the merkwelt (German: Merkwelt, meaning “way of viewing the world”, “peculiar individual consciousness”) is a concept in robotics, ethology and biology that describes a creature or android’s capacity to view things, manipulate information and synthesise to make meaning out of the universe. In biology, for example, a shark’s merkwelt for instance is dominated by smell due to its enlarged olfactory lobes whilst a bat’s is dominated by its hearing, especially at ultrasonic frequencies.
