I happened to view 'The Cove' the other day and warning, this is not a Saturday night light entertainment. It is about Taiji dolphin hunters. The hunting part is a misnomer in all respects.
Why not use trained Dolphins to create memes that will help the survival of the wild Dolphins. I was thinking
training grounds in migratory paths that the interested wild Dolphins can come and investigate and pick up some new skills. Maybe, a bit of tasty fish for incentive.
These skills could include desensitization to sound herding poles and methods to escape nets. Dolphins have the power to leap a net just not the technique. I'm sure Cetacean researchers could come up with a simple net crossing technique that the dolphins can use in a life or death situation. Maybe plank vertically in the air and fall across net?
Come on wild dolphins, plank for life.
Is my proposal in the running?
An idea for increasing innovations with respect to Dolphins. [wjt, Jan 20 2018]
||Robotic dolphin that wants to be caught, with a bit of
C4 in the middle...
||[Rayford] I don't like the instantaneous negative of that reply.
||I was thinking this might be about super pleasant super
enjoyable to the dolphins Memes (Dawkins variety) that
autopropagate among dolphins. One possibility is playing
dolphins say 700 different 60-90s song intos, and
choruses, and seeing which ones they sing to themselves
or sing back. That could be a starting point on
encouraging dolphins to sing. Then, you could use a
genetic algorithm to generate new intro sounds and
choruses, and see if any were super appealing to the
||Scientists could measure, and be pleased at, not only
voluntary dolphin singing of music, but finding out when
they made up variations, that is, dolphins composed
||It might at first seem like dolphins might have their own
pre-existing form of music, it is just that various Western
forms of music (classical; Pachelbels Canon for Dolphins),
and 60-90s top 10 music reached across many cultures to
become popular. So, dolphins might like it.
||Also, I seem to remember reading that dolphin
communication can represent 3D shapes; that is, like a
volumetric finite element analysis (FEA) model; dolphins
might make 3D classical music if introduced to it.
||After identifying dolphin songs, and song intro variations,
versions could be made of dolphin songs for humans to
||As to the creation of 3D FEA dolphin memes, computers
could assist with that, like genetic algorithm variations on
seeing an enjoyable plurality of fish or sexual play; as
well as come-hither vocalizations of dolphins prior to sex,
and sex play. the genetic algorithm, and software might
repeat motifs spatially (more fish; more sex; more good
mood) sort of tesselating things dolphins like.
||Also, they could feed dolphins MDMA, spatially record
their vocalizations, and use those happy vocalizations as a
genetic algorithm basis to develop Happy dolphin
phraseology for use in producing autopropagating memes
and what might become dolphin song lyrics.
