Anyone recall the Big Bloop? Was that anywhere near where these Dolphins were? Is there anyway to check whatever system recorded/detected the Bloop
and see if anything similar was detected around/before this mega ultra pod was observed?
I too have always been fascinated by Dolphins and their intelligence and ability to communicat and understand our attempts at communication, and
especially the reports from time to time where Dolphins have saved people at sea, from sharks, drowning, etc. amazing and beautiful creatures and I
agree with one of earlier posts that Dolphins are the most intelligent species on Earth.
To add more of Douglas Adams' wonderfully wacky Hitchhikers Guide wisdom, I always loved the contrast comparing human and Dolphin intelligence -
paraphrasing badly but something like "humans thought humans were the most intelligent species for they had invented nuclear war, digital watches and
so forth while all Dolphins did was swim around and play in the water.
Dolphins, on the other hand (fin?) thought they were the most intelligent creatures for precisely the same reasons.
That's very powerful passage, and one that has gone over most people's heads that I've read it to over the years. But truly makes sense and
highlights a staggering human flaw - inventing weapons that kill, damage, or micromanage our lives certainly can be construed as an intelligent
species accomplishments - but an even more intelligent species would understand that leaving such devices in the theoretical realm instead of actually
building them is a far more intelligent and sensible approach! We live in a paradise, but instead of playing and enjoying it, we have completely
ruined the lives of ourselves and our children, and other species as well, and focus far too much on developing devices that kill, harm and maim
rather than focusing on good things, and not only make it nearly impossible for people to enjoy this world by playing and enjoying it, and gotten so
out of touch tat we actually view anyone who would take this approach as mentally unbalanced and someone to avoid.
I hope these Dolphins are well and happy and made it away from whatever they may have been fleeing. And wish I could be with them, assuming I could
grow Mariner- like gills and such.
