content outline
"The qualities that make humans beings unique are the ability to use symbols and the ability to use tools, so it is not at all surprising that the discipline that concerns itself with the use of symbols as a tool is one that can subsume all other disciplines and encompass the entirety of humanity’s accomplishments." Hopper

Communication is the master discipline that subsumes all other disciplines.
Cosma embodies that discipline and provides a variety of interfaces to it.
