When it comes right down to it, intelligence isn't measured by
how we live but how we use it to propagate the species. Maybe a
sensibly non-polluted world with ample food for all is an
admirable by-product of our use of our intelligence but I'm
wondering if we aren't fooling ourselves by thinking that a race
much further up the intelligence scale [meaning accumulated
knowledge from being around longer] would be any less messy or
better fed than we are. I'm assuming that they are, mind you,
since we are getting better at it, but we are fighting the
numbers game. It takes money, education but most of all, it
takes time.
