"The Tower of Babel may have been something frightening to behold to become the object of 'divine anger.' By the time of the advent of the Babel fish intelligent beings had grown accustomed to understanding each other at a basic level, and that was never capable of being removed from human reality again. The only living entity to suffer horrific side effects from human understanding went through incarnations of many beings, including a whale and a potted flower plant. Compassionate beings may have been more concerned about that entity's suffering had they ever stopped to listen to whales or flowers." - ongoing analysis of Do Not Panic.
