The Human Race is fairly intelligent, some of the time anyway, but certainly not so much that all other forms of life are beyond compare. We do have
amazing potential and display very impressive skills and talents when we choose to explore them. However, a lot of the time Humans basically go about
acting and living in ways very similar to some kind of "Super-Monkey" unfortunatly.
I don't find War & Genocide to be very Intelligent.
I don't find Species Extinction from acts of Greed or Arrogance Intelligent.
I don't find Creation of Toxic/Nuclear/Genetic Waste and Viruses Intelligent.
I don't find Gluttonous, Selfish Destruction of our Planet and Home Intelligent.
I don't find the continued Abuse or Manipulation of Less Capable Creatures Intelligent.
....and so on and so forth.....I could go on for a while but I don't want to concentrate on the negative stuff too much, ya know.........Besides, I
think the Human Race is about to make some serious changes for the better soon and hopefully clear up our shakey track record.
Here's some proof about the Dolphin's being some real smart and capable suckers!!! There are others too, but Dolphin's I find truely amazing and
way under appreciated.....
A physicist would marvel at some of the play behavior observed in young dolphins at the Project Delphis laboratory. They blow underwater bubble
rings by injecting air into water vortices, about the thickness of a straw and 1 to 2 feet in diameter. The rings don't rise to the surface! The
babies play with these underwater toys by moving them around with their rostrum, or biting them. They even bounce the rings off the wall, and elongate
them with a flick of their dorsal fins into 15 foot corkscrews.
How Do Dolphins Communicate With Each Other?
Communication between a mother dolphin and her two-year old baby was explored using a two-way acoustic and one-way video link set up between two
tanks. The baby dolphin was able to talk to its mother on the phone, as well as see her on the TV monitor. The result was an intense exchange of
conversation between the two with the baby vocalizing and its mother responding. We are still analyzing recordings of this experiment. While dolphins
do not seem to have a linear language like humans do, it seems like some high-level communication is taking place.
Well, that should get ya started. You may also want to look up info about the similar structure of the Human and Dolphin Brain as well. Cool stuff
