Feel The Vibe Stoffel Kuenen 2002 biofeedback, social, interaction
once you become a b/wearer first you get a feel for what the subtle signals from cellipus tell you when there are no other people around (biofeedback) second you get a feel for how the signals behave when you are with other people third you get a feel for what the subtle signals mean when the cellipi around enable you to feel the signals from cellipi of other b/wearers (social-biofeedback) finally, your awareness of the psycho-physiological interactions in a social setting has been raised and cellipus becomes redundant
