Talk about learned and shared behavior
(a.k.a., culture): The dolphins in this video are making an amazing cultural display right before our eyes, giving us a whole new perspective on the phrase, a school of dolphins! What intelligent, imaginative, creative, playful, graceful and social creatures they are. There is STILL SO MUCH that animals, and the natural world, can TEACH US.
The ability for we humans to speak with words doesn’t necessarily make us better, nor does it make us more evolved than other creatures. The fact that we CAN self-reflect does give us a definite edge towards spiritual advancement, but only when we use that skill to our ADVANTAGE. Having humility, compassion and reverence towards other sentient beings, can only help us to that end. (And if we could only learn to blow bubbles like that, and not just blow smoke :)).
