Many thousands of years ago Homo sapiens might have inhabited this planet along with other species they could potential communicate and breed with, such as the Neanderthals and Homo erectus. Today, we are alone, the gulf between us and any other species on the planet is quite wide. Thousands of years ago humans had an interspecies kinship with the early hominids that I have certainly never experienced, and I wonder how this relatively new singularity has affected us. I wonder if these ancient relationships are what has instilled in me an ardent longing for recognition by other animal species. The curiosity of our distant past is what drives me to investigate more about animal intelligence, communication, and interspecies relationships, with the hope of gaining more insight into the workings of the universe. We are all connected, the chain of evolution links us together, yet I still know relatively little about any other species.
