Lost in Translation

Post by Dontaskme »

Does the 'Big Self'' of dolphins have to know how to swim.

If you want to tell dolphins about God you will have to convert Him into whistles and squeaks.

So Dolphins don't make very good teachers and we get to keep our classrooms dry.

A Dolphin or a Human is an Artifactual Object of Tacit knowledge the kind of knowledge that is difficult to transfer to another person by means of writing it down or verbalising it.

Artifacts are known as images and thoughts,to the only knowing there is which is consciousness alone all one, aka no one. There is no separate conscious entity behind the image or a thought owning that image and thought. Images and thoughts are representational artifacts that are self-arising within their own emptiness. Emptiness has no image of itself except as it's own mentally constructed thought as imaged.

No spiritual master has ever taught anybody a single thing. Gandhi, Buddha, Jesus, Lao Tzu, nobody. They have simply redirected us to a place within us where all knowledge, power, and peace already exists.

Not only can they learn English, but studies have shown that 98 per cent of dolphins are atheist.

Life's too short to learn German.

Nature has it's own language, it knows no language. It is silent.

That's because they haven't mastered the art of nailing each other to the cross. Or hating each other, more basically.

- no dolphin commits a crime against property or possession.

- no dolphin drinks alcohol, swears, or goes out with wanton women.

- no dolphin plays cards, dances the Argentine Tango, or covets thy neighbour's ass.

- two dolphins are better than one.

- the doll of a child dolphin has doll fins.

Excuses, excuses. I'm only 5'4", but leaned some German. Life could do better, although not against somebody who is bigger than life.

Dolphins could learn fifty words of English and use them properly in conversation. But they had been pitifully unable to learn Hungarian.

One dolphin can learn 50 English words. Two dolphins can learn 100 English words (2 times 50). 1,000,000 dolphins can learn the entire word stock of the English language.

it's interesting, how were scientists able to determine that? dolphins told it? even if they can learn 50 english words, i doubt they can use them in speech :mrgreen: And i doubt if scientists can understand dolphinese. ))
