Recommended Posts

u never explained it and it makes no sense. it is like saying 1+1=1. it just doesn't work.

Metabolism is a function.

 

The processes involved in our metabolism function are a mechanism.

The mechanism is a property of the function, also called a child node (call it child 1).

 

The processes involved in a yeast cell's metabolism function are also a mechanism. They are another property of the function: call it child 2.

 

Child 1 and Child 2 are both properties of the function (the parent node). They are sibling nodes, but they are not identical.

 

 

We have not changed the number of functions we know about. We have only ended up with different mechanisms that are properties of that function.

The chances of an alien life form being more intelligent than us is almost a dead certainty.

 

They just won't be as good-looking.

wat makes u think the metabolism will be the same. metabolism is the sum of all chemical proccesses in an organism

I am confused, but then that isn't new.

 

The original question was about a life form more intelligent than human beings, correct?

 

How did the thread get sidetracked into body functions?

 

If your assumption starts with the supposition that all intelligence must be essentially the same as ours then you would look for similarities in biological structures.

 

But intelligence is the ability to learn and use what you learn and to reason without physical assistance.

 

It is not exclusive to human beings, even on this planet.

 

The assumption should be that we have already been exposed to many forms of intelligence, and that the fault of recognition lies in our limited abilities to think outside the box.

There are various intelligent mammals, dolphins and the higher primates for a start.

What you're doing now is crapping on the efforts of a not-inconsiderable number of researchers and pioneers.

Well this is nethier here nor there but some thing in life are strange..example most every thing on earth has two of what ever.ie 2 eyes, 2 arms, 2 halfs of a brain, 2 exact sets on teeth on both sides,2 ears, 2 lungs, 2 nuts, 2,kidneys so and so on...same for animals/bugs and all that"right" my point is don't it seem weird we don't see an animal or what ever with one eye or on 3 legs or some shi? like that...it's just funny how so many things come in 2s....oh well just a rant...

That's because many animals are bilaterally symmetrical, they have two sides that are more or less mirror images of each other. Things like trees or bacteria don't have paired features very often.

where is the proof?

 

I suggest you look up work done by Jane Goodall and other fellow primatologists. :rolleyes:

 

ne1 give them the SAT?

 

Let's not take this into the realm of stupidity. But even so, a Chimp can be tought to do a great many things. I'm not going to go into the details, but for a better example, one where you don't have to read anything, when was the last time you've seen a circus?

you can train any animal to do things. positive reinforcement for when it does good, punishment for whenit does bad. that doesn't mean it is intelligent

Well, then why don't you try teaching a language to one.

You've ever seen the movie "Congo"? Well, the guerilla using ASL was not science fiction(maybe the device was).

 

Chimps have been taught a limited version of ASL, and then nature took over. They(chimps) took the ASL language that they were taught and created new and more colourful communication and forms of expression.

 

But I'm sure you Knew that both before and after your last post, riiiiiiight? :rolleyes:

The fact that we told you why it was wrong, and that you just parrotted the same thing over and over, suggests otherwise.
