Anthro Paradigm Error.
Its been thought there is a connection between brain
size and intelligence, one of the differences between
man and ape.
The discovery of the Hobbit may well point
to the fallacy of this argument.
As well as the brain pan of the toy dog
vs a Great Dane, the volume of the respective
brains is considerable but the difference
in intelligence is minimal.

Anthro Paradigm Error.

Speed of light 186 thousand miles a second.
So what ever light is its frozen in time, at that speed,
according to Einstein time stops.
What is light using for fuel?
Doesn't light violate the laws of conservation of energy?
How far can light go? For how long?
End of thought...
Could dark matter have been around before the Big Bang?
Some branch of astronomy proposes that at the time
the universe is brought into existence it was infinitely dense
and hot. And before that was nothing.
It feels a little like the shrapnel looking back on the detonation
of its bomb as stating it was infinitely dense and hot and before

Such scenes are speculative, but Hawking uses them to lead on to a serious point: that a few life forms could be intelligent and pose a threat. Hawking believes that contact with such a species could be devastating for humanity.
He suggests that aliens might simply raid Earth for its resources and then move on: “We only have to look at ourselves to see how intelligent life might develop into something we wouldn’t want to meet. I imagine they might exist in massive ships, having used up all the resources from their home planet. Such advanced aliens would perhaps become nomads, looking to conquer and colonise whatever planets they can reach.”
He is on good anthropological ground here.
The cases of an advanced civilization coming into contact
with a less advanced civilization has never bode well
for the less advanced civilization, some times its lead

Just saw a Nat. Geo. "Chimps: Next of kin".
A male chimp had a heavy stick he used to jab into a hollow
trunk to kill a bush baby for his lunch. ( a spear? )
And they brought a set of tools to a termite
nest to probe for insects, 2 or 3 diff. size sticks.
Archaeologists found chimp tools used
for breaking nuts.
Pithecines may not be the first tool users.
Why have chimps not progressed to Bipedalism
while man did?
Things are a changing...
