>>106060269>The truth hurts and humans like to pretend we exist outside of the natural order for whatever dumb reason.
But what exactly is truthful
That we are as dumb as monkeys?
That we are as relatively smart as monkeys compared to other aliens?
That we aren't animals?
Like honestly, if some alien called me a monkey, I probably wouldn't bat an eye because they aren't technically wrong
Obviously I would be more surprised that aliens existed
But even in the far off future where humans coexist with several other races, now everybody knows what a monkey is?
For what reason?
Just for an overplayed human joke? do people even care about humans that much?>Ok so transcending the void between stars is a simple task for aliens, but zoology and anthropology is somehow above their understanding?
Well for one it's alien zoology, so they would not only require that information but cultural context
They absolutely could if they were some all knowing god race, but like, why the fuck would they give a shit?
Why would they specifically attempt (obviously succeed) translating just to get to the point where they can come up with an accurate joke that we can understand and feel hurt by?
What's the point?
Do they feed off of pettiness?
It just doesn't make sense
