    I believe that much that is said, written and forecasted by astronomy and cosmology still belongs to the realm of fantasy and speculation. But that´s what makes it so interesting from a literary point of view.

    It is story telling even when it is not viewed as science fiction.

    Yes, I believe there is a relation between science fiction and science itself. Some actual experiments probably gave rise to imaginary situations in the past.

    Whales and dolphins live ‘human-like’ lives
    "The long list of behavioral traits dolphins and whales share with humans and other primates includes:

    – Working together for mutual benefit
    – Teaching others how to hunt and cooperative hunting
    – Using tools
    – Complex vocalizations -‘talking’ to each other – including regional group dialects
    – Signature whistles that are unique to individuals
    – Name recognition
    – Interspecific cooperation (working with humans and other species)
    – Adult animals looking after youngsters that aren’t their own
    – Social play"

    Sure. I'm linking it to the thread "About animals" that is buried somewhere.
