It is also possible to put Mercury into modern terms. He is the Modulator. Modulation is the principle of impressing information onto what would otherwise be random, meaningless action in the physical world. For example, a pattern imposed upon radio waves converts the waves from being mere noise.1Robert Hand, "Mercury, the Modulator," in Essays on Astrology (Atglen, PA: Schiffer, 1982).
