From my postings on Artificial Intelligence to real intelligence. My subject title is not as catchy, but is a more accurate title, than the article which is: "Humans aren’t the only great apes that can ‘read minds’"

I am not surprised that apes have this ability. I wouldn't be surprised if some slightly less intelligent animals have this ability too, its just hard to find out.
