    to go totally uncreative here, I'm going to say that I'd talk to my dog It would make long car trips signifigantly more interesting!

    Though it would be pretty interesting to talk to a non-mammal life form to see how they think and such

    What would you ask ? Can you give me a fictional dialogue that you think might be the way it would go ? ( You can still redeem your creative cred, in other words. )

    I'd probably ask the dog why he sticks his head out the window of a moving car, but is offended by the hair dryer. Also, it would be interesting to learn the value of sniffing other dogs' asses, why he won't swim when every other dog I know loves to do so, what he would actually DO with the bigger dog if I let him off the leash to run towards him and other such basic behavioral questions.

    It would also be interesting to hear what questions and comments the dog might make towards me- that's what would be most interesting- how does he THINK?

    That line was good enough that I won't keep pressing you to guess what his answers would be.

    You are correct:
    To develop a cognitive roadmap,

    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.

    What happens when the sun sets?
    Yes.
    You said it better than I did.

    There is no objective answer.
    The answer is dependent on the question.
    The question is about the motive.
    The motive is not objective.

    The object does not question.

    I would ask the plants if they feel sex and experience orgasm.

    You could then tell Night to let the bees know.

    I would ask: Considering you live a week at most, have no way to speak or eat, will never see your mate again, and never know your children --is it still worth it?
    It would be really interesting to know how these creatures see life.

    Precisely - your insight is stronger than mine.

    Strength:
    An expression of character?
    Character:
    An expression of virtue?

    Our object was the impossibility of objectivity -
    As a function of human analysis.

    Objectivity:
    An expression of impartiality?
    Not so long as we apply it.

    Objectivity is owned by the object.
    Not its audience.
