Noticing is the great democratic experiment, to which governments or small egalitarian communities, even lovers aspire. Noticing, not ideology, religion nor the nation state, is our greatest community. Kant mentioned a sensus communis, or an invisible community of everyone who has taste if they judge something beautiful, if not reflecting a private self-interest, but why limit this community to taste and the beautiful, or to aesthetic experience? Awareness is our first community. Everything that has, does or will ever happen presupposes someone is aware, someone notices. From the advent of awareness, from our long rise up and into consciousness, from researches in every art and science, from the most intimate, individual experiences, what is “happening” reveals what is noticed.
