CULTURE AND LANGUAGE: human constructs?

Check out this groovy 'TEDtalk' with primatologist Susan Savage-Rumbaugh (who I might add as a point of interest to all you Quad Citians conducts her research at the Great Ape Trust in Des Moines, Iowa...) concerning her work with bonobos. In short, Susan discusses the intelligence and arguably human-like nature of these peaceful primates. This of course brings up countless points of discussion relavent to the so-called 'human experience', but I will spare you my (probably) psychostimulant induced excitement and its accompanying rant. Cock stars and horny teen relics beware...bonobos fuck much more than you do and they do not fuck 'doggy style'.

AND if animal language and communication piques your interest in any way I encourage you to do some research on dolphin-speak wildman, genius John C. Lilly, especially if you have any interest in psychedelic drugs, sensory deprivation tanks, or consciousness in general...

*I don't want to post a lot of 'TEDtalk' videos, please check out their website...they have numerous videos that I have seen that are certainly worthy of at least a viewing...
