Today I met an old retired Air Force officer who claims that in the 1960s the Air Force conducted secret projects concerning possible communcations with alien life forms. This fellow is the Uncle of a friend who was here in town to visit. He said one project was called "Contour". He said that this project involved understanding "linguistic fundamentals of communication between different species", and that one part of the project focused on understanding how "primates such as a gorilla might be taught to communicate." According to this retired officer, the Air Force was "publically disregarding UFOs," but privately was involved in "intense research concering inter-species communication." He explained how one fascinating part of the project involved taking a gorilla that had been raised amongst humans and taught "basic sign language" back into the field to see how it related to and communicated with wild gorillas and if the domesticated gorilla could act as a"go-between" to communicate between the researchers and the wild gorillas. All of this was supposed to have happened to, "help us learn fundamentals of language that could be helpful in communcication with alien species." I kid you not. This is what he told me.
