    I heard that there are these turtles that are still alive from the days of the Civil War... I'd like to chop it up with them. Hopefully they'd be coherent. I'd talk to a may fly too.

    Some kinda poverty of logic though .....?

    Sperm Whales. I'd ask them about Giant Squid.

    Harsh!

    In defense of Grayscale, the thread premise is more an exercise in creativity than logic.

    What would you ask ? You cannot divide the half hour up and talk to more than one category.
    Categories -
    ( 1. ) Mammals
    ( 2. ) Plants ( an entire field or "crop" or a lone tree )
    ( 3. ) Insects ( a swarm or "hive mind" that might be the Queen or some collective
    ( 4. ) Bird ( flock ? - less certain of it being mostly one voice )
    ( 5. ) Lizard
    etc.

    Which category would you pick and what would you talk about ? Would you talk to a pet or would you talk to something you are even more curious about ?

    Don't bother asking me how detailed their answers can be, as this is obviously not a scientific question. Just for farts and giggles. The speech may occur in a mind to mind manner and does not require a tongue etc. It might be very simple, if you are talking to a simple being. "Am I a good dog?" ( present tense only ) might be a question your pet would ask you. Or change the rules to suit yourself.
    Yes.
    Thank you, Kuranes.

    Category is not science.
    Perception is.

    Reflection is a stand by.
    Intelligence is vision.

    To judge is to narrow the vision.
    It serves no purpose if the vision is wrong.

    Profound as always, Wildcat.

    You are correct:
    To develop a cognitive roadmap,
    Is to exclude possibility.

    To find the correct answer one way,
    Is to avoid finding it in others.
    That isn't to suggest the answer is even necessarily correct -
    Rather that its arguments are immediately falsifiable.

    The ends and the means -
    Whether in terms of one's scientific grammar,
    Or through mathematical sculpture:
    Create a beautiful panorama.
