Abstract

This chapter builds on the book topic using Peirce’s semiotic theory. It illustrates how perception integrates semiosis and, therefore, is abductive because it can be corrected and, consequently, criticized. For this reason, the path of investigation is not lived only by the science of the laboratory, but also by all those who experience the continuum of time, space, language, and limits of life extension.
