How do you think you would react to an encounter with another intelligent primate?
Lets assume that this “other primate” is very similar to a homo sapien in regard to verbal and physical language and mannerisms. There would be no communication barriers. You could ask and it might answer, you could even share a pot of coffee together. It’s physical proportions are also more man than ape yet there is no doubt that it is something other than human.
This would be your first time seeing something like this and avoiding it would not be an option.
What I’m trying to gauge isn’t what you would ask it or anything like that but how you would feel about the whole thing. It would certainly be an alien encounter but not from some other planet. Not something unknown or unheard of before. This is an animal you are already aware of, just never seen in these “conditions.”
So… curious? Disgusted? Allured? Would you think yourself better than the other animal? Does it frighten you? Etc. etc.
