Charles: Humans talking with and turning into animals is a frequent theme in both
American and African ancient tales ( See for example, _Civilization or Barbarism: An
Authentic Anthropology_ by Cheikh Anta Diop).  I wonder if this is some form of
biological science too advanced for the current scientists to understand.

This would throw something of a wrench into my idea of language as one of the
distinctive human characteristics. Andy says chimps could use e-mail.
