    what would you be primarily testing for?

    On my part, i suppose i'd be examining either for appearance of rare behavior (eg people who go insane and do a routine, including rare actions such as focusing on obscure things), or have some mental pattern complexity assessment to make (eg thoughts or progressions considerably above x complexity, with x being a standard or typical for the species).

    It doesn't matter if you have tentacles, pseudopods or tens of eyes, but better keep the thread relatively clean from the mundane sexual 'Grays' probing

    I'd probably examine individual behavior in an attempt to finally be able to define human behavior and motivation.

    To anyone concerned. I am leaving twc. Bye and best of luck.
    And Pike, thanks for supporting me always.

    Sadly, I felt that despite making contributions, I did not get recognition of Citizenship. Hence I left. You might call me crybaby, but I was shocked to see that most people whom I had considered to be well wishers, voted against me. Yes, I needed that Citizenship.
    Nowadays, I don't know if it was the site or if I have improved, but I do find it easier to do better on other sites.
    I also help run a very successful wild west server on Discord.

    The pattern of intelligent life always trying to find a way to kill one another.

    How people develop culture, technology, society, warfare, etc....

    In other words, watching people murder each other in the name of the one true faith.

    And than wiping it clean, and watching people murder each other in the name of the one true culture.

    And than wiping it clean once again, and watching people murder each other in the name of the one true bucket.

    And than thinking on how they came up with the strange ideas they do.

    "If this were an experiment"

    Is this like 'if water was wet?'

    If this is science, then I am ready to a redo to replicate the results.

    Whatever I was trying, I'd probably run into annoying hardcoded limits.
