Aspects

Meaning design happens continuously – even now. This permanent cycle that allows us to interact  with the world could be called consciousness cycle. It consists of four domains: perception, thinking, communication and acting. Our interfaces to the world are our senses (Perception) - 10% of it consciously. We translate those perceived stimuli into  thoughts, which are linked with existing mental models and generate new thoughts (Thinking). In order to communicate those, we look for appropriate formulations, thus the correct words. Further means of expression are pictures, music, gestures, body posture,  in addition, smell or gourmet creations (Communication). The next step is publication or statement, which is supported by our behavior and action (Act). This leads eventually to perceptible effects, which are perceived by senses. The cycle begins again  (see illustration).

The four domains go across two axles: information character and processing level. Information is the  interface to the environment and goes from sensuous perception to ‚linguistic’ communication. Processing level describes the form of dealing with the environment and extends from internal thinking to external acting. The result is a holistic,  multi-sensual study of the world. Therefore designing of meaning takes care of holistically visual, auditory, kinesthetic, olfactory and gustatory influences, emotional and rational thought processes as well as behaviors and actions.
