I have no hatred at all, I simply wanted to demonstrate the hypocrisy of the thread.


You know what, Dolphins now probably are dying of laughing

I almost can't stand it it's so cool

It's not just what they see with sound - it's what they say with sound

Am I understanding this right? They can speak in pictures?

It is all in the history, you should read it sometime.

Excellent find and post S&F.

Not to take this in an odd direction, but I think the more we discover how other life communicates and uncover the fundamentals of communication the better equipped we are to discover intelligent signals from other worlds.

My God.

This is finally something that gives me hope. To hear what the dolphins have to say.

Obviously, learning how the communication actually works will take time and effort. But it appears that they are communicating in images, which it seems would be somewhat "doable" from a research perspective.

This is so cool and amazing. I think all us super monkey's need to step aside and let the dolphins run this planet for a while actually. We just don't seem to get it at all. We've lost touch with everything.

The next superior creature to take over after us, if anything is left to take over that is, is going to be either dolphins or octopi most likely anyway.

What dolphin's have to say... depends on the dolphins in question... I imagine some would say something along the lines of, "Yo dude, pass the puffer man." meanwhile another, "Wow man I'm sooooo high right now." and another, "Dudes did you see the tail on that porpoise I'm so getting me a piece of that, who's with me?"

Course that's all mostly the males


Girl dolphin: "Don't mind them, they're all hormone driven jerks and assholes. How may I help you?"

I hope this is all being understood correctly?
What I'm wondering is - could this be a case of humans inventing tech that is using dolphin sonar to describe the surroundings, but in reality, it may have nothing to do with what the dolphin makes of it all?

I had totally forgotten about the puffer fish. So funny, they're not that different to us after all.

I bet dolphins think we humans are pretty dumb and when they project an image of a human it looks like homer Simpson

Ah that's great---I always figured that dolphins might likely be using this form of communication. They have an enormous acoustic echolocation cortex completely missing in primates.

Thus it may be likely that dolphins can communicate by "dolphin fax" sending 'images' which could be interpreted by recipients echolocation system.

Their language would not be sequential, grammatical like humans---optimized for continuous speech---but intermittent and symbolic. It could be that they are naturally 'literate' but don't speak with words----but what we might call to be 'symbols'. Clearly some would be related to the natural world observations --- the dolphin icon for 'fish' probably looks like what a real fish looks like to echolocation. But with time some could evolve to be fully abstract.

That is impressive. Dolphin-net.
Maybe we can get better at intercepting their pictures and put them on the internet so we can get as smart as a dolphin.

Yes, just like us.

What is seriously fascinating is how they create the pictures. Dolphin echolocation.

Well said, though I wonder how many here will realize that a language comprising transmitted pictograms (as you suggest) would be significantly less expressive and versatile than a language made up of phonemes, or the visual equivalent.

I suppose it's possible that dolphins do have a language like that, in which case they would be as 'clever' as us. However — speaking as someone with a longstanding interest in cetaceans who is also a dedicated whale-watcher — I should be very surprised if this were the case.

There are two reasons. The first is that, observing dolphin behaviour in the wild has taught me that although these guys are very intelligent, they're intelligent animals. They don't come across as people with flippers: not at all.

The second is that my favoured explanation for the emergence of human language is that it evolved by sexual selection. Male dolphins don't court females as men do women; they assault them sexually. Admittedly this is an area where very little is yet known, but it would seem as if female-driven sexual selection has very little to do with dolphin evolution.

I dunno the ability to speak and tendency to get stoned seems to me like a recipe for bizarre abstract thought and communications. Not necessarily super intelligent thought, but more than "fish at 2 o'clock."

Very cool finding


It will be interesting to observe if they are as amazing as Humans and if they too use this method of visual communication to find p0rn 85 % of the time. LOL

I'm not a betting man but I give it 50 years top before they have people searching for Dolphin p0rn.

Seriously, this is awesome and look forward to finding additional details.
