Sense Receptor, founded and run by Matthew Hart, was incorporated in 2022. Sense Receptor is a media outlet focused on the intersection of science, technology, politics, and public health, with a particular focus on everything related to COVID-19; particularly the COVID-19 “vaccines,” which are causing untold amounts of suffering and death around the globe every day.
The content on Sense Receptor is largely straight reporting of events, interviews, and data, although there are opinion pieces as well. Opinion pieces are marked [Opinion]. There is also some lighthearted content on the site—particularly related to interesting science and technology breakthroughs, as well as sci-fi and fantasy worlds—because talking about crimes against humanity can be quite bleak, and a fun story here and there is necessary for morale.
As for the name “Sense Receptor,” it is a play on “sensory receptor.” Sensory receptors themselves are nerve endings—or dendrites—of sensory neurons, which pick up on physical changes in the world around a given body and send the “sensation” of those changes to the brain by way of electrical impulses in the nervous system.
Just as sensory receptors allow people to develop a “sense” of the world around them—including the way it looks, feels, tastes, sounds, and smells—Sense Receptor exists to help people understand the most complete picture of what’s happening in the news; to help them make sense of a story, and how that story links with other, perhaps seemingly unrelated, stories.
