What is Sentience/Cognitive-Sentience

Handbook of Research on Global Media’s Preternatural Influence on Global Technological Singularity, Culture, and Government
The capacity/ability of human to experience feelings/sensations (Sentience, n.d.) as reactions to the interaction with information, which in the inferior organisms on the evolutionary scale can be also interpreted as internal sensitivity to information (Gaiseanu, 2021f). Cognitive-sentience is the ability to explore reality, involving the informational system of the organism, as a tool of experience and knowledge for the perception/interpretation/understanding of information, according to own criteria and needs for survival (Gaiseanu, 2019a).

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.
