new sense metaphors

Spimes will smell each other, more than see or hear each other. If we were an olfactory people, spimes might not seem so novel. Pheramones are rich with information about who's been where, who's been doing what, and who's who -- rich with information about what a thing is, what a thing does, what group a thing belongs to, whether there are more of the thing, what the thing might do next, and when it's going to make more of itself. My dog lives more nearly in a spime world than I do. Taste and smell and make some spimes.
