WIth no form of communication the only thing I could only imagine that would happen would be to go up to the rock attempt to eat it and then if it's edible then consume it and if not then don't consume it. because theres no words for something and no way to describe it then everytime you pass the rock you would attempt to do the same thing.

Any creature regardless of how stupid if it has a brain or whatever it has would have the ability to distinguish the two different classifications of objects(edible or not edible).

Venus fly traps even though they are plants are living creatures and are able to determine if their prey is food or not. Whatever causes the trap to know that the different hairs are being triggered is somewhere in the plant.

Whatever the situation is you would figure that we wouldn't have sentient thought since we have no way to communicate which would most likely mean that we can't move since the act of eating something would be considered an act of communication.

If there were no language, but another type of communication device, life would be okay? i mean language is one of the worst ways to communicate since we invented sarcasm and society is the one that puts meaning into words, not us.

but if there were no other way to communicate, then we would die. If communication were not necessary, then we would have already eliminated it due to natural selection,
