How can we on Earth best prepare for contact?
You have a wonderful and unique opportunity on your planet to recognize that you are living side-by-side with other sentient species.
The dolphins are, in many ways, one of the most similar sentient species to your own.
We may be extraterrestrial because we don’t come from your world, but because we are genetically related to you, we are not really alien.
Conversely, the dolphins are not extraterrestrial because they co-inhabit your world with you.
They truly are alien to you.
Thus by being willing to interact with them and learn to communicate with them, it will actually give you a great opportunity to learn to communicate with other life forms out in the cosmos that truly are alien to you.
In exploring Bashar's suggestion, I developed a strong passion for swimming with wild dolphins and whales, and found that being with them, offers you the opportunity to enter a state of consciousness. That’s actually quite similar to the channeling state.
From that state, you can access more information, and actually see things from a higher perspective.
But do dolphins and whales possess actual languages?
Some researchers are beginning to think so.
I work at the SETI Institute and what I’m going to present is basically an application of information theory to non-human communication.
I’ll present one kind of a way of analyzing, and it's a very simple relationship, that's a linguistic relationship and that's called the Zipf’s Law.
A linguist, in the early 50s, basically decide to plot the frequency of occurrence, of different letters in books.
And he plotted the log of the frequency of occurrence in rank order, in other words, first, second, third, fourth, and so on.
And he said, “The frequency of occurrence of the letter “E” is the most, then I’ll plot the frequency of occurrence of the letter “T” in the book, and then letter “A” and on down.”
And he found a relationship that is basically -1 slope. In other words, a slope of -1 gives you a 45° angle.
And he did this for letters, and he did it for Chinese characters, and he did it for various phonemes, Russian phonemes.
It turns out all human languages produces this -1 slope.
And that so what we did is we compiled a dictionary of bottlenose dolphins, their whistle communication system, and we plotted their frequency of the occurrence, and we got a -1 slope for dolphins as well.
And then what happened was two baby dolphins were born at Marine World, and we recorded them, with my colleague Brenda McCowan.
For humans, when babies are born, they babble, and they produce a kind of the shallow slope.
And it turns out that the baby dolphins were babbling as well.
They landed right on top of human babbling.
And as they grew up, about after about 12 months, they had this -1 slope.
So, in other words, we determine that baby dolphins are born babbling, and then learned as they grow up.
Based on this information, dolphins have a language.
Dolphins, have interacted with your society in many ways.
Dolphins, have guided ships through the seas.
Dolphins, have saved a drowning swimmer.
Dolphins, have even sought humans out when they are injured.
They truly wish to bond with you.
They truly are expressing a desire to interact.
Swimming alongside the dolphins you see, not only this incredible beauty and grace that they exhibit, but you experience a deep sense of freedom, of the limitlessness of their ocean world, and a sense of kinship with them.
It’s like they invite you to become one with them, to become part of their family.
Not only does this help people find a clearer sense of their life purpose, it also gives them the opportunity to learn to communicate with another species. One very different from our own, and this can actually act as a precursor and a preparation for the experience of having extraterrestrial contact.
Humans are stewards of the land.
The Dolphins and the whales are stewards of the sea.
Take advantage of this great opportunity that you have co-created with them to learn to communicate with others species in a variety of ways.
It will aid and assist you in communications with other beings throughout creation.
When we talk about the idea of having open contact with you, we are not just talking about having open contact with humans;
Open contact is with all life, on your planet.
And you will become truly, one society, in a variety of differences that are validated, and supported to form a true harmony, and unity upon your world.
If we can learn to communicate with an intelligence species on Earth that is so different from us, perhaps it will not only help us understand beings from the stars, but to respect the differences among ourselves, as well.
