What if you knew you could talk to a being ( or beings in some cases ) that lives here on earth, and that normally cannot speak to humans, for a half hour only.
What would you ask ? You cannot divide the half hour up and talk to more than one category.
( 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
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.
