Communicating emotional experiences is something core to being human, yet also notoriously difficult. With this considered, we acknowledge previous work in bio-responsive and neurofeedback systems which facilitate the externalization of subjective experiences, which highlight potential for the appropriation of Neurofeedback for communication. We present a demonstration that explores this opportunity through "Neo-Noumena", a communicative neuro-responsive system that augments the interpersonal communication of emotion through brain-computer interfacing and artificial intelligence, which interprets the users affective state and dynamically to others in mixed reality through two head-mounted displays. The user will, with a partner, experience their affective state translated into an aural swarm of procedurally generated, emotionally informative fractals.
