The Experiment That Shocked the World - With Woman And Dolphin
Last updated: Jun 5, 2023
The video by Thoughty2 discusses a controversial experiment funded by NASA in the 1960s, involving a woman living in a flat chair with a dolphin named Peter, and the use of drugs and interspecies sex, which ultimately ended up in a porn magazine.
The video discusses a controversial experiment funded by NASA in the 1960s that involved a woman living in a flat chair with a dolphin named Peter.
The experiment aimed to prove that dolphins were intelligent and capable of communicating with humans. However, the project took a bizarre turn when the woman began giving the dolphin sexual stimulation and injecting it with LSD.
The experiment ultimately failed, and the dolphin was returned to the wild.
The video also discusses the origins of the experiment and the scientist behind it, Dr. John Lilly, who believed that dolphins were intelligent creatures with cognitive abilities approaching those of humans.
NASA funded a controversial dolphin project in the 1960s involving interspecies sex, drugs, and a woman living with a dolphin named Peter.
The experiment aimed to teach Peter to speak English by rewarding him with sexual gratification.
The experiment was widely criticized for its unethical treatment of animals and lack of scientific rigor.
John Lilly's groundbreaking idea of directly communicating with dolphins and NASA's funding of his project.
Margaret Howe Lovatt's arrival at the lab and her controversial role in the project.
The impact of Lilly's experiment on the scientific community and public perception of dolphins.
Peter's progress in learning English was limited, and he was simply mimicking sounds with limited understanding.
Drake's experiment tested whether dolphins could communicate complex ideas to one another through language alone.
Peter grew attached to Margaret and started rubbing himself up against her legs, leading to the experiment's publication in a porn magazine.
NASA is a well-known brand that has had some mishaps in the past.
The dolphin project funded by NASA in the 1960s is one of the most absurd experiments in modern science.
The experiment involved interspecies sex, drugs, and a woman living in a flat chair with a dolphin named Peter.
The experiment ultimately ended up in a porn magazine.
Origins of the Experiment
The experiment was the brainchild of Dr. John Lilly, a rising star in the field of psychoanalysis and neuroscience.
Lilly was one of the first scientists to put serious effort into understanding animal intelligence.
He chose the bottlenose dolphin as his test subject because of their large and complex brains.
Dolphins have a brain to body weight ratio similar to that of our human ancestors from around 2 million years ago.
Lilly suspected that dolphins might be intelligent full stop with cognitive abilities approaching our own.
During a pioneering study into dolphin intelligence, Lilly's wife made a startling discovery.
She observed a dolphin mimicking the sounds of their voices, almost as though he wanted to join in the conversation.
Lilly was already convinced that dolphins were extremely intelligent, and this was his strongest proof yet.
Excited about the implications, he switched the focus of his research to studying dolphin intelligence specifically.
Lilly's early work largely concerned cats and dogs, but it soon became clear that if he wanted to find true intelligence in the animal kingdom, he was going to have to study creatures with brains as large and complex as our own.
