Signals

Chapter 4: (Signals) Inter-subjective signaling is an important form of cooperation and competition in which replicating types further their selfish interests.
16. (Coordination) Descriptions and other forms of communication are causal signals by which we might seek to cooperate with or manipulate our audience.
17. (Perlocution) Signals are strategies for inter-subjectively coping within our natural environment that do not correspond to, represent or describe in some objective or disinterested way internal or external reality.
18. (Beliefs) Beliefs and signals are not the same and the goodness of each is orthogonal to the goodness of the other.
19. (Consciousness) We are more conscious of our signals than we are of our beliefs.
20. (Pragmatism) The meaning of signals is determined by the effects that they have between the signaler and his audience as they all interact with the natural world.
