Two recurring problems with communication (when communication does occur):
The Dopeler EffectThe tendency of stupid ideas to seem smarter when they come at you rapidly.
The Dancing Bee EffectHoney bees dance to tell other bees where good nectar can be found, but the dance can only represent directions along the plane of the earth's surface, i.e. it can't represent height. B. F. Skinner put a nectar source high up over a nest and let one of the honey bees return from the nectar to the nest so he could see what the bee did. The bee very dutifully reported back the knowledge of the good nectar source, and proceeded to dance a completely incoherent dance, which other bees very dutifully then tried to follow.
