Excerpt from "Expedition of the Psyche: Dimaond Edition"

"Every day that we wake up, we face an ocean of stimulants, many of which occur from our exterior world. Each light particle bombards our occipital lobe with a series of action potentials rushing through each axon, escaping from the tips of hundred of dendrites, neuron to neuron. Communication and connectivity intermingled and propagated among each hemisphere of the brain establish a way for us to conceive the random array of light to merge into an image that we can perceive to be at our eyes that we can interact with.Sight itself is not enough for us to get around this world; we also have touch, taste, smell, sound. All of these have been the ways that our bodies evolved to detect change in the universe. These are the ways that we are able to see the contrast, e.g. hot or cold, soft or rigid, sweet or sour, loud or quiet, etc. What we sometimes forget to include into the picture of the way we see the world is that there are other ways of perceiving everything around us. Every single one of our neurons are connected in a way that is completely different than the brain connectivity of another person, leading to differences; differences in interpretation that show how different paths can get us to the same conclusion. Through these light differences, we already perceive different worlds.The amount of cells we have to sense touch in our finger tips, or our lips, can vary. If we have fewer antennae to catch the information coming at us, we will have less of a spike in activity and we will experience a lesser experience than someone else with more receptors. This happens all over the body. With vision, having more or less rods and cones effects our way of seeing colors, or how well we see in the dark. With smell, having more receptor cells on the olfactory membrane will allow us to experience a world much like a hound; one that can collect the scent of something, and follow it with precision, allowing us to have a way of seeing with smell. A mix between the sight and smell, we begin to experience synesthesia, a crossed signal between two senses. Our world doubles by combining two senses together, doubling the amount of information being utilized for observing the universe around us, effectively doubling the size of the universe itself, at least in our minds.Why stop there, if we increase the amount of taste receptors on our tongue, or differentiate it to a more refined state, we can start to detect the most subtle of flavors; an ability that breaks up the food into many different particles and micro nuances by having receptors for each possible interaction between molecules, we will be able to experience a new world of taste. Now we are capable of detecting the slightest of changes in our produce. We can tell if the food is lacking in a certain nutrient, or detecting finer amounts of toxins that could be present. This would allow us to know more about the environment it all came from by tasting whether or not the plant was malnourished in some way; not enough water, sunlight, micronutrient in the soil, etc. This can allow us to build a picture of the origins of the food and have knowledge whether or not the climate it grew in was unbalanced. We can start to notice the slightest of changes that might occur between a certain area produce is grown, telling us about the climate, rainfall and sunshine, richness of the soil and have an idea of the environment around it. Adding another layer of seeing and experiencing the world that is around us; another layer that would give us more information about how the world actually is. Perceiving something that others cannot and being aware of more information gives us an advantage at navigating the dark waters of life.Our ears work by picking up sound vibrations that are in a particular range of hertz, range of frequency by vibrating little hairs in our inner ear to match the same frequency as the sound wave, creating a visual representation of the movement of little hairs, moving in the shape of the original sound wave, from which the sound wave travels through the brain once again, allowing us to translate one particular wave in an infinite sea of waves. We can only catch wave that range between 2 Hz and 20,000 Hz, but what of the rest of the sounds? If our range gets skewed by either having more or less stereocilia, or more or less specialized anatomy, we would be either limited to a smaller range of perception, or open up to a range that has never been experienced by us.Blind individuals start to repurpose their occipital lobe to translate sound inputs, allowing them to “see” through the sounds that they are able to catch, giving them larger equipment to decipher the minor changes of sound. Directionality, speed, timbre, etc. begin to play a bigger role in their life because they are able to decipher and incorporate more information for their understanding of the world. If we were to harness this, we would be again thrown into a chasm of new experiences filled with new information and new depths of reality which others cannot perceive.All of these combined form an alien vision of life. Surely, something that cannot be perceived must not exist. But if it permeates through us and we have no equipment to pick up a signal, it will pass through us without sounding any alarms or starting any electrical impulses, bypassing us completely unnoticed.A world so infinite, so vast, coexisting with everyday life, passing through us, existing outside our perception, interacting, colliding, interfering with each other or combining into something new. These waves, just like the ones we pick up with our senses, carry their own information that carry along worlds never before conceived; and if some have a wider range perception, it would allow them to "see" the world from a larger, more complete perspective, submerged in worlds that are interwoven with the life that we all go through every single day.Every organism has his own “umwelt” and if we can peer past ours, what will we uncover?"
