What is it like to talk with a chimpanzee? Is it likely that we can communicate with creatures from outer space? What can we learn from primitive messages left by an ancient people? Challenging our old assumptions about language, this book introduces the reader to an important frontier of science, including amazing new experiments with self-learning computers that can teach themselves, chimpanzees that can both speak and understand a complicated human sign language, and scientific investigations into the supernatural world of ESP. Going beyond the popularized accounts, Michael Chester provides a realistic look at the "secret lives" of plants and the difficulties we will have in communicating with other worlds. "Deeper Than Speech" is a lively, thought-provoking blend of theory and fact – a fascinating glimpse into a mysterious world where speech takes on new meanings and is heard in strange new forms.
