Why do you think intelligence is a commodity? Evolutionary theory posits that survival and reproduction are really the only two true motivations in living beings, and sharks, crocodiles have been doing that pretty successfully for 10s of millions of years despite largely lacking in intelligence. Some plant species have been around even longer despite lacking even consciousness, never mind intelligence. We're the most intelligent species of which we are aware, do you think we'll still be here in 100m years?
