Let us imagine a Cosmos awash with life and sentient beings. What would these aliens look like? Could we communicate with them? But before we can even discuss the question of communicating with extraterrestrial beings we must answer another important question – How Do Aliens Think?
Today’s installment of “Through the Wormhole” hosted by Morgan Freeman explores this question.
By studying the non-humans in our midst, scientists are learning how alien minds might function. Biologists and computer scientists watch "dumb" ants form an intelligent super-organism; neuroscientists probe the mysterious brains of octopuses; and a team of researchers shows that plants can behave in ways we normally only associate with animals.
Meanwhile, a linguist tries to imagine advanced alien language by recreating centuries of human language evolution, a researcher teaches humans to feel an alien sense, and a groundbreaking psychologist finds that super-intelligent aliens may still be ruled by emotions.
This episode of Through the Wormhole is available from Amazon Books.
