Juan R Posadas, Trotskyism and Talking to Dolphins.

That’s Not the Correct Line Comrade on the Left Unity Row.

Oh Yes it is!


The Girl who Talked to Dolphins was on BBC 4 last night.

This was a

Documentary telling the story of the most extraordinary experiment in the history of animal science. In the 1960s a powerful and charismatic scientist flooded a house. He then invited a young woman to live there full-time with a dolphin. Their intention was the ultimate in animal research – they wanted to teach the dolphin to speak English. What happened next would change all their lives. For the first time those involved in the experiment reveal the secrets of the Dolphin House.

This was great.

Trotskyism was also at the forefront of this great leap forward in interspecies communication.

Juan R Posadas, the Argentinian Trotskyist  is best known for his pioneering theories on UFOs and the probable existence of higher, communist, civilisations on other planets. He rightly observed that, “These beings from other planets come to observe life down here and laugh at humans, we who fight each other over who has the most cannons, cars and wealth.”

But he did not stop there.

Wikipedia notes,

Posadas led his movement into the development of various ideas that bordered on the New Age with writings about communicating with dolphins and humans giving birth under water.

Fortean Times explains,

Professor Igor Charkovsky’s experiments for the Soviet Academy of Sciences on ‘water birthing’ and his work on communicating with dolphins won the admiration of Posadas, as did unattributed “plans to conceive babies in space.” Charkovsky is today a celebrity of the New Age Californian bourgeois ‘water birthing’ circuit and his forays into human–dolphin communication interfaces are continued by Alexander Yushchencko at Kharkov Polytechnic, Ukraine.

In any event, Posadas’ disciples defended his most esoteric dolphin and water birthing ideas after his death, stating that: “Posadas highlighted the full significance of experiments the Soviets are making in communicating with animals (eg. dolphins) and in space exploration… this is the plane on which Comrade Posadas lived.” They also firmly believed that Posadas’ “radiant and living thought… laid down principles to see further into the future.”

Sadly these writings seem unavailable on the Web.

We await their immediate publication!

  3. Reading that biography of Posadas, it struck me that that is what happens when you are an autodidact. We can only imagine the conditions that socialists/Trotskyists had to endure in Latin America, and so it ill behoves you to ridicule a brave group of people, albeit mistaken. Incidentally, I have spent a lifetime reading fortean literature, and is interesting that in the 50s and 60s, Latin America was regarded by UFOlogists and New Agers as the ‘Flying Saucer Capital’ of the world. I remember one book by that fraud Lopsang Rama that went into great detail. Maybe, Posadas was influenced by that talk?

  4. Surely at this time we should recall Juan Posadas’s heroic struggle as the nppowerhouse of the 1930’s Estudiantes de la Plata midfield.

  5. It’s not odd that Posadas took the ideas about dolphins seriously.

    This was a NASA funded experiment.

    Then things “happened”.

    ” A woman who had sex with a dolphin as part of a scientific study has spoken out for the first time.

    During the swinging 60s, animal researcher Margaret Howe Lovatt was part of a Nasa-funded experiment on the US Virgin Islands to teach the intelligent sea creatures how to speak English.

    In 1963 she helped turn a house into a domestic dolphinarium by flooding it with knee-deep water, where researchers could study the animals from their home.

    It was there she met Peter, an adolescent dolphin she described as ‘sexually coming of age’.

    As the two bonded, their relationship soon progressed to a more physical level.

    Margaret said: “Peter liked to be… with me. He would rub himself on my knee, my foot or my hand and I allowed that.

    “I wasn’t uncomfortable – as long as it wasn’t too rough. In the beginning I would put him on the elevator and say you go play with the girls for a day.

    “It was just easier to incorporate that and let it happen, it was very precious and very gentle, Peter was right there, he knew that I was right there.”

  6. Juan R Posadas is well known for her ability to connect with the dolphins. I am sure her knowledge will help to understand the nature of dlophins
