Primal Messaging
Signaling our limbic systems
Why do so many people love their pet dogs so much? How does a dog communicate so profoundly with its owner? How does wagging a tail create such a strong bond of affection and attachment? The answer seems to be that the dog is signaling our emotional center in a very simple yet profound and powerful way. I call this messaging system Primal Messaging or Limbic Calculus Informally, people sometimes use words such as chemistry or vibes with a similar meaning.

Definition
Signaling between the limbic systems of two beings. This signaling is often non-verbal, and often takes place below the level of consciousness.

Semantics and Syntax:


We signal messages from our limbic system to the limbic system of others using a variety of symbols, including facial expression, non-verbal emblems, voice inflection, body position, etc. Most of these messages pertain to our most basic needs. Here is the basic vocabulary of those messages:
