Our interaction with the outside world is effectively unconscious, some estimates say that only 0.01% of our neural activities are consciously fired, leading us to critically question the extent of our involvement in everyday actions and decisions. Our conscious perception has been compared to a black box program, a serial protocol communication machine in a multi-parallel environment. In our digital age this analogy is undoubtedly pertinent: big data, quantum noises, chaotic information, political and social complexities, and cultural biases – an overflow of stimuli. The unconscious mind grasps everything to induce a comfortable intelligibility of our informational surroundings. There are some slips, glitches, biases, noisy assimilations, errors, cacophonic impressions. Our vigilant apprehension of the environment is bent through our responsive apparatus as it seeks for meaning. Parsing is easier through this processed conglomeration, producing spasmodic psychological illusions and phantomatic bleeps.
