Speculation about the potential differences between augmented humans and
non-human animals is moot. Uplifted intelligences, whether they are
descended from humans, animals, or rocks, will, in a Lamarckian process,
rapidly accelerate towards a common fitness peak. Post-biological
intelligences may retain vestiges of their pre-post-biological brain
(much like we still retain the reptilian part of our brain), but that
will ultimately be of no real consequence as all advanced intelligences
will gravitate towards roughly the same mode of cognitive being.
