Communication

Communication is a hard one to define. Not only is communication impossible to prevent, but it is also not exclusive to humanity. We see consistent communication throughout the animal kingdom as well, and if you have had a dog or domestic pet of some kind you would have personally experienced this. The difference with humans is we can think about ourselves communicating and consciously decide to alter our behaviour depending on our perception of various situations. Furthermore when you first think of communication, speaking or verbal comes to mind. Therefore deciding to not verbally communicate also transmits a perception from another person. The only guaranteed fact regarding communication is it takes another intelligent being on the other side to perceive this process.
