Human communication is prevalently a mediated process.
Mediators are units of environment, which are attributed functions within the local value
set. They are utilised in such a way as to optimise the change of human states.
In this article, a mediator-centred interpretation of the human communication is given. The interpretation follows closely the concept of mediated interaction developed within physics. It is conjectured that collection of mediators, which the humans use, has a well-defined average. The averaged collection permits reliable interpretation as a human communication spectrum. Relation of the intensity of a spectral component with regard to different senses, and with regard to intensity of interaction is discussed.
