Can communicate with other species even if we share no concepts with them?
How can we even start communication when we have such a biased view of what intelligence is? We don’t recognize it in any species on our planet other than human.
This talk will cover the efforts being made to communicate with other intelligences on our Earth. It will focus on communicating with creatures that don’t use verbal speech but instead use light patterns that they swiftly change on their body.
