What is Epigenetic/Epigenetic Processes

Handbook of Research on Global Media’s Preternatural Influence on Global Technological Singularity, Culture, and Government
Refers to the modifications in the genetic system due to persistent changes/cues of the external conditions as informational sources, which do not involve however alterations of the genetic system of species, and are reflected in new features and behaviors of adaptation, transmissible to the next generations (Epigenetics, n.d.; Gaiseanu, 2019e, 2019b).

The Cognitive-Sentient Exploration of Mediated Reality: From Proto-Cognition/Epigenetic Informational Processes to Big Data-Assisted Prediction
Florin Gaiseanu (Science and Technology of Information, Romania)
DOI: 10.4018/978-1-7998-8884-0.ch010
This chapter described the intimate processes of the informational system of the human body and cells and their effect on the mind in order to understand how information is received/operated and integrated in the genetic structure of the organism by epigenetic mechanisms. Individual education/learning are the basic processes allowing the knowledge/judgement of mediated reality, and for the formation of decision criteria, beliefs, and mentality. The contributive role of media in education/behavior is highlighted, revealing the positive/negative effects of the persuasive messages in interaction with individual/collective beliefs and mentality. The inoculation techniques applied in various fields of media are discussed from the informational perspective, emphasizing the implication of the cognitive centers on such processes. Big data analysis and predictive conclusions on the social effects are used nowadays as feedback support, helping the optimization of the relation between audience and media products.
