This idea has been whirling around in my subconscious mind for a while now. In an odd way, I think we are all spidermonkies....perhaps that just means we're all websurfers?
But wait, there's more to this on a deeper level. People act like bugs, the only difference is in the amount of brainpower that people wield as compared to the amount of brain power that bugs and insects yeild. Technology, the cities and mega-buildings that we design, the cars and traffic laws we obey, the engineered sewers and water distribution networks, the businesses we run and congregate to, the fields we farm and the food we transport, etc, everything we do is part of our nature which is also part of nature in general. Yes, we consider ourselves intelligent, the only real question is in "how intelligent?" and "how much moreso than X- or Y- species?".
Anyhow, I wonder how it is that people ever, therefore, could doubt the existance of extra-terrestial life? How could people ever doubt the existance of perfectly natural "spidermonkies" elsewhere in the cosmos? How could it ever be that highly advanced intelligent life amongst all the other galaxies in the cosmos is somehow improbable or impossible?
But then, there are still people that think SETI is a waste of time. I, on the other hand, believe it is actually only a 'matter of time' instead.
By the way.... check out the fantastic art at Worth 1000 when you have some time to kill.
