: Did Cro-Magnon and the Neandertal have the desire to speak? Koko, the gorilla can sign. Truth seems to play a very small part in regard to our desire to speak. Maybe it is only a need to communicate our own personal ideas about reality that we write dialogue on this web site.
Koko can sign. Dogs can bark. Cats can hiss. Parrots can, well, parrot. That doesn't mean they can think.
