Humans are proud of a lot of things, from particle accelerators, to poetry to pokemon. All of them made possible because of something humans value extremely highly: intelligence.

It’s not a scientist job to declare where it begins. But that of a Philosopher. Check out Objectivism for answers.
lamalamalex Пре дан
[Man] survives by means of man-made products, and . . . the source of man-made products is man’s intelligence. Intelligence is the ability to grasp the facts of reality and to deal with them long-range (i.e., conceptually). On the axiom of the primacy of existence, intelligence is man’s most precious attribute. But it has no place in a society ruled by the primacy of consciousness: it is such a society’s deadliest enemy. Today, intelligence is neither recognized nor rewarded, but is being systematically extinguished in a growing flood of brazenly flaunted irrationality. “THE METAPHYSICAL AND THE MAN-MADE” Return of the Primitive: The Anti-Industrial Revolution, 32
lamalamalex Пре дан
Intelligence is not an exclusive monopoly of genius; it is an attribute of all men, and the differences are only a matter of degree. If conditions of existence are destructive to genius, they are destructive to every man, each in proportion to his intelligence. If genius is penalized, so is the faculty of intelligence in every other man. There is only this difference: the average man does not possess the genius’s power of self-confident resistance, and will break much faster; he will give up his mind, in hopeless bewilderment, under the first touch of pressure. “REQUIEM FOR MAN” Capitalism: The Unknown Ideal, 306
lamalamalex Пре дан
Intelligence is the ability to deal with a broad range of abstractions. Whatever a child’s natural endowment, the use of intelligence is an acquired skill. It has to be acquired by a child’s own effort and automatized by his own mind, but adults can help or hinder him in this crucial process. “THE COMPRACHICOS” Return of the Primitive: The Anti-Industrial Revolution, 58

Some humans value intelligence, not all do. It's hard to say that intelligence is problem solving when every "solution" is a new problem. Solve world hunger and all that comes of it is over population. The desire to grow indefinitely is not intelligence, if it was then viruses are intelligent

Similarity between a slime mold and a neutron / quark star. We normally know atoms and cells as tiny microscopic entities invisible to eyes. But the slime mold is a giant cell the size of an animal that can be seen with the eye, while the neutron star is a giant atom the size of a city.

So people are unique with their intellect but they are not more unique than other animals. I have heard that animals are better in certain areas of the intellect than us but we are also better than them in other areas of the intellect. For example, we strive to learn more and more while most species of animals learn but do not strive for more knowledge than they need to survive, but is it possible that the reason for this is actually the knowledge they have ... Is it possible if we teach some animals certain things to trigger their desire for more knowledge? Or it's just an instinct that we have and they don't. I have heard that dolphins are probably the most intelligent animals after humans, with only small differences in our and their intelligence. I have also heard that there are animals that learn faster than humans and think faster but have a limited capacity for knowledge.

What would you guess are the additional tools in humans' unusually diverse intelligence toolkit represented by the new symbols at 7:55? I'm guessing the first three are probably spoken language, writing and music and the last one mathematics, but I don't know what the geometric shapes or intertwined circles might represent. Any ideas?
