BOOK	...Man had always assumed that he was more intelligent than
	dolphins because he had achieved so much... the wheel, New York,
	wars, and so on, whilst all the dolphins had ever done was muck
	about in the water having a good time. But conversely the
	dolphins believed themselves to be more intelligent than man for
	precisely the same reasons.
