This demonstrated that the child can perceive a narrative before their language skills would enable them to describe the scene. Jerome Bruner flashed incongruous scenes (such as a discus thrower with a cello not a discus in his hand) before subjects for very brief periods of time, gradually increasing the exposure until people were able to take in the whole scene. He found that people embedded what they saw in a narrative, bending the narrative to accommodate incongruities. Jean Mandler (who introduced the idea of scripts and schemata as elementary structures of the mind) showed that experience which does not get structured narratively sufffers loss in memory.

The new concept arises as a solution to a problem which the development of the science up to that point had posed but could not solve. Without the already-existing system of scientifijic knowledge and practice in the fijield, no anomaly could arise and neither the need nor the opportunity to develop the new concept would be possible. In that sense, a new concept contains all previous development of the science in the very process of negating it and restructuring it on a new narratives and metaphors 45 foundation.

Further, the methods which work very well for the scientifijic study of material objects do not work so well when the objects under study are thought-objects, if indeed ‘thought-object’ is a meaningful concept at all. You just cannot succeed in a science of thought-forms while ignoring the results of philosophy, which anticipated the problems experienced by the Psychology of Concepts by at least two hundred years, although without the benefijit of experimental methods. ’ The pervasive influence of the digital image in our lives seems to reinforce this idea, but have you noticed that when there is some disturbance in transmission and the digital image momentarily breaks into much larger pixels?
