Introduction: Mouse

Mickey Mouse or the computer mouse? We mean the computer mouse. This section looks into the making of synactors,—tools and techniques for making them,— as well as the history of their evolution.

Synactor self-replication is not currently a possibility. Synactors come into being through human agency. Computer synactors are constructed by humans on a computer using mouse and keyboard or tablet input. They exist virtually and digitally by means of the computer. They do not have physical existence beyond their digital existence within the computer but that does not mean they are not real. They are real but they have a virtual existence.
