- When I was
about 12 years old, Mrs. Bruch in Winnebago, Illinois,
gave me a book of stories by the physicist Leo Szilard
called the Voice
of the Dolphin and Other
and Lilly once talked extensively about the dolphins
and interspecies communication. The
of the Dolphin
is Szilard's projection of what might happen when
dolphin/human communication is established.
In the story, the "Vienna Institute" scientists crack
the communication problem when they find the dolphins
love Zel's Liver Paste. In a short order,
major scientific papers are published by the humans
and the dolphins together that win Nobel prizes; and
the world changes. Nuclear tensions and
geopolitical situations improve; hunger and population
increases are solved by
a nutritious food which also lowers birth rates, and
Later, Paradise Newland showed me the design for
the Sirius Institute and said she modelled it on the
Szilard story. When I re-read the story, I was
surprised I remembered so much of it, and found that
the Vienna Institute was my subconscious model for the
Sirius Institute as well. It is in this
spirit that we present our early newsletters.
- The most
recent issue concerns current Navy & Nato testing
of a high power sonar call LFAS
(Low Frequency Active
Navy testing of the LFAS in the Bahamas may have
caused 14 whales to strand, and reportedly, 8 died.
So, sadly, my predictions, as presented in the newest
"Voice of the Dolphin" are being confirmed.
- I pray that
these essays effect policies of our governments in a
way similar to those published by the fictional Vienna
Institute, and that the whales and dolphins will be
better treated in our future.
- Thank you,
Leo Szilard, for your inspiration.
So welcome to the
VOICE OF THE DOLPHIN.
