  • Chimpanzees are better than humans at Observation Tower

    I can sometimes get to 7 numbers and got to 8 numbers once. Chimps can consistently do 9 numbers. Maybe they can do way more numbers if the game had more.

      A long time ago I saw some videos on YouTube of gorillas being taught sign language at a young age and using it in old age. Primates are highly intelligent.

        I thought there was an interesting relationship between how exercise raises cognition skills temporarily and has additional long term benefits with how chimpanzees, bonobos, etc are generally far stronger and more fit than humans. Simultaneously they also have the inability to control their muscle strengths in a more precise manner due to their muscles being much closer to the actual bone (also cause for higher muscle density though) with also affiliated lack of inhibitory responses even despite consciously knowing a counterproductive action has been done previously. Additional support was how that was actually remedied by introducing a third medium of logical thought (numbers) probably not yet tied instinctively. - That is a chimpanzee that had a vocabulary of 3000 human words, and having good understanding of what they all meant couldn't stop himself in choosing a dish with more "treats" when the human kept asking which one between he'd rather not prefer (then the dish was replaced with numbers and asked the same question - this time choosing the lower number).

        Foolish Mortal I wonder what would be the result of cross mating a human and a chimpanzee. Maybe the offspring could do physics and swing from trees.

        I wonder if they have tried this with other animals? Maybe even try to get a chimp to speak simple words? If a parot can vocalise words with a beak, surely a chimp can say something? Fascinating stuff!
