Our Culture has No Name for this Way of Sensing
Humans are so unaware of broadband sensing, that our culture doesn't have any clear descriptive name for it.
Peripheral vision is the word we use for how horses and pigeons see everything centrally and roughly 350° around them. But periphery usually only means the boundary or edge. We need clear words to think clearly ... For me it is clear, my broadband field of vision has a periphery.
Broadband listening or smelling appear to be totally unnamed.
The lack of a name always indicates a lack of cultural recogniton. Without a scientific name, or even a clear colloquial name, we can expect a whole range of unrecognised and unresearched physiological and psychological effects which sensing the world like this has.
Our culture has not recognised this, probably because animal trainers and researchers mainly study how animals focus, and to what extent animals can learn from us, and develop memory and abstract thought.

Our Cultures Names
Peripheral vision is the word we use for how horses and pigeons see everything centrally and almost 300° around them. But humans use the peripheral vision only as a support for a central focus area, when driving and cycling, and periphery means the boundary or edge. We need clear words to think clearly ... For me it is clear, my broadband field of vision has a periphery.
Non-selective sensing fails to describe being actively receptive and on the watch. Unfocussed or defocussed denote unclarity, but everything is quite clear.
Panoramic seeing or listening would sometimes be a good word, if you want to call it that, you can. But the clearest modern word to differentiate it from focussed sensing, would be broadband seeing, listening, smelling and sensing.
