Sound Moving Beyond Language

Ben uses sound to not just communicate but also to see. Think dolphins and bats.


DealBreaker's John Carney has suggested that given the theory that the earliest languages were click-based, perhaps it is possible that our vocal cords developed out of a need to not just communicate but also to see in the dark. If this were true then Ben's ability to echolocate may not be a new adaptation but rather the reawakening of a long-dormant trait.
