- BIO -
Born July 5, 1948 in Rockford, Illinois. Michael spent his early
life in Winnebago, Illinois on a small farm. He was greatly inspired
by his father, Eugene [a microbiologist who helped develop yellow
His early interests were art, astronomy, space travel and science,
especially biology. Pursuits like falconry, keeping pets, rock climbing,
and spelunking led to keeping pet bats. Because bats and dolphins
both use sonar, he soon found the books of John Lilly.
At age 15, he went to Port Aransas, Texas and trained dolphins with
his brother Robert. Fascinated with these creatures, he set out to
be a marine biologist. In 1964 he studied sharks at Cape Haze Marine
Lab, Sarasota, Florida with Eugenie Clark and the next summer, went
to Alaska to study arctic biology.
In 1966 Hyson entered the University of Miami, Coral Gables, Florida
to study biology and medicine. Intent on being a field ethologist,
Hyson studied rodent behaviour with population biologist David van
Vleck, ethology with Art Myrburg [a Konrad Lorenz student], took honors
history with John Knoblock, and continued medical studies by working
as a medical and x-ray technician.
In 1970, he met Thorne Shipley and became fascinated with the study
of the brain and visual perception. He learned that computers could
draw pictures and created the first random-dot stereograms outside
of Bell Labs for Shipley's course. Based on this work, Shipley invited
him to enter graduate school in neurophysiology where he also worked
with William Evoy, a specialist in crayfish locomotion.
After a thesis on stereoscopic vision earned him a masters degree,
he went on to work with Howard Teas, a tropical botanist and remote
sensing expert. He created a computer neural net model of the visual
system intended to automatically map plant species with the [then]
new remote sensing satellites for his Ph. D. While this goal proved
ambitious, the model showed the importance of non-linear processes
in the brain and the usefulness of neural nets for pattern recognition
and robotics. His continued work with Shipley, at the Mailman Center
for Child Development included EEG and evoked response experiments
indicating dyslexia and other problems in children involve errant
processing of signals arriving simultaneously from different senses.
While completing his master's thesis, he met Henry Truby, a linguist
and acoustic phonetician once part of John Lilly's Communication Research
Institute, where attempts were made to teach dolphins to speak English.
Truby and Ric O'Feldman [a trainer for the Flipper TV series] formed
the World Dolphin Foundation and kept the dolphins Florida and Liberty
in the Mashta Island Lagoon, some 1000 yards from Nixon's Key Biscayne
Whitehouse. Hyson joined the group and swam many hours with the dolphins
while developing dolphin communication interfaces and other projects.
After completing his Ph.D. in 1976, and the release of Florida and
Liberty in the Bahamas, he left Florida to join California Institute
of Technology's BioInformation Systems Lab to research non-linear
aspects of brain function with Derek Fender.
At the urging of Bela Julesz, [originator of the random dot stereogram
and, later, the first recipient of the MacArthur Prize] he made precise
records of eye motions during stereoscopic vision and showed the brain
was able to fuse stereo images which were up to 8 degrees apart on
the retinas, proving the brain uses dynamic "software" more
than heretofore appreciated.
About this time, he became concerned about nuclear reactor safety
and designed walking waldos with Dr. James Grote for use in nuclear
reactors. With Cal Tech and Combustion engineering, he jointly proposed
to build robot/waldo walkers [based on how crayfish walk] to the NSF,
DOE, and EPRI.
Looking to the future, he began to dream of living in space and applying
his knowledge of biology and robotics to this goal. After organizing
a Cal Tech Space Settlement Conference in 1978 which was attended
by major players in the space colony movement, he joined a NASA Summer
Study exploring self-reproducing factories on the moon in 1980.
That same summer he joined Gary Hudson's GCH Astronautics [developers
of the first private rocket in the U.S]. While there he developed
telepresence and waldo concepts for space operations and helped develop
a robot arm.
In the fall of 1980, he joined Cal Tech's Jet Propulsion Lab in the
Physics and Containerless Processing section. He helped develop electrostatic
levitators for containerless processing in orbit. The devices were
tested on the NASA KC-135 and he experienced some 10 hours of zero-gravity.
He initiated a project that created uniform plastic microspheres
[the most uniform spheres ever created in the 150-300 micron size
range] and explored their application to AIDS and bone marrow transplants.
He also researched free-flying teleoperators and neuromagnetometry
- a way to detect the magnetic fields of the brain, consulted with
Yamaha on motorcycle safety and robotics, and helped develop some
of the first orange "blue blocking" sunglasses with Suntiger
Biomedical Optics, as well as other projects.
He continued to push for space settlement and low-cost private launchers
as a member of the L-5 Society's Citizen's Advisory Council on Space
Policy. Council reports to President Reagan resulted in the SDI programs.
He helped found the Lunar Society, a group pursuing a private Lunar
In 1987, after the Challenger disaster, he left NASA to help make
reliable private orbital rockets.
In 1988, he joined Gary Hudson's Pacific American Launch Systems
as Research Director helping design and build the Liberty 1-A engine
for testing at Edward's AFB. His logistics model showed a lunar settlement
could be built for under a billion dollars (or less) using Hudson's
Single Stage to Orbit (SSTO) Phoenix rocket. The project ended before
the Liberty engine was fired.
Following this, he helped write briefings for the Citizen's Advisory
Council that eventually started major SSTO rocket developments. The
MacDonald-Douglas' DC-X Delta Clipper rocket that resulted was recently
featured on the cover of Popular Science magazine. The DC-X is substantially
the same as Gary Hudson's designs for a mini-Phoenix. On June 7, 1996,
he attended a test launch of the DC-X from White Sands, NM.
With plans for orbit on hold, he decided to pursue his first love,
the dolphins. This was facilitated when he met Paradise Newland, (mother,
dolphin researcher, producer, writer etc) and her son Tiger Stanley
in January, 1990. Inspired by Tiger, initiated by Star, the Sirius
Institute became a reality when he became its research director and
the Institute was relocated to Hawai'i to pursue its various projects
with free dolphins.
In April, whilst attending the K.W.I.C. conference in the Keys, he
had the opportunity to reconnect with one of his swimming partners,
Dreamer, at Dolphin's Plus in Florida. She healed an old neck injury
with her sonar. This event so impressed him he determined to solve
the dolphin communication problem, create human/dolphin habitats where
dolphin sound healing and dolphin attended underwater births can be
experienced, and integrate dolphins into human societies. He created
the Song Swimmer musical computer interface that allows dolphins to
play musical instruments and control computers using their sounds.
The Song Swimmer interface was demonstrated at the 3rd International
Dolphin and Whale Conference in Kona, Hawaii in 1991. John Lilly commented
that the work was "excellent and exciting".
A tape "Dolphin Valentine" has been produced. These results
open the way for full, objective communications with the dolphins
as well as artistic endeavors such as interspecies concerts and other
performances where the dolphins compose and perform their own music
in conjunction with human musicians.
A next step for him is to put dolphins on the virtual reality nets
so that anyone, anywhere, can have their own real-time dolphin experiences
and to validate dolphin assisted healing.
Recently, our emphasis has been on establishing a dolphin attended
underwater and natural birth camp here in Hawai’i. A summary
of these concepts is located at: www.planetpuna.com/VOD19
