Since the development of the first telescopes and microscopes at the beginning of the 17th century, human visual acuity has been increased by a factor of about 100,000 with technical aids. The insights that came with these developments changed the view of the world several times. Difficult measurements, mass media, and social channels reveal completely different relationships in contrast to experiences with human sensory organs alone. Above all, phenomena can be observed that have not been visible for a long time. For example that the properties of a photon change when it is observed or measured. This extraordinary phenomenon has been known for over a hundred years and cannot be explained by models of classical physics or the general world view.
This phenomenon raises a question that was already discussed in Ancient Greece. Does the human body own other ways of transmitting information besides the known cognitive channels? Even if one look is enough to change the properties of a photon. And even if it is generally proven that photons move into the eye due to the reflection from surfaces and not vice versa. If this unexplainable interaction is associated with an unknown transfer of information, it is highly probable that it is not solely related to the function of the eyes. In the tangible world, information is either bound to matter as an information carrier or to electromagnetic waves in the transmission of information. In the world of quantum information, both the measurement of the speed of information and the form of transmission itself is puzzling.
While information transfer in the macroscopic range is concretely describable and calculable, information transfer in the microscopic range remains with many uncertainties on an abstract level.
In order to be able to integrate any abstract information transmission into everyday life, even if it is not yet measurable, and to be able to incorporate it into current models of perception and cognition, all these aspects of human interaction are to be summarized and simplified here under the term outception.
This term should include the information transfer in the macroscopic range such as concrete speech, facial expressions, gestures, and posture. As well as those in the microscopic range such as abstract thoughts and feelings. Thus, all aspects of human information processing can be considered here, which takes place in a measurable as well as non-measurable (but observable), an active as well as passive interaction of a healthy body with a healthy mind in an ideal environment.
