Divers can talk to dolphins, perhaps aliens, with new device
It's the ability of this device to communicate with the other sentient beings on our own planet that is of most immediate interest. Ever since psychoanalyst John C. Lilly popularized the idea that dolphins could talk in the 1960s, animal lovers and researchers have long dreamt of one day decoding dolphin communication. Not only do some species of dolphin and porpoise have a larger brain-to-body-mass ratio than humans, but they are master communicators. They understand syntax, and even the difference between a statement and a question.
