Among the members of the superfamily, Hominoidea, Chimpanzees are our closest relatives. Their brains are approximately 1/3 the size of humans but the work of Jane Godell documented that they make and use tools not only to acquire food but for social displays . They lived in large social groups with a definitive social hierarchy with the Alpha male's dominance based more upon his influential skills as opposed to his brute physical strength. They have a complex communication system that utilizes vocalizations, body language, hand gestures and facial expressions. They can learn some sign language skills and can be taught how to count to 9 and understand their values. They can laugh, play, wrestle and tickle. Looking into their eyes one can feel a connection as they gaze back, perhaps with a sense of bewilderment so well expressed in a poem by Denis Martindale:
"He held a twig, poked it around,
Then tossed it at his friend,
It bounced off him and hit the ground
Before he could defend...
He picked it up and tossed it back
And so their game went on,
Then suddenly, they both lost track,
The novelty had gone...
If only Man could follow suit
And walk away from war
And not let battles still pollute
This world from shore-to-shore...
If chimpanzees can call a truce,
Can nations, yes or no?
With each new war, each side must lose,
Till nations make wars GO! "
