Yesterday, we were able to see video from BBC of dolphins identifying objects that they could not see with their echolocation, See them categorize multiple objects, and see synchronicity in behavior and movement. We also saw the dolphins’ creativity.
As we move deeper into understanding the very basics of dolphin intelligence, we begin to see more and more similarities among these creatures and ourselves!
When I watched this video it was the first time that I learned that humans and dolphins are among the only creatures that play into adulthood. The video demonstrates dolphins and humans surfing waves! This was really cool to bring into my consciousness. I think a lot about how much we gain during play and how dolphins do this everyday.
When we have the opportunity to play and enjoy the moments in our lives, how much happier and true to ourselves are we?
