You know, in your short post it confirmed at least some things for me. When I was a kid, I would make regular trips to Sea World Ohio just to see the
dolphins. Every time I got to the pool I got not only sick to my stomach, but was overwhelmed with an intense feeling of sadness. They would come
up, grab the herring that the trainer provides you, and they would let you pet them for a second or two. When I touched and made contact with my
first dolphin, I could just feel the sentience in the dolphin's eyes. I had been reading somewhere that there was a small activist group trying to
bring scientific knowledge to the table to prove that dolphins are not only sentient, but that they deserve to be protected as a sentient species.
Now if we could only learn their song and how to translate our speech into something dolphins could understand, I think we will have made our
proverbial "First Contact."
It's a very interesting proposition indeed.
Peace be with you.
