been reading the thread, had to lol at the bot. It reminds of "Accelerando" by Charles Stross. The basic gist of the story is that humans are merely a transitional species in between animals and sentient corporate instruments.

As far as who who take over the earth if we killed ourselves off, I would put all my money on the baboons.

btw I read this science article a long time ago (in a magazine) and I've been looking for it ever since. I think it was in New Scientist. It collected data about brain size related to body size, which is used as a fairly good predictor of intelligence, and it showed that amongst all biological genuses there were species who developed larger and larger brains over time (relative to body size). The point was that if you accept the correlation between encephalization quotient and intelligence then it indicates that intelligence keeps increasing over time, which means that sentience and thus civilization is inevitable.

wish I could find the article
