Mark Said "In short, the brain stores and reassembles images, not words."
I'm not sure this is strictly true Mark, given the eight general types
of intelligence Visual/Spatial, Logical/Mathematical, Linguistic, Interpersonal,
Intrapersonal, Musical, Bodily kinesthetic and Spiritual
I would say my brain, what there is off it, does a little processing
on any possible affordances available based on the context. If I'm in
a Kinesthetic interaction then it is true that I'm likely not to
bother reading signs, e.g [Push] beside a handle when the 'handle'
tells me 'pull' from my Kinetic memory.
However, if a different example; if I'm responding to design
discussion with an engineer I will tend to rely on my linguistic
processes to recall specifications/user defs/case studies, etc when
putting an argument together (as well as some interpersonal
reasoning). I dont feel like I'm using much in the way of images when
scanning my memory for references within documents. Similarly, in a
room full of people I do not reach for my phone when one rings,
because it doesnt sound like mine.
In short, and I'm happy to be corrected by someone who's studied this,
I think the brain will utilize one of the eight intelligences based on
context. Its not always visual.
