Science, scripture and semiotics

Intimologies (and gnoxic studies) represent a semiotic confluence of science and scripture.
Scripture here means whatever you read (or write) with your whole body.
Science means the public, consensual process of the human dialog with nature.

Whole-body reading of the real can only be done from the inside, by the ‘first person.’ Reports and expressions of that reading can only represent it externally (i.e. for other readers).

Investigation of an internal process (such as whole-body reading) can only be done from the outside, by ‘third-person’ methods, using reports and expressions as data (necessarily incomplete and fallible).

Science without scripture loses its body. Scripture without science loses its head.
