs die off so they don't rule the earth anymore. imagine were they would be in evolution by now, defiantly at the top for sure.

if dinosaurs stayed the same and they existed with us they def wouldn't be anywhere near us we would eat them they'd be sold by street vendors n shit and others would be in zoos. The bigger carnivores would die off no matter what because them being so big theres nothing for them to eat that could sustain the whole species they'd kill off every other large mammal and would eventually fall victim to starvation. Maybe some herbivores would still exist but they'd be very endangered. The ones in the water would probably be best off except the bigger ones wouldn't have anything to eat either. Crocodiles, sharks, turtles, even birds were around back then and they're still here but they're different, given 65 million years if the dinosaurs didn't become extinct they'd just all evolve into the things we already have. And to answer this post it all depends on how far into the future we're talking dolphins and chimps would be dominant for awhile but eventually earths oxygen is gonna be destroyed or get fucked up along with the whole atmosphere in general so far enough in the future the things that will be here and be dominant will be cockroaches, jellyfish, anything deep deep in the ocean, probably bacterias if they count and that little microscopic bear thing that can survive in space my bets on him outliving all of them. The big thing that i don't think any other species could develop is space travel so they're all confined to how long the earth exists. I don't even think aliens are physical or biological so the same rules don't apply.

yeah those things i couldn't remember what they were actually called. Those things are crazy though i think if they exist here then there are WAY bigger ones out there in the universe.

Apes would dominate the lands and Orcas would dominate the seas as they currently do. The only reason Gorillas and Orangutans are going extinct is because of human interference (poaching, habitat loss ect.) Apes are capable of learning sign language, they are by far the most intelligent animal and they can fuck shit up. I hope this was helpful for you.

I don't think that there ever is a dominant species- just the "circle of life", but humans are an acceptation since we've over populated the earth and cheated evolution. But since we no longer belong to the circle of life, how much longer will we be allowed to live?

Sun, 02/22/2015 - 12:30am

the answer is cats. Just a couple tens of thousand of years until they develop those opposable thumbs and it will all be downhill from there.

Tuna, anything that wander's into the ocean, is already gone. Just listen to Detective Allen Gamble's recounting of one such event!

OK, first off: a lion? Swimming in the ocean? Lions don’t like water. If you placed it near a river or some sort of fresh water source, that make sense. But you find yourself in the ocean, 20 foot wave, I’m assuming off the coast of South Africa, coming up against a full grown 800 pound tuna with his 20 or 30 friends, you lose that battle, you lose that battle 9 times out of 10. And guess what, you’ve wandered into our school of tuna and we now have a taste of lion. We’ve talked to ourselves. We’ve communicated and said ‘You know what, lion tastes good, let’s go get some more lion’. We’ve developed a system to establish a beach-head and aggressively hunt you and your family and we will corner your pride, your children, your offspring. … We will construct a series of breathing apparatus with kelp. We will be able to trap certain amounts of oxygen. It’s not gonna be days at a time. An hour? Hour forty-five? No problem. That will give us enough time to figure out where you live, go back to the sea, get more oxygen, and then stalk you. You just lost at your own game. You’re outgunned and out-manned. … Did that go the way you thought it was gonna go? Nope.

What if we aren't the only race of homo sapiens in the Galaxy and we aren't actually a dominant species at all. We just seem like it cause we don't have any actual idea what's even out there beyond us.
