After reading a thread on memory upload, I wondered if MU could be used as a form of universal translator. Imagine uploading the memory of a dolphin (or cuttlefish, or whatever) into a virtual reality enviroment and plugging into those feelings. You could experience what a dolphin sees, feels, and dreams about. What is there perception of reality? What would 'seeing' with sonar feel like? Do they have a concept of philosophy, or their own history? Maybe we wouldn't need to look beyond the planet to discover intelligent life. I just think that if MU is ever feasible then cross-species communication would be the next logical step.
