By intelligent snakes, I mean that this is a cold-blooded species without limbs beyond a flexible prehensile tail. I've debated designing their tail to split into multiple ends, but that's up in the air. Would this sort of physiology allow the rise of civilization? If so, what sort of culture and technology do you think could arise from such a species?
But that’s not all there is. There is the gradually snowballing momentum of everything that is not available as fodder for communication, all the unsocialized and incommunicable private dark matter of accumulating lived experience. If this is sufficiently high, the two will drift apart, cognitively speaking, even if their communication is a net yes, I hear you (and you hear me). And as they drift apart, communication will become harder, and slowly flip to a net no, I can’t hear you. In the picture, these are the snapping and missing links on the right, in the diverged later stage of the network of yeses on the left.
