Comprehensibility, Incomprehensibility


Associations with deep elements are the same as those for foreign elements. Both play on the frustration of the user's need to understand their environment. Deep elements, however, have an obvious avenue for dealing with them. It is possible to learn, to ask, or to otherwise decode the depth (or be assured that there is no depth) of the piece. This is often not possible with simple foreign elements which merely refuse to match our ideas of the world.
