The Signal is in this context a “sensory cue”, a clue, a something and or an action, singly or in combination, of sight, of sound, of touch, of smell, be it subtle or gross a feature of the natural or built environment that contributes to and aids in shaping the perception of every living being.
Consciously and unconsciously, the human neuroendocrine system parses the sensed world about, managing perceived awareness in rich and complex ways.
This perception management, the extracting and processing of sensory input is among the most powerful expressions of life, particularly sentient life we know of.
The ability to manipulate this meta sensory capacity is the vehicle for the highest and lowest expression of human experience, with the finding of ways to unethically influence the behaviour of society a major preoccupation since the dawn of recorded history.
Our narratives seek with your consent, to dramaturgically present human beliefs and understandings formed over countless millennia, across a plurality of cultures, striving in fits and starts to understand the universe, via natural science, citizen science, “to know” deeply.
We hope that this will over time, aid us in forging an intentional common sense, a living mythos that enables widespread collaborative creativity, cooperative problem-solving skills that successfully accommodate our fear-based limitations, and through that collective resilience allow humankind to better thrive as a species.
“What senses do we lack that we cannot see or hear another world all around us?”
― Frank Herbert, Dune (1965)
