The messages carried are instructions telling the recipient to perform certain tasks without question, like the General instructing junior troopers. These tasks may be carried out over a long period of time (such as growth), may be cyclical (menstruation) fight or flight response (adrenaline) and many other varieties of activities.

- Heart rate
- Sleep cycles
- Reproductive cycles and growth
- Mood and stress levels
- Metabolism and appetite
