We argue that there is special value in viewing any given map as a unique collection of patterns. Symbolisation acts to give emphasis to specific qualities among those patterns. The paper builds on the idea of being able to place any given pattern within a multi dimensional ‘pattern space’ (borrowing from Edelman’s ideas on shape space). The paper also borrows from the ideas of Zacks and Tversky’s ideas on event structures, and argues that patterns can be modelled as objects within an object… CONTINUE READING
