potentially not sensed at all times) in the realm of the physical to the
minds and/or senses of various physical sentient beings.

1. Primary Specially Sensed Communication Agent: (That which founded and
supports the physical and/or other types of universes i.e. spiritual,

     C. Special sensible mobile agents: (Nonliving special entities that
function and thrive through random contact with/and use of living
organisms).{Viruses or prions, protoplasm, ectoplasm, or other
