It's like when you're an American looking for news about America on BBC. You know all big media these days is corrupt and manipulated and biased, but it is, nonetheless, done in the service of manipulating a specific population. BBC, then, can only spin so much of the full volume of data processing through their apparatus, (and in a way that does not exhibit a perceptible contradiction - in an imaginary newsmedia that spun all information relative to all potential viewers, the overall contradictions would cancel its legitmacy and believabilty), and so you have to ask, which data points would be more likely to be tweaked? Those points that are significant/meaningful to the mass British psyche, that's what. So as an American, if I want news that is less corrupt, relative to me, it makes sense that I would go to another country's national news-source? They aren't trying to brainwash me, I'm an American (sure they might like to, but at some point it becomes unreasonable to do so, for the reasons above). So isn't BBC then more authentic to me than CNN?
First things first, that's not a picture of me, although it could be any one of us. It's a painting by Alex Grey.
Next, the Limbic Signal is an extension of my book Hidden Scents: The Language of Smell in the Age of Approximation. It's a work of non-fiction that tries to understand the dearth of information on the topic of Smell. In other words, you can't Google smells, so I'm here to spark interest in your hidden sense, and to help you find answers where a text-based search algorithm cannot. The blog Network Address is a personal archive that I like to keep online for easy access.
I'm a thirty-something male from Suburbia, New Jersey, and worked for some time as a high school visual arts instructor, and more recently as a technical consultant. In my spare time I am an independent researcher and writer.
Hidden Scents The Language of Smell in the Age of Approximation is my first attempt at authoring a work of non-fiction, and serves as a response to the dearth of information on the topic of Smell.
