Immediately Recognised Patterns

The Simple and Familiar

Immediately recognisable patterns are those recognised due to simplicity and/or familiarity. Extremely simple shapes and relations are often easily describable mathematically or formulaically. Familiar shapes and relations include common organic constructs, and elements that the user is accustomed to finding in their environment.

Familiar elements can include "depth," that is, the perception of "deep" objects is immediate, even if complete decoding of the depth of the object is never successful (or attempted). The deep object is understood as deep, and can be dealt with as such, without requiring further thought if there is a more pressing concern.

Perception of mathematical formula by mathematicians -- complex forms understood rapidly

Ability to detect minor changes in a cluttered office.

Ability to understand human speech with familiarity.
