Picture: Emotions Mapped In The Human Body, 'Most Accurate' Visualization Of Emotion-Related Bodily Sensations
Basic actions: Do, Feel, Control, Contribute
Genre: Horror (Fear), Tragedy (Sorrow), Humor (Happiness), Romance (Love), Action (Courage), Hero (Pride),
Research: Fundamental (understand), Applied (use),

To transduce: to convert (as energy or a message) into another form <essentially sense organs transduce physical energy into a nervous signal>. Latin transducere to lead across, transfer, from trans- + ducere to lead
Example: Gut-feeling = To smell the right way
"Cells have an infallible sense of smell that tells them which direction to grow in to move closer to the source of a scent. Now, researchers have now learned how this sense of smell works."
Picture: The PS (polarity site, yellow traces) is a Sensor, Processor and Motor all in one – a multi-fuctional instrument that controls cell growth and movement. Source
"A frequent problem faced by cells is that they are surrounded by a promising cloud of scent and must determine the direction of its source. Nerve cells, for example, form long extensions that are attracted to signals from other cells in order to produce the network that forms the nervous system; similarly, scavenger cells recognise the scent of harmful germs in order that they can pursue and destroy them."
"The essential components of the machinery include;
1) Protein Cdc42 (the Wheel) , which carries Receptors (the Nose, forwards the signal ) on the membrane.
2) Protein Cdc24 (the Brake)
PS is moving across the cell membrane and looking for a stronger chemical signal. PS then creates a bulge in the cell at this location, which continues to grow towards the source of the signal
"The computer mode helped us to reduce the complexity to a few essential components"
Picture: Basic control system.
Matching (to target) system
Picture: PID-controller (Proportional (height), Integral–derivative
Picture: Controller takes the signal, compares with the Set-Point, and gives a recommendation
Homeostasis: to be in balance/equilibrium link
Picture: Reflex (self control) bypass the slower Central Control (spinal cord).
Signals: Conveys information (message), Signal-processing
Noice is an unwanted signal.
Any signal can be categorised/labeled - sampled into "accounts".

The above is also valid within Philosophy/Sociology/Psychology
* Freedom from restrictions - right to deviate
* Protection from deviations
Bell curve - the mountain
Deviate from the Norm
a) external motivation - requires energy
To drift into a Norm - least resistance (unreflectively imitate others)
b) internal motivation - less energy
Bell curve - the valley (depressions)
Individuals are most likely to be their own best judge. Also the most motivated.
But some needs help (f.e. to protect their rights)
Good Communication/Signal --> Cells live longer --> Longer/Happier Life
Summary: Good (quality) Relationships makes you live longer = Good Communication/Signals
Addictions (drugs, media, etc) is a substitute for Low Quality Connections
Our Outlier-actions doesn't always define us.
Terrorists, creates fear in minorities.
Poverty is the opposite of Justice.
